I heard that the first time a woman was sent into the NASA space station the astronauts had sex. Is this another fairy tale?
Rather than being a fairy tale, I would
personally say that it seems far more likely to be simply a
somewhat nauseating concept of the unfortunately
under-educated male continually stereotyping women
as objects rather than as human beings with intelligence
committment, and a strong sense of duty and responsibility
where their jobs are concerned. WHY, for instance, due
only to the presence of a woman working in the company
of men, would there be even the most remote likelihood
of any type of sexual activity interfering with either professional
person's job & duties? Both women & men routinely manage
to work & function very successfully together in many diverse
& interesting job capacities. I DO however, want to wish you a
warm welcome to A2K, and hope that you enjoy it here.
I thought I heard this on the radio a while back. Was it a rumor?
Very interesting. I never heard that.
Hardly seems likely that sex would have occured in space thusfar. I suppose it is entirely possible but these people are monitored constantly by ground control. Everything they do is videotaped and they are attached to several medical sensors at pretty much all times.
I'd guess that would sort of kill the mood for me..
What you may have heard may be realted to this little bit of Internet folklore:
I hear ya Fishin. I wouldn't like an audiance myself, lol.
NO - no audience! But, seriously folks, if you could be private, would you not be absolutely busting to try having sex in weightlessness?
I will stick my neck out - I would love to!
I imagine 'twould be very interesting in terms of stuff like inertia, equal and opposite reactions and do on.
Oh dear - now I guess I hafta blush!
But think what all that NASA velcro would do to your fur there lil bunny one! Of course.. You might be into that...
Wadda you think I am!? A smegging angora?
Since the very beginning of the space program astronauts have been following the injunction of Socrates to:
How do you "know", Jjorge? Hmmmmmmmmm? LOL
I'm with dlowan, well, not WITH her, but I think it'd be fun to have sex beyond the tediousness of gravity. Then again, and I've thought about this some, it could get pretty out of control. I guess the two would work themselves up to the acrobatic stuff after trying more sedintary sex.
Hmmm - I guess you would need velcro to be sedentary in space....
Er - I think they might encourage a certain balloon blurting all its air out and flying crazily all around the room thing! Remember, while you have no weight in space - you still have mass and inertia!!!!
Does the spaceshuttle have a back seat?
Gives a whole new meaning to Meatloaf's "Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night, I can see paradise by the dashboard light" too.
