Family First Comment: Slippery Slope? It’s becoming the Dopey Slope!
“On May 1, 2014, the pair publicly married the soil – they were attracted to its power to give life, its beauty and the fact it’s “real dirty”.”
Walking into a sex chamber you would expect to see whips, chains and a pair of handcuffs.
But there is a temporary sex house in Melbourne that is nothing like you’d think.
As you venture deeper into the rooms you will find condoms that fit your fingers and surgical masks with grass sprouting from the mouth.
This is the sex house of an ecosexual, a person who makes the land their lover, bringing a whole new meaning to “environmentally friendly” and “whore-ticulture”.
The “Ecosexual Bathhouse” is in the tangles of the Melbourne Royal Botanic Gardens, created by Ian Sinclair and Loren Kronemyer.
Ecosexuals have fantasies about nature and use their senses of touch to strengthen their romantic and sensual feelings towards the environment.
The whole idea is if somebody can develop sexual attraction and a love for the biosphere, they will in turn look after it going into the future – it’s said to be a type of activism.
The term “ecosexual” was invented by Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle, two women who claim to be passionately and fiercely in love with the earth.
On May 1, 2014, the pair publicly married the soil – they were attracted to its power to give life, its beauty and the fact it’s “real dirty”.
Ecosexuals talk dirty to plants, kiss and lick the earth, bury themselves in soil and do nude dances while the environment watches on.
They also swim naked in natural waters, hug and stoke trees and give the earth massages.
