Noonan (2001)[1] (read in full: IES) offers few specific insights in the developmental status of sexualities in extraterrastial situations. However, we learn that it might well be the case that “Children and adolescents will, of course, practice masturbation when they become a part of settlements in space in the distant future, just as they will have hetero- and homosexual experiences, as they do on Earth in various societies today”.


I would say growing up sexually in cyberspaceis a new field of attention (consider post hoc chapter 18 for GUS volume 2).
