Conjugal Visit

What a great tradition: the conjugal visit.

A conjugal visit is when an inmate is actually given a little privacy during a scheduled visit to "reacquaint" themselves with a spouse or long-term partner. The theory is that permitting such a visit preserves family bonds and increases the chances of success for a prisoner's eventual return to life outside prison. Perhaps more immediately clear: the incentive of conjugal visits means that inmates are strongly motivated to comply with the various day-to-day rules and regulations of the prison. As a result, inmates consciously avoid any infringement which might disqualify them from having a conjugal visit. And no prisoner wants to miss out on a chance to get a little lovin' from the outside.

Conjugal visits may be inside the prison, or in a specially designated trailer. Sheets, pillows and towels may be supplied, as well as tissues, lube, and condoms, for you-know-what.

As a matter of procedure, both visitor and inmate are searched before and after the visit, to ensure that the visitor has not attempted to smuggle any items in or out of the facility.

She wasn't packing anything when she came to the prison, but after her visit, she was certainly carrying something out.
