    good afternoon if you live in england, good everything else for the rest of our world. anyhow lol that said, I can unfortunatly inform you that i have relised today that i am now getting older and i suspected it when i filled in apps online and the min birth date gets higher and higher and my birth date year goes lower and lower but i am deffanatly sure today. why, because i am not giggling at this thought and subsequent thread to you on here.
    Would a mans orgazm in space feel any diferent than on the ground?? i ask this because i have heard urinating and number 2'ing is defanatly different and you have to get used to it because of the no gravity. but when a man ejaculates a eurphoric sensation rises up through his penis and his whole body, but without gravity surely you would still ejaculate BUT no gravity would i guess slow this down so it would last alot longer as a orgasm is made when the sperm passes through a certain bit or something i beleive, but as i was saying i guess this must happen but im not sure so im asking you biology fans. And now ive typed that i can tell you im going to make a cup of cocoa and read a newspaper for i am offically getting old because not once did i snigger at any of that i am seriously interested especially if what i heard on the brink tv show happens with hotels in space and stuff like that in the not to long and because there doing flights to space from next year I BET it will be a race to join the 400km high club(space station height). shame it'll only be celebirties and footballers who get the chance on the whole (because they earn loads of money!! im not jealous but really i think people like scientists and people who are actually developing our minds and tecnology and literally civilisation should get the 80000 a week some footbalers get. shocking. anyway the FAIR WAGES FOR CLEVER PEOPLE thread isnt on yet but mark my wor...lol, sorry. anyway please can someone answer my question if its even been tested,. i know a married couple went into space but were they allowed and if so did they discuss the diference in both women and mens feelings in no gravity?? thankyou

    The girls in space are all scientists and girls. Not only can they see any shortcomings and pitfalls. They will be telling you about them . On and on and on and on all through space. I would prefer a robot or a pet monkey.

    "as a orgasm is made when the sperm passes through a certain bit or something"
    Im not a biologist but I think this is not quite accurate, what you describe often coincides with orgasm, but imo is not by itself the cause of the orgasm.

    Well anything done unprotected in space will lead to death of a human in less than about six minutes or so (lichens do a lot better in this regard).

    Think what you are after is sex in low-gravity. Most of the differences have to do with what happens after you excrete urine, feces, or ejaculate. None get the gravity assist and are going to collect, or if they splash and don't stick to anything, separate into floating clumps. First and second male ejaculation convulsion probably forceful enough to become their own semen clumps unless there was a way to contain it, the remaining convulsions probably forming into a clump at the end of the penis. Wearing a condom would avoid the mess (just like on Earth).

    Always been somewhat entertained by the people wondering about two humans having sex in space or trying to engineer some bungy device to hold them together. Given peoples' vast ability to improvise unique places and positions to be intimate, I think it's the last thing we need to worry about. Eventually we'll have another chapter of the Kuma Sutra.

    space is pretty much a vacuum so i would advise against having sex in open space; you could die very quickly!

    Sex in space would be bad because they would have to take notes and collect data. Space is still relatively a new thing. Some married NASA astronauts have had sex in space already. I don't know where the data was published. I heard it somewhere on the NASA website on a search.

    From NASA, Jan Davis and Mark Lee are the only married couple that was on a space mission together and they aren't telling. NASA doesn't allow married couples on the same mission. Don't think USSR/Russia has had a couple in orbit either. Considering this is a science forum, we should be more precise than just saying "in space." Low gravity, micro-gravity are a lot more precise and relevant to the discussion.

    no gravity sex
    imagine the possibilities for positions ---anything beyond kamasutra?
    as/re conception: anyone remember when they took seeds to test germination, and plants up-----and, know how the experiments ended?

    Estimations to begin experimental trials have put costs far above that of the LHC for some anomalous reason.

    As opposed to having sex without any space? I.e a parking lot quicky in a mini cooper.

    long before long term space travel, it would seem wise to conceive, birth and raise a child or many many more in space

    See any potential problems?

    I'm not a gravitational biologist, but the human body is geared for Earth's.

    How do you compensate for not being on the Earth? With current technology, though, if we tried what you suggest I'm sure it would mean death for everyone involved.

    I think it needs to be said that inside the ISS although without gravity there is air pressure. Nobodies at risk here..
    Two people in a tight space could get up or down to all sorts of things we might best not talk about while the young impressionable's are at it enough a..? Just what astronauts do in the privacy of the sleep lockers. Is this why the air con system has scrubbers .. Umm.. sorry.

    I think for the foreseeable future, and given what we know about the long term negative effects of low gravity on humans, we'll probably depend on centripetal accelerations for any trips over a few months, or something constructed to provide acceleration if we colonize low-gravity planetoids.

    Apart from the obvious mechanical problems of sexual intercourse in zero-G, there have been warnings that any resulting pregnancy could potentially be dangerous, as we still do not know much about how it will be affected.

