Campus Reform has this bizarre tale from Santa Monica College, where the “EcoSexual Extravaganza” took place earlier this month. Students married the ocean and “made love with the water” in order to foster a greater love for the Earth. Some attendees even explained the importance of consent regarding beginning a “physical relationship” with the planet:
Amber Katherine, a philosophy professor who helped organize the May 14 event, explained to Campus Reform that the purpose of the “wedding” was to bring about a deeper love for the planet through “ecocentric passion and even lust.”
Some students then made their way down to the water, where they were urged by event organizers to “consummate” the marriage and “make love with the water.”
“Stick your toes in the water … or any part of your body that you want.”
The event, according to Professor Katherine, “was funded by a number of campus organizations” with the main sponsor being the University’s Public Policy Institute chapter.
I’ll just leave this here:
That’s a, uh—interesting day at the beach, I guess.
