Ecosexuality has actually been around for over a decade. The moniker has appeared in dating profiles since as early as 2000. It’s gained traction recently thanks to President Donald Trump’s opinion on climate change Which he calls “Bullshit.”
There are now over 100,000 people who identify as ecosexual and the number is climbing. Annie Sprinkle and her partner Elizabeth Stephens have published an “Ecosex Manifesto” and a few documentaries on ecosexuality.
At 2015’s San Francisco Pride, they held a ribbon cutting ceremony to add an E to the LGBTQIA acronym. The act has not been recognized by the queer community at large.
It’s odd, but many are accepting of the new sexuality. After all, all they want is to reconnect people with nature. Or as Sprinkle puts it, Ecosexuality seeks to “move beyond the depressing Al Gore stuff.”
I just hope they don’t get any infections.
