"Green-washing" the bedroom

Get it up by greening it up! Greenpeace is sexing up the carbon reduction movement:

You've heard of green cars, green tourism and green weddings. Now Canadians should ready themselves for green sex.

For those who like to make love to the soundtrack of the global warming documentary An Inconvenient Truth, Greenpeace has released a list of strategies for "getting it on for the good of the planet," suggesting "you can be a bomb in bed without nuking the planet." TreeHugger, an online magazine edited by Ontario's Michael Graham Richard, has just published a guide on "how to green your sex life." The famed adult store Good Vibrations announced last week they would no longer sell sex toys containing phthalates, controversial chemical plasticizers believed by some to be hazardous to humans and the environment alike.

[..] Other ways of "greenwashing" the bedroom, as outlined by TreeHugger and Greenpeace, include turning out the lights, not buying PVC or vinyl accoutrements, ensuring S&M paddles are made from sustainably harvested timber, using organic massage oils, showering together, using bamboo bed sheets (they come from a rapidly renewable resource and are said to be "super sexy"), and wearing lingerie made with renewable fibres such as hemp (Enamore), bamboo (Butta) and other organic goodness (GreenKnickers, Buenostyle, Peau Ethique).

Gordon notes there's even an eco-friendly adult website dedicated to naked vegetarians, appropriately called Veg Porn.

Camille Labchuk, speaking on behalf of the Green Party of Canada, gives the movement two green thumbs-up.
Ya man, Go green. Go naked

..a windmill powered pocket rocket?

Lots of things the sistahs' would give up for the green, but their battery operated boyfriends wouldn't be one of them.

I don't understand why greenie's are not heavily promoting the wearing of silk - its even more natural than hemp.

Personally, I can't wait for the greenies to start promoting their own brand of spermicides and contraceptives.

I know in some countries they use crocodile or camel dung dipped in honey as a contraceptive. I don't know about the rest of you gals out there, but I just couldn't see putting something like that near my moccasin.

Of course if you did, there wouldn't be too many men that would want to go near you.

There will be no need for condoms , safe sex was yesteryear's worry.The tree-hugging, leaf-eating new puritans will ban sex declaring the heat of it is a major cause of global warming.

It will still happen but only in places like the cbc lounges, where the propogandist machine are exempt from the laws of the land.
