COMMENTARY: I need a sugar daddy, a daddy strong enough to take me in hand and spoil me rotten; to
claim and own me in every way possible.  I will spoil you rotten in return beyond anything in your wildest
dreams.  I'm naturally submissive and love to please.  There's nothing, absoutely nothing, I won't do to please that special guy who claims me.  I
am very malleable and easily trained to your specific tastes and likes.  I am extremely loyal, obedient and honest.  I will be your servant, slave,
lover, friend or anything else you want and need.  Nothing is too taboo or off limits...nothing!  If you want it, take it, or command it.  I am into
BD/SM, being used, humiliated, debased and degraded.  I love to serve and being handled roughly.  Love forced feminization, demasculation
and crossdressing.  Nothing is too kinky or perverted.  The freakier, the better.  I also like fantasy and role play.  I also cook, clean, keep house,
perform all domestic duties and follow you around like a pet.  Just snap your fingers for anything you need...anything!  I really, really need by
own sugar daddy to love, adore and serve.  I'm uinque and very serious.  I get out in three years and will be free to go anywhere and do
anything.  I'm wide open for ideas, relocation, adventure and service.  Come on, take a chance on me.  You will not regret it.  Please be my sugar
daddy.

COMMENTARY:  I am open to writing all gay men anywhere who are willing to be open and honest.  
Understand what you're getting into when writing to me.  I can be a big flirt when I become comfortable with the person I'm writing.  If the state of
Texas has its way, I won't see parole until 2033.  I am fighting my case in the courts, but nothing is a sure thing.  So keep that in mind.  I don't
want any hurt feelings and that includes mine.  So I ask that we keep the games down to a low roar.  I'm easy going and open to almost
anything.  You'll have to write to me to see just what I am or not into.  I'll let your set the rules and any boundaries you feel you need to put in
place.  I just ask you to be honest and upfront with your intentions.  I'll respond to any and all who write, so I look forward to hearing from you.
Sorry, I can't respond to you via the jpay.com system.  Make sure your put your return address in your letter.

COMMENTARY:  I'm looking for a meaningful friendship with someone sincere and who likes to write to
someone that would like to have some company as much as I do.  Despite being a naturally happy and
easy-going guy, it gets pretty lonely in this place.  I need a good [and kind of bad] guy to share with and shoot the shit with.  If something more
than friendship develops...GREAT.... let the pieces fall where they may.  I need the ying to my yang.  The socket for my plug, if you will. HA!  
Anyway, I have no kids and I am divorced.  I love barbeques at the lake, football, cold Coronas and submissive men.  I love to have fun and I love
the work I do when I am on the outside as a professional tattoo artist.  Some other things I like are quiet evenings with my partner such as
watching movies and finding ways to make him smile.  Be it that late-nite butterfly kiss or a midday spanking, I'm down with it.  This has to be
short, but that is just fine because we can get into all the details in our private letters.

COMMENTARY:  I am free to a good home so how can you resist?  Who wants to be alone -- whether behind
bars or out there where you are?  Where are you?  Sure i have a little time to do but that doesn't mean I want
to be alone.  I'd love to be with you.  For a long time I've kept myself a prisoner of my true self and that's an even worse prison than this real one
I am in.  Society is changing and seems no longer as shallow and anti-gay, so I'm breaking those mental chains and letting my true self shine.  
Wouldn't you like to be the once to embrace me into this brave new world?  In prison relationships abound, but I'm not into being confined to just
the world.  I want to be in your life.  I want to be free to see the world -- our world -- through your eyes.  Let my loyalty be revealed in my words
and actions and let my gregarious nature make you smile. Let anticipation rise in you each day as you wonder what will be in the mail box.  Just
so you know, I give "good pen."  Do you?

