Astronauts Warned Not To Masturbate In Space As One Session Can ‘Impregnate 3 Females’
During recording, Conan asked a Nasa engineer if he had ever sent porn to the International Space Station.
The engineer, identified only as Smythe, told him: “No, none of that.”
And O’Brien went on: “Does porn work in zero gravity? It goes everywhere.”
Smythe told him: “Three female astronauts can be impregnated by the same man on the same session… it finds its way.”
