Today’s lifelong dream dashed: killjoy NASA commander says no shagging in space

If it’s been a long time dream of yours to get your rocks off in zero gravity, it appears that NASA’s taking a bit of a hard line on space shagging.

Although it’s not an out and out ban as some outlets are implying, the Telegraph quoted a NASA commander who essentially frowned on the idea of sex in space- which probably means like, all of NASA says no sex in space. Bummer:

“We are a group of professionals,” said Alan Poindexter, a NASA commander, during a visit to Tokyo, when asked about the consequences if astronauts boldly went where no others have been.

“We treat each other with respect and we have a great working relationship. Personal relationships are not … an issue,” said a serious-faced Mr Poindexter. “We don’t have them and we won’t.”

Pretty much every outlet went on to gleefully remind us of Lisa Marie Nowak, the bunny boiling ex-astronaut who was caught up in a salacious other-astronaut-related scandal back in 2007. If you recall, Nowak was so obsessed with the target of her affections that she went on a multi-state solo road trip spanning hundreds of miles with the aim of kidnapping a romantic rival, and she’s said to have packed adult diapers to avoid stops on her journey.