COMMENTARY:  Before I begin let me start by thank you for checking out my profile.  I will try to be brief in
telling you a little bit about myself.  I am currently serving a 30-year sentence, however I am up for parole in
2018.  During my sting here in prison I've taken the time to put the important things in my life into perspective.  I'm no saint by any means, but I'm
one who recognizes my flaws and tries to men what needs to be mended.  There's no doubt that I've changed for the better.  In my spare time I
love to read, write, listen to the radio and work out.  I don't allow myself to be mentally trapped in prison like so many others in prison.  Out in the
world I like hanging with friends, playing sports, fishing, camping, barbecues, etc. Having a good time and meeting different people is what it is all
about for me.  I'm looking for a friend who is willing to help keep me strong and focused.  If love sprouts from this friendship then I surely won't
shy away from it.  I hope I caught your eye and you will write to me.

you consider being my pen friend there are some things I can promise to be for you.  Someone you can come to for comfort, eyes you can look
into and trust, a heart that understands and doesn't judge.  I offer a supporting shoulder for you to lean on.  My door is always open. If this
sounds like something you'd be interested in, then you should write to me.  My only intention was and is to gain a friend.  Write to me and you'll

me the same courtesy.  Prison life is kind of hard on me because I feel like I have no one to talk to.  My mother passed away a couple of years

and maybe more if things work out.  Oh, but the way, i am a top for all of you that want to know.  At first I was just curious, but now I want to be
happy.  This is my life and you only live once, right!  So if you are interested please write to me and be sure to give me your mailing address.  
That is especially important if you choose to write to me using jpay.com.  Not including your snail mail mailing address in the body of your

so ready to meet a new friend and have some good conversation.  The conversations in prison can be very boring.  I want to meet someone
where we can both be real, share some laughs, some goals and just what's going on in our lives on a daily basis.  I have an associate degree
and enjoy learning new things.  I consider myself a guy with an open mind.  I love to have fun.  I play basketball and work out hard to keep my
body in shape.  I have to be ready for work when I am released.  I will see the parole board in 2016.  I know I've made some mistakes in my life,
but if you would like to meet a man who has grown up and matured and a top who knows what he wants, then send me a letter by U.S. mail or
electronically through jpay.com and introduce yourself.  Remember, if you use the electronic method make sure you include your U.S. mail reply

real me is down to Earth, loyal, honest, caring and loving.  I don't play games with people's hearts and heads, so i expect the same.  I am really
open to a lot in life and I am not afraid to try new things.  I am like a book full of pages and chapters unread.  Maybe you can hold my hand and
join me on a journey in life.  I am really a sucker for a good heart.  Your personality and looks are not a concern for me.  I do have a kind heart
and am not judgmental of others.  I have changed for the good over the years and I do wear my heart of my shoulders.  I guess you could say

COMMENTARY:  I am a handsome, dominant top who loves to be submissive when asked.  I am looking for
someone with whom to explore my fantasies.  I am from Austin, TX and am very open-minded.  I need a
friend [or perhaps more] to help me occupy the abundance of free time I have in prison.  I am interested in
good communication be it dominant or submissive.  I would like to meet a "stable individual" who is not afraid to take a chance in getting to know
me.  I am healthy and in great physical shape.  I am also honest and loyal.  I love to draw and will reward anyone who write to me with great cards
and drawings of my own design.  I am not seeking anyone who is interested in playing games.  I would like to start a friendship that has the
potential to become something more.  I am totally aware that friendship always has to be a two-way street.  I love to talk about my sexual
fantasies and, most of all, I like writing long and entertaining letters.  I promise a prompt response to all those who write to me. I just might be that
special person you have been looking for your whole life.  I have a very, very long sentence and once I meet "THE ONE," I will be there for the
long run.  I place no restrictions and will discover new boundaries with you.  Please send me a letter and get ready to embark on a journey you'll
never forget.  If you use jpay.com to send me email, please make sure you put your return snail-mail address in the body of your email to me. If
you don't do that, I won't be able to write back to you.

