Conjugal visitation

Reese, Geoffrey



Conjugal Visitation There are still a few state prison systems (e.g. New York, Connecticut, Mississippi) that allow conjugal visitation to prisoners confined to the Department of Corrections. Usually this accommodation consists of either trailers or efficiency structures located on the facitility. Most prisons allow these types of visits to occur over a period of several days and require approval and scheduling in advance. More importantly, inmates who wish to take advantage of this accomodation that's considered to be a "privelege" must satisfy certain institutional expectations, i.e. satisfactory conduct, compliance with programming and/or work assignments, etc. This mechanism is a positive deterrent of negative prisoner conduct. It is my opinion that EVERY state/federal prison, especially lower custody classified levels, should implement this privilege while utilizing it to also incentivize good behavior. The rationale being that it provides an outlet for suppressed testosterone and promotes a healthy expression of male sexuality, including "reproduction." this privilege would be undoubtedly "desired" and popular amongst prisoner populations anywhere in the U.S.A. Prisoner benefit accounts could easily be established to finance the trailers needed, as well as cover the cost of maintenance.
