    Looking for a little action?
    You might want to try the San Francisco County Jail’s San Bruno lockup, where authorities have installed 16 condom machines for the jail’s 750 prisoners.
    The condom dispensers are the latest evolution in a safe-sex program that began in 1989, when health workers began distributing condoms to inmates as part of their counseling before they were released.
    And although sex among inmates technically is illegal, the Sheriff’s Department went ahead and installed the 16 machines anyway – one for each jailhouse pod – paid for by a pair of small grants from UCSF and a Southern California nonprofit.
    “It may be controversial,” Sheriff Michael Hennessey said, “but I think the larger health education message is important.”
    As for the chance that all those machines will actually promote jailhouse sex?
    The sex already takes place, says Kate Monico Klein, who is directing the program for the city’s Public Health Department. “If (providing condoms) saves one or two lives, it’s worth it,” she said.

    I imagine the jailhouse sex is about domination/ submission. No doubt condoms aren't a huge consideration in that equation...

    I don't think they're co-ed.

    I don't see what's wrong with this. Prison rape happens and I don't think it can be completely stopped. If someone really wants to rape, they're going to rape. There's probably some consensual sex going on, too.

    Since most inmates will eventually be released at some point in time, it would be best if they weren't also releasing their newly-acquired stids back into society too. So this is an effort to reduce the chances of that happening.

    I don't think abstinence-only education would work in Cell Block D. :lol:

    I hope CornHole reads this thread.

    Watch the documentary they are doing on the Maricopa County Jail on MSNBC, and then get back to me.

    Although I don't think the prison rapist really gives a shit to wrap it up. Some might. The victim (not all prison rape victims deserve the punishment, many do like child rapist, rapist themselves, murders etc.) might just have to live with the fact he got rape and not with the HIV or other STDs that come along with it!

    I doubt the majority of sexual contact in jail is rape. It for sure happens, but I think most of the time, it is not rape.
    But I doubt they would rap it up if they were raping someone.

    I see your point. Some or many of them may have a self-destructive personality and don't care about catching the clap.

    I don't really care about how much the prisoner's crotch burns from their brand-new STD. But I do care about him or her bringing it out into society when they get released. Anything within reason to reduce those chances is good by me.
