- Annie Sprinkle & Elizabeth Stephens

Annie Sprinkle was a NYC prostitute and porn star for twenty years, then morphed into an artist and sexologist.  She has passionately explored sexuality for over forty years, sharing her experiences through making her own unique brand of feminist sex films, writing books and articles, visual art making, creating theater performances, and teaching. Annie has consistently championed sex worker rights and health care and was one of the pivotal players of the Sex Positive Movement of the 1980's. She got her BFA at School of Visual Arts in NYC was the first porn star to earn a Ph.D.. She's a popular lecturer whose work is studied in many colleges and Universities.

 

For the past 12 years she has been collaborating on art projects with her partner, an artist and UCSC professor, Elizabeth Stephens. They are movers and shakers in the new "ecosex movement," committed to making environmentalism more sexy, fun and diverse. In 2013, Sprinkle proudly received the Artist/Activist/Scholar Award from Performance Studies International at Stanford, and was awarded the Acker Award for Excellence in the Avant Garde.  

 

In 2017 Annie's work will be part of Documenta 14 in the form of an exhibition and a series of eco-sex walking tours and a sidewalk sex clinic.
