Nextfest 2019 presents SMUT NITE: Garden of Earthly Delights

  • The Roxy on Gateway 8529 Gateway Boulevard Northwest Edmonton, AB, T6E 6P3 Canada (map)

“We hold these truths to be self-evident; that we are all part of, not separate from, nature. Thus all sex is ecosex. I promise to love, honor and cherish you, Earth, until death brings us closer together forever.” - Ecosex Manifesto (Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stephens)

In this anthropocene on the brink of environmental collapse, how can humans be better lovers to the earth? How do we re-wild the sexual landscape to imagine all-natural futures of pleasure? How did Adam, Eve, and Steve start polyamory? What does post-apocalyptic kink wear look like? How do you make love to a lake? Be part of the bacchanalia that is Nextfest’s 12th (!) annual, infamous SMUT NITE to celebrate the cumming of a new era - that is, if the Earth is willing to take us back.
