Back in 1969 (heh), man touched down on the moon for the first time. And ever since that point in time, people have asked themselves: Has anyone ever had sex up there? How about in the spaceship? Did an astronaut jerk it onto a moon rock?

Pornhub's not gonna be able to tell us if the first moon mission was secretly some kind of weird fetish experiment (well, probably—I've reached out for comment, but no response yet), but they are planning on confirming, once and for all, that two people can have sex in space:

Pornhub is teaming up with top ranking adult studio Digital Playground in joining the ranks of Armstrong and Gagarin by pioneering a one of a kind mission to defy gravity, make history, and push the boundaries of intergalactic "Sexploration" by filming the first ever sextape in space. In doing so, we will not only be changing the face of the adult industry, we will also be chronicling how a core component of human life operates while in orbit.

They're using IndieGogo to fund the exploration, though donations aren't coming as fast as you'd expect—as of this post's composition, they'd only raised $9,446, well short of the $3.4 million required to launch two people into space and then also, I'm guessing, a film crew and some pretty advanced equipment, and also a spaceship. Wait, only $3.4 million?
