Should the UK Remove Its Ban on Conjugal Visits in Prisons?

Posted on August 30th, 2014 by Sarah

Currently, the United Kingdom bans conjugal visits for prisoners unlike other European countries. UK prisons are considered public places by the Ministry of Justice; other countries see the issue differently. For instance, Canada allows these visits to keep family bonds strong during prison sentences. Likewise, nearly half of European countries allow such visits for well-behaved inmates. The Howard League for Penal Reform will now look into these issues, including consensual and coercive sex in prisons.

Recently, the Howard League dealt with three juvenile offenders that had been raped in prison. These cases brought to light the glaring lack of research into sexual education and sexual activity in jails. A committee from the Howard League will look into the current state of affairs in the UK prison system. Similarly, the committee wants to look into strengthening sexual education for inmates. Whether the conjugal visit policy should be lifted will be analyzed, too.

Without a doubt, coercive sex in prisons is a huge issue in the United Kingdom. Perhaps the country should lift its ban on these visits to improve conditions for inmates. Letting inmates spend years in prison without consensual intimacy puts those individuals behind developmentally, especially for teenagers. In other countries, allowing conjugal visits has produced desirable results. Adolescents and teens, especially, can develop at the same rate as their peers who aren’t in prison.

In today’s world, England’s ban on conjugal visits makes little sense. The Howard League’s proactive investigation into consensual and forced sex in prisons should yield many findings. Inmates deserve conjugal visits from their girlfriends and wives in order to stem sexual violence within prisons. Of course, thousands of people want to see their loved ones in a more intimate setting while they’re stuck in prison. It only makes sense to allow for inmates to interact with their loved ones on such a level.

Although withholding sexual favours on condition of certain conditions being met isn’t exactly new to the dynamics of male/female relationships, protesting as an organized group is a bargaining tool that’s relatively new on the social scene. An innovative group of women in a small town in Columbia have decided not to share a shag with their respective husbands until something is done about the deplorable state of the 35 mile stretch of road that connects the isolated village of Barbacoas to the rest of the province in which it’s located. The road is in such bad shape that despite being
