To answer the question I get asked a lot...

Nature is all about sexual energy! Nature is one huge clamour to get it on! The word 'ecosexual' is modern, but it describes a timeless connection with our environment. It can be interpreted in all sorts of ways, but mainly revolves around these three:

  • Ecosexuality is getting turned on by the sensual world of nature - light, water, greenery, breeze, sky, birdsong or bear growl, a roll in the sand or the mud, whatever... This could be as simple as sitting down and listening to nature’s sounds or taking a barefoot walk, right up to full blown lovemaking - solo or with someone/s else – out in the natural world. (My favs are anything tropical: clear ocean water caressing my body, strong sunshine filtering through palm trees, extravagant flowers and fruits flaunting their sex appeal, etc, etc etc… mmm…)

  • Ecosexuality is re-evaluating the concept of ‘mother earth’ (who gives us stuff) into a more mutual relationship of ‘lover earth’. This aspect of ecosexuality is pro-environment, or can even be environmentally activist, coming from a feeling and instinctual place. Ecosexuality can reach for the same goals as environmental activism, but bypassing the brain-stage, and just appealing to the core of nature existing already in us, which feels good, good, good…

  • Ecosexuality is using enviro-friendly products around sex: eco-cool lubricants, natural fibre bedsheets, whatever it is you use...

In my opinion, all of these aspects are pretty interlocked. It would be hard to feel one without having at least some sense of the others. There is no way to separate any interpretation of ecosexuality from an enhanced and respectful and more joyful relationship with our natural world.

 

For me, ecosexuality is celebrating nature inside and outside of myself as one continuum. It is free-ing to connect with the glorious, tumultuous harmony of sexy nature, and I make love with nature through my senses every day, or whenever possible.

 

I want to get away from the idea that ecosexuality is a fetish or anything extraordinary, and move instead towards a view that feeling good, feeling sexy in a natural way as part of a natural environment is fun, erotic and has a ‘cleansing’ feeling of being ethical (harmonious) with our current and future world, with knock-on benefits for environmental awareness.

 

So… go out to your wildest places, take your clothes (and shoes) off as much as possible, take time, let go of outside thoughts, smile, immerse…
