Just in case you were wondering, neither Soviet nor Russian cosmonauts have ever had sex in space. Not ever. Not even once.
At least that’s what Valery Bogomolov, deputy director of the Moscow-based Institute of Biomedical Problems, told Russia’s Interfax news agency:
And who was asking? Well, according to AFP, “Rumors have persisted for years of secret Russian and American programs to test the effects of weightlessness on sex but this has always been strongly denied by both sides.”
Well, I guess you learn something new every day.
