Humans may need to have sex like dolphins or stick partners to the wall if they want to romp in space, experts claim 0 390

SEX in space is just one of the many challenges experts need to investigate if humans are to travel on longer missions.

According to Nasa, no human has ever had sex in space but scientists know from other studies that issues like a low sex drive and erectile dysfunction could plague astronauts.

The weightlessness of space is said to cause hormonal changes that could decrease a person’s sex drive.

There’s also the issue of gravity not being there to stop your partner from being pushed away from you.

Here are some of the theories scientists have on how sex in space could be made possible.

Having sex like dolphins

German astronaut Ulrich Walter wrote a book called ‘Höllenritt durch Raum und Zeit (A hell ride through time and space)’, which discusses sex in space.

The astronaut said he lost his libido during a 10-day stay in space but was reassured that it can return after a few weeks.

Libido aside, Walter was concerned with the mechanics of how two humans could avoid pushing each other away during space sex.

He previously suggested to German public broadcaster NDR that humans could use a sex method that dolphins rely on.

In the ocean, two dolphins sometimes have sex with a third dolphin holding them together so they don’t drift apart.

Walter suggested that humans could do something similar to stop the lack of gravity affecting intercourse abilities.

Sticking your partner to the wall

Former Nasa bioethicist Paul Root Wolpe told DW that Velcro could be a solution to space sex issues.

He told the outlet: “Everything on the walls of the space station is covered in Velcro, so you could take advantage of that by velcroing one partner to the wall.

“You have to get creative in this space.”

Sex robots in space

Simon Dubé, a Ph.D. candidate in Psychology specializing in human sexuality, sex tech, and Erobotics, previously suggested that sex tech should be made available to astronauts.

The researcher proposed that sex robots could be a convenient alternative to intimacy between humans.

He wrote in The Conversation: “Erobots could provide companionship and sexual pleasure to crew members and settlers.

“Beyond the capabilities of sex toys, erobots can incorporate social dimensions into erotic experiences.

“They could help with loneliness and the inevitable anxieties borne out of solitude.

“They could act as surrogate romantic partners, provide sexual outlets and reduce risks associated with human sex.”

Supporting Ukraine Through Purchasing Power: The Initiatives Keeping the Country’s Economy Afloat 0 171

Amidst the Russian invasion, Ukrainian creatives are launching initiatives to keep the country’s economy going by harnessing consumer power. Spend With Ukraine is one such online resource that connects consumers to Ukraine-based businesses across various industries, while the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund allows for donations to support artists. Co-founder of Spend With Ukraine, Andrey Klen, emphasizes the importance of supporting the Ukrainian economy through purchasing decisions. He states, “Armies win battles, but economies win wars.”

Ukrainian brands are still operating and many are donating a portion of their sales to different needs to support the country. To sustain interest in supporting Ukraine through spending, increasing the visibility of these initiatives is key. As Klen says, “We want it to blow out.” These efforts not only help Ukrainian creatives but also support existing industries and provide a sense of normality in these difficult times.

Ensuring Safety and Consent in the Adult Film Industry: A Vital Discussion 0 256

One topic that may be of interest to readers in the adult film industry is the topic of workplace safety and consent.

The adult film industry, like any other industry, has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of its workers. This includes providing a safe working environment, protecting workers from physical and emotional harm, and ensuring that all acts are consensual. However, the nature of the adult film industry can make it difficult to ensure that these standards are met. Actors and actresses may feel pressure to perform acts that they are not comfortable with, and there have been instances of abuse and exploitation in the industry.

To address these issues, it is essential for the industry to have clear guidelines and policies in place to protect the rights and safety of workers. This includes providing education and resources for performers, implementing strict consent protocols, and holding producers and directors accountable for ensuring a safe working environment.

Another important aspect of this topic is the importance of consent in adult film. Consent is a crucial aspect of any sexual encounter and must be obtained freely, enthusiastically, and without coercion. In the adult film industry, where performers are engaging in sexual acts on camera, it is especially important that consent is explicitly obtained and respected. This can be achieved through the use of consent forms and communication between performers before and during filming.

By discussing these topics, the industry can work towards creating a safer and more respectful environment for all performers and ensure that the rights and well-being of workers are protected.
