Pen Pal Ads

These ads are primarily from prisoners. Please take the time to select an ad (or more than one) and write to a prisoner. Make sure to use the address exactly as given here, including ID number, or mail will not get through.

This is intended as a page for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer prisoners, but not all people with ads here may identify as such, and no assumptions are to be made.

Although some people have apprehensions about doing so, I have written to prisoners for years and have never had any problems; rather, I have had very rewarding correspondences. -- Larry-bob.

I'm aware that my charges are pretty discouraging but I am a nice person. I'm respectuful, honest, nice, open hearted, confident, it's just that one can only take so much when you're being tortured due to your sexual preferences. It was to the point that I really believed me and my family's life was in danger. Anyways, if there's any way you can help me get a pal I'd surely be grateful.

I'm Charlie, I'm 45 strong, blue eyes, brown hair, looking for a special someone, or true sincere friend. I'm a very sexually stimilated guy, playful, but lonely. I'm insatiably bottom but go top and I'm going crazy in the lockup. I'm in the closet, and I don't act or look 45, I have 1 photo, if I can get it back I'll send it. I'm out of Houston TX, and would love a real caring person for friendship and more. I don't know what else, so ask.
