On a lesbian, feminist, and spiritual adventure, former sex worker Annie Sprinkle, her partner Beth, and their dog Butch take on the pleasures and politics of water from an ecosexual point of view. As they coast along in their E.A.R.T.H. Lab, they study “earth as mother” and “earth as lover” in order to create a more reciprocal and empathetic relationship with the natural world. It’s a true ecological journey for these adventurers as they speak with a wide range of people, from biologists and plant workers to artists and other experts.
