Others recognize sex as a disturbing factor, but feel it is not too serious. In the old days, sailors made long voyages without women and still managed to perform their duties and bring the ship into port.

Wow, how could those guys go weeks, even months, without having any sex whatsoever? Hmmmm

In space, no one can hear you cream.

So... NASA said that the astronauts would not be having sex in space.

That doesn't answer the question of whether they did or not.

Is it possible that sex in space was declared top secret?

I mean, would NASA want to waste the opportunity?

I especially like the 1950s view on this:

"In our expedition to Mars, let our healthy young males take along some healthy young females to serve as their sexual partners. (Of course it would also help if they could operate a radio transmitter and take dictation.) These women would accompany them quite openly for this purpose."

PROSTITUTES IN SPAAAAAAAAACCCCCEEEEEEE!! (also they need to operate that radio thing and take dictation!)

Also I had a follow-up comment...

They're starting to do space tourism and such, I'm really surprised someone like Playboy or Hustler hasn't just decided to spend a bunch of money to send 3 people up and do a porno scene in space... But that would be the most watched video in history.

No mention of cleaning the spaceship or dispensing the food pills?

From the comments...funny

There's a song by Diana Gallagher on this very topic - and the moment I read the opening paragraph, it popped into my head. It's called "A Reconsideration of Anatomical Docking Maneuvers in a Zero-Gravity Environment" and it begins:
"Making love in a zero-g environment
May not produce the satisfaction we project
The proposed erotic possibilities
Deny Newton's laws of motion
And how they will affect our
Romantic inclinations
In space stations..."

I know they've done Girls Gone Wild in the Vomit Comet before, that's a simulated zero G environment. I have to figure they've done full porn there, I'm at work so I can't exactly go searching for that right now.

I'm sure none of the Astronauts/Cosmonauts ever rubbed one out in orbit.

Did anyone ever figure out what that stuff floating around Glenn's capsule was? Just saying...

Most watched, maybe, but not the most profitable. It'd leak out to the Internet in 10 seconds flat.

1992? Soon-to-be-President Clinton was years away from redefining certain activities as not sex. I guess a beej was still off limits then.

The shuttle with two small decks and a crew of 7 would offer no privacy, but STS-47 with the married couple was a Spacelab mission with a pressurized module in the cargo bay staffed 24/7 by the crew in two shifts. If a married couple worked on the same shift, then when they were off, half the crew would be in Spacelab and it might be possible for two people to be alone on the flight deck or mid-deck. I kind of doubt anything happened, though.

I'm surprised the Russians haven't realized they could get horny Americans to fund their space program for years with just one rocket-load of porn stars. ISS could stand for so many things.

I'd like to think that the Astronaut Corps wouldn't narc out two of their own if they decide to engage in
some extracurricular docking maneuvers in the spacelab, ifyaknowwhatImean.

The relativistic motions of a couple engaged in copulation could cause calamitous collisions with the cabin's ceiling or other fixtures; best would be a tether or one person lashed to the deck/wall/whatever. Even when under forward motion, the inertial disturbance could cause the craft to deviate from its programmed course, requiring expenditure of even more fuel to achieve orbital insertion.

Whatever.
