Really? Mind showing a source? I can't find anything online to suggest it's an issue. The closest I saw was a female guard becoming pregnant after a relationship with an inmate.

A more sensational story occured further afield in the US. Four female guards got pregnant to one inmate. Two of them tattooed his name on themselves.

Here's a PDF from Amnesty International.

Yea, power and resource imbalances result in higher incidents of sexual assault. Unfortunately that goes without saying. I was searching for evidence of 'many of the pregnancies in prison [being] caused by guards.' That article, so far as I could see, didn't address that. Besides which it's not practical to compare UK and US prisons too closely.

Searching for sexual assault involving prison guards in UK prisons revealed a strange trend:

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/apr/29/prison-officer-sacked-and-jailed-for-having-sex-with-inmate-in-cell

Thrill-seeking, perhaps?

General sexual assault (ie, involving all reported instances, including those against or not involving prison guards) is addressed here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/737991/sexual-assaults-reported-prisons-exploratory-findings.pdf

Which is the best source I could find. It's not up-to-date and the figures, it claims, are probably inflated - it includes allegations, regardless of later findings.

The last Guardian article above includes this, which seems somewhat relevant:

Quote
Data released to the Guardian under the Freedom of Information Act shows 567 prison staff were sacked for misconduct between mid-2013 and mid-2018, including 39 for inappropriate relationships with prisoners, of whom at least 16 were women and at least 14 were men. Other misconduct charges included breach of security and assaulting prisoners.

However, this was published in 2019 so it's also beginning to age.

55 years after being sentenced and imprisoned for the murder of Malcolm X, Muhammad A. Aziz (released early in 1985, now age 83) and Khalil Islam (released early in 1987, died in 2009), have been cleared of all charges.
