Gang members from the Colombian town of Pereira have been hit where it hurts when their wives and girlfriends went on strike.
They called for the sex ban in an effort to persuade their menfolk to give up the gun.
After meeting with the mayor’s office to discuss a disarmament programme, a group of women decided to deny their partners their conjugal rights.
They even recorded a song for local radio to urge others to follow their example.
"We met with the wives and girlfriends of gang members and they were worried some were not handing over their guns and that is where they came up with the idea of a vigil or a sex strike," mayor’s office representative Julio Cesar Gomez said.
"The message they are giving them is disarm or if not then they will decide how, when, where and at what time."
