Women end sex strike in remote Colombian town

BOGOTA, Colombia — The women of the Colombian town of Barbacoas have declared their sex strike over.

It is not clear how many women took part, and compliance is impossible to prove. But the women of the remote southwestern town say their demand for a road was met.

They announced June 22 that they would deny their partners sex until authorities began paving a 35-mile (57-kilometer) road linking the town of 35,000 people with the provincial capital of Pasto.

Army engineers began work Tuesday. The paved road will cut travel time by at least six hours.

Barbacoas Mayor Jose Arnulfo Preciado tells The Associated Press he'll happily submit to a polygraph to prove the protest was honored. He says his wife slept in a separate room during the strike.

We need this to happen in D.C. but would have to include mistresses and "partners".
