Antiquity[ edit ] Although the ancient Greek theatre genre of the satyr play contained farcical sex, perhaps the best-known ancient comedy motivated by sexual gamesmanship is Aristophanes ' Lysistrata BC , in which the title character persuades her fellow women of Greece to protest the Peloponnesian War by withholding sex. Restoration comedy During the decade —82, sex comedy such as The Country Wife flourished as part of the revival of theatre in England resulting from the Restoration. Sex comedy embraces a realm of drama in which women can be contenders. The war is fought with glances and flirtations, wit and beauty, manipulation and desire. And in this battle, women often win—even if the victory is sometimes equivocal.
