In the 1990s I wrote a substantial, and well received, university essay on the topic of conjugal visits for prisoners. I began from a viewpoint of opposition to the idea. By the time I had finished, after searching through Auckland University and Auckland City libraries, and overseas resources, I arrived at the opposite conclusion.

It's sad to see we remain one of the most backward looking countries in regard to penal policy.
