Just When You Thought You’d Seen It All: Ecosexuals

Environmentalists are a weird bunch. You have those that are claiming that just about everything causes climate change and constantly pushing their green agendas, And then you have these people, Ecosexuals. Ecosexuals take the going green thing to a whole new level. Some of them believe that having sex with the earth could save it.

The term “ecosexuality” has existed since the early 2000s, when it started appearing as a self-description on online dating profiles. It wasn’t until 2008 that it began its evolution toward a fully fledged social movement.”

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.”

Hide your plants…

But this is not a laughing matter to some.

Ecosexuality isn’t just a hobby, according to the manifesto, it is an identity equal to being gay or bisexual.

It says: “For some of us being ecosexual is our primary (sexual) identity, whereas for others it is not. Ecosexuals can be GBTQI, heterosexual, asexual, and/or other. We invite and encourage ecosexuals to come out. We are everywhere. We are polymorphouse and pollen-amourous.”

Can plants give consent? People marrying the earth or using it in some kink is definitely an odd one. But I don’t see how it is helping the earth or their cause of stopping climate change. In fact, it seems like it distracts from their goal. But maybe keeping these overzealous environmentalists busy is for the best.
