Enjoy an intimate and informal meeting with Annie Sprinkle, Ph.D Hear her tell stories of her radical sex evolution from prostitute/porn star to sexologist/artist! She has devoted the 35 years to researching and exploring sexuality, from the sacred to the profane, documenting and sharing her experiences through explicit films, photography, and sex workshops. For two decades she has toured with her controversial theater shows to enthusiastic audiences around the world.
Annie’s motto is “eroticize” everything, even breast cancer.” The first porn star to earn a Ph.D., Sprinkle is into nature fetishes and an avowed “ecosexual.” She’s shifting the metaphor from “Earth as mother” to “Earth as lover.” Currently her work is about love, relationships, aging and the place where ecology and sexology intersect, which she calls Sexecology. Today she is an out “ecosexual.”
