Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle have been creating multimedia projects together for 20 years, about love, environmental issues and the sensual pleasures of the natural world. Stephens has been a professor at University of California Santa Cruz for 27 years. Sprinkle was a sex worker turned performance artist. The duo make films, produce symposiums, create theater and performance art. Their Ecosex Manifesto launched the Ecosex Movement. They are currently making a film about fire for which they were awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2021. Their book, Assuming the Ecosexual Position—the Earth as Lover (University of Minnesota Press) chronicles their epic love story and art/life adventures.
