When You Nut In Space, It Push You Backwards refers to a clip from The McElroy Brothers podcast My Brother, My Brother, and Me in which, while discussing the logistics of sexual intercourse in space, Griffin McElroy says "When you nut, it push you backwards." The phrase became a popular joke on Twitter in which fans of the podcast used it as a punchline in various setups.


The clip comes from the 401st episode of My Brother, My Brother, and Me, posted April 9th, 2018.[1] While discussing the logistics of sex in space, Griffin McElroy says the phrase "When you nut, it push you backwards."

After googling this for a while it seems that getting an erection in space is nigh impossible. It might work with aid in the form of viagra (and even then, the dosage needed is unknown to current science).

This is because of a lot of issues, including a heart that doesn't pump blood as hard, less blood in the lower body thanks to zero g pooling it in your torso, and the lowering of testosterone making you less horny to begin with.

Zero g also affects women, as the lack of gravity causes the blood to pool at the base of the vagina, not along it.
