The women in prison film or WiP film is a subgenre of exploitation film that began in the early s and continues to the present day. Their stories feature imprisoned women who are subjected to sexual and physical abuse , typically by sadistic male or female prison wardens, guards and other inmates. The genre also features many films in which imprisoned women engage in lesbian sex. WiP films are works of fiction intended as pornography. The films of this genre include a mixture of erotic adventures of the women in prison. Prior to these films, another expression of pornographic women in prison was found in "true adventure" men's magazines such as Argosy in the s and s, although it is possible that Denis Diderot 's novel The Nun anticipated the genre. Nazis tormenting damsels in distress were particularly common in these magazines. Most women-in-prison films employ the same stock characters and formulaic situations.
