Have you ever thought of this beautiful Earth as an erotic partner?

Well, perhaps these Ecosexuals will inspire you to run your hands through grass and caress flower petals in a slightly different way.

Sydney’s LiveWorks Festival of experimental art is home to the ‘Ecosexual Bathhouse’ which gives you the opportunity to take part in an intimate movement gathering momentum around the world, Vice reports.

Amanda Morgan, a faculty member at the UNLV School of Community Health Sciences who is involved in the Ecosexual movement, described the unusual sexuality as a spectrum.

Apparently it ranges from people who use environmentally friendly sex products or enjoy skinny dipping to ‘people who roll around in the dirt having an orgasm covered in potting soil’ to ‘people who fuck trees, or masturbate under a waterfall’.

Masturbating under a waterfall does sound pretty majestic…

The Ecosexual Bathhouse, created by artist duo Pony Express offers a pollination gallery bursting with blossom, a windplay zone where you can be caressed by a loving breeze, a composting glory hole (doesn’t need explaining) and a devolution swing (I have no idea).

Speaking to Vice, Pony Express described their work as:

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).

They also have an eco-porn screening, a post consumer sauna chamber, hourly bee swarms, and a professional metamorphosing mistress (what a title).

It will cost adults $35 and concessions $25 to ‘leave behind the urban wasteland and enter a realm where all your ecological fantasies can come true in florid detail’.

With over 100,00 identifying as nature-loving ecosexuals, the movement’s growing prominence has prompted artist and activist couple Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stephens to create an Ecosexual manifesto.

On their website, they write:

The Earth is our lover. We are madly, passionately, and fiercely in love, and we are grateful for this relationship each and every day. In order to create a more mutual and sustainable relationship with the Earth, we collaborate with nature.

Sprinkle and Stephens can also can be booked for gigs, educational talks, weddings, Ecosex walking tours, and personalised Ecosex experiences.

They’re going to have to make the LGBTQI acronym into some sort of memorable word soon because Ecosexuals have unofficially added an ‘E’ to it.

Jennifer Reed, a PhD candidate in sociology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, is writing a dissertation on Ecosexuality.

Her research has revealed that this is different from other social movements as it focuses on personal behaviour and pleasure rather than protests or politics.

Interestingly, Morgan said we have to start thinking about the Earth as a lover because:

If you piss off your mother she’s probably going to forgive you. If you treat your lover badly, she’s going to break up with you.

Yes, they are fingering the flower…

A particularly intriguing part of Sprinkle and Stephens’ research is their list of lexicon which includes a snow job, biophilia, ecomasochism, ecojaculating, e-spot, treedonism and compostgasm.

Sex is the strongest human drive, so maybe it makes sense to sexualise nature in order to get mankind to care about the environment.

I can’t imagine getting turned on by fingering a flower though.
