Kenyan Sex Strike for Peace

Posted in news and media with tags , , , , , on May 1, 2009 by absurddelight

Kenya is on the brink of civil war. Male politicians can’t stop bickering, threatening a fragile peace agreement.

So the women are taking matters into their own, er, hands.

“We have looked at all issues which can bring people to talk and we have seen that sex is the answer.”

That’s right! A sex strike is Kenya’s newest hope for peace.

The move will attempt to succeed where other peace-building measures have failed to end months of deadlock which threaten to plunge the country into another explosive crisis.

But that’s not all.

The group will also pay prostitutes not to work.

This seems dangerous for several reasons, but that kind of foresight is beyond the purview of a humble blog such as this one.
