Colombian authorities have agreed to comply with demands for road improvements – after hundreds of women went on a sex strike. For 38 days, they denied their husbands sexual favors until a road that connects their small town to the rest of the country was paved. I guess they took a lesson from Aristophanes’ play Lysistrata which is a comic account of one woman’s extraordinary mission to end The Peloponnesian War by convincing the women of Greece to withhold sexual gratification from their husbands as a means of forcing the men to negotiate peace — a strategy that, consequently, inflames the battle between the sexes. The play is notable for being an early exposé of sexual politics in a male-dominated society. RT’s Lori Harfenist, also known as The Resident, asks people in New York how sex strikes could change the world.