COMMENTARY:  Hi guys!  I am a gay, single black male who is looking for a special friendship.  I have never
been on any kind of pen pal web site and this is new to me, so please bare with my nervousness.  I feel
like I'm lost deep inside this prison system and there is no one who knows I am here.  Perhaps that is just
loneliness looking for companionship for more than two decades.  I am grateful for my education and my
sanity, and also my love for music.  Of the three, music has helped me a great deal, but I still long for an enjoyable conversation and perhaps a
special connection with someone.  Perhaps a soul mate in the near future.  I do come with past mistakes, but I do not dwell on them and I hope
that you don't either.  I was very young and angry, but now I am older and more appreciative of everything and everyone.  I have zero anger in
my heart.  I am willing to share my deepest secrets with the right person who is without judgment.  Are you out there?  I am just 49 cents away.  I
am a topper look for a fem.

COMMENTARY:  Hi LGBT friends!  I am a gay top male looking for that significant other.  My name is Bobby
and I'm from the south Houston-Galveston area.  I am very liberal in a very conservative prison system.  I
spend my time inside these walls advocating for equal rights and litigating my post-conviction appeals.  I love my health and my body so I
exercise to keep it all in shape.  I am well-equiped and, in realtors words, I "have alot."  I have a wonderful sense of humor and can make the
worst of times seem easy.  I am also a great listener and I know how to hold secrets.  My goals are to give my time back on appeal and be given
a fair trial so I can get back to my life in civil society.  I miss my family and the outdoors.  I love boating on the ocean and spending time with my
lover.  I am very well read and my choice of books are romance and federal and state law books.  I love philosophy and my favorite authors are
Ayn Rand and Leo Tolstoy.  I enjoy light rock, contemporary jazz, R&B and pop rock.  I am very family oriented.  I am true to myself and am very
real with those who are my friends.  So I hope that very special person writes soon.  TCOY!!

complexion.  I currently have five years completed on a 10-year sentence and I am eligible for parole.  That
means that I could be released really soon.  What I am looking for first is true friendship with the opportunity of a long-term relationship with that
special guy.  A relationship not simply while I am in prison, but beyond these walls.  Someone that I can come home to and enjoy spending the
days and night with.  Is this person you?  If so, then please feel free to contact me at my mailing address above.  I'd love to hear from you.  But
one thing about me is this:  I don't play games and do not wish for games to be played on me.  If you decide to write to me, I promise to show you
the most utmost respect, a listening ear and a voice to speak when you need it most.  It's not what you can do for me, but what we can do for one
another.  I can't wait to hear from you and I look forward to communicating with you in the very near future.  I look forward to when our pens and

COMMENTARY:  I am wrongly convicted of aggravated assault because I was defending myself and a
friends from a Crip gang member who had just been released from prison and was intent on gay bashing
and robbery.  That gang member has since been indicted for capital murder for shooting a 16-year-old five
time and shooting his mother in the back during a home invasion robbery.  I was convicted based on fabricated evidence and perjured testimony
by the police to protect their informant.  My so-called "victim" was never called to testify at my illegal jury trial.  I can and will prove all the above
facts and be exonerated.  When that happens the state will owe me $80,000 per year for my 14 years behind bars.  I will gladly share that with
anyone willing to help me prove I was wrongly convicted.  I would also like to create a defense fund web site to raise funds to hire private
investigators for the wrongly convicted.  During my time in prison I have completed two vocational trades and every rehab program the DOC
offers.  I do not drink, smoke or use drugs.  I spend my time here lifting weights, playing handball and studying the law.  I look forward to having
you as my newest friend.

with a good career and out of poverty.  While going through a sexual identity crisis I was discharged from the U.S. Army in 1976 while serving in
South Korea.  I drank heavily after my release from the military.  I landed in jail numerous times finally ending up here in prison.  I have been in

relationship.  I look forward to hearing from you.

