Proceeds from the online sale of pornography are helping to subsidise VLK, a Slovak environmental association, the internet portal Topky.sk wrote, as reported by the SITA newswire. A Norwegian organisation, FFF, or Fuck for Forest, finances projects to support protection of nature and the environment by raising money via its erotic videos.

“Yes, it is true,” said Juraj Lukáč of VLK to Topky.sk, saying that FFF had given the Slovak association about €8,700 and they expect further contributions.

“We had a big discussion in the association before accepting the first contribution,” Lukáč told Topky.sk. He said he was not personally attracted to the practices of the Norwegian association but that pragmatic considerations made VLK accept the money.

“They are sending the money for a project of saving the forest near Čergov. There is a private natural reserve there and we are trying to buy forests in the vicinity,” Lukáč said, adding that 21 hectares of land are involved. Topky.sk wrote that FFF calls itself on its website an erotic, non-profit environmental organisation that seeks to draw attention to and collect money to help endangered nature by showing the beauty of lovemaking, nudity, and so forth. The webpage states that erotic scenes are often used to support all kinds of “stupid” ideas and advertise goods and asks, why not use it for a good thing? But Topky.sk also noted that the organisation is known for several scandalous incidents like when a FFF couple protested against devastation of rainforests by simulating intercourse in a Protestant church, directly in front of the altar.
