I'm trying to remember a science fiction story about a peaceful future in which there are only women and a time-traveling man shows up wanting adventure ("What, you don't have war? No soldiers?"), and I can't remember the title and can't google it up. Maybe by Joanna Russ? (End-of-story spoiler inside.)

The women, mystified by his insistence that life isn't life without the chance to test yourself against mortality, inject him with a disease that has a 50-50 chance of killing him, thinking this should satisfy his requirements. Thanks for any assistance!
