Ah, the things I learned as a porn clerk.
Have sex parties
"Unplug for a while and be the entertainment," says pioneering pornographer Annie Sprinkle, PhD. Sex parties are relatively easy to organize; set some clear rules and boundaries. Yes to light drink and refreshments. Yes to protection and understanding consent. No to Snapchat.
"Eco sex means that we don't just treat the Earth like our mother, but we treat the Earth like our lover," SprinkIe says. "Get outside, feel the nettles against your skin, feel the sunshine on your body. Our bodies are made of mostly water. So when you have sex, make waves, whether it's big splashes or little ripples."
Our generation is living longer, and having more sexual partners, but it makes sense to listen to our foremothers from the era of free love and peace. If you're a modern millennial with a few partners in rotation, doesn't it make sense to reduce, recycle, and reuse when you hit the sheets? Now you, too, can help save Gaia when you're effing.
