Assuming the Ecosexual Position: The Earth as Lover
The story of the artistic collaboration between the originators of the ecosex movement, their diverse communities, and the Earth.
What’s sexy about saving the planet? Funny you should ask. Because that is precisely—or, perhaps, broadly—what we have spent many years bringing to light in our lived art. In 2008, we married the Earth in a performance art wedding which set us on the path together to explore the realm of ecosexuality, taking the Earth as our lover and making our mutual pleasure an embodied expression of passion for the environment. Ever since, we have been not just pushing but obliterating the boundaries circumscribing biology and ecology, creating ecosexual art in our performance of an environmentalism that is feminist, queer, sensual, sexual, post-human, materialist, and steeped in humor.
