Perhaps a new star trek series will result. They can call it "Star Trek: OBG/YN" and send them on a 9 month mission to explore new frontiers and to go where no man has gone before. Seven of nine can be the captain.

VERY funny. And not far off the mark the way things work on this planet.

I know this is off topic (we'll get back to sex right after this) but won't mining the asteroids turn the solar system into a giant shredder for the next umpteen million years?
I seem to recall that they shephard the gas giants.

Terraforming, colonization, planetary and lunar mining maybe, but asteroid mining? Wait till the "enviromentalists" find out about that one!

OK, now back to the regular scheduled programming....

'Messy' is the first word that comes to mind... a visual thought however...

Sounds like that movie Supernova. That ship was the Love Boat.

I would agree that zero gravity sex would only be common during these early days of colonization. Long term spaceflight is practically impossible to survive without some form of artificial gravity.

I think that it would be messy, and very tiring in my opinion, it would just be awkward and difficult.

OK! OK!

Here's the poop.

The White House and the House of Representatives lead by the ersatz doctor have banned sex in space for Democrats Velcro or not.

It will unnecessary to forbid Republicans from having sex but not for the reason that they will publicly claim namely, that they always obey the law.

It is well known by the American Academy of Science that High ranking members of the Republican Party are incapable of coitus. Several think tanks are working furiously on a medical solution and the concomitant psychological conditioning required for adjustment to this new ability, should experiments be successful. If modern medicine can help leading Republicans to even contemplate sex the Party hopes past outrages and absolute confusion such as that displayed publicly by leading Republicans when President Clinton was found to have this ability…can be avoided.

“Hope springs eternal…”

I am all for sex in space!! I'll book a ticket and a velcro belt! Honestly, sex is fun anywhere and everywhere, space would just waaaay add to the thrill. I hope they get it done and ready soon though....I am getting old! 15 more years or so and there better be viagra vendors in space!

The possible problems with reproduction include fetal development, the proper formation of neural connections - and never mind the difficulty of actual fertilization in zero-G.

Any ideas?

If it's the gravity that makes it difficult then there is no problem actually, because it's not hard to make artificial gravity.
It's just to make something like this and spin it:

Imagine how much energy a person must use just to have sex, and it would probably be boring..

Velchro?? You mean all this time i could have......never mind.

I think its a wonderful idea. I have a question. If someone cant get an erection on earth, would they get one in outer space since everything just kind of floats???
I mean, like the flag on the moon??? Just curious. I'd like to take my husband on a vacation somewhere.

Hmm I think they'll have to make a special pill for that...

"If locked in orbital intercourse for more than four hours seek immediate medical attention."

It would be weird. i'd be floating around, smacking into random walls while spinning in unholy directions inside a plastic jar. It would be like trying to do it inside a cement truck.

Let me be a test subject!
I will help humanity while having sex in zero gravity! My two favorite hobbies in one....

Like the moon flag! *laffs*

Taken from the original article:

Although zero-G could be a boon for saggy body parts, Bonta said males might notice a "slight decrease" in penis size due to the lower blood pressure that humans experience in microgravity.


Im sure thats not going to help those men who are a tad paranoid or who have problems to begin with... or maybe it will be like reverse psychology... I can see it now... Viagra ++ for the man who wants 0G Erections!

Why?

Space travel is almost a reality, as is space industry like mining. People will want to enjoy the normal things of life in space and to procreate on extended journeys.

There are real issues with the physical act of sex, and with the biology of insemination and fetal development. The physical development of infants and children likely is a concern as well.

yup. There is little doubt what the tenants of the first orbital hotel will have on their minds when they get to their rooms. Im sure even the passengers flying alone will be curious...

And I really dont think pregnancy is going to be an issue. During the next 50 years we can probably only expect scientific, mining, or military missions to Mars. I do not expect any manned missions beyond Mars, except the asteroids, in our lifetimes.

Pregnancy during these early years will likely be prohibited. Too much unecessary complexity to support such an event, and I dont think anyone would risk their career and possibly their lives, their shipmates lives, and the life of their child with carelessness.

Humans can survive 9months in zero gravity with severe physical degredation. A prego woman probably couldn't even survive the extra demands on her physiology. I expect the first pregnancy in space could take place en route to a Jovian hotel or an equivalent distant destination. By the time we are that this level of technology, I do not question our vessels will have artificial gravity by whatever means.

one thing that just occurred to me with all this sex in space talk... will the first hotel windows have curtains?

Ive said this once and Ill gladly say it again. Civilians are not responsible for damaging our planet. Its the government's fault that the vast majority of the population arent using electricity, hydrogen, or ethanol to power our vehicles.

Its the US government's fault for using and testing nukes.

Ocean polution is primarily caused by indurstrial plants. They say your not supposed to eat fish more than twice a week because of polution. Yet fish are the leanest meat you can eat.

Rain forest destruction is definately the worst thing we have done to our planet.

Apparently, the "Black Government" uses fusion reactors that u se deuterium (heavy water). With the use of such insanely efficent energy, extraction of metals from the earth would be very cheap (unless they decide to jip us). This would probably eliminate the use of wood for building houses. Ive also read that anti-gravity/warp technology is in human hands. This would eliminate the need for fosil fuels. So like I said its the governments fault that we are still using oil.

But as far as I see it. The damage weve done to our planet is of most damage to ourselves. We couldnt possibly casue a large enough explosion to destroy the earth and prevent all the debris from re-collecting, causing a 2nd earth. We can leave that up to our Sun, 4 billion years from now.

Well, I did go way way off topic but I will repost this text in another thread. I guess its because im drinking scotch!

Seriously, we aren't responsible about sex on our own planet as it is (my opinion)but (per one of the people in the article) need to do this/know this for future survival.

Heck - I'll flat out say it - if we have destroyed our own planet to the point this is an issue of future survival, I say we have no business in space period. This is insane. How full of ourselves are we?

Let's run rampant and destroy the planet we were given as long as just in time we find a way to spread our destructive nature throughout the universe?


I don't see it that way. I mean, the way that you're saying it is that we should just give up after the Earth has had it. It's natural instinct for life to survive and to expand if possible. Life will find a way...Seriously, if we have the technology, or will in the very near future, to expand in a direction outside of this Earth, then why not? That's like having regular cable on your television, and you can automatically have tvo if you just find the controller. If it's there, why not try?