COMMENTARY:  I was born and raised in Oklahoma City and my ethic background is Cherokee Indian

emergency rooms and doctors offices.  I would like to go into real estate when I am released from prison.  I've lived in Oklahoma  and moved
around to surrounding states before settling in Texas.  This is my first time in prison and I've been locked up for 15 years.  I rarely get any mail.  
I'm loyal and honest with friends and I want someone who feels the same.  I'm looking for a special friendship.  I was accused of crimes that mirror
the Catholic sex scandal by those who were one step away from serious trouble.  I was their families' last hope.  When their troubles heated up,
they took the easiest way out.  Please don't believe all you read - a book has two sides.  My side has yet to be heard.  I am in the middle of a
legal appeal that I hope will clear my name.  Several of my accusers, now grown, and others that I worked with are also trying to get me
released.  I'm not a monster and I'll answer any questions that you may have.  Just give me a chance, OK?  With the majority of the prison
population being gangster, hate filled or homophobic; it's hard to find someone in here with whom to have a meaningful conversation.  I enjoy
excitement and laughing.  I have a sense of humor and love just to hang out with friends.  I work out to keep in shape and I've always been told
that I have a nice body.  I've always been extremely popular with friends.  I'm very open-minded, but I'm not into sex letters.  I'm looking for
friendships.  I have no family and no one to write.  It gets lonely in here.

a long road ahead of me without having anyone to write.  There is some light at the end of the road because
starting in 2015 I come up for a parole hearing every year.  I love to listen to classic country music and 80s-90s rap and rock.  Not being
accepted as gay is 10 times worse than it is out in the free world.  That makes having gay friend in prison a difficult proposition.  Having people to
write would not only open the opportunity for friendship, but also make life a lot less lonely.  I can't wait to hear from you guys.

been a ward of the state my whole life and I'm the youngest of 7 brothers.  I have no sisters.  I love drawing
portraits, but I am learning to draw other things as well.  I love playing the guitar, but I am no James Hatfield.  I am a gamer and love playing Call

camping, but fishing is my Number One.  I enjoy watching football -- Go Cowboys -- and working on motorcycles.  I am a lover of all types of good
music, but modern rock is my favorite...Killswitch Engage, Seven Dust, Creed, Bullet for my Valentine and Denon Hunter are my top favorite
bands.  One day it's my dream to visit Japan, Norway and Great Britain.  They all have very beautiful cultures and very strong and spirited
people.  I long for that special relationship with someone who is strong and independent and who doesn't let the ways of the world bring them
down.  New friends would also be nice.  I hope that person is you.  Write to me and let me get to know you.  I will be waiting.

COMMENTARY:  My friends and loved ones call me Jamie.  I have lived all over Texas, but call east Texas
home.  I would rather be outdoors doing pretty much anything than having to be indoors.  I like to play
sports or go out for a trail ride with family or friends.  I also like to go hunting, fishing or camping at the lake or river.  I like meeting new folks even
though I am a bit shy at first.  I tend to make friends pretty easily.  I'm looking to meet new people, build friendships and see what develops.  If
you are curious about how a twice divorced father of one came to this, then please write to me and find out.

COMMENTARY:  Hello everybody!  You can call me Khan or daddy for short :)  All kidding aside, I'm fairly
new to this whole gay scene.  I'm a very shy and traditionally reserved person.  I'm from a little country named
Laos, where sexuality is not openly expressed be it straight or gay.  Though I understand the value of a relationship and the fun of a good kinky
story, that's not what I am looking for.  I am a realist.  I have a life sentence and I live in Texas -- so let's face it -- we are not getting married; so
why venture down that path.  Sex stories are hot, but how many can we possibly share before growing bored of each other?  As a Texas inmate, I
have no source of income except for what kind-hearted people send me.  If I'm going to spend 49 cents on a letter, I would like it to have some
substance.  I'm aptly surrounded by pretty boys, but it seems these boys have traded their looks for brains :))  Surely there are a few guys out
there who value a good conversation, an exchange of ideas, a discussion that goes beyond a fat butt or large package.  Please excuse my
brashness, but I'm tired of being defined by my sexuality.  There is more to my life than my gayness.  I'm looking for that open-minded person
who can just talk to me about life.  We can talk about anything as long as we talk.  I am a very honest person and I expect the same in return.  
Just be you and I will completely accept you as you are, as I hope you do for me.  Simply put guys, I'm in no position to be falling in love.  I'm not
looking for a date, I'm looking for a pen pal.  So please, share your accomplishments, your fears, your life with me.  Let me be your own personal
diary.  For me, the best orgasms come from a deep and stimulating conversation.  Is there anyone out there who is willing to get me off :)))  I'll be
waiting.

