Ecosexuality: The New Orgasmic Revolution on Planet Earth

Dear Earthlings:

This was one of my happiest and most spontaneous keynotes.  The theater was packed and the audience was wonderful.  Ecosexuality as a vernacular culture at its best.  Amazing questions.   Curious as to what this orgasmic revolution might be all about?  Listen!

If you're not a Facebooker, click to got to Youtube

In any event, heartfelt acknowledgements to Gabriella Cordova, Teri Ciacchi, and all the other generous organizers.  

Oh, and whether you're a presenter, an attendee, or a writer, poet, blogger, reporter, artist, practitioner, researcher interested in ecosexuality, please send us your contribution for the ecosexual anthology we plan to put together.  We expect a closing date of September 1st.  Read all details in the Call for Papers.

Until next time then.

Enjoy this Fourth of July!

Ecosexy Updates from 3WayKiss: Join Us Online, in Portland, and Big Apple City

Eco Clit, courtesy of Mocha
Dear Earthlings,

here at 3WayKiss things are happening so fast that we barely have time to think.  But we can't wait to let you know what's jelling up and how you can participate.

The Ecosexual Movement is swerving in the social media and the biosphere is beginning to feel it.  

EcoSex Summit.  Anyone can participate in this.  Just activate your digital system.  John Overton and Yours Truly interviewed for the EcoSex Summit, a series of conversations with EcoSex voices produced by Farhana Goga and Alan Styrdom in Cape Town.  We explain how to bring ecosex into your personal and planetary life and the benefits of it.  What's the PostaHouse project and how does it relate to the ecosexual vision?  Find out from the Interview.  It is accessible, free of charge, until Thursday, May 24, at 4 PM.  Don't forget to sign up for updates and "like" the Facebook page.  More previews coming soon.  The series of 18 interviews will be for sale when the Summit is complete.

EcoSex Symposium.  Portland, OR, June 29-July 1st.  This one does require traveling and for those who like that it will be a memorable full-immersion experience in the creation of ecosexuality, what it means, why it needs to exist, what it can do for people, the planet, our amorous lives, our sexual expression, and the relationship with our most compersive lover, third planet Earth or Gaia. 

It's now time too sign up, donate, get perks, and volunteer!  You can do this all in one stop: HERE!  Check out the exciting keynotes and workshops.  What's Yours Truly's title?  "Ecosexuality: The New Orgasmic Revolution on Plant Earth."  Exciting?  There's much more!  "Fluid Bonding," "The Pleasure of the Other," are some of Yours Truly's themes.  And many others will facilitate and teach.  "Saving the Earth is sexy," as organizer Gabriella Cordova explains.  Ecosexuality embraces life fully.  Sign up for the whole thing or event by event.  We will launch a book project and you can submit your contribution!  From out of town?  Ask for assistance with housing.  All details, contacts,  guidelines here.  The place to be!   Oh, and for those inclined to express ourselves as wordsmiths, there will be a call for contributions to an anthology of miscellaneous writing about the ecosexual experience.  Access the Call for Papers here!

Next are reminders for Bi/Lammy events in New York City.  Is the big apple ecosexual?  Taste the forbidden fruit and tell me!  In any event, we are meeting for the "biggest bi culture event of the year in NYC."  Bi Lines.  On Sunday, June 3rd, at 6:00 PM.  Catch all the details, program, presenters, attendees.  Get a ticket and mark yourself as attending here!

Or, show up on the corresponding Facebook Event.  Only $ 8.00 at the door.  The Nuyorican Poets Cafe is waiting for you! At 236 East 3rd Street, NY 10009.  Tel (212) 780-9386.  Meet Mirta Garcia visiting from Puerto Rico and other friends.  And learn all about the latest bi books, including Yours Truly's Bisexuality and Queer Theory 

Next is the big night for Lammy finalists.  We're all winners.  But who actually gets to take home the distinction?  Who do I root for when Justin Bond, Susie Bright are finalists too?  Suspense, suspense . . . And all is revealed at the Lammy Awards.  Monday, June 4th.  Find out all details in the Press Release.  Join us for the ceremony.  It's a bit expensive.  But it's great to become a donor for Lambda and all of LGBTQ Literature.  Without our imagination, what would we be?  Puppets.  Mere tools.  It's art that makes us real.  Ecosexual art that is.  Love, the ecology of life, is the art that makes life beautiful. The Awards are at 6:00 PM at CUNY Graduate Center, Proshansky Auditorium (365 5th Avenue, NY 10016).  The Gala at nearby Slate (54 West 21st, NY 10010) follows at 9:30 pm.  Come out for the big night in New York City.  You deserve it.  Life is beautiful!
Get your tickets here and become part of the big ecosexy apple's literary scene. 

