Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle

Beth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle have been creating multi-media art projects about love, sex, and queerness together for 20 years. Annie was a sex worker from 1973 to 1995, and morphed into a feminist performance artist and sex educator. Beth was a sculptor and installation artist and became a University art professor.

She’s taught at University of California Santa Cruz for 27 years. These days the duo make environmental films through an ecosexual gaze, they produce symposiums, do theater and performance artivism. Their Ecosex Manifesto launched the Ecosex Movement.

They are making a new film about fire for which they got a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2021. A new book, Assuming the Ecosexual Position—the Earth as Lover (University of Minnesota Press) chronicles their epic love story and art/life adventures.
