Has NASA or the Russians ever conducted a study about sex in space?

I reckon that one would reach an anti-climax, considering that action is reaction.

While the fantasy of sex in space might be appealing, the reality of a bunch of bodily fluids floating around would probably not be.

I recall watching a TV show about this topic once. It may have been the Discovery Channel but I am not sure.<br /><br />In any case, it seems that the Russians went as far as to hire some porn actors to attempt sex in microgravity. They found out that without gravity to anchor them down, the couple had troubles staying together. When you think about it, taking a flight on the "Vomit Comet" and simply trying to hold on to another person would probably occupy all your attention, forget about doing much else.<br /><br />Even if a couple physically finds a way to "couple" in zero gravity, I don't think I'd want it to happen. Astronauts already suffer from bone degradation when they spend time in zero g. And then there is the matter of cosmic radiation. I'd hate to have a couple conceive some mutant with extremely brittle bones and no hemoglobin, or some weird stuff like that.<br />

^^^LOL.. You could always tie the woman down doggy style and the guy could grab on for dear life to her hips... Other than that it seems like to much work for most peoples taste..

Well, there goes my vision of a good weekend. Hey, what about bungee cords. That would keep things together!

Would zero G affect the ease with which conception occurs? Could there be a key to preventing bone loss in such an experiment? Could the act of sex, which is noted as one of the best forms of exercise for both mind and body, affect the mental state of astronauts in a positive productive capacity, as well as overall mental health?<br /><br /> Sex has a way of waking up alot of primal elements in our bodies. It's affects are still not entirely known.<br /><br /><br /> Btw, to get around the bouncing away effect, just do it in a smaller area. That way both can do some work, though very little effort in zero G. To get around fluids floating around, perhaps a shared wrap that either traps or soaks up the fluids, to later be removed. This same wrap could also provide the elasticity for the "bungie" effect to assist in the act. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <em>"<font color="#333399">An organism at war with itself is a doomed organism." - Carl Sagan</font></em> </div>
