The Gift of Playa Azul

I cannot count how many people shared the gift of Playa Azul this May 14-15 weekend.

People of all colors, ages, sizes, genders.

People who were quiet and respectful of each other, of neighboring groups, of myself, of the service our janitors provide by cleaning the trash cans.

PlayaAzul2Having orchestrated this peace on the pointe, together with my neighbor, Frank Milton Ramirez-Fagundo is perhaps my most valuable gift to Puerto Rico.

Reclaiming public spaces as shared spaces for healthy fun together and for the appreciation of nature: That’s the ecosexual way.

My gratitude goes to those who at some point have sacralized this pointe with me, including Mirta Garcia, Anya Trahan, C Cordelia Raymond, Shaison Antony, Stacey Belle, Maria Sanchez, Susan M Block, Paola Pagán, Linda Maria Rodriguez Guglielmoni, Aristides Mendez, Karen Hery, Hector Martinez Rivera, Taber Shadburne, Andrew Trahan, and many others.

If we hadn’t done it, i bet over half of these people would be now in a mall breathing from air conditioners and spending money they don’t have. My estimate is at least 100 people enjoyed an alternative to that compulsive behavior just this weekend.

PlayaAzul3Ocean breeze, caressing waves, shady trees. What a great combination.

And it’s free! In a country that s bk, I think we are making a great social contribution.

We definitely deserve some special award!

It’s a pleasure, as I read my students papers this weekend, to listen to the amicable hustle and bustle of families that enjoy healthy recreation in nature.

 

Yay!

Ecosexual Coming Out Day – May Day as Day of Love and Ecosexual Solidarity

It’s Coming! Ecosexual Coming Out Day is May 1st!

Are you dirty and proud!?!

Coinciding with Beltane — the Pagan Fertility Festival — and International Worker’s Day, Ecosexual Coming Out Day is a day for Earth Lovers and Lovers of the Wild around the world to stand proud together and celebrate our life-long love affair with the Earth.

Indeed, the first Maypole dance in North America was in 1627 in Merrymount, MA.  According to historian Peter Linebaugh, it was a reLOVEution of sorts, where local colonists, runaway servants, some former slaves and indigenous people danced around the maypole chanting, together, “Hooray, hooray, the 1st of May, outdoor loving begins today!”*

Terry Tempest Williams said it beautifully, again, only 25 years ago.  It still rings just as true and just as powerful today:

“It is time for us to take off our masks…and admit we are lovers, engaged in an erotics of place. Loving the land. Honoring its mysteries. Acknowledging, embracing the spirit of place—there is nothing more legitimate and there is nothing more true. That is why we are here. That is why we do what we do…We love the land. It is a primal affair.”
The Erotics of Place: Yellowstone

For many around the world, May Day marks the transition out of the depths and cold of winter and into the abundance of the growing season. It’s a time of hope for the season to come. It’s a time for celebrating the fertility and fecundity in the soils and in our own bodies. It’s a time of year for productive collaboration with the soil and the sun to create nourishment for our communities for the year to come.

For many around the world, May Day is a day of celebration of nature AND of labor solidarity!  Solidarity among the people of all colors, genders, ages, orientations, and origins: people who are tired of being expropriated of the fruits of our labor and of our true identity as earth lovers.  That’s where the “green/eco” and a “red/socialist” aspects to May Day coincide.  It happened in late 19the century in the Hay Market of Chicago, when the free-love anarchist Emma Goldman was around.  That’s where the eight-hour movement started.  Eight hours for work, eight for sleep, eight for play.  Yes, PLAY!  You heard it right.  Not production.  Not consumption.  PLAY!  FUN!  JOY!  ORGASM!  That’s what the eight-hour movement wanted.  It was repressed in Chicago by police brutality.  But it went world wide.  That’s why May Day is a respected holiday and day of labor solidarity in so many countries!

Ecosexuality supports and encourages people to return their love to the ecosystems that nourish us.  In so doing, we can engage in a creative partnership with the Earth that enables us to harvest the fruits of our own labors, rather than investing our time, heart and energy into a corporate culture that undermines the living Earth.

Ecosexuality calls for a culture of creativity rather than a culture of consumption, a culture that produces abundance in collaboration with the Earth — be it in the form of healthy food, clean water, renewable energy, art, pleasure, orgasms or love.

