A new viral video making the rounds is confusing the hell out of a lot of people who are now learning about the horrors of “ecosex.” The video, uploaded to Facebook by In the NOW, begins with the words, “there are humans that ‘f**k’ nature” and shows hippies literally rubbing dirt on themselves and licking trees. One woman can be seen sensually shoving dirt into her mouth before the words “ecosexuals consider earth to be a lover not a mother” appear onscreen. “They even perform ‘weddings,’” the video continues, showing a mass congregation of “ecosexuals” marrying “anything natural, from rocks to mountains and seas.” The clip goes on to state that “ecosexuals believe their ‘faith’ will help environmentalism be taken more seriously.”
See the bizarre clip for yourself below.
Needless to say, the goal of helping “environmentalism be taken more seriously” is not working out, judging by the comments on the clip.
A quick Google search of “ecosex” reveals there is a literal “manifesto” for the practice.
Its first point reads “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 mutual and sustainable relationship with the Earth, we collaborate with nature.” The manifesto goes on to describe the “ecosexual” community as “rapidly growing,” describing it as “an identity.” “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.”
