Sex Strike! Madrid's Escorts Launch Coordinated Attack Against Banks, Withhold Sex Services From Desperate Bankers

In America, women are planning an April 28th sex strike to send a message to the men trimming away their reproductive rights. Now, it seems, another sex strike is being utilized as a form of activism, this time against the banks. According to RT News, high-class escorts in Madrid, Spain are protesting the banking sector by refusing to sell bankers their highly sought-after commodity: Sex. RT reports:

The largest trade association for luxury escorts in the Spanish capital has gone on a general and indefinite strike on sexual services for bankers until they go back to providing credits to Spanish families, small- and medium-size enterprises and companies 

It all started with one of the ladies who forced one of her clients to grant a line credit and a loan simply by halting her sexual services until he “fulfills his responsibility to society.”

The trade association's spokeswoman praised their success by stressing the government and the Bank of Spain have previously failed to adjust the credit flow.

"We are the only ones with a real ability to pressure the sector," she stated. “We have been on strike for three days now and we don't think they can withstand much more.

The woman quoted above says bankers are desperate for sex services, and have become so pitiful they are unsuccessfully pretending to have other careers, and have even asked the government for help.

The Minister of Economy and Competitiveness Luis de Guindos reportedly told the Mexican website, which broke the story, that the escort industry's lack of regulations makes government intervention difficult.

"In fact, there has not even been a formal communication of the strike — the escorts are making use of their right of admission or denying entry to…well, you know. So no one can negotiate," he told

No one an say for sure whether sex strikes will catch on as an activist trend, but what these stories make clear is that sex is a valuable tool, and refusing it sends a very strong, direct message.