    Sex in space may be dangerous, study says | Technically Incorrect - CNET News

    What is this about "pure conjecture"?

    yeah a married a couple by the names of mark c lee and jan davies( i take it astronauts dont take their hsubands last name! now ive scrolled down a bit on this page i see that lynx_fox has just wrote the same thing!!! except in more detail so i'll leave the stage to them. thanks everyone for there contribution thoa. one thing i am still wondering is on a return fly by trip to mars i beleive planned for next few years or so they are going to have a married couple for that i have read somewhere, Do you think bookies would take bets on , as the trip is ,for a fly by wich i think is possible alot of sites think a touch down on mars is impossible in our lifetime but a fly by wouldnt use a hell of alot less fuel 500 approx days,evidence averaged on aload of diferent numbers given on other sites ranging from 300-800) Wether or not, and the odds for it, that the couple have intercourse and wich wouldbe absolutely amazing for humanity, conceive in space and 9 months(THIS IS THE ??? MARK WOULD IT BE 9 MONTHS WITH NO GRAVITY!!!) later have a wonderful space born,EXTRA TERRESTRIAL!!! as an extra terrestrial is defined as something not of this earth!! damm that kid will be famous!!

    I find it interesting, and that some Elastic Webbing and some Velcro could make it 'interesting' Some heat exchange might be a problem.. and that my name is... Mark Lee and I might know about some of this subject in that it is only a danger if you go getting 'rough'. Would you turn off the light ? and Yes that is my name.. but no, it is not me.. that went into space.. Is there enough privacy on the ISS to dare try this.. for science. I would have it said that conception in zero g would not be a issue.. just tricky. The birth process is a different subject.. and yes. When it happens that knew born would be famous as #1. ET.

    I have always wondered about lightbulbs in space ,since you wouldn't need the glass part. Or sound in space. Would it sound like it was in a distance because of the air that reaches you. Astronauts on the space station don't seem to notice any differences, but I think sensory sensations would be hightened in free space.

    Comparing plant reproduction to human reproduction is pushing the envelope of credibility beyond science into conjecture.
    PLOS ONE is financed by charging authors a publication fee.
    Do humans have heliotropic and geotropic cells?

    I was about to press the like button as it is a very good point, but the thought of the idea is a very big unlike!! lets hope our top minds have enough evidence once the inevitable happens because this isnt a question of if it is deffanaty a question of when. humans are developing so quick and i think in pure ONE WORD lol leymanns terms to some up evolution i have the answer, BOREDOM, we get bored with things increddibly quickly now, for 100's of years a ball tied to a cup was the highlight of a childs evening, now we GIVE playstation 1 and 2 away because we think there so boring and outdated although they were only a decade ago. my point being obviously is that once our tech develops enough to get to a stage where we have hotels in space and the first couple appear on jerry springer or jeremy kyle wanting fame because "they conceived in space" the techs in the lab will already be finding volunteers to go 9 months in space and give birth up there "to see if on generation long voyages to other planets/stars, if we can survive"

    ok, this wouldn't be the first time i've been accused of excess brevity.
    so
    taken from your link------I've underlined the points that point to conjecture.
    The changes in gravity make cell growth erratic and unstable. Yes, the team was only studying plant cells. But these operate on a system similar to the human, in so far as the process involves male to female sperm-cell (pollen) transfer.

    Geitmann admitted that scientific thinking hasn't yet gone all the way to determining precisely what might happen in intergalactic conception.

    She told the Daily Mail: "Intracellular transport processes are particularly sensitive to disturbance, with dramatic consequences for cell functioning. How these processes are affected by a change in gravity is poorly understood."

    Equally importantly, she said: "Researchers already knew humans, animals, and plants have evolved in response to Earth's gravity and they are able to sense it."

    The team's work, published in PLOS One, offers a pessimistic view of space's reproductive capabilities.

    Geitmann's fellow researcher, Dr. Youssef Chebli, told the Mail: "Our findings have implications for human health as similar effects are likely to occur in human cells such as neurons where long-distance intracellular transport is crucial."

    The fear is that disruption in cell growth caused by gravity shifts might lead to diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer's.
    If humans were developing like plants, the positioning of the baby in utero would determine much about it's development.
    But there is no---none---zero--nada evidence to support this insanity.

    Plos one is a fee based publication----if you got the coin, any poorly thought out insanity can get published.

    "The fear that...".................ain't exactly science-------
    their whole piece is conjecture

    Heliotropism and geotropism ain't evident in humans----------distally related to plants we are, but we ain't plants.

    Apparently heliotropism and geotropism are some buzz words that trigger some sort weird responses in you. What the hell do they have to do with the OP?

    common in plants
    so without those triggers(gravety and sunlight) plants get confused.

    Jumping from plants to humans is pure conjecture.
