www.inmatesforyou.com.  The service even seems to be free.

Thanks to Eric Crampton for the pointer.

There is also “www.meet-an-inmate.com”, which has been “Serving Inmates Since 1998.”

I’m happily married so this is not for me, but for those of you dating, consider George Costanza’s recommendation: there is no danger of the pop-in and conjugal visit sex is 10 times better than make-up sex.

The link seems to be dead.

Thanks go to Marginal Revolution and PC World for mentioning my website. I began the website with the desite to learn how to develop and maintain a web accessable database using .ASP webpages. Took me about 6 months of trial and error and reading FREE internet tutorials on the subject of databases and .ASP pages. So to me it is quite an accomplishment to do something like that from scrath. So whether people are slamming my site or patting me on the back, either way people are talking about my website and that is always a good thing. Take care!

You said penal.

Well the site has not been unpdated in the last year as I do not charge for any of my services to those who view the site. I charge the inmates for the addition of their profile, but As I said I have not added profiles in almost a year. I have a full time job that has taken me to other states and to other countries recently and has not left me with much time for updating the website. My full time job is Mechanical Engineering for Building Automation Controls and Energy Management Systems.

Yes the service has been and still is used for various reasons, some thoughtful and caring and others that may be considered deviant. But just as the users of the website vary so do the inmates. Some are guilty, but don’t deserve the long sentences being served due to not being bale to afford legal representation and others need to be there for a LONG time.

Either way the site is worth a look, laugh or whatever.
