    A serious question, despite the humourousness of it:

    In a zero-gravity enviroment, would large, natural breasts, either point forward or point up, instead of sagging beneath gravity?

    What about flaccid penises?

    Well firstly 'zero g' is somewhat of a misnomer no oject in the known universe that is ever one hundred percent without the influence of gravity. For example the obit of the int space station is an influence of the earths gravity for one. Although that's pretty well besides the point.
    Anyway I would say, if you were naked in what is known as a zero g environment, breasts and penis would show a tendency towards a mid point in all directions i.e. not settle proud in any direction, but the would still be subject to vibration(more so infact than on earth) from movement of the body an jiggle about a lot.

    I wonder if I could get funding to study that?

    As far as I have heard, they have done sex studies in space. I wish I was an astronaut

    Absane:

    Really? I've always wondered if they have done such experiments.

    Wasn't there a case where two married people went up into space?

    imaplanck:

    Thank you for the response. Most helpful.

    I just thought of something more humorous and yet still serious: Contacting NASA and/or madsci.org with the question.

    I once heard a woman described as "Dolly Parton in zero G" Quite a visual.

    Sorry, Pete.

    I have already allocated all of the available funding to my own study of breasts ( my work is presently in the phase of studying breasts in Earth gee, then extrapolating to lesser gee conditions. ).

    However, I do not anticipate doing any work in researching flacid penixes ( what are they, anyway? ) so you are welcome to apply without competition.

    Do you think we should we start up a petition?

    I have been studying ( female ) breasts all my adult life without a petition ( and most of the time with no funding ). I don't have an opinion about a petition.

    You wouldn't need to go to space to study this. Just submerge a naked woman in a swimming pool.

    Well you wouldnt get the same effect, you would get buoyancy rather than microgravity(you ever dropped a rubber brick?). A better bet is a parabolic plane.
