Moscow, Apr. 23 (ANI): Russian or Soviet cosmonauts never had sex in space in the 50 years of human exploration of the cosmos, according to a Russian expert.

“There’s no official or unofficial evidence that there were instances of sexual intercourse or the carrying out of sexual experiments in space,” quoted Valery Bogomolov, the deputy director of the Moscow-based Institute of Biomedical Problems as telling the Interfax news agency in an interview.

“At least, in the history of Russian or Soviet space exploration this most certainly was not the case,” added Bogomolov.

Rumours 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.

“As for American space exploration, well, I just don’t have the information to categorically deny that. There are just anecdotal rumours which are not worth trusting,” he said. (ANI)
