Men do not turn gay in prison. Nobody can turn gay. It's simply not possible to change sexual orientation. Sexual orientation is fixed at an early age, possibly at birth.

Men have sex with other men in prisons because there are no opposite-sex partners for them.

Sexual orientation is not determined by environment or circumstances. Being in a prison setting does not cause someone to change their sexual orientation. It is important to remember that sexual orientation is a complex aspect of a person's identity that is not chosen or influenced by external factors such as being in prison.

Is it true that most guys that are sent to prison turn out gay?

No. They don't actually turn gay. In an all male environment such as prison or the military, many men will turn to other men for sex. There's nothing unusual about this: most guys are capable of homosexual acts, even if we don't usually do it. Sex may also be used to dominate or humiliate another man, which is rape, of course. There are gay virgins, of course, just as there are straight virgins, who may discover their sexual orientation in such places. But the fact is, if you weren't gay before you went into prison, you won't be gay when you get out. (But you may have to admit to yourself that you're bisexual!)

Nothing can turn a straight man gay. There are gay young men (all ages) in different circles of society, but gym doesn't turn straight guys into gay guys.
