Last year while living in Berlin, i was leaving a rap show with a few friends when one suggested we stop by this squat/punk bar around the corner. For those who aren’t familiar, in Europe when a building is empty, young people tend to inhabit them and turn them into home / community center / bars where all kinds of lively actions can be organized and take place. They support themselves by throwing shows/events and selling cheap drinks while simultaneously supporting the music and community action scenes.
So it’s just after 3 A.M. and we’re knocking on the door of this dark and seedy building which if you didn’t know beforehand, you would never be able to surmise what was happening inside. On a side note, I later came back and played an amazing show in the basement of this house where i was paid in vodka and had to give my strawberry emblazoned belt to the promoter. But tonight was just a normal low key “bar” night where you could hear anything from The Smiths to Wu-tang to Gabber. There’s always a lot of dogs and people dance no matter what. It’s really dark and smoky and we’re sitting on a couch in the corner rolling a spliff and discussing the hilarious fad of gay men who dress like fascists and occasionally scare the shit out of you in a train station on the late night. I’m a little distracted by these 3 people sitting across the room on another couch, 2 girls and one guy. The girls are dreads and are wearing these kind of raggy, fancy old dresses reminiscent of prostitutes in Deadwood, and the guy…well he wasn’t wearing a robe but just kind of looked “cultish.” That’s the only way i could explain it. Like he probably had a van with a bed in it and was wooing these girls with some unbelievable lie that he cultivated out of crappy anime and the zodiac, zeroing in on their daddy issues and hippie freedom…cause they were all over him. They definitely stood out in a room full of black cats, every once in a while the girls would get up and talk to somebody and hand them a card. Tipsy and extremely intrigued, I was burning for one of those fucking cards but didn’t want to be too obvious about it. So I sipped my huge warmish beer and waited for my opening.
I noticed they were getting up to leave so I walked across to the bar for another beer. As she passed by one of the girls nonchalantly handed me a card. I was trying to be cool and read what it said but it was too dark. When I finally found a frikkin candle, to my extreme amusement, it said, “FuckForForest.com activist-eco-porn.” I knew it was something special …i just knew it! So of course when i get home, before my shoes are even off, I’m looking at the website thinking yeeeeeeah fuuuuucking right, “all you girls have to do is fuck me and be my sex slaves and like… we’ll save the fucking planet and dolphins!!” What a sham…

Each year, huge areas of rain forest are systematically cut down. Invaluable animal and plant life is being decimated to make way for commercial interests.

FFF is a non-profit erotic ecological project made by concerned humans who wish to protect nature and liberate life. We collect money to protect nature through exploring and liberating the power of sex and nudity. We know a lot of people are interested in sex, including us. With FFF you can donate money for protection of nature and get access to the sexual nature of open-minded people. We want to have fun with sex, show natural people and collect money for protecting nature. We think it is time to pay respect, and give nature some LOVE back!

I still didn’t believe it. I watched some of the videos and laughed at their pseudo-sexy silly accents while saying,”the more times I put this dildo in my pussy, the more rain forest we can save.” Apparently they were Norwegian, which would account for them standing out in a room full of German punks, like a bear in a popsicle factory. My mind was quickly changed after a few moments of research when I was excited to learn that while crazy, yes, these people were definitely for real and true to their cause…and Rockstars! They first came in to the media spotlight by fucking on stage at the Quart festival in Norway.

Which eventually led them to court where this happened and they got into more trouble…

Yes, Tommy+Leona, the modern day hippy naked Sid+Nancy. All Hoffmanesque stunts aside, these guys are trigger finger serious and do some amazing things with the money they generate. They volunteered in Ecuador with the seeds dream project, and bought 60 hectares of land in Costa Rica which they turned into the Wild Climax Refuge.
ALL THROUGH INTERNET PORN! Amazing!

I saw them a few more times before I left Berlin, at the Fusion festival and at a demonstration on May Day, as always…spreading the good word and sexual freedom. I told a half naked Leona that I love what they do. In response she grabbed my crotch and said that I should send them some pictures of my peen.
It’s nice to know they are out there raising money, spreading awareness and fucking. They are always accepting donations and naked pictures for their website, and they have some pretty awesome shirts for sale. So stop by and show them some love.
