Once again sex is used as a tool for change in yet another African country...the sex strike is becoming quite popular round these sides
Activist women in Togo have today begun a sex strike in a bid to use their sexual power to unseat the president.
Female members of the civil rights group Let's Save Togo are withholding sex from their husbands and partners for a week.
Their aim is to cause the resignation of the President Faure Gnassingbe.The country has been ruled by the same family for decades. President Faure Gnassingbe came to power in 2005, following the death of his father, Eyadema Gnassingbe, who ruled the West African country for 38 years. The campaign group believe they need the help of the men in the country to force President Gnassingbe to resign.[Dailymail]
