This quote is often attributed to John Lennon or the counterculture of the Hippies. It is actually from Aristophanes, 411 BCE. Aristophanes was a Greek comic playwright. The play is an antiwar comedy and social commentary about 5th century sexuality. The play, called "Lysistrata," features the title character rallying the females of Greece to withhold sex and all sexual privileges from husbands and lovers in order to "encourage" the menfolk to end the violent Pelponnesian War. "Lysistrata" means - Releaser of War.

See links below for more information on Aristophanes and his plays.
