Friday Funny – Green Eco Porn (no, really)

From the Guardian, where they’ll print anything as long as its green…

Porn used to spread the green message: ‘The eco-sex activists who want to save the world…’F*ck for Forest film to use porn to spread their green message’

The eco-sex activists who want to save the world

F*** for Forest use porn to spread their green message. In a new documentary, they are taken to the Amazon to meet a threatened Peruvian tribe. But how can they rescue the planet when they can barely look after each other?

‘Blood and sperm. The perfect mix,’ says a tattooed hippy…Life-giving fluids we are all so afraid of. We’re so afraid of ourselves! It’s all organic.’  — ‘A new documentary, ‘F*ck for Forest’, detailing the activities of the group of the same name. They enjoy confronting society with sex, nudity and bodily fluids, but what F*** for Forest (FFF) really want to do is save the world’.

Few people would imagine any overlap exists between pornography and environmentalism, but FFF smash the two concepts together right there in their brutally blunt name. It’s a concise signifier of what they do and how little they care about what you think of it. The live displays are a sideline; funds are primarily raised via their website, which has images and videos of its core staff members and whatever volunteers they pick up on the street in myriad sexual permutations, from naked people up trees to chaotic orgies. Subscribers pay about £10 a month, and the proceeds go towards rainforest conservation projects in South America.

More here, if you can stomach it

Some might say “C’est la vie“, personally I think they deserve the freedom to be able to go f*** themselves. 😉

We’re all screwed.

Oh great. So the ad linked on this post is entitled “make it with a lifeguard”, which I made the mistake of clicking on. Nothing obcsene, other than obcsenely stupid, but I guess I better erase my cookies, given the title of your post. 🙂

“They enjoy confronting society with sex, nudity and bodily fluids…”
It sounds to me like they plan to save the world by making people sick of sex and by spreading fertility-destroying venereal diseases to reduce the population. Saving the forest is just a front.

This takes tree hugging to a whole new level.

Trygve Eklund

Not exactly a pride for Norway, I am sorry to say. Their domestic success is very limited; they are mainly seen as a pair of exhibitionist enjoying, in addition to their chosen activity, whatever provocation they are able to cause.

Annie

I can’t stomach it! Whatever next? Why is so much of life so degraded and ‘in your face’?
I suppose it’s one way of reducing the population; put us off the means of reproduction!

Robert Wykoff

Perhaps they can, uhhh, (self snip) a beehive while rolling in a Poinson Ivy field, after all, its all organic.

Some people will do darn near anything to get some attention. Unbelievable news item you uncovered. 🙂

I don’t believe in this sex nonsense … neither did my parents.

I just went and watched a little. Is there any way to unwatch this???
On the bright side… I think I just cured my nagging porn addiction. Of course, now having sex at all may be a problem!

1st Law: Always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.
2nd Law: The probability that a certain person be stupid is independent of any other characteristic of that person.
3rd Law: A stupid person is a person who caused losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses.
4th Law: Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular non-stupid people constantly forget that (at all times and places and under any circumstances) to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake.
5th Law: A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person.

Some doubt has been cast as to the ability of H. erectus to survive in a tropical rainforest (Storm, 2001: 210).

The problem with the tree diddlers is gymnosperm.

What do greens say after sex? “Sorry”.
What do sceptics say after sex? “Sorry”.
So what is the difference? …
well the facts were the same except …
Sceptics weren’t expecting much but they have to say sorry, because they are so embarrassed it went up … and doesn’t seem to want to go down.
Greens say sorry because they boasted how big is was going to get it all looked so promising but failed to impress.

So that’s what the greens (er,watermelons) have done for climate science…
From Al Gore to pal whore… prostituting science to make a buck…

General Jack D. Ripper will be pleased these people are so keen to protect America’s precious bodily fluids.
Kubrick was a genius and a prophet. Or more likely a very gifted student of human silliness. The whole world is turning into one enormous black comedy.

There is absolutely nothing less sexy than pornography. Porno flicks are just dumb, dumb, dumb.

Mac the Knife

That’s a shabby way to treat a virgin forest!
Now that we’ve heard from the shallow end of the gene pool….. May be it’s time to add a bit more bleach,eh?

In 2009 they were ejected from an anarchist congress in the city for insisting on the right to remove their clothes during a workshop entitled “Anarchy and Sex”. The controversy resulted in the entire congress being shut down early. The eco-sex activists who want to save the world

Some how you have to admire people who get thrown out of an Anarchist’s convention for breaking the rules!

These wizards should go on the Teddy Roosevelt memorial Brasilian virgin forest tour. If they follow in his footsteps, it could provide a happy ending for all them.