COMMENTARY:  I am an intersex male.   I am the oldest of two
siblings and I was raised in east Texas until age 11 at which time I was placed into the custody of the
Texas Department of Human Resources and remained under their custody until I was 18. I have a big heart and love to show it.  I am open
minded, adventurous and sometimes spontaneous.  I don't like arguing or drama and I am laid back.  Being born with a intersex condition [xxy
male], I have both feminine and masculine qualities [which constitutes completeness] and makes me unique and a great lover because I can
relate to both sexes.  I am in solitary confinement [one man cell] and I've been in confinement for five years.  I have many lonely days spent
staring at four concrete walls and no windows.  I'd much rather spend this time building relationships that will last a lifetime.  I am a pleaser and
love to make people smile.  If you have common interest or I intrigue you, you can contact me at the above address or by using jpay.com and
send me an email.  Remember, if you use jpay you will need to include your return U.S. postal address in the body of your email.  Much love to all.

people have to be home. Not just anyone...FRIENDS.  The friends who live through the changes with us, the
ones who grow with us...they are our home.  I am inherently an adventurer and a conquerer.  There is no greater thrill for me than the conquest
won as well as the thrill of the chase.  I have no secrets, so please feel free to ask me anything because I will openly discuss my life.  I've
experienced much in life, both good and bad and I feel I have learned a thing or two.  I have a very broad range of interest in life.  I'm very
well-read, moderately educated and excited to be alive.  I am a very open-minded individual and am willing to try and learn new things.  I ask only
two things of you:  serious people interested in moving forward and not playing games and don't let my being in prison determine for you my
worth as a person.  If the power of my words have moved you, then please write to me and let's see where the next step takes us.

This incarceration will provide us the time to get to know one another.  I am a solid 180 pounds and am very family oriented.  I am 110% the
atypical country boy.  So much so as a kid that I rode bulls.  I love fishing, camping, hiking, etc.  I also do enjoy some good ole cuddle time with
my special person.  Since the photograph shown here, I've gotten lots of tattoos on arms and back.  I could and would consider relocating for the
right person.  So if you wish to catch a country bad boy gone right then drop me a line and let's get to know one another.

spontaneously and I work out periodically.  I am on this site because I'm in a situation that has helped me realize the importance of a true friend;
someone who can be honest and loyal, not just when it is convenient.  A friend who can be there during the worst and best of times.  I'm
interested in having people in my life who choose to see me as a friend, or more, and help me stay focused and prosper, while at the same time
allowing me the privilege to be a friend.  A person who helps encourage and enhance quality in your life.  If you believe you can be someone's
true friend in many ways then you are the kind of friend I need.  I believe that faith is the essence of all things and that a honest and true fair
exchange is not a robbery.  I'm up for whatever and with whomever finds interest in me.  I hope you'll take the time to give me a chance to be a
friend or more to you. Until then, please always smile.

COMMENTARY:  Greetings!  First and foremost I'd like to thank you for taking your time to view my listing.  I
hope you and your loved ones are in the best of health and having great times.  I am in search of a friend with
whom I can share conversations based on my lifestyle preferences.  When I was younger and immature, I was hanging around bad people with
negative lifestyles and indulged myself in criminal activity.  I ended up in this prison system at the age of 18 and since then my life has been on a
roller coaster ride.  Through the years I've taken time to really get to know myself and find my purpose in life.  I've been judged, mistreated and
kept in administrative segregation confinement because of my gay lifestyle.  It's been hard and stressful being in a cell 24 hours a day.  That is
especially so when all your friends and your family turn their backs on you.  However, I manage to get by regardless of who accepts me for who I
am.  I'll be okay.  I have a real big and strong heart and am very passionate and considerate.  I am also open minded, very understanding and a
great listener who is full of compassion.  I spend my time mostly educating myself, drawing and working out to release the stress.  I anticipate
being paroled on 5-2-18.  I hope that you can be that loyal and trusting friend because we all need someone with whom we can confide.
