Kenyan Man Sues Group For Telling His Wife: No Sex

A Kenyan man is suing activists who urged women to deny their partners sex for a week in protest against their country's political impasse.

In a move that echoed Aristophanes' Greek comedy Lysistrata, a group calling themselves the Women's Development Organization called for the boycott to get political leaders to end their rivalry and work, as the wife of Kenya's prime minister, Raila Odinga, described it, for "the common person."

James Kimondo told reporters outside a Nairobi courthouse that his wife's refusal to have sex with him caused him "anxiety and sleepless nights." (Who can I sue for a similar problem?) He continued, "I have been suffering mental anguish, stress, backaches, lack of concentration." He is seeking general damages against the Women's Development Organization.

Lysistrata, performed in Athens in 411 BC, was a play by Aristophanes about a woman's mission to end the Peloponnesian War by convincing the women of Greece that the only way their men would negotiate peace is if they stopped having sex with them.

I'm trying to imagine if such withholding would affect women as much. Is your sex drive high enough that you'd be able to be blackmailed into changing your ways in exchange for the return of sex from your significant other?

This is a great story and the historical reference is interseting. I love the man siting: "backaches". If I were in Kenya, I'd heed the call. as it is I wouldn't want to do this though, not longer than a month.
