Water Makes Us Wet: An Ecosexual Adventure

With a poetic blend of curiosity, humor, sensuality and concern, this film chronicles the pleasures and politics of H2O from an ecosexual perspective. Travel around with Annie, a former sex worker, Beth, a professor, and their dog Butch, in their E.A.R.T.H. Lab mobile unit, as they explore the complex history and politics of water on a quirky adventure across the Golden State in their E.A.R.T.H. Lab mobile unit. 

On a journey that spans the sacred and the profane, tragedy and comedy, they meet with an array of water experts, activists, spiritual advisors and regular folks, seeking the truth about our relationship to water. They hike into the remote site of Nestle’s dubious water bottling racket. They play in the family pool where Annie gave her first blowjob. They commune with elephant seals, consult an oracle, and plunge a toilet. Beth anoints a parched shrub with water from her nostrils. They contemplate the flavor bouquet of drinking water made from wastewater. They even crash San Francisco’s Pride Parade with erotic water chants. The resulting assemblage of facts, thoughts and feelings about water composes a messy ecosexual philosophy about the intimate and life-giving qualities of the most vital liquid on Earth. 

Ecosexuality shifts the metaphor “Earth as Mother” to “Earth as Lover” to create a more reciprocal and empathetic relationship with the natural world. When their road trip climaxes in a shocking event, their affectionate partnership with the Earth saves the day, reuniting their family and affirming the power of water, life and love.

Bios

Beth Stephens & Annie Sprinkle have been partners and collaborators for 16 fertile years. Annie was a sex worker who morphed into an internationally known performance artist touring one-woman shows about her life in sex and a feminist post porn pioneer. Beth was a feisty punk rocker dyke turned interdisciplinary artist and professor at UCSC exploring themes of gender, queerness and feminism. In 2008, Beth and Annie married the Earth and came out as ecosexuals. Their “Ecosex Manifesto” launched a movement and they officially added the E to GLBTQI-E. Their award-winning documentary film about coal mining, “Goodbye Gauley Mountain - An Ecosexual Love Story” is available on iTunes and from Kino Lorber. Currently they are working on a book about their work, “Assuming the Ecosexual Position” for University of Minnesota Press. Their visual art, films and performances were presented at Documenta 14 in 2016-2017. These girls have gone green and are dirty and proud.


This screening is part of EcoFutures festival (4-19 April 2019), organized by CUNTemporary / Arts Feminism Queer. More info on www.cuntemporary.org 

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
