Prisoner sex debate

Should prisoners have the right to have sex with their partners whilst serving time in jail? The Howard League for Penal Reform says it will spend two years looking at all elements of the issue, from consensual to coercive sex in jails.
But is it a good idea to introduce conjugal visits into our prison system? We'll be talking to John Hirst, a former prisoner who supports prisoners' rights to have sex; Toni Callan, whose partner is currently serving time in prison and who says she would also support it; and former Police Detective and Criminologist Mark Williams Thomas who disagrees, saying prison should mean punishment and conjugal visits could lead to pregnancies and more single parent families.
