In a time of global political combustion, with calls for democracy sparking mass demonstrations, self-immolations and civil wars, the women of the small African country of Togo might be the first to try to bring down a dictator by staging a sex strike.
The women, along with many men in Togo, have had enough of one-family rule. President Faure Gnassingbe took the presidency in 2005 (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/4242469.stm), shortly after the death of his father, who had held power for 38 years. The country has maintained a thin democratic façade, holding regular elections, but between father and son, the family has not relinquished power in four decades.

It wouldn't work on me here in America. The women who would do this to get Democrats in power are ones I wouldn't want to f**k in the first place.
