Astronauts on a NASA mission in April say no love was launched during their time in outer space – and that sex is not on the agenda for their celestial missions.

Wow!!!!!! I didn't even think it could be done. :o

I wouldn't doubt the possibility of free fall coitus occurring but not likely that it would be news to publicly broadcast.

After all wasn't a former astronaut having an affair with another astronaut at one point? They didn't do a very good job of sweeping that whole debacle under the rug when the woman went nuts and started stalking her ex lover cross country while wearing adult diapers.

The assumption that because these professional military trained crew members are doing a job that they don't try to get their moon rocks off if given the opportunity is silly. Hell, regular service members have in the middle of the desert, aboard ship, on post, etc. Hundreds of men and women have been to space now so the odds are changing and if it hasn't it will

You can't tell me that the astronauts living in the ISS for months at a time aren't at the very least stroking the sausage every now and then.

Although in zero G, I bet cleaning up would be a mess.

I don't remember where I read it, but someone asked one of the lady astronauts who was on Mir for 9-12 months (or something) whether or not she ever had sex with any of the others on the station. In the interview, she sorta suggested she did.

Frankly, let's be honest: there are few things in life that you can do that are truly unique and interesting; someone else has probably done it before. For that matter, I can think of few more interesting places to screw than in space. It would be awesome no matter how cumbersome or bizarre.

It. Is. In. SPACE!!!

I would not pass up the opportunity. I would hope that, given the very few people who are given the privilege to even be in space at all, that at least one of them would not have passed on the chance either.

What no one is asking is this: who was the first astronaut to masturbate in space? No one may ever know, except that person who was actually first. It would make an interesting story, maybe. "Well, the other two guys where making history walking on the moon, and someone had to stay in the capsule and stuff, so I just took that 40 minutes to beat my walrus....ON THE MOON!"

It would be the very quintissential definition of epic.

I'd imagine with the exception of gravity newtons laws would still dictate. There is still friction and inertia on the pairs side. Unless they are tethered at a couple points to something in the shuttle they might be bouncing all over the place LOL

It's not possible we haven't done it, I mean look at the action-list from STS-47: (see items in bold)

Spacelab-JŚa joint NASA and National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) mission using a manned Spacelab moduleŚconducted microgravity investigations in materials and life sciences. The crew, consisting of the first Japanese astronaut to fly aboard the Shuttle, the first African-American woman to fly in space and, contrary to normal NASA policy, the first married couple to fly on the same space mission (Lee and Davis), was divided into red and blue teams for around the clock operations. Spacelab-J included 24 materials science and 20 life sciences experiments, of which 35 were sponsored by NASDA, 7 by NASA and 2 collaborative efforts.
Materials science investigations covered such fields as biotechnology, electronic materials, fluid dynamics and transport phenomena, glasses and ceramics, metals and alloys, and acceleration measurements. Life sciences included experiments on human health, cell separation and biology, developmental biology, animal and human physiology and behavior, space radiation, and biological rhythms. Test subjects included the crew, Japanese koi fish (carp), cultured animal and plant cells, chicken embryos, fruit flies, fungi and plant seeds, and frogs and frog eggs.

Totally disgusting. Yet very, very funny!

If anybody ever plans on having sex in space they should bring a bunch of plastic wrap along with some very absorbent material to keep liquids from interfering with the sensitive electronic equipment on board. Or make a sleeping bag for 2 kind of like in National Lampoon's Vacation.

Somewhat off topic, but what if you sweat in Space would it rise to the ceiling or never come out your glands?

Gonzo3333
Jul 9, 2010, 02:24 AM
Sweat would probably stick to your body because of surface tension and evaporate before it becomes a problem. Sudden movements associated with sex may dislodge it though. You make a pretty good point.

Things can't evaporate in space, can they?

I am pretty sure that in the controlled environment inside the ISS, Space Shuttle or Soyuz there is relative humidity. Otherwise the astronauts would slowly dry out kind of like a snail on a very hot day in the sun. All mentioned spacecraft probably have humidifiers and dehumidifiers to keep things comfortable for the crew. However, I am not an engineer so I am making an educated guess.

Anyway, I'm slightly worried about the fact that it is mostly other men that I see on these spaceships. I can't even remember the last hottie I saw in space.

Would Sigourney Weaver and Milla Jovovich count? Both of them usually travel with awful companions.
