When it comes to sexual orientation and lifestyle choice, we like to think we’re pretty progressive here at Sick Chirpse. Gay people? Love ‘em. Trans people? The more the merrier. Ecosexuals? Err… maybe a step too far.

Earlier this week, a group of students from Santa Monica College over in the States were led on an ‘EcoSexual Sextravaganza’ by their uni professor in which they ‘married the ocean’.
Amber Katherine, a philosophy professor who helped organise the event, said that the purpose of the ‘wedding’ was to bring about a deeper love for the planet through “ecocentric passion and even lust”.
There was a ceremony and everything, culminating in leaders of the event distributing rings to the students and announcing:
With this ring, I bestow upon the sea the treasures of my mind, heart and hands—as well as my body and soul. With the power vested in us, we now pronounce you ‘married to the sea.’
The students were then encouraged to head down into the ocean to “consummate” the marriage and “make love to the water.”
Stick your toes in the water … or any part of your body that you want.
Strange stuff indeed. I mean we all love nature and the environment and chilling at the beach on a nice, Summer’s day but that doesn’t mean we actually want to marry and have sex with the ocean.
One attendee, named ‘Serenity’ (sigh), even spoke on the importance of gaining consent from the ocean before you fuck it:
Back when I would hug trees in Santa Cruz, I would sort of ask the tree if it was okay if I hugged it and I would feel their spirit or energy or something give a response back, and then proceed accordingly. Consent is definitely important. Do you think the Earth would consent to fracking and pollution? Probably not.
Very important advice when pursuing sexual relations with a tree or bed of water. Wonder if this girl who routinely fucks trees would agree.
