Kris]how is it possible for people plugged in to reproduce. Wouldn't their knackers be sterile? [snapback]12867[/snapback]
I'm guessing people who are plugged in don't reproduce - that would be done by a test-tube baby like system by the machines I guess. It's the people who AREN'T plugged in who would reproduce.
As much as it is painful to remember, there was a scene in Matrix Reloaded which demonstrates that quite clearly .