 

Are you drawn towards this vision of creative abundance? Harvesting the fruits of your own labor? Or immersing yourself in the sensual playground of the natural world?

Then take off your mask and declare your love for the Earth!

I live inside the garden

vines twisting

gathering shapes

around the strength of oak, elm, ash

Hibiscus deep throated

slender stemmed

openings of scarlet

African violets dark furred leaves

lift round and fragile petals to the breeze

Orchids delicately scent the humid air . . . .

Karen Hery’s “Open Wider”

Some days it feels like

The whole world is my lover

And Nature . . .

She’s my best lover of all.

She comforts me with her breezes

And steadies me against the trunks

Of her trees

And you, all of you,

You are my lovers too

Whether we want to admit to that

To each other or not

Go ahead . . .

Look me fully in the eye

And decide whether or not it’s true

A Taste of Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens Ecosex Manifesto

 

Ecosex Manifesto 1.0

Elizabeth Stephens & Annie Sprinkle

flower

i.         WE ARE THE ECOSEXUALS. The Earth is our lover. We are madly, passionately and fiercely in love, and we are grateful for this relationship each and every day. In order to create a more a mutual and sustainable relationship with the Earth, we collaborate with nature. We treat the Earth with kindness, respect and affection.

ii.         WE MAKE LOVE WITH THE EARTH. We are aquaphiles, teraphiles, pyrofiles, and aerophiles. We shamelessly hug trees, massage the earth with our feet, and talk erotically to plants. We are skinny dippers, sun worshipers and stargazers. We caress rocks, are pleasured by waterfalls and admire the Earth’s curves often. We make love to the Earth through our senses. We celebrate our E-spots. We are very dirty.

iii.       WE ARE A RAPIDLY GROWING COMMUNITY OF ECOSEXUALS.

This community includes artists, academics, sex-workers, sexologists, healers, environmental activists, nature fetishists, gardeners, business people, therapists, lawyers, peace activists, eco-feminists, scientists, educators (r)evolutionaries, critters and other entities from diverse walks of life. Some of us are SexEcologists, researching the areas where sexology and ecology intersect in our culture. As consumers we aim to buy less. When we must, we buy green, organic and local. Whether on farms, at sea, in the woods, or in small towns or large cities, we connect and empathize with nature.

iv.       WE ARE ECOSEX ACTIVISTS. We will save the mountains, waters and skies by any means necessary, especially through love, joy and our powers of seduction. We will stop the rape, abuse and poisoning of the Earth. We do not condone the use of violence, although we understand that some ecosexuals may choose to fight those most guilty for destroying the Earth with public disobedience, anarchist and radical environmental activist strategies. We embrace the revolutionary tactics of art, music, poetry, humor and sex. We work and play tirelessly for Earth justice and global peace. Bombs hurt.

v.         ECOSEXUAL IS AN IDENTITY. For some of us being ecosexual is our primary (sexual) identity, whereas for others it is not. Ecosexuals can be GLBTQI, heterosexual, asexual, and/or Other. We invite and encourage ecosexuals to come out. We are everywhere. We are polymorphous and pollen-amorous. We educate people about ecosex culture, community and practices. We hold these truths to be self evident: that we are all part of, not separate from, nature. Thus all sex is ecosex.

vi.       THE ECOSEX PLEDGE. I promise to love, honor and cherish you Earth, until death brings us closer together forever.

A Taste of SerenaGaia’s “Preface”

PREFACE

“Does Nature Inspire the Arts of Love?”

SerenaGaia Anderlini-D’Onofrio, PhD

Does nature inspire the arts of love?

. . . . .

Drama is the consciousness of life. Anot5-18.GR-Embrace(1)her way to put this–and one that expands from the person to the species—is, in the celebrated words of the Bard, “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” Puritans and their movement closed theaters for a while. With Cromwell’s controversial rule, the king was beheaded and the court exiled. Was it that Puritans and other social rebels of their time did not like to play, or, perhaps more likely, that they were too poor to feel genuinely invited to partake in the play of life? Pace their sense of being left out–which was in many cases well justified–this space between “play” and “life” is where consciousness resides.

. . . . .

This book’s invitation to ecosexuality welcomes everyone. It is an invitation to understand consciousness as the awareness of being a performer in one’s own life. If the nature of consciousness is play, what could be more natural than allowing nature to inspire the arts of love? Oh fellow animal, be human and be welcome to Ecosexuality.