Adds a whole new twist to William F. Buckley’s comment:
“I’d rather be gored by a boar than bored by a Gore.”

Anthony:
I have tried and tried but I cannot find this funny.
It is so sad that it makes me want to cry.

As a Nottingham Forest supporter I think that this demeans my football team.

They sound like that crazy general from Dr. Strangelove. “Precious bodily fluids” and such nonsense.

Robert of Ottawa

Ha, irony and perfect timing.
I am currently reading a gripping book:
Noble Savages – My life among two dangerous tribes – the Yanomamo and the enviromentalists anthropologists” by Napolean A. Chagnon (yes a French Canadian name).
In it, he describes his experiences and study of the Yanomamo Indians on the Venezuela/Brasil border in the Amazon. They were basically a stone age people with slash-and-burn agriculture and the tribes were continuously at war with each other, over sex, frankly.
These enviromentalists should read this book in their hotel in Manaus rather than make any pretences or false claims about nature. Life wasn’t all they believe it to be as a “Noble Savage”. Savage it certainly was … noble?

Oh dear – they really are desperate if they need to bring sex into it.
By the way, you missed bleeping out an eff-word, second to bottom line (if I can say “bottom”) in their second paragraph.
I do hope in this case, sex doesn’t sell. It’s pathetic. [snip]

Craig Moore

Some might say “C’est la vie“, personally I think they deserve the freedom to be able to go f*** themselves. 😉 Isn’t that what those that yoga in their togas aim to do?

Bob Diaz

Wow, just when I think someone can’t do something even more stupid or crazy, someone does. It makes me wonder if there’s any intelligent life on Earth.

Craig Moore

Sorry, the last sentence beginning with “Isn’t that” was mine.

Well. according to a Daily Mail survey on student sexual promiscuity:
“Other courses which made the top ten for student promiscuity included Engineering, and sports science.
“Bottom of the list came students studying environmental sciences who reported having 1.71 sexual partners on average since starting university, while those studying Theology were second from bottom with 2.13.”
Perhaps they’re just making up for lost time.

Geez … some guys will do anything to get laid, but I guess this beats the usual tree humping.

But all that strenuous activity just creates more CO2.

“they are taken to the Amazon”
Unless they walked, the planet would have been better served by them staying home.

Just another data point on the hockey stick of increasing societal banality.

Looks they’re finally doing to each other what eco-maniacs have been doing to civilization for decades. 🙂

I once read an article about sex dolls. Now, before I proceed I want to make it quite clear that this was done strictly for um, uh, yeah, investigatory purposes; yeah that’s it. Furthermore, I want to make it clear that this was strictly an intellectual pursuit. How weasely does that sound? But I kid you not when I say that I discovered that the ancients did indeed construct sex dolls. Made of wood. Perhaps an exotic wood. How they dealt with the splinters I’ll never know. Ooh. Ouch. Yeow. Ouch. So, if the CAGW crowd wants to return us to pre-industrial society, well, I ain’t pickin’ splinters outta any of ’em.

I thought all of the eco loons were screaming about overpopulation?

davidmhoffer

Given that there is more free porn on the internet than a single human being can watch in their entire lifetime (several times over) you kinda gotta hand it to these guys. They have figured out how to make porn, get paid for it, and make their customers feel good about themselves for paying for it.
That did not come out the way I meant. But every other way I phrased it was worse…

Somehow i don’t think Kevin Trenberth’s science is out of place on a porno thread.
Kevin Trenberth Loses His Strawberries
As greenhouse gases still accrete
This captain of the climate wars
Is searching for the missing heat
That he believes the ocean stores
The missing heat’s the missing key!
Why ice will melt and swell the tides!
The Kraken that he knows must be!
That Davy Jones’ locker hides!
(The soul’s more heavy than we think
A truth that everyone must face
And to what depths a soul may sink!
O! To what dark and dismal place!
Our Captain Trenberth can’t withstand
The stress of twenty thousand leagues
He tumbles in his restless hand
The three steel balls that once were Queeg’s
MY GEOMETRIC LOGIC PROVES
HEAT TELEPORTS FROM PLACE TO PLACE!
FROM SKIES INTO THE DEPTHS IT MOVES
AND IN BETWEEN IT LEAVES NO TRACE!)
(When silent faces stare at you
Its best like Queeg to shut your jaw
But Trenberth’s rant is never through
For he believes they stare in awe!}
It is possible that some people may not be familiar with the courtroom scene in The Caine Mutiny.

Yet another corollary to Murphy’s Law:
In a world of six-billion people, any behavior that can happen will happen. So not only is it not surprising that this happened, it had to happen.
It is a little surprising that any journal would give them coverage . . . but wait, this is The Guardian. Never mind.
