Ecosexuals: For Those Times When Hugging a Tree is Not Enough

h/t Breitbart – a rising green movement believes they have hit on a way to form a closer bond with nature, to help save the planet.

Ecosexuals Believe Having Sex with the Earth Could Save It

If you happen to find yourself in Sydney this week, you have the unique opportunity to have sex with the earth. You just need to stop by the “ecosexual bathhouse,” which is currently part of the Syndey LiveWorks Festival of experimental art. The bathhouse is an interactive installation created by artists Loren Kronemyer and Ian Sinclair of Pony Express, who described the work to me 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. But they also see their piece as a part of a much larger ecosexual movement, which they say is gathering momentum around the world.

And they may be right. Jennifer Reed, a PhD candidate in sociology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, is writing a dissertation on ecosexuality, and says that the number of people who identify as ecosexuals has increased markedly in the past two years. And Google search data confirms that interest in the term has spiked dramatically over the past year. We may look back on 2016 as the year ecosexuality hit the mainstream.

Ecosexuality is a term with wide-ranging definitions, which vary depending on who you ask. Amanda Morgan, a faculty member at the UNLV School of Community Health Sciences who is involved in the ecosexual movement, says that ecosexuality could be measured in a sense not unlike the Kinsey Scale: On one end, it encompasses people who try to use sustainable sex products, or who enjoy skinny dipping and naked hiking. On the other are “people who roll around in the dirt having an orgasm covered in potting soil,” she said. “There are people who fuck trees, or masturbate under a waterfall.”

I suspect this weird new craze is more of a temperate forest thing. Where I live, on the southern edge of the Australian tropics, the first thing you do after a walk through the woods, assuming you’ve avoided an encounter with poisonous snakes, crocodiles, dangerous packs of wild dogs, stinging trees, angry kangaroos (seriously!), wild pigs, or in swampy areas like my cousin’s famous “shortcut”, black blood-sucking leeches, is to make sure you haven’t been infested by neurotoxic paralysis ticks.

Obviously, the writer of that sentence did not know (or care) about objective case; it should read “depending on WHOM you ask.” My opinion is that anyone who tries to impregnate the earth or one of its inhabitants (aside from his wife, of course) deserves what he gets, ticks and all. This “movement” is symbolic, of course; such people would never stoop so low as to do something actually to help the ecosystem.

Methinks you need to catch your breath. In any case, I’m not sure if you really understand the meaning of a ‘troll’. This is more mocking them and having a bit of fun at their expense. To troll them he’d have to post something on an ecosex site because I think it’s highly doubtful that any of them will be reading Anthony’s.
You have to admit, it is a rather … bizarre behavior (and a rather bizarre concept that plants understand and ‘enjoy’ sex as we know it).
In fact, I’m not sure this is not a form of sexual abuse given that plants are not able to communicate consent.

Nuclear war is only a motion, a push of a button, a turn of the key, away. It has been said the first time was by water, the second by fire. An ark, doesn’t have to be a boat. The plans don’t reside with one person. Depending on circumstances, if it was just one person the undertaking might not happen. And then there are those that, knowing that, will work very hard to make sure the ark isn’t built. Much in the same way as Dugan Gates, I think, the first person recognized with HIV, decided to spread it among as many people as possible in the belief that the cure would be found if it affected enough people. If the ark isn’t built, destruction won’t happen. I was so hoping to get off this rock in my lifetime. There maybe some beautiful things here, out weighing it are the truly ugly horrible things.
Take this site for example. Who has the time and expertise to counter climate change ? Who has the resources and the official sanction of government ? Try to explain to someone, even intelligent people have a hard time grasping concepts and ideas as to how climate change and the agenda, is wrong.
I think an ark will be built. I don’t know how it’s going to happen given the political state of the world. It’d probably be a gift. Then maybe we shouldn’t leave. Is this the best that the development of life can offer ? Who, in their right mind, would want to repeat this endlessly ?
Eco sex ? Actually dirty and filthy. Why bother taking a shower, just go down to the local sewage plant and frolic in sewage… it a part of the earth… it’s so natural.. ( sarc on the last part here )

