Astronauts have been warned against masturbating in space over fears female astronauts could get impregnated by stray fluids.
There are strict guidelines over “alone-time” onboard in zero gravity. Scientists have warned even the slightest rogue droplet could cause chaos on board.
Late night TV host Conan O’Brien waded into the uncomfortable topic while interviewing a NASA engineer, asking him if he had ever sent porn to the International Space Station.
“No, none of that,” the scientist, Smythe, said.
“Three female astronauts can be impregnated by the same man on the same session ... it finds its way,” the scientist continued.
Sex and masturbation in space is a logistical nightmare, with problems ranging from floating fluids to shrinking manhoods, according to US astronomer Dr. John Millis.
He compared sex in space to having intercourse while “skydiving”, but added that it was “not impossible.”
