    BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) - They are calling it the "crossed legs" strike.

    Fretting over crime and violence, girlfriends and wives of gang members in the Colombian city of Pereira have called a ban on sex to persuade their menfolk to give up the gun.

    Crime and violence have dropped in Colombia since 2002 when President Alvaro Uribe was first elected promising to crackdown on left-wing rebels fighting a four-decade insurgency and the illegal militia groups who formed to counter them.

    I have a feeling some of those guys will be handing in their weapons soon!