Cranac, Adam & Eve
Yours Truly is gifting herself with a Residency in Brooklyn.  St Andrews Plaza.  May 27-June 25.  In preparation for the big year of research as Fellow at U Conn, 2012-13.  For more info about that, see the Press Release.  Wish me well with this breakthrough project.  I will be sorting out things, looking for housing, car, other needs.  Seeing old friends, making new ones.  Participating in events, lectures, conferences, debates, parties.  Learning.  Experiencing.  

There are many apples in New York City, one more ecosexy than the other.  Cranac knew it. Can you see?  Connect with me.  We might explore together.  

Tantra Meal
Ecosex is jelling up also in Western Puerto Rico.  Tantra comes to Gaia's Temple on Playa Azul thanks to Allen McPhee and Laurie Handlers.  We are dancing with the waves, practicing sacred sex, and enjoying tantra meals.  More events in July.  A beloved local community.  Stay tuned!

Let me complete with two tips for online stores of ecosexual products that can make your sex life healthier and more fun.  Ecosex and Good Clean Love come well recommended by Tinamarie Bernard, legendary modern love muse. 

Remember: life is beautiful.  Expand your love and you'll feel it.  Love, the ecology of life, is the art of sharing the most compersive lover we have, third planet Gaia.  Love yourself in another today, and you'll do your part.  

Your attention is appreciated.  Thanks for reading.  We hope to bring offerings of your choosing.  You are loved.  Join us in what is accessible to you!

EcoSex Symposium - Portland, OR - June 29-July 1st - Information for Participants, Volunteers

For Symposium Program, Keynotes, Workshop Description, Registration, Donations, Donor's Perks

go to the Symposium Website


For Out-Of-Town Presenters:
If you don’t live in Portland, we will find you a clean, comfy, free place for you to stay among the community of organizers and volunteers who are organizing the Symposium. Call or email Henry Welch, our Presenter Host, with your particular accommodations needs.

We will pick you up from a train, plane, or bus and/or help you find a low cost parking spot for the Symposium weekend, Friday, July 29-Sunday, July 1st. If you do not wish to stay in a private home, we can help you identify local hostels, bed and breakfasts, and hotels in or near the N. Mississippi area that you can pay for yourself. Please contact Henry Welch with your transportation needs.

Marketing, Promotion, and Social Networking

We are counting on you, the presenters, to join us in spreading the word about the Symposium. Please create chats and posts on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, Meet Ups and other social networking sites. Maybe you want to make a video about your workshop and post it on YouTube as a teaser? Please put notices and postings about your presentation and the rest of the Symposium on your individual websites and newsletters. Send links to your websites to Audrey Brown, our Web Mistress. Please feel free to share your thoughts and ideas, and grow this budding new movement, enviro-strategy, and EcoSexual identity by writing blog posts to our website www.EcoSex.org. Pick up posters and postcards from Gabriella Cordova’s house: Lotus Heart Center at 4124 N. Mississippi or call Ethan Edwards to make arrangements to pick them up.

Fundraising and Sponsorships
We have created an online crowd funding campaign on IndieGoGo.com to create the funds for the keynote speakers and other basic costs such as venues, posters and postcards. Please consider donating $5-10 yourself before May 29th as this will increase our web traffic and help make the crowd funding campaign successful. Please direct your friends and supporters to this site (http://igg.me/p/93850?a=472232) before May 26th. Also, we have great sponsorship packages which you can see on our website. Feel free to cut and paste and send to people or businesses you think are likely sponsors. It is our goal to raise $8-10,000.00 to cover the costs of the Symposium. We are looking for a printing company to do our program and product sponsors to have their own booths
Volunteers Needed
We need volunteers. Please have your friends and associates connect with Teri Ciacchi, Volunteer Coordinator, to get involved. If you have a friend who would like to see your presentation for free, recruit them to be the onsite workshop door person for your presentation. We need help; as you can see from the list of organizers below, this is a small crew of people which needs to expand exponentially for the conference to be successful. Volunteer positions will be listed on the Volunteer tab on our website. Volunteer “perks” can include full conference packets (valued at $169) if volunteers can document they have done 5-10 hours of work weekly between now and July 2. Smaller work trades are available for on-site, i.e. registration booth shifts, presenter audio visual assistance & door shifts, and making food for organizing team members during the Symposium.
Call for Collaboration
On our website under the tab Sponsor & Collaborate is our vision of collaborations. Please encourage people you know to collaborate in congruence with this vision. Feel free to create your own collaborations.
