Title: Cheap Astronomy – Dear CA #92: Sex in Space!

Organization: Cheap Astronomy


Description: Cheap Astronomy puts gender on the agenda

How bad is gender bias in space?

In a perfect world, special consideration of women in space would be unecessary. There would just be consideration about generic humans where we might ponder a range of physical differences.

Can you, you know, get it up in space?

In terms of the sheer mechanics involved, the key point here, at least for the male half of the equation, is whether can you get it up in space. This is not to discount the vitally important role played by women in the overall transaction, but if the guys can’t get it up, the rest of the process does become a bit problematic.

Bio: Cheap Astronomy offers an educational website where you can get more Big Bang for your buck.
