The Independent – With commercial space flights in the pipeline and financiers appealing for a couple to volunteer for a manned (and womanned) mission to Mars, it’s only going to be a matter of time before humans will want to do what we do best up in space.
But according to new research, getting down while we’re way up high could theoretically cause health problems for spacefaring lovers.
Geitmann told LiveScience.com that many neural disease, including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntingdon’s are all related to this ‘trafficking’.
Soooo if you have sex while in space, it could potentially lead to Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Huntingdon’s disease? Am I reading this correctly? Call me crazy but the juice just doesn’t seem worth the squeeze. And for some reason, all I can picture right now is something like inside out boy from Nickelodeon except it’d be with the vagina. Like it would flip inside out or something.
What I really don’t think is worth it is sitting in a fucking tin can for 16 months on a trip to Mars…with one other person. That’s almost 500 consecutive days with the same person and no alone time. Count me out. Potentially causing traffic or whatever in your body when you have sex, stuck with the same person for 16 months, can’t watch your sports teams play. I’m not seeing the appeal here.
And can you imagine the hassle of a commercial space flight? Commercial flying on earth is already a big enough pain in the ass. 100% chance they do a full blown cavity search before you hop on one of these. Can’t even people watch before taking off. That right there is enough to not go. Only thing that makes flying worthwhile.
