I fired off an e mail to the Ohio DRC, to ask what the big deal was about married prisoners having conjugal visits. Well here was their response...


This is in response to your e-mail concerning conjugal visits. Please be
advised our state per policy does not allow these visits. This is not a
matter ODRC will review in the near future. You may address these concerns
with the Office of Prisons at 1050 Freeway Drive, Columbus, Ohio 43229.

Thank you,

Pamela Rudolph
Publication and Communication Specialist

You tried! At least you got a response - so are you going to bombard them with mail or what? Good luck!

how funny are they.. well they need to get a grip they say this is not a matter they are going to review and then tell you to address it with the board of prisons.. how stupid can you be and still breathe??

I just don't see the big deal, I mean maybe if I put it to them like this.... How about letting the inmates EARN them?? Maybe it will help encourage them to behave while they are in. But I really do think they should consider it, what it going to hurt? I realize they are their for punishment, but why punish the wives/ girlfriends? I'll have to sit down and write a sensible letter reguarding this issue, but I'm sure this wont be the 1st time someone has questioned it, and I'm sure they'll have some stupid blah blah blah reason why not. But I'll write to them until they know me on a 1st name basis. lol
They'll be like oh no heres another letter from the horny woman. lmao! I'll let you know how it goes. :D

horsegal: looks like you got what is commonly know as a "standard reply email"!!! god forbid these people have to back up their assinine policies!

just a suggestion... but I would bombard them with research about the positive effects of conjugals.... I mean, there is data out there that CLEARLY shows such an incentive reduces inmate behavior problems, has a clear impact on reducingn recidivism, etc, etc, etc.... I would ask that they specifically address each point!!! (Lord knows they would have a hard time fighting LOGIC!!!) Also CC the letters to a nice list of legislators.... :) I wish you much luck!!! (What I wouldn't do for a lil' conjugal visit...) Fight the good fight!!
