Apparently, having sex with plants can save the environment. At least, that's what some people believe.

According to Vice, ecosexuals believe that they can save the world by marrying Earth.

Although the term "ecosexuality" covers a wide range of topics. Amanda Morgan of the University of Nevada, said it can range from utilizing sustainable sex items to skinny dipping and naked hiking to folks who 'roll around in the earth having an orgasm covered in potting soil.'

"There are people who fuck trees, or masturbate under a waterfall," Morgan said.

Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stevens, ecosexual activists, have even issued an online "ecosex manifesto" and produced films and plays about the topic.

They define themselves as "polymorphous and pollen-amorous," a pun that pun fans will undoubtedly like.

And it looks that waterfall masturbation is quite popular - during the last decade, there has been a significant increase in people identifying as ecosexual. Sprinkle and Stevens, in fact, told Outside magazine that they tallied around 100,000 cases.

"We will save the mountains, waters and skies by any means necessary," they wrote in the manifesto. "Especially through love, joy and our powers of seduction," they added.

An online tabloid claimed that Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens are entertainers and self-described "ecosexuals" from the United States. They married the Earth in front of nearly 300 people in the woods of Santa Cruz, California, in 2008.

It was the fourth year of the "Love Art Laboratory" at that time. The couple also came out as ecosexuals that year.

"The Earth is our lover. We are madly, passionately, and fiercely in love," states their manifesto.

"[To] create a more mutual and sustainable relationship with the Earth, we collaborate with nature," the manifesto added.

According to the manifesto, ecosexuals should hug trees without shame, rub the dirt with their feet, and communicate erotically to plants.

Annie and Beth met while attending Rutgers University and married in San Francisco in 2003.

In an opulent ceremony, 33 other couples, both LGBT and straight, joined them in expressing their love for one another.

Their book, "Assuming the Ecosexual Position: The Earth As Lover," said they found out they could use the wedding ceremony as a tool to engage further political debate, develop community, and generate love.

They began performing wedding performances as part of their "Love Art Laboratory" series in 2004, bawdy and colorful weddings that included hours-long kissing sessions, stripteases, and paddle spanking.

Beth told CNN that they are working hard to influence people's perceptions of the Earth.

She went on to say that they want people to perceive the Earth as a source of joy and health rather than just a resource.

After the project ended in 2011, Annie and Beth continued to perform, marrying coal in Spain and soil in Austria, to mention a few.

The weddings are no longer organized by the couple, but by other ecosexuals or campaigners. They'll be accompanying artist Ewelina Jarosz during a wedding to the brine shrimp of Utah's Great Salt Lake in September.

[Representational image] KERNVILLE, CA - JULY 25: A giant sequoia tree dwarfs the surrounding forest along the Trail of the 100 Giants which is threatened by the out-of-control McNally Fire July 25, 2002 in the Sequoia National Monument north of Kernville, California. The McNally wildfire has grown to more than 50,000 acres and is threatening to spread to the rare giant sequoia trees. Sequoia trees are known as the largest living things on earth, many of which are more than 1,000 years old, and occur only in this southern Sierra Nevada region. Although sequoia trees use fire to reproduce, a fire that is too hot could weaken the enormous trees' ability to stand. David McNew/Getty Images
