Sex Toys Will Keep Prisoners from Turning Gay. Really?

A senator in Zimbabwe is lobbying for prisons in the country to provide sex toys and a private place to use them. Yay! She says that sex is a biological need that must be met. 'We can’t say we don’t have money to feed and clothe prisoners because people can stay without food, but they want their sexual desires to be satisfied whether you like it or not.' says senator Sithembile Mlotshwa. Yay! I completely agree. I'm not sure providing sex toys is the answer but I agree with the reasoning for it. At least in part.

After making that statement, Senator Mlotshwa goes on to say that providing sex toys will keep prisoners from becoming gay and participating in gay sex. She thinks that homosexual activity is immoral and she want to stop it from happening in prisons.

I think there is actually an easier and more cost effective way to keep prisoners from participating in gay sex. Stop putting people in jail just because they are gay. They do that in Zimbabwe. That might be why they have so much gay sex in their prisons. Stands to reason doesn't it?

They could actually kill two birds with one stone. They could reduce the amount of gay sex in the prisons and cut costs to their prison system by not putting people in jail just for kissing their lover in public. I'm all for sex toys, Senator, but I do think this is a better solution for everyone involved.
