Ecosexual (e-co-sex-u-al): noun
1. ‘An environmentally conscious person whose adherence to green living extends to their romantic and/or sexual life’
2. A person who anthropomorphises nature and finds it erotic
Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle are charming, enigmatic, liberals who are on a two-women crusade to spread the word of ecosexuality: a combination of environmental activism and sexuality. They want to shift the metaphor from Mother Earth to Lover Earth, and they are doing it in public as loud as they can.
Stephens is at the helm as director of their new documentary that explores the perils of Mountain Top Removal, alongside the erotic majesty of nature. Primarily focussed on their home state of West Virginia, Stephens begins the story of deep mining tragedies of the 1930s up until the 2010 Massey Energy disaster that killed 29 people.
