    Run for your lives, sci-fi fans! It’s SEXY!

  2. Bob Says:

    Are pillows necessary in outer space?

  3. fred Says:

    I wouldn’t touch that book unless I was wearing a hazmat suit.

  4. Michael Toland Says:

    “So you don’t understand basic anatomy or perspective? No problem – I’m sure it’ll be great!” – clueless editor to even more clueless illustrator

  5. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Given the absence of friction, the whole endeavor of sex in space will probably turn out to be one long exercise in frustration. Plus a hard thrust might send your partner clear out of the galaxy, literally.

  6. Ryan Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – So is that what happened to the Space Sheep? Thrust off into all eternity, nevermore to hide her Space Shame?

  7. Tag Wizard Says:

    @Ryan – Spoke too soon. Sheep is back!

    Errors in Orbit

  9. Francis Boyle Says:

    Is this the earliest Space Sheep has put in an appearance? I think it’s going to be a good bad year.

    Also, if that’s the best space sex can offer I’m staying on Earth.

    ‘I remember that there was a Tom Swift parody featuring a robotic car with sex toys built in, and another story featuring a male sex robot that could squirt out flavored yogurt.’

  11. JuanPaul Says:

    So THAT’s why Blue Origin is shaped the way it is.

  12. THX 1139 Says:

    I only read GSS for the articles, meself.

  13. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “Science fiction discovers sex!”

    In 1974? Well, better late than never.

    @fred: and that does indeed sound like something written by an adolescent who has just picked up on the idea of “kinky.”

    The picture as it is looks like Space Sheep and the reclining spacewoman are engaging in kissy-face.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I’m pretty sure SF had discovered sex before 1974, so just the blurb is off-putting, before you even get to, uh… whatever the hell is going on in the art.

    She’s lost her boobs and parts of her legs to the cosmic void? Some sort of transporter accident?

    Honestly, Space Sheep makes it more visually appealing and wholesome, which is a sentence probably never typed here before.

  15. A. R. Yngve Says:

    This asphyxiation kink was bad enough in the Earth’s atmosphere, but in the vacuum of outer space it gets absolutely morbid.
