The search for the perfect partner is as old as time itself. Tall, brunette, smart, kinky, successful, ambitious, the wish-list is endless. To this end, there has been no dearth of entrepreneurs trying to cash in love and matrimony. Witness the profusion of websites such as eHarmony, Lavalife and dare we say, Myspace.
It takes an entrepreneur of a whole different mindset, however, to come up with the following outrageous, nay, mind-blowing concept. Conjugal Harmony is the brainchild of some clever Californians (who else?) and seeks to join discerning men and hardened female felons in holy union. Their tag-line? The nagging stops when the bars slam shut. Evocative stuff.
From the website:
What’s so great about getting married to someone in prison?
If you’re anything like us, you’re controlling. With Conjugal Harmony, we take out the guess work. You don’t have to hire a private detective to know where your spouse is, who they’re hanging out with, or ever wonder if you’re being cheated on. By marrying a convict inside the prison system you can rest easy knowing that the state is looking out for you, and that you will be free of the nagging, shopping trips and extra-marital oversight so stifling to your relationship.
The premise is that there is no shortage of beautiful and willing women incarcerated for serious offenses (read long prison sentences if not life). At present, only six states allow prisoners to have conjugal visits and allow marriages to take place with inmates. It is within these six states that Conjugal Harmony operates. We’re not quite sure about the details and the website has a scant FAQ section. We assume more information is forthcoming once you sign up.
As of now, no word on whether foreigners can marry inmates and then obtain a green card. Certainly that would bring in the immigrant hordes, in turn making prison-women as sought after as the haloed H1-B visa. Also, we’re not sure if prison sex is in fact 13.2 times kinkier than sex in public but we’d like to find out.
We’ve included pictures of some of the inmates at right. They seem like a pleasant bunch. Do let us know if you take the plunge, we’ll be sure something appropriate as a wedding gift, say, an iron-file. If you sign up (no word on pricing yet), please let us know, we’d love to do an expose on prison-love.
