Can You Have Sex In Space?

Sex in space

1. Getting a boner in micro gravity is hard.

Gravity helps our blood flow to the lower parts of our body, so in space, blood rises to your head and chest, Anderson University physicist and astronomer John Millis, Ph.D., told BuzzFeed over email.In micro gravity, it would be difficult for enough blood to flow to the penis during an erection, he explains.

2. It won’t be easy to get a lady boner either.

Women have the same exact problem. When they’re aroused blood rushes to their genitals, causing the clitoris to swell and lubrication to secrete. Not so much in micro gravity, says Millis.

3. Vaginal wetness could be an issue.

“Vaginal wetness could be an issue as the fluid - like sweat and tears - will tend to pool at the location of secretion in the absence of gravity. This wouldn’t inhibit arousal necessarily, but it would be uncomfortable/unpleasant,”.

4. You’ll have a lower libido.

Testosterone increases your sex drive. But for some reason, male testosterone levels have been seen to fall during their time in space.
NASA is unsure why this occurs. But the astronauts’ testosterone levels did return to normal once they came back to Earth.

5. There’s no porno for American astronauts.

6. Sex will be tedious and tiring.

In micro gravity, our heart doesn’t have to pump blood so vigorously to the rest of our body, so it shrinks over time.
Our muscles become weaker (especially our legs) since we don’t use them as much to combat gravity. So our body becomes “lazier,”
This is a problem when you have sex, because your heart rate rapidly increases and you breathe more heavily. If you’re not used to this, your body will become tired very quickly

7. You might conceive a deformed alien baby.

Getting pregnant in space would be an interesting experiment, because we have no idea if it’s even possible.According to Millis, weightlessness could cause a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. 
And the high levels of radiation in space could cause cell deformation and mutation in the fetus.
It’s likely that the bone structure of the fetus would not form correctly in micro gravity, says Millis.
“If sex were successful, it is virtually certain that any resulting fetus would not survive the pregnancy,” he said.

8. Your sweat will be gross.

Sex is naturally hot and sweaty, especially as two bodies press against each other.
In micro gravity, sweat doesn’t drip down your body. Instead it clings to your skin and forms pools, Millis said. If you were engaging in some heavy, vigorous sex, then blobs of liquid would be flying all over the place.

9. Sex will be soooo awkward.

Astronauts would have to be properly anchored, not only to the space station itself, but also to each other. This makes the mechanics of the sex act difficult and probably somewhat awkward
