An increasing number of people have come out of the closet- or the woods as it were- identifying as an “Ecosexual.” This brings whole new meaning to the term “getting in touch with nature.”
Trump just got 10,000 more votes.
Break has been covering a long list of people over the years who have had sex with cars, a pool raft and even some lady who is in love with the Eifel Tower. “Objectum sexuality” is where people are sexually attracted to and sometimes have intimate relationships with inanimate objects. Now Ecosexuality has come along and is part of an environmental movement that takes this concept to a whole new level. In part Ecosexuals want to have sex with planet earth for the sake of the environment.
Does this mean we are going to have to let Mother Earth into the men’s room?
According to an expert on the topic, Amanda Morgan of the UNLV School of Community Health Sciences, ecosexuals have a range of environmental based sexuality. This is everything from use “sustainable” sex toys and get in touch with nature by going naked hiking and skinny dipping to "people who roll around in the dirt having an orgasm covered in potting soil."
This week in Sydney, Australia a group of ecosexuals that are part of an art collective known as the Pony Express are putting on an exhibit called the Ecosexual Bathhouse to help indoctrinate people into their lifestyle. The nature loving artists, Loren Kronemyer and Ian Sinclair say that it is a "no-holds-barred extravaganza meant to dissolve the barriers between species as we descend into oblivion as the result of our global environmental crisis.”
If you thought this was just a few artist weirdos at some festival, it doesn’t end there; this is a whole full-fledged movement that has been gaining steam for over the past decade. There is an ecosex manifesto which outlines what it means to be an ecosexual. Bullet point 2 of the manifesto states that: “We Make Love With The Earth: We are aquaphiles, teraphiles, pyrophiles and aerophiles. We shamelessly hug trees, massage the earth with our feet, and talk erotically to plants.”
It seems to be working.
A book called “Eco-sex: Go Green Between The Sheets and Make Your Love Life Sustainable” aims to help make your sex life “more carbon neutral.” Is this a problem with people burning coal while they are banging? That might be a whole other fetish.
A documentary called “Goodbye Gauley Mountain: An Ecosexual Love Story” follows the story of a couple named Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stephens who are ecosexual activists in a “pollen-amorous” relationship with the Appalachian Mountains:
