How do you feel about states trying to make condoms available to prison inmates?

They say it is to help stop the spread of HIV, however, sex in prison is illegal anyway. Thoughts?

  • Just so they don't give them lube. They don't deserve lube.

  • Illegal or not, it obviously goes on all the time. I don't have a problem with condoms being available.

  • Illegal or not, it happens. And just like my kids having sex before they're married or at least adults: I don't want it to happen, but if it's going to, I'd rather they be protected so they don't get every disease under the sun and spread it to others.

  • I'd rather pay for condoms than a lifetime course of drugs - it's not just HIV, it's all the other STD's they go in with, too. Wonder how many times a strain of herpes or gonorrhea can mutate when it's passed around the same community for 20 years.

    ^^^ So is whatever they did to end up there to begin with. All they care about is getting their freak on.

  • I agree with the others. But there also is the question about forced sterilization in women's prisons..
