Meet The Erotic Eco-Porn Activists, Bonking To Save The Earth [VIDEO]

‘Copulation for conservation’ is the motto of F*ck For Forest who believe porn can save the planet.

For those who enjoy porn and want to support a cause that aptly combines sexual liberation and environmentalism, F*ck For Forest (FFF) may just be the project for you. The Berlin-based nonprofit ecological organization features hairy, dreadlocked, tattooed-ridden, eco-loving hippies fornicating in forests and parks all in the name of saving Mother Earth.

Founded in Norway in 2004, FFF raises funds for the planet by charging subscribers a membership fee ($15 a month) to watch their published, explicit homemade porn videos and pictures. Unlike regular porn, the money from FFF is then donated to charity for the environment.

Whether the group is really “liberating sexuality” as it claims on its site is debatable, but one thing is certain, its self-funding efforts have been quite successful and the group is serious about its work.  FFF raked in over $100,000 in its first year of existence through paid memberships sales and has collected an estimated $500,000 in funds to date.  Not bad for a bunch of forest f@#kers!

For the skeptics, the site offers an impressive list of worthwhile ecological projects mostly based in South America as well as a front-page warning about what you’re likely to encounter by joining up:

“[The site] contains natural nudity, including graphic sexual and erotic images and sexually explicit language.  It also contains information about how some humans exploit our planet...some people in our world still finds sex offensive and dangerous. If you are underage or get offended by love or truth, you should exit this site now,” the site states.

The organization got its start after receiving seed funding from the Norwegian government in 2004. However, it was soon cut off after its “sexual acts” came to light.  FFF became infamous when two of its members had sex on stage during a music festival, resulting in legal action and the issuance of fines.  During the hearing, one member dropped his pants in court, which the group later described as “a short moment of love between him and the media.”

FFF subsequently moved to Berlin but controversy followed.  In 2011, FFF members simulated sex in the Oslo Cathedral during mass, sparking public outrage and condemnation from the church. The performers were fined thousands of dollars for indecent behavior and public indecency.

As a result of such bad publicity, the group has had trouble distributing their money.  The NorwegianRainforest Foundation Fund refused to accept funding on the grounds that they saw no connection between FFF’s work and the environment.  Similarly, Holland’s World Wide Funddeclined the group’s donations because they did not want to be affiliated with what they considered unorthodox methods, Vice reported.

FFF’s latest crusades include a campaign concert aimed at freeing Russian feminist group, Pussy Riot and a naked visit to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva demanding the right to be naked.  FFF also works with indigenous communities in South America.  Last year, the feature-film documentary Fuck For Forest was released, centered on the group’s scandalous environmental pursuits, sexuality, lifestyle and culture.

Polish filmmaker Michał Marczak followed the group to the Amazon where FFF attempted to work with indigenous communities in Costa Rica and the Brazilian Amazon spreading the message: ‘Have sex, save the world.’ However, locals refused to take their money calling them child rapists and liars, representing a "paradoxical clash of cultures where the side commonly regarded as developed is shown as more savage than the culture they’re trying to help," Rooms Magazine reported

The film also features footage of the group humping in front of an audience in a Berlin basement, convincing audience members to join in to make one happy, hippy orgy.
