COLOMBIAN WOMEN DECLARE NO ROADS NO SEX – Years ago I was sitting on a porch in the Deep South of Mississippi reminiscing on the trials and tribulations of life with a very elderly gentleman.
It was a strange and enlightening conversation on all manner of political issues in which he concluded;
“Son you have to understand the true nature of man and accept the fact that pussy rules the world – take away the delights of a woman and man will crumble to a pile of possum pooh within days.”
Now that might all seem a little outrageous or even an outlandish notion but today in Colombia women have proven this to be a fact after going on a Sex Strike.
Yes women in the small town of Barbacaos, in southwest Columbia, crossed their legs and told their men folk that they were not getting any sex until the towns roads are fixed.
Honestly it’s true and not only is it true it appears to have worked.
The cause of all their woes is that the town’s roads are in a deplorable state; so much so that it can take an ambulance 14 hours to reach the local hospital – ambulances and other vehicles simply get stuck in the massive pot holes and are unable to get out without being towed out.
This issue was first raised in 2011 after a mother and her baby died on the way to hospital. The unnamed women went into labour and an ambulance arrived several hours later. On the way to hospital complications further arose and as a result both mother and baby tragically died.
The women of the town put the blame directly on the state of the roads and demanded that local authorities took action and as long as they refused to fix the roads they would refuse to have sex with their partners.
According to the reports in 2011 all appeared well and the local authorities made efforts to fix the roads but now in 2013 the situation has worsened and once again the women are on sex strike; which has been dubbed the ‘cross legs movement’.
At the time of talking to the old gentleman all those years ago I thought his views were a little wacky to say the least but it appears that this movement gives credence to this theory for once again the local authorities have been rallied into action.
It has taken a little over 3 months for the women of Barbacaos in keeping their legs firmly crossed but it’s worked; the local authorities have now promised that the roads will be repaired and hopefully maintained to a reasonable stand.
I’m guessing that there will be an awful lot of men folk who are more than happy tonight.
