      Well they ARE in prison… so should they really be trying to make it easy for them to have sex?

      So Prison Fuck XXX by Falcon Studios is not an accurate picture of gay prison life??!!

      Guess I should stop smuggling those drugs then.

      I once interviewed gay porn star Michael Brandon, who had been in prison previous to beginning his main porn career. I asked him if real life prison was anything like the porn films. He said “Totally. It’s happening all the time, constantly. But there’s a kind of chivalry to it. When you come out as gay in prison, you become ‘the woman’. Even if you’re 300 pounds with a 10-inch dick and a back like a gorilla, you are ‘the woman’. And the woman is to be protected.”

      I dare say his experience is not universal, but there you have it.

      It’s far from ideal, but some perspective is in order: that they’re able to be together at all is a blessing few couples where one or both are incarcerated can have, and reducing prison rape is far more important. That they have to hide that they’re a couple at all or are stopped from even holding hands, though, is beyond silly.

      @EdWoody: That’s a bit of a different angle… though I have to point out that there are women with two out of the three.

      There are some places in the US (I’m not sure if they’re official or informal) where younger, more vulnerable inmates are recommended to find a “prison daddy” to hook up with ASAP to protect them and make rape or gang-rape less likely. This study is from the UK so I wonder how one in the US would differ?

      @EdWoody: I have sort of heard the same thing. A childhood friend str8-ish was locked up for 6 yrs. I would write and he would tell me about his wife and how he had got into fights protecting the openly gay dude. My friend actually did romantic things to convince the gay guy to play house with him.

      Coercive sex with prison authorities approval is OK. What hypocrisy, another moral high.

      I know someone who gay and is currently in a correctional facility, and he has told me that the sex scenes depicted in prison porn are so far from reality. He has been approached even though he is not out in there and has not had any issues. He has also made friends both straight and gay there as well. The sad thing is though, when a straight inmate has a visitor, he and his wife/girlfriend whatever basically come as close to having sex without penetration as possibly you could, but he can not even hold the hand of his boyfriend. There is a double standard in there. I am not saying that they should have liberties and freedoms, but they should be treated equally.

      @Brendan: I agree!

      Prison means, PUNISHMENT!

      Not a good time! Unless you are into being raped.
