Annie Sprinkle and long time Earth First! activist, Kim Marks (who is also the owner of As You Like It sex shop), will be leading a hike in Oregon on Sunday, April 15th for what they’re calling an “ecosexy exploration of the Clackamas River!”
“…Find your e-spot by exploring the sensual side of nature, including the secret sexy life of plants. And, learn new ways to enjoy the Earth in your sex life. This hike will be funny, kinky, educational and full of ecosexy goodness.”
Along with the fame of being featured in the Earth First! Journal last year, Annie Sprinkle is also an internationally known multi-media artist whose work is often studied in History of Performance Art classes, gender studies and film studies at major Universities/Colleges. She has continuously toured one-woman theater performances about her life since 1989, such as Post Porn Modernist and Herstory of Porn. She was also one of the pivotal players in the 80’s “sex positive feminist movement,” and her art work has long championed sex education and equal rights. The film she produced and directed, The Sluts and Goddesses Video Workshop has played in well over 100 film festivals, at museums and galleries, including at the Guggenheim in NYC. Ms. Sprinkle became the first sex film star to successfully bridge into the world of art, and to earn a Ph.D., which she was awarded from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco, in 2002. This is a great opportunity to experience the magic of Annie Sprinkle first hand, as well as learn some amazing things about the local environment in the Portland area.
Rain or shine. Please bring lunch, water, and sturdy boots. The weather is very unpredictable this time of year, so don’t forget extra layers of clothes and water resistant gear. All adults are welcome on this unique tour where art meets theory, practice and activism.
They are offering a sliding scale on the cost of the hike, so email ’em ahead of time with your situation and coordinate a trade. Folks can buy tickets here.
The Ecosex Walking tour concept(s) are developed by artist/professor Elizabeth Stephens in collaboration with Annie Sprinkle.
