The Evolution of the Eco Sexual

The Evolution of the Eco Sexual
As part of her Eco Sex campaign, Dr. Martha Tara Lee explores the evolution of the term Eco Sexual.

As part of my second Eco Sex campaign, I researched the term "eco sexual" and discovered how the term Eco Sexual has evolved over time.

According to the MacMillan dictionary online, the present day term of the Eco Sexual has evolved over time.

We started off with the Metrosexual. This is the heterosexual male who pays close attention to the grooming.

This was followed by the Retrosexual who is the classical male, who is unshaven, wears his T-shirt and jeans and his hands are covered with engine oil.

The Technosexual is the well-groomed man who is really into electronics, electrical devices.

Then along came the Ubersexual. This is the handsome male who has strong ethical principles. You may want to think of U2, the lead singer Bono.

Just as women may feel left out, there’s this other term called the Contrasexual, this is the confident woman who is happy with being single and who doesn’t put motherhood on her agenda.

Which led us to this gender-neutral term, the Ecosexual. This is the male or female who is leading the eco-sensitive lifestyle, who finds this way of living so vital that they are looking for a partner who feels just as equally, just as concerned about the environment as they are.

Ecosexuals are city dwellers, who are heavy into recycling. They take measures to reduce their carbon footprint. For instance, they are cycling to work, using low-energy light bulbs, taking holidays that don’t involve air travel. They may eat organic, locally-produced food, and are very conscious about environmentally friendly packaging.

Do you identify as an Excosexual?

My Eco Sex campaign’s message is about sustainable living by going green between the sheets and outside of the bedroom. The month brings attention to our relationship with our bodies. Besides addressing what you can do to feel good about yourself, it also highlights positive self-care habits, and includes being savvy about the purchase of personal care items including sex toys and lubricants.
