Banning condoms leads to increasing the number of HIV infected people among prisoners. HIV is not detected immediately, while it has not been diagnosed yet. There were cases of mass syphilis infection in the colonies. I talked with a guy. At the age of 18 he he was convicted for robbery. He never had a woman. The first sexual experience he got with the «offended» and it proved unsuccessful. The partner was sick, but no one knew about it. There was a massive syphilis infection — more than 15 people at once. There was no medical sanitary unit (prison hospital), so they were assigned a separate cell in the camera for the punished, where they were treated and kept. This is to the question that people know who they are sleeping with. I think that only prevention can protect people from spreading of sexually transmitted diseases. Sexual relations in prison are an administrative offense. But it's foolish to think that people, who are sitting for 10-15 years in a jail, will completely refuse from close relations. Moreover, most of the prisoners are young men. Unfortunately, the Russian correctional system is not ready for this yet. And it won't be ready in the nearest future. But if we do not start working at this today — it will not be ready even in 30 years. The sex ban generates not only the spread of HIV, but also psychological, psychological deviations of people who are almost every day subjected to sexual violence. In fact, there is a concealment of the crime. The administration never makes public the facts of rape: it spoils reporting. The «offended» don't understand that they are victims in this case and they must have the right to choose. And the official ban on sexual relations again deprives them of the right to vote. The result of this silence is new incidents of violence.
In general, due to the position of the administration, they do not have a distribution between the prisoners: the «offended» have always been, are and will be. When the administration has to influence a man, then they arrange repressive situations. If they want to take advantage of someone (substitute), then it will happen. And they perfectly know that it can happen anywhere and anytime.
If a person goes on a date with an inmate, they leave outside co-called «na glaza» (a watchman, to observe the warders approaching) to protect themselves. If that watchman wasn't attentive and didn't watch the guard — so, they are caught. Not the «offended», but the «muzhik» provoked the situation is repressed (punished) more. The strongest punishment for that — 15 days in a penalty cell.
It can affect the grant of parole. Operatives decide — go the parole or not. If a prisoner was noticed in something forbidden, then as before: corruption, extortion. If you want to release on the parole — pay.
