The South African Prisoners Organisation of Human Rights (SAPOHR) says giving inmates conjugal rights can help reduce the risks of physical and psychological violence among them.

SAPHOR was responding to issues related to prison safety in the light of recent reports which say a warder allegedly facilitated a sexual encounter between an inmate and her partner and another inmate allegedly run drug cartels from prison.

SAPHOR’s Golden Miles Bhudu, points out that, "You must also be reminded that there are correctional officers who take advantage of female offenders and have sex with them, which is unconstitutional and wrong and get away with it."
