Meditations on Lysias 1 and Athenian Adultery
http://scholar.lib.vt.edu/ejournals/ElAnt/V1N2/scodel.html
"Athenian literature shows a great deal of evidence for male anxiety about female sexual behavior. In particular, it is a standing assumption Old Comedy that there are moichoi everywhere. There are two assumptions here: that women are sexually insatiable and that citizen men are committing adultery to satisfy them."

The Plot of the Lysistrata and the Hostages of Line 244
http://scholar.lib.vt.edu/ejournals/ElAnt/V1N7/clay.html
'The question remains whether the change of venue and the removal of the young wives from their homes to the Akropolis is motivated or justified within the play. I believe it is and, moreover, that it offers a significant example of Lysistrata's savvy as a politician."
