Professor Elizabeth Stephens and collaborator Annie Sprinkle are awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in film and release their new book, Assuming the Ecosexual Position: The Earth as Lover
Assuming the Ecosexual Position—The Earth as Lover is the story of the artistic collaboration between the originators of the ecosex movement, their diverse communities, and the Earth. In 2008, Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle married the Earth in a UCSC redwood grove, which set them on the path to explore the realm of possibilities of ecosexuality. The book describes how the two came together as lovers and collaborators, how they took a stand against homophobia and xenophobia, and how this union led to the miraculous conception of the Love Art Laboratory.
