How to Have Sex on Other Planets

On Mars, in the name of war, you will don the colorful masks and vibrant costumes of Mexican luchadores. As pro-wrestlers, you will tag-team yourselves, flying off the blue ropes into the red, iron-oxide hematite. Prepare for engagement. You will act out the moves of battle, but only as rehearsed. You will tear at each others' bodies and clothes, but only as theater. You will beat and pelt one another, drenched in sweat and passion, but only for dramatic effect.
