      Yes, you can have sex in space. Apparently, the US and Russians have had astronauts have sex for “research” so it is definitely possible. They tried 20 different positions and only four positions were found possible without “mechanical assistance”

      There is research currently ongoing to figure out new ways to make sex convenient in space. This is partially because of the planned mission to mars (it will take 6 months to get there). We don’t know how 0 gravity will affect pregnancy and the growth of a baby
