Sex will save our planet! says  author of new book

by Tinamarie Bernard

At first glance, sex and the environment don’t make obvious bedfellows. How can the answer to our environmental problems – global warming, access to fresh water, ecological sustainability, and the use of fossil fuels, etc – possibly be found in the satin sheets of lovers? According to a growing number of greenies, free love may just save the planet. 

Gaia and the New Politics of Love: Notes for a Poly Planet
In her newest book, Gaia: The New Politics of Love (North Atlantic Books), author Serena Anderlini-D’Onofrio, attempts to lay the groundwork for this premise. And if you can get past any initial squeamishness, there is value in her message: Specifically, behaviors typical between lovers in open-relationships, also known as polyamory, may indeed be the secret to protecting Mother Earth from her errant, environmentally challenged children. That would be most of us.
