Scent of a woman (part 5 of 6)


Ex-hijacker describes first conjugal visit from Tracey Eaton on Vimeo.

"Perversions and gang rapes" aren't a part of Cuban prison life, ex-hijacker William Potts said.
But conjugal visits are important and help keep families together even when one family member is behind bars, he said.
Prisoners are allowed as many as two conjugal visits per week. Potts said there was a "hotel" on prison grounds where these visits took place.
He said by the time he earned the right a conjugal visit, he hadn't been with a woman for five years.
Just as he was about to have his first conjugal visit, he said he began sweating, felt nauseous and experienced "hot and cold flashes."
"Perfume mixed with the essence of woman," he said, was overwhelming and he had to excuse himself to go to a bathroom and throw up.
After that, he said:
We got it together. Everything went all right.
Potts spent 13 1/2 years in a Cuban prison. He said:
They don't have much else, but they have conjugal visits. God bless 'em for that.

Hold on, so you don't have to be married to the woman. Can someone then have a different woman come in the next week?

That's right. You don't have to be married. I wonder if that stretches the definition of conjugal. William didn't say whether inmates can have a different woman visit every week.
