Men are happy this strike is over

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) - October 13, 2011

The women in the town called a sex strike on June 22nd. They said they would deny their partners sex until authorities began paving a 35-mile road linking the town of 35,000 people with the provincial capital.

Finally, army engineers have begun work on the road. It'll cut travel time by at least six hours.

And that's a good thing -- since it appears that the couples who live there will have something else to do with all the time they save.

The local mayor insists that the protest was honored. He says his wife slept in a separate room -- and he's ready to take a lie detector test to prove it.
