    They should ban soaps in prison, instead.

    For minimal security prisons - non violent offenders sure why not
    All other prisons - no

    This is possibly the strangest question I've seen on this forum. What possible reasoning could support a yes answer? In an environment where sexual activity is forbidden what purpose would Viagra serve?

    If you want the inmates to serve hard time with stiff sentences, I think it could serve penal interests.

    "Sales" is a weird term to use. That implies there should be some prison market. If a prisoner requires ED treatment for their conjugal visits, I see no reason it can't be provided.

    Part of the point of prison is to deprive the prisoners of sexual activity. This is a part of the punishment.

    According to that logic, viagra shouldn't be sold.

    I'm not sure I'm sold on the logic however. I see prisons as ideally reformative, not punishing.

    Conjugal visits, allowed in a grand total of six states, are such a rare case exception that they are hardly relevant, but your point is valid for those rare situations.

    What do they need the blue pill for in prisons? Bending down to pick up soap in the washroom would become totally impossible then, without a chastity belt that is.

    Go right ahead, give prisoners Viagra, nutritious meals, free gym/exercise equipment, video games, TV... and quite a number of other "necessities"
    Prisoners are humans, and thus deserve all rights which the general public enjoys, right? EFFIN WRONG!!!

    Let's talk about the worst criminals here, not petty thieves.
    Are you telling me murderers and rapists got human rights? Are you off your effin' head? What about the rights of the people they violated? raped? killed? What about their victim's rights, which those criminals broke and proved having total disregard for by attacking good, productive, law abiding citizens, in first place? What about their VICTIMS HUMAN RIGHTS? and the rights of their families?

    CRIMINAL CONVICTS OF WORST KIND SHOULD HAVE NO RIGHTS!
    :make them work heaviest/worst (for a long and extended period of time) jobs as a punishment, for the sake of the populace and state. Make them, and their families, be obliged to repay (in real money) a specific and substantial sum of money to the victims and/or their families upon conviction.

    If you don't make convicted criminals (and their families) suffer for their SEVERE criminal actions, they will never learn/respect the truth about how much human dignity and life means, and that you should never violate it, in any way, shape or form.

    Well that was a balanced post.

    Corrective sentences are cost-efficient and generally good for your demographics.

    Particularly harsh crimes can recieve particularly harsh sentences, but there is a vast number of prisoners that are recieving unnecessarily harsh treatment, and it has a direct correlation with increased crime.

    So daft seems to support prisoners having access to Viagra so they can create more family members to help pay for their crimes.

    That's unconstitutional. You know, the whole "corruption of blood" thing?

    While that specifically deals with treason, the meaning of that clause has generally been accepted in our criminal justice system to mean that only the actual perpetrator of a crime can be punished or made to pay restitution for it. The only exception to this being that parents/legal guardians are still held financially liable for any damages caused by the criminal actions of any of their children who have not yet reached the age of majority.

    Yes, they should. No matter how terrible of a crime someone has committed, the state still has a duty to protect a criminal's right to life and basic human dignity while they are in the state's custody. While I agree life in prison shouldn't be made easy or enjoyable, I disagree that they should have no human rights whatsoever and pretty much be at the mercy of the personal whims of the prison staff. That kind of prison system has been tried before and do you know what the result was? Constant prisoner uprisings that led to a lot of unnecessary death and destruction.

    FYI, guys... due to the wording of the thread title, my email program decided to classify my email notifications as spam.

    Since that's kinda inconvenient for the rest of the threads I'm watching, I'll leave this one now...

    Yes, allow it only for people who are cleared to have sex with their visitors during conjugal visits, and who have a doctor's note that says that they can't get it up.

    Conjugal visits are a thing in the U.S., right?? And sex is allowed? Or has American TV been lying to me? If that isn't a thing then I don't see why you would want inmates to be buying viagra

    Six out of fifty states allow conjugal visits. Even in those states the combination of administrative restrictions and lack of facilities would probably qualify conjugal visits as "not a thing." So, yes, American TV has been lying to you.

    I figured.

    Either way, only allow inmates to buy viagra if they are allowed conjugal sexy-time visits and a doctor can verify that they can't get it up.

    I don't see how this makes any sense in the US prison system.

    In, say, a Nordic prison system on the other hand...

    I'm really afraid this question is asked with the creepiest intent.
