Sex in the Final Frontier

Here's an interesting bit of research you mightn't have heard about

US and Russian astronauts have had sex in space for separate research programmes on how human beings might survive years in orbit, according to a book published yesterday.

The results:

Only four positions were found possible without "mechanical assistance". The other six needed a special elastic belt and inflatable tunnel, like an open-ended sleeping bag.

And of course how the puritanical Americans handle this:
The results were videotaped but are considered so sensitive that even Nasa was only given a censored version.
Whomever has that tape could make a million!
