When two fun loving San Francisco women take a hike in the woods and discover that energy corporations are destroying the mountains, polluting the water and killing all living things in their path at an alarming rate, these two queer girls see red and go green. Beth Stephens, a sassy butch professor and Annie Sprinkle, a high femme ex-porn star join the environmental movement only to discover they don't quite fit in, so they decide to make the movement more sexy, fun and diverse. They shift the metaphor from "Earth as mother" to "Earth as lover" and realize that they are "ecosexual”. To fight corporate greed they take their clothes off, get really dirty, and get arrested for shutting down mining operations. Drama and humor ensue. By the end of this show, you just may realize you are ecosexual too.

July 4th - ASSUMING THE ECOSEXUAL POSITION

Annie Sprinkle & Elizabeth Stephens’ visiting artist lecture,
What happens when two city girls embrace the Earth as their lover? They get real dirty! Then they marry the Earth, Sky, Sea, Rocks, Sun, and more, in a series of performance art weddings. Stephens & Sprinkle have developed “SexEcology,” a new field of research which explores the places where sexology and ecology intersect. These ‘grrrrls gone green’ make experimental theater, visual art, video, and lead ecosex walking tours & workshops. Once you know more about the budding ecosex movement, you just might discover you are an ecosexual too. Elizabeth Stephens is an artist, professor at UCSC, and filmmaker. Her new film, Goodbye Gauley Mountain—An Ecosexual Love Story, makes the environmental activist movement more sexy, fun and diverse. Annie Sprinkle was a prostitute and porn star for twenty years. She became an internationally known performance artist, and the first porn star to earn a Ph.D.  For more about Beth & Annie’s work, www.sexecology.org

July 6th - EXPLORE ECOSEXUALITY! 25 WAYS TO MAKE LOVE WITH THE EARTH: WORKSHOP

With Luke Dixon, Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle,
Do you find being in nature sensual and even a bit erotic? Do you love skinny dipping, laying in the sun, the smell of cut grass? Do you long to have a deeper connection with nature? We will go on a stimulating journey as we shift the metaphor from “Earth as mother” to “Earth as lover.” Learn all about this satisfying new sexual identity, “ecosexual.” Find your E-spot, discover where you are on the ecosexual scale, become more aware of the erotic possibilities with nature. Try some eco-sexercises such as hugging trees, licking rocks, making love to the roses.  We’ll explore nature through our senses and imaginations, through circulating energy and doing “ecstasy breathing.” We’ll share our stories, explore a variety of experiences, and inspire each other. We will create safe and supportive space to explore the possibilities for more pleasure and deep satisfaction. We’ll will listen, taste, smell, see, and touch nature. Learn how loving the Earth romantically, and erotically can make your love grow to enormous proportions. By the end of this workshop you will know that you always have a lover– your lover Earth. Everyone is welcome to attend, all levels, all sexual persuasions and all genders.
Workshop Day 1: 12:00 PM-6:00 with a break for tea, soup and snacks. The workshop begins with the Ecosex walking tour. The walking tour  may be taken a la carte  or in conjunction with the rest of the day’s workshop activities.
