If I remember correctly, the plot had a male astronaut hitting on a female, and finding that weightless cavorting was not so great. I have a sneaking suspicion some of the Gemini astronauts tried it, too. Apollo, with a third wheel around, would've been tougher. Reply Adam on April 15, 2010 at 2:40 am I used to think that weightless sex would be awesome but I imagine it'd be a lot more work without gravity's assistance . Reply nerdra on October 24, 2010 at 5:30 am Sex-against-a-wall would certainly be made easier–though in a weightless environment, I guess it would be more or less just like sex-on-the-floor… only with the added trouble of floating away. Reply nom on July 3, 2013 at 12:58 am so the russians actually tested this scientifically, and what they found was: Error: equipment malfunction, lack of ‘hydraulic pressure’ due to the lack of GRAVITY! Reply Miha on April 14, 2010 at 11:33 pm I thought about this a lot and thought that I was the only one. Well, apparently not 😉 Reply Jamwes on April 15, 2010 at 7:47 am There has been only one time in which a married couple was on a shuttle together. Some do assume they "did it" while up there. Reply Britny on April 15, 2010 at 10:05 am You're definitely my favorite person ever at the moment. Reply Niall on April 15, 2010 at 11:48 am these comics are great, they consistently make me laugh out loud. i hope you get paid for this Reply Adam on April 15, 2010 at 12:04 pm I'm working on the "getting paid" part. Reply KateMonster on April 15, 2010 at 7:12 pm Maybe it's just me, but I would buy a shirt with the bug on it 😀 Reply Chief M on April 15, 2010 at 4:28 pm Titan, a 1979 science fiction novel by John Varley begins with the mission commander Cirroco Jones and the engineer, Bill, engaged in a game called 'No hands'. One can assume the hard dock was the completion of the exercise. Reply Kasey on April 15, 2010 at 7:32 pm Now that I think about it, I do care more about what sex is like up there than some random dude walking on another planet.

Reply Robin on April 24, 2010 at 5:41 pm I'm working on the "getting paid" part. Reply Zaphod on May 4, 2010 at 9:02 pm Wow. I was just researching this entire issue about the time this comic was put up. NASA's official statement is that there has been no sex in space. Despite the fact that they often send married couples up together. While I can't find the source anymore, they have copped to masturbating astronauts (good name for a band) Reply Erm... on May 25, 2010 at 4:58 am While the thought of sex in space is intriguing, the thought of masturbating astronauts grosses me out. I mean, we've all seen what happens to liquids let loose in zero gravity.. I really didn't want to think about the end result of male masturbation in zero gravity. Thanks, Zaphod (Beeblebrox?!). Reply Mister Obvious on June 10, 2010 at 6:07 am You blood pressure in space isn't high enough to get an erection. Reply Ty on June 17, 2010 at 12:57 am off topic… but somehow I first read the title of this comic as "eye sockets in flight"… Reply Blueberries on July 13, 2010 at 2:44 pm Third panel – 'shag! Shag for science!" Perfection 😀 Reply Sonic on August 6, 2010 at 9:55 am "Manned Mission" ? we need a "Womanned mission"! Reply NeonF1sh on January 21, 2011 at 5:47 pm Let's hope it would take place INSIDE the spaceship… I'm pretty sure that if they tried it in outer space, the dude would blow his d*ck off. O_O; Reply ThatGirlFromRussia on February 26, 2011 at 10:21 am Not to mention the fact that he wouldn't be able to breathe… Reply mynameisverybad on November 24, 2011 at 4:28 pm Bah what is not being able to breathe compared to losing your d*ck… Reply MILLIPEDE on April 18, 2011 at 11:00 pm What happens when you finish? It just like floats around? Reply haydenelrics on August 2, 2011 at 6:27 am …. afternoon delight! My motto’s always been when its right its right.. Haven’t heard that song in a while! Reply AOverlord on November 15, 2011 at 12:01 am “Shag for science” just made my list of favorite quotes. Reply Some Random Loser on January 16, 2012 at 8:49 am Mine as well. Reply Courtney on July 30, 2014 at 3:26 pm I just scrolled through every single comic up to this point because I found this and had to post it, because this comic was the first thing I thought of –http://www.buzzfeed.com/richardhjames/i-for-one-welcome-our-new-sex-lizard-overlords Reply SchAlternate on December 28, 2014 at 2:51 am Sadly, they probably wouldn’t be able to do much since the low pressure of outer space would make it difficult for one to have a boner to begin with. Not to mention that with every thrust you kinda just propel yourself forward, causing you to bump into things a lot. Oh, and first comment on your comic! I love this so much. You earned my respect, good sir! Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
