Seductions in Space

Defying Gravity Launches Lust in Space

As recently illustrated by AMC’s Sci Fi Scanner, there is a long and noble tradition of science fiction’s exhaustive exploration of sex in space. ABC’s new drama Defying Gravity, however, expands on this time-honored titillation in surprising detail, considering its a network-broadcast series.

The first few episodes have featured a recurring dream wherein Zoe — one of the many attractive women in the show — can be seen floating naked and smiling out an airlock. A carefully-framed session of zero-g consolation sex is a touching sendoff when a husband must leave the mission. There is all manner of traditional hanky-panky among the crew, including amateur hour at the local strip joint, but these Earth-bound exploits must pale in comparison to the weightless workouts to come.

The science is sound enough to satisfy the casual science fiction fan, but viewers will no doubt be more intent on observing the future floating frolic of these ardently amorous astronauts. If you have any qualms about the crew’s unprofessional undulations, be certain that when all is said and done, the unseen alien influence will ultimately take the blame.

    It may have all been a trick! Since the initial episodes, Defying Gravity almost been a regular science fiction series with a bit of light flirting now and again. Still, we have our memories…
