California wants to put condoms in prisions

This means that they acknowledge that sex happens in prisons and they want to cut down on aids transmission.

As much as people like to make prison rape jokes, we have gotten to conditioned to thinking that rape in just something to expect in prisons, as if there's nothing wrong with it anymore.

Introducing condoms to prisons may not get to the root of the problem but it at least keeps them safer. Prisoners act like animals when we allow them to act like animals.

How about some fleshlights?

I don't see why this could be a bad thing. Considering that people assume inmates are living in gilded mansions and eat caviar on their plush goose down mattresses on the everyman's dime, I rather like the idea of keeping medical costs for inmates with life sentences who need expensive medical treatment for STDs down to a minimum.

Not a fan - seems like this is acknowledging that it's okay for prisoners to be raped by other prisoners, as long as no STDs are passed.

I guess this is a good idea. I never really thought about the STD transmission. As if rape wasn't bad enough.

Pointless IMO.

Minimal impact on STD transmission in a prison setting.

Creates an issue of using them to smuggle contraband and other nefarious purposes.

Apparently you guys are unaware that a lot of the sex that goes on in prison is actually consensual.
