Astronauts Confirm: No Sex In Space
Tue, 29 Jun '10

"We're ... Professionals" Said STS-131 Commander
Space Shuttle Discovery commander Alan Poindexter was asked during a recent visit to Tokyo what would happen if astronauts got ... intimate during a mission.

"We're a group of professionals," Poindexter reportedly answered with a serious face. "We treat each other with respect and we have a great working relationship. Personal relationships are not … an issue. We don't have them and we won't."

Poindexter recently commanded the two week STS-131 mission to re-supply ISS. The crew included the first Japanese mother to fly in space. The international news service AFP reports that Poindexter and the rest of the STS-131 crew were in Japan to talk about the mission.

The mission did mark the first time that there were four women aboard ISS at one time.

Why would there be any floating semen? Emit it any of the right places & it's not going to leak out under gravity.

I find it impossible to believe that it hasn't already been a planned and logged experiment.
If we (H.B's) are going to move off this planet, we need to know if conception is in any way affected by a lack of or very small gravity.
