The eco$exuals enjoy having $ex near trees
Saving the earth is something most of us want to do but we draw the line at having s*x with it. Yet a group of people who call themselves “eco$exuals” are doing just that –in the belief that s*x with the earth will help it regenerate.
The ultimate nature-lovers have come
together this week at an arts festival in Sydney, where they are romping with the elements, and each other, in an interactive installation called the “eco$exual bathhouse,”
from artists Loren Kronemyer and Ian Sinclair of Pony Express.
Eco$exual expert Amanda Morgan, from the UNLV School of Community Health Sciences, revealed eco$exuality has differing degrees, from people who try to use sustainable $ex products and enjoy skinny dipping to those who like to get down and dirty.
She said: “There are people who roll around in the dirt having an orgasm covered in potting soil.
“There are people who f*** trees, or masturbate under a waterfall.”
The eco$exual movement
is growing and has taken hold in the last two years, according
to American sociologist Jennifer Reed and Google search data shows a dramatic spike in interest
in 2016 and members of the movement estimate that 100,000 people around the world now call themselves eco$exuals.
Some people take it so seriously they even MARRY the earth.
Artists Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stephens, who have published an “eco$ex manifesto” on their website $exEcology said they’ve officiated wedding ceremonies where they and fellow eco$exuals marry the earth, the moon, and other natural entities.
They have made several films
on the theme and tour theatres with their show Dirty $execology: 25 Ways to Make Love to the Earth.
Having $ex with nature’s bounty takes many forms – and last week a Jeremy Kyle guest was accused of pleasuring herself with carrots and cucumbers.
Not sure that’s what the eco$exuals have in mind.
