A couple claim that they are ecosexuals, and they say they love the Earth and have a’marital relationship’ with it (pictured).
Annie Sprinkle (pictured) and Beth Stephens, both from San Francisco appeared today on ITV to talk with Alison Hammond & Dermot O’Leary regarding their sexual preferences
Beth described ecosexuality as someone who cares about the planet.
Annie added, “We believe that the earth loves us and that we can enjoy all that it has to offer.”
It’s just a way people describe their preference… it doesn’t mean you have to lose any other identity. This simply means that you take pleasure in the earth and give the earth pleasure.
Beth said, “When you go for a walk, you are giving the earth massage with your feet,” and that if you love the earth, you can marry it.
They were asked by the presenters how they became ecosexuals.
Reaction: Viewers were left gobsmacked by the duo, with one person writing on Twitter: ‘I have no words to say what I think about these two. I mean, what the actual f*** are they going on about?!’
“We offer a range of emotions that people may feel. It is possible to start off being eco-erotic…, or even eco-sensual…,” they stated.
Annie continued, “You need to be passionate about it. Let your erotic energy flow through your body and connect with the tree. You will love and feel that tree.”
Beth explained to Beth that some people question whether the tree is ‘conscientious’. Beth replied, “But we cannot talk to the tree. But we listen to it and try to discern if the tree loves to be hugged.”

Annie added that while Annie said Annie doesn’t mind trees being killed, it is taboo to get intimate with them.
The segment was a puzzle to Twitter users, one of whom wrote: ‘What am I looking at and listening too? It’s ridiculous and I would recommend your book.
Another one said “Oh, deary me!” They’re like two acts!!,’ while a third added: ‘I have truly heard it all now.’
Reaction: Twitter was used by some social media users to express concern about the couple’s actions.
