Macho Love: Sex Behind Bars in Central America is the first in-depth study of sexual culture and AIDS in Latin prisons. Readers will discover a shocking realization of how the interplay of sexual ideals, prostitution, manipulation, resistance, and power relationships are based on money, sex, drugs and violence. Offering information gathered from inmates in prisons as well as from the administrative staff, Macho Love contains excerpts from actual interviews so readers can hear the inmates themselves speak on life and sexuality in Latin American prisons.

Macho Love explores the life-threatening sexual culture in prisons and discusses issues and realities ill the Latin prison culture. Through this fascinating and informative book, readers will gain insight into homosexuality in prison as it relates to sexual orientation. For example, in Latin America a "cachero, " or a man who penetrates another man, is not considered a homosexual and often refuses to wear a condom, and most transvestites are prostitutes outside of prison and continue to prostitute themselves in prison. This book examines the different types of relationships that occur in prisons and the factors that place inmates at risk for contracting the HIV virus, such as not wearing a condom because of intoxication due to drugs and alcohol. Macho Love will give readers a stirring and emotional look at the various risks and dangers lurking in the Latin American prison culture.
