|Female Inmates Seeking Pen Pals|
We interrupt this browsing session for an important announcement:
Are you sure you want to be here?
All NEW pen pal ads since January 1, 2014, have been posted on Babes Behind Bars due to Gabby's retirement!
...now back to the same ol' same ol':
Women in prison are looking for someone on the outside with whom to write through the US Mail to help make their time while incarcerated go by quicker. They typically seek someone to be a friend with compassion and understanding, open-minded, open hearted, with a sense of humor and a big shoulder. Writing allows them to share their dreams, their fantasies, their hopes for a better future upon their release. They need pen pals to keep their sanity and to remind them that there is a world outside those walls that they want to be a part of.
Take some time and read some of the ads on here! Then decide whether you can be someone to brighten the day of a female prisoner who has no one to talk to except another female prisoner like herself.
Jailhouse-Babes.com, formerly known as cowtowninfo.com, began as Gabby's Lounge BBS in 1989 and has evolved into a web site specializing in helping incarcerated women find friends as pen pals to help them through their loneliness.
Each inmate has her own personal web page that may include as many photos and as much text as she wants. There is a one time minimal cost for her to place an ad, but there is no cost associated with you retrieving her mailing address. So if you're looking for prison pen pals from among the inmates on the web, click on the links below to one of the various index pages to search for your next female inmate friend.
Unlike the vast majority of prisoner pen pal websites, this web site only offers ads to female inmates.
In the early days of Gabby's Lounge, I began receiving a lot of personals ads from inmates, which prompted the categorization of "Jailbabes" to separate them from other personals ads. The name stuck, and at one point someone else even registered that domain name. It didn't last long because they tried to charge $7.00 (or so) for each inmate's mailing address that you can get here for free.
You'll find personals ads from women in prison, with and without photos, listed by state or in order of receipt. Also, I have set up a Yahoo! Group for discussion about your experiences writing to female inmates. So when you search prisoner pen pal websites for females, this is the site to visit first!

for an inmate within Jailhouse-Babes.com!
You may search by name, city, state, or anything that comes to mind that might help you find a particular person. Looking for a blonde in Virginia? Try it!
If you would like to submit an ad for an inmate friend of yours, you may download the front and back of the ad form that is used to place ads here. Please try to print them on one sheet of paper by re-feeding the forms into your printer. There are also many other web sites that provide this service. In particular, please consider Paper Dolls, which provides space for females and Iron Men for males.
Sometimes women do dumb things and get caught, ending up in prison
as a last resort.
Sometimes they're guilty as hell and have committed major crimes! But sometimes, although guilty, the crimes aren't violent. Crimes such as using drugs, writing bad checks and forgery, while punishment is in order, don't make these women especially bad people.
Being in prison can be very lonely for them, and usually they've lost all connection with former friends, sometimes even their families disown them!
So they seek pen pals. Someone they can write to and share their thoughts and dreams. Someone who will write back and be sincere, compassionate, caring. They don't have access to modern conveniences like the Internet, and many can't even get pens and paper to write on! Sometimes she'll have to tear a note pad page in half so she can write to two people. Stamps are scarce, too, and indigent women need help with things such as stamps along with their normal hygiene products. An inmate in Missouri earns all of $8.50 per month to buy toiletries or other necessities!
So if you're someone willing to take on a new friend, someone who will write frequently and help, through your words, less fortunate ladies get through some very, very difficult times, browse the list of female inmates seeking friendships through the good ol' United States Post Office's mail system! Read the inmate's intimate personals ad. Even join the Jailhouse-Babes Yahoo! Group and discuss your experiences with others who write to inmates.
You can bring more happiness than you might realize just by sharing your thoughts and concerns with one of these ladies who is less fortunate than you. Make a note of their birth date and send them a birthday card, it would mean SO much to her!

you like your name added to the mailing list that gets sent out to anyone who asks for
After reading through the above lonely pleas for companionship, wouldn't you like it if these ladies spent their free time thinking about you while writing you personal, sensual secrets and fantasies? Or to discuss world events, the state of the economy or life itself from her perspective?
I receive requests from ladies and men in prison for the names of men and women who wish to be pen pals. Prison is a very lonely place and they would like to communicate with folks in the outside world. Most ask for pen pals from all over the USA, some want to write to men in other countries. Many would like to write to members of the military deployed overseas. Some request men by age groups, most don't care about age or race or gender, they just want to write to someone who isn't locked up. NONE can write to other inmates, however.
I love a good massage and have put up this page of my experiences and recommendations.

God Bless this wonderful, caring man.
