I love the earth. I like to recycle and I am all for going green. When I become financially stable (and actually have a job) I will buy a hybrid car. But seriously, Treehugger.com has gone too far. This morning, MSN displayed an article about going green with your sex life. I was curious so I read the article. There were so many ideas that were way out there, and I spotted several spelling and grammar mistakes. When I checked the article before writing this post, the mistakes were corrected. But I’m smarter than the average bear, so I found the original article from the treehugger website, and it still had the errors. I love the net! I liked the alternatives for personal grooming, and the links to get eco-friendly sex toys. Yeah, I didn’t know they existed either. Besides the fact that the author has no idea how to use the spellcheck feature, he actually thinks unprotected sex is better for the environment.
If you have a steady partner and you’ve both been tested for STDs, the pill is an option that can cut out the condom waste. Be aware that there are rising concerns about the hormones from birth control pills ending up in waterways and having serious effects on wildlife, both from pills flushed down the toilet, and from women’s urine.
Oh yes, he did just say that. But wait, it gets better…
Of course the biggest ecological impact resulting from sex is a baby. Human population is arguably the most threatening force on Earth, and with human population expected to reach 8.3 billion by 2030, reproducing is perhaps the largest impact any of us have.
I’m confused. Should I not pee if I’m on the pill, and if I am dating someone exclusively, we don’t have to use condoms, right? Unbelievable. This is the most unreliable and unrealistic advice that I have ever heard. Listen, keep using condoms, don’t flush them when you’re done and stay on the pill until you’re ready to have kids.
