Do South Carolina prisoners get conjugal visits?
No. Currently, only four states allow inmates to receive conjugal visits: they are California, Connecticut, New York, and Washington.
In Lyons v. Gilligan, 382 F. Supp. 198 the Court held that prisoners have no federal constitutional right to conjugal visits with their spouses during sentences. Federal Prison doesn’t allow conjugal visits either.
Should inmates be allowed conjugal visits?