I was at Callanish (Lewis, Outer Hebrides) a few days ago and a minibus disgorged (gave birth?) to a dozen or so earth types ranging in age from ~ 20 to 70. In no time, one 25 something had her arms around a small standing stone and sobbed her way to ecstasy, while an older portly 50+ had his vials of blue liquid out plus a golden orb the size of a golf ball skewered with a steel needle which made a loud ringing tone when hit against a tall stone. Meanwhile, like an A380 on slow finals, a woman walked up the main axis of the stones with arms outstretched as wings in some sort of reverie. It was a bloody circus.
I was tempted to prise the huggers and ringers off the stones so a few stone snaps were possible (12,000 miles to be there) but plod might have judged it as assault, so a few choice words had to suffice.
Is this the new scene with nutters assaulting historic sites, not to mention doing unmentionable acts on parsnips and cucumbers? I hate to think what some of the stones had decorating them soon after. Yikes!

There are saltwater crocs in Florida, mostly in the southern part and very rare. But they are out there. People have spotted them in the ICW and in canals. Some skinny-dippers were attacked by two while frolicking in a canal….

“Revenge of the Killer Tomatoes strikes back!”
Plot – such as it is! – from Wikipaedia.
“Police assistant Lance Boyle is a childish detective who is lumbered with worthless police cases. However, after several murders in a nearby wood that concern Killer Tomatoes, Lance finds himself working alongside Kennedy Johnson, a Tomatologist, to solve the murders.
Nearby, Professor Mortimer Gangreen (John Astin) has begun using subliminal mind control on his talk show, disguised as talk show host Jeronahew. After kidnapping members of the Press and Media, Gangrene and his assistant Igor plot to use his brainwashed Press members, as well as the Subliminal Mind control, to overpower the human race and make the world a planet run by himself and his killer tomatoes.
Following countless killer tomatoes attacks, Lance and Kennedy finally reach Gangrene’s hideout, where they must pit themselves against killer tomatoes, brainwashed newsreaders and a giant Bacon, Lettuce and Human sandwich, of which Kennedy may be a part. With help from FT, (Fuzzy Tomato, from Return of the Killer Tomatoes) Lance rescues Kennedy and Gangreen is defeated, left at the mercy of the hungry killer tomatoes.”
Sorry – I never saw it so don’t know if the villain is Gangreen or Gangrene. I don’t suppose the script writers knew either.

Ecosexuality This community includes artists, academics, sex workers, sexologists, healers, environmental activists, nature fetishists, gardeners, business people, therapists, lawyers, peace activists, eco-feminists, scientists, educators, (r)evolutionaries, critters and other entities from diverse walks of life.
In the good olden days utilization of cucumbers, bananas, pumpkins &. such as sex toys used to be plain pornograpy. Now it is miraculously transformed into a noble cause (please note explicit presence of “sex workers” in their community). Quite an achievement.
BTW, the concept of “vegan sex toys” is particularly clever.

Then there was the story about William and Henry, two life long friends who were hiking in the woods one day. Suddenly, Henry screams out in pain telling William to go for help as he was bitten by a snake. William says he will be right back and heads back to town. He rushes into the doctor’s office and tells him to come along as his friend needs help. The Dr asks, “What happened?” and William responded “My friend Henry was bitten by a snake”. The Dr says, “Well, I am tied up with a patient now but can be there in about 10 minutes. In the meantime you should go back and make two small slits over the bite mark and suck out the venom.” “That”, the Dr continues,” will keep Henry from dying before I get there”. So William rushes back to Henry and says “The Dr is on the way but he told me what to do to keep you from dying until he gets here”. Henry says ” Please William help me”. William asks Henry where he was bitten and Henry says ” On the penis”. William hesitates for a moment so Henry asks “What is going to happen to me?” William replies,
“Henry, you gonna die”.

I recall from my reading of The Golden Bought (1890, Sir James George Frazer) that there were fertility rituals in pre-Christian Europe that involved having sex in freshly ploughed earth – with or without partners. Part of a general belief in sympathetic magic, IIRC. Culturally this movement seems to be rooted (pun intended) in the prehistoric past.
