Should prisoners in NZ be given 'Sex Dolls'?

nsfw 10/05/2017

An English prisoner, Jack Swarez, 48, is campaigning for sex dolls to be offered to inmates for good behaviour.

This is an interesting follow up story to the Kiwi guys who were fighting for prisoners’ rights to be sperm donors.

Is it a human right to get your end a way?

Benny Boy coming in hot with the big questions.

Kara added: “Well, you can do it yourself, if you’re a dude or a lady. You’ve got hands.”

Swarez however, doesn't think hands will suffice. He's arguing that sex dolls wouldn’t cost the government a thing, as prisoners would be willing to pay for the dolls out of their own pocket. And that this could potentially revolutionise inmates behaviour.

Swarez explained on prison website Inside Time: "The trouble is, our prisons are full of young men filled with testosterone who would give their right arm for a bit of passion. The frustration of this situation inevitably makes these young men restless and wanting to cause mischief.

“I bet they give their right arm for a bit of passion nightly…” Benny Boy weighs in on the one-liners.

Swarez, who was jailed for 17 years in 2012 for drug dealing, says his grand idea came from watching a documentary that showed:


Grown men who live with rubber, blow-up dolls. I noticed that all of these men looked very happy and stress-free.

Swarez also said: "Inmates could spend their bang-up time together with their rubberised partner. They could enjoy date nights, watch the soaps together, listen to music - everything that you would normally do with your partner."

Wow. That’s some real Lars and the Real Girl meets Prison Break shit.

George Breakfast was left with a lot of questions after hearing about this story.

Kara asked: "Do they have a sex doll shop? Like you know you can take books out of the library, they go ‘today I’m going to take Janice… or I’m gonna take Paula’”

“Who cleans them? Is that very hygienic? Would they have to wear a condom to prevent not catching an STD?”

Clint added: “Would it reduce prisoner intercourse?”

Swarez’s campaign has gone viral across international media, and now people are genuinely questioning whether NZ prisoners need sex dolls.

So, George Breakfast decided to investigate. We called a former inmate, let’s call him ‘Bob,’ and his verdict is a big NO.

Bob raised hygiene as a primary concern, but also claimed magazines ought to do the job.   

It sounds a bit disgusting, just hygienically. I reckon they can get away with just the magazine and um… yeah, just a bit more d low.

Clint asked: “Are those things like pure, gold currency when you’re in prison?”

“Oh for sure, you can rip a page out and sell it for 60 bucks.”

60 bucks for a porno page!? Imagine the premiums on a sex doll.
