High Church Tree-Huggers

"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 . . .

" 'It feels like people are just waking up to the fact the planet is suffering under our uses of it,' says Rebecca Denk, business manager for the adult toy store Babeland. The U.S. company, which sells to Canadians via Babeland.com, just introduced an 'Eco-Sexy Kit' featuring a phthalate-free vibrator, soy massage candle, a natural lubricant with no animal-testing or derivatives, and condoms."

Read it all for even more lurid details. I've long regarded environmentalism as a kind of crude, atavistic religion so I guess the items described in this story aren't really marital aids, but worship aids for high church tree-huggers.
