The free market once again works overtime in unexpected ways to serve those who hate the free market-- by making sex greener?

Other ways of "greenwashing" the bedroom, asoutlined by TreeHugger and Greenpeace, include turning out the lights,not buying PVC or vinyl accoutrements, ensuring S&M paddles aremade from sustainably harvested timber, using organic massage oils,showering together, using bamboo bed sheets (they come from a rapidlyrenewable resource and are said to be "super sexy"), and wearinglingerie made with renewable fibres such as hemp (Enamore), bamboo(Butta) and other organic goodness (GreenKnickers, Buenostyle, PeauEthique).

For the green honeymoon, of course. 

No government-run entity will ever be clever and attentive enough to customer's needs to ensure that sadomasochism is environmentally friendly. But the free market? Gotcha covered. Of course, when they have the luxury of living in a capitalist society, it's easy for capitalism-haters to take for granted their renewable-resource love toys.

My long-time favorite is the "Waffle House Doo Wop," which you can hear, here.
