In "Criminal Intimacy", Regina Kunzel explores the sexual lives of prisoners and the sexual culture of prisons over the past two centuries - along with the impact of a range of issues, including race, class, and gender; sexual violence; prisoners' rights activism; and, the HIV epidemic - ultimately discovering a world whose surprising plurality reveals the fissures beneath modern sexuality itself. Drawing on a wide range of sources - as well as depictions of prison life in popular culture - Kunzel argues for the importance of the prison to the history of sexuality and for the centrality of ideas about sex and sexuality to the modern prison.
