As you probably know, the lack of gravity seriously affects the human body. Most often negatively - after all, billions of years of evolution on our glorious planet went with the participation of the force of gravity, and this also applies to the penis. But what exactly will happen to him in space?
Sad news number one: in zero gravity, it will not get bigger. A person as a whole really "grows" a couple of centimeters due to the stretching of the spine. But in the penis, alas, there are no bones, and he is not threatened with straightening. We didn't want to tell you right away, but the dignity of the handsome astronaut at the next table in general, most likely, has diminished since you took off. In earthly realities, gravity contributes to the fact that the lower part of the male body is filled with blood, as soon as he sees something exciting. In space, a person's blood pressure decreases, and blood rushes to the chest and head of the astronaut. That is, the cavernous tissue of the penis, under such conditions, will obviously shrink, and you can not count on an impressive erection, even if you are Mila Jovovich since the "Fifth Element".
Sad news number two: living on a space station does not promote high levels of testosterone, a hormone necessary for an active penis. The confined space, lack of physical activity, monotonous diet, sleep problems and nervous relationships with other crew members - all these factors together prevent experts from optimistically talking about erection and sex drive in general.
But there is good news: the adventures of a penis in space may go completely different from the sad scenario described above. Former astronaut Mike Mullan in an interview with Men’s Health, for example, did not hesitate to say that he did not complain about the quality of morning erection during his tour: “I could drill kryptonite with a dick” (we quote). His colleagues, alas, are in no hurry to share intimate details (probably because there is nothing to brag about), and space agencies sanctimoniously hide from the public whether there is sex on the ISS. But wait - we'll see everything for ourselves.
