Women prisoners are sought after mates

Filed under: General by Orangemaster @ 4:04 pm

BONJO, a Dutch partnership organisation that defends prisoners’ rights runs a dating site for male and female prisoners. They started about half a year ago with the women by placing contact adverts and apparently it’s a hit: 1,300 adverts for just 450 female prisoners. They say the foreign female inmates are popular with Dutch men, which seems to paint quite a different picture that on the outside.

A dating service for prisoners is not odd, but then there’s a Dutch-language one for vegetarians.
