Beth Stephens, Ph.D. has been a filmmaker, performance artist, activist and educator for three decades. Stephens is the Founding Director of E.A.R.T.H. Lab at UC Santa Cruz where she is the Department Chair and Professor of Art.

Annie Sprinkle has been creating multi-media projects about sexuality for four decades. She was the first adult film star to earn a Ph.D. She bridged into art and toured her one-woman theater pieces to many countries. Her new book, she co-authored with Beth Stephens, Explorer’s Guide to Planet Orgasm—For Every Body, is all about orgasm and only orgasm.
Together Stephens and Sprinkle are founders of the “ecosex movement” where they aim to make the environmental movement more sexy, fun and diverse. They were official Documenta 14 artists (2017) where their new film, “Water Makes Us Wet—An Ecosexual Adventure” premiered, plus they had visual art exhibit and gave Ecosex Walking Tours. Currently they’re completing a book about their work, “Assuming the Ecosexual Position” for University of Minnesota Press.
