Assuming the Ecosexual Position in ecoartscotland

The story of the artistic collaboration between the originators of the ecosex movement, their diverse communities, and the EarthSprinkle and Stephens tread gently and respectfully when addressing serious subject matter; especially since at the core of the “Ecosexual Position” is a conversation about climate crisis and ecological devastation. However, for some, it can be difficult to absorb the hard truth of things. With that in mind, using the device of comic relief, the authors have planted puns, playful semiotics and outrageously high camp throughout.

Joy is central to Stephens and Sprinkle’s ecosexual practice, process and purpose.
