Sexual intimacy is key to maintaining a strong, healthy marriage - especially a marriage that is expected to endure a prison sentence. By allowing these visits, you're giving families a better chance of staying together, thus decreasing the likelihood of recidivism.  By giving inmates this outlet, violent, brutal and traumatizing, non-consensual sex crimes in prisons would decrease - Texas already has a high rate of these.  All visits are a privilege and by having this incentive, inmates are definitely going to be "model prisoners" since no one wants anything coming between them and some private time with their spouse.

Allow Conjugal Visits in All Texas Prisons

Sexual intimacy is key to maintaining a strong, healthy marriage - especially a marriage that is expected to endure a prison sentence. By allowing these visits, you're giving families a better chance to stay together, thus decreasing the likelihood of recidivism. Also, inmates will be less frustrated and violent and brutal and traumatizing non-consensual sex crimes in prisons would decrease. By making the visit something to be earned, you're also giving inmates an incentive to be on their best behavior since no one wants anything coming between them and private time with their spouse.
