Is Outer Space Sex Really That Complicated? Authentic NASA Toys and Replicas
If this is true, then future space colonists may be in for a major disappointment.

(MSNBC) Having sex in the weightlessness of outer space is the stuff of urban legends and romantic fantasy--but experts say that there would be definite downsides as well.

Spacesickness, for instance. And the difficulty of choreographing intimacy. And the potential for sweat and other bodily fluids to, um, get in the way. [...]

"Sex in space is not just a good idea, it's survival," said Vanna Bonta, a writer who blends romance with space travel and quantum physics in the novel "Flight."

The article later on goes to list several reasons why this event may be "underwhelming," and the list does not look pretty. Vanna Bonta has designed a "2suit" to deal with the problems of weightlessness know, but I am going to wager that honey mooners may opt for their birthday suit instead.

You can either visit the stars or watch them from afar.

But if you choose the former, you'll definitely get a better view.
