What is an ecosexual? This NSFW doc explores being a ‘lover’ of nature

Jasmine Andersson March 23, 2018

“There is a lot of c*ck in nature,” starts the opening of Viceland’s ‘Ecosexuals’ trailer.

“Imagine a scenario in which you truly believe your p*ssy is magic.”

The documentary, which is part of the channel’s SLUTEVER series, is looking at ecosexuality, a sexual identity which is based around seeing the earth as “a mother, not a lover,” according to co-creator of the ecosexual movement, Annie Sprinkle.

Alongside her partner, academic Beth Stephens, the two created a movement after they came out” as ecosexuals in 2009 in a marriage ceremony which they called a wedding to the Earth.

The followers encourage each other to find their “eco spot” (or E-Spot, if you will) to discover what they find the sexiest thing about nature.

Ecosexuals can constitute as people who roll around in the dirt having an orgasm covered in potting soil, right through to people who have sex with trees or masturbate under a waterfall.

In the documentary itself, participants can be seen licking trees.

The trailer also expands to look at two women who are having sex in public on top of some soil, and are eating it during intercourse.

“Being an ecosexual is about my connection and eroticism with nature,” says one participant in a VICE documentary.

“I get especially turned on by trees,” volunteers another.

There are said to be around 100,000 people who openly identify as ecosexuals.

In the movement’s ecomanifesto, followers promise to “love, honour and cherish you earth, until death brings us closer together forever.”

There are also a few ecosexual celebrities in the movement’s ranks.

Singer Peaches is also an ecosexual champion.

“Dirt is a wonder, dirt is real, dirt is precious, dirt gives us breath,” the singer wrote to celebrate the movements latest Ecosymposium.

Ecosexuals can be watched on Viceland.
