The space sex problems that could stop Elon Musk colonizing Mars with new babies – including radiation and low libido 0 184

ELON Musk has big plans for humans to colonize Mars and has previously said he’d like one million people to be there by 2050.

Living on the Red Planet will be difficult in itself but colonizing it could present other issues including the problem of having babies in space.

No one has ever gotten pregnant in space and even sex in space has never been officially recorded.

The topic is something space agencies are looking to explore as long-distance space travel draws closer to being a reality.

If humans are to one day live in space and colonize Mars, we’ll need to work out how to reproduce there.

So far, several issues with sex in space have been identified.

Low libido

Astronauts have previously noted that their sexual libido suffered during space missions.

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

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.

It’s currently unclear if long space missions to Mars or living on a different planet would have a similar effect.

Pushing your partner away

Without gravity, the actual act of having sex could prove to be the biggest issue.

A lack of gravity means your partner would be pushed away from you without some sort of assistance.

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.”

Radiation threats

A recent study found that space radiation from a Mars mission could affect how fertile a woman is.

According to a paper in the European Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Reproductive Biology: “Space travel has different effects on the reproductive capacity of women compared to men.

“The radiation exposure intrinsic to deep space travel causes destruction of some of a woman’s primordial follicles.

“Data suggests that a typical Mars mission may reduce a women’s ovarian reserve by about 50%.

“This has consequences to a woman’s reproductive capacity and, more significantly, decreases the time interval to her menopause.”

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.
