Sheila Isenberg’s book entitled Women Who Love Men Who Kill is an effort to help us understand why so many women are attracted to prison inmates… specifically murderers.
Black Women Find Power in Love Behind Bars
Sheila Isenberg interviewed countless prison wives, fiances and girlfriends. All of these women had fallen deep in love with notorious inmates. She features them all in her book.
According to Isenberg, black women find power and security in prison relationships for the following reasons:
Women who date prison inmates feel secure in the knowledge that the inmate can’t hurt or harm them in any physical way
Women initiate an affair or carry on the relationship because they can manipulate things from the outside, while the men are locked up inside
They decide how far they want to go in the prison relationship since the men are inside and cannot get out just yet
These women can choose to pick up the tab for prison phone calls or not

How are black women who love prisoners finding these men who are notorious criminals? According to Isenberg, the internet is largely the answer.
Prison inmates and women everywhere get in touch via prison penpal dating websites such as: PrisonPenPals.com, MeetAnInmate.com, prisonpenpals.net and writeaprisoner.com. They also find prisoners to date in magazine ads and on Craigslist.
