Conjugal Visits for Missouri

Messages Sent So Far
The use of "family visits" would benefit the inmates, and their family's very much due to the much needed time for children to get to know their parents, parents to spend time with their children, husbands and wives to have time together and inmates to share time We are supporting the idea of conjugal visits in our Missouri State prisons to those who are incarcerated.
A conjugal visit is a scheduled extended visit during which an inmate of a prison is permitted to spend several hours or days in private, usually with a legal spouse. While the parties may engage in sexual intercourse, the generally recognized basis for permitting such a visit in modern times is to preserve family bonds and increase the chances of success for a prisoner's eventual return to life outside prison.

The use of "family visits" would benefit the inmates, and their family's very much due to the much needed time for children to get to know their parents, parents to spend time with their children, husbands and wives to have time together and inmates to share time with elder family that may no longer be present once released from prison. Conjugal visits would allow for much stress to be relieved from inmates, therefore less violence in prisons would occur. Also conjugal visits may decrease homosexuality in the Missouri Prison System. Visits are only permitted for registered domestic partners who are not themselves in custody. Even with such restrictions, the program helps some inmates reconnect with an important source of outside support as a reentry, reintegration, and recidivism-reduction strategy.
In the US, Extended Family Visit programs are justified by 5 of the 6 participating states on the grounds that it helps preserve the family. The hope is that maintaining familial relationships during incarceration will motivate prisoners to improve their behavior both behind bars and upon release. Additionally, the incentive of conjugal visits is that inmates are strongly motivated to comply with the various day-to-day activities and regulations of the prison. As a result, inmates consciously avoid an infringement which might disqualify them from having a conjugal visit.

The visit will usually take place in a structure provided for that purpose, such as a trailer or small cabin. Supplies such as soap, condoms, tissues, sheets, pillows, and towels may be provided.
