Description

EARTH DAY Lecture:

Please join the UNLV College of Liberal Arts for a special Earth Day University Forum Lecture "Assuming the Ecosexual Position: Making the Environmental Movement More Sexy, Fun and Diverse," a performance art talk by Elizabeth Stephens, professor of art, University of California, Santa Cruz and Annie Sprinkle, sex educator and performance artist, Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality.

Stephens and Sprinkle developed “SexEcology,” a new field of endeavor exploring places where sexology and ecology intersect. They create experimental theater, visual art, video, lead ecosex walking tours and workshops, aiming to make the environmental movement a little more fun and diverse by shifting the metaphor of “Earth as mother” to “Earth as lover.” By the end of this Earth Day performance/lecture, you just might discover you are an ecosexual, too.

*Followed by a brief wedding ceremony to the Earth in UNLV's beautiful Baepler Xeric Garden.
