"LYSISTRATA: Then I will tell you my plan: there’s no point in keeping it back. Women, if we want to force the men to make peace, we must renounce – / MYRRHINE: Renounce what? Go on. / LYSISTRATA: Then you’ll do it? / MYRRHINE: At the cost of our lives, if need be. / LYSISTRATA: Very well then. We must renounce – sex!" (Lysistrata, 121-124)
