Dr. John Milis from Anderson University (USA) told what sensations can arise in people who find themselves "among the stars" and decide to have sex in zero gravity.
Scientists say that intimacy in space can bring not so much to pleasant sensations as to trouble, writes the New York Post.
The first problem that the expert drew attention to is the "clouds" of sweat that will separate from the members of the duo, he notes.
"With vigorous movements, sweat will separate from the skin and accumulate on the body. Especially in places of contact with another person," the site Dni.Ru quotes Milis's explanations. In addition, scientists note, in such conditions, problems with erection and sexual arousal can arise.
American astrophysicist Neil de Grasse Tyson adheres to a similar point of view. According to him, sex in zero gravity makes it impossible to have sex in Newton's second law.
On Earth, this law does not interfere with making love, since the force of attraction does not allow bodies to "fly away" in an undesirable direction. But in space, Tyson notes, contact with a partner during intercourse will force his body to accelerate in a given direction until it hits the wall of the spacecraft, writes the NTV.ru website.
