This would depend on sexual apparatus and method of reproduction. However, there are some who might find any warm orifice inviting. Possibly a cold one as well.

Here is a supposition. What if the moon aliens expelled gases as a means of communication, but discovered that some of these gases caused halllucinogenic reactions in humans and could penetrate all forms of textiles or glass? Reactions that could be controlled by the aliens as well. What if they had great mental powers, but did not use technology? What if sexual contact with one of them produced orgasms that lasted for 15 or more minutes?
The most likely danger would come from disease if they are a DNA based life form. However, the terrain of the moon could suggest a rock, soil, or solar based energy absorption. Probably living in subsurface caverns for protection from micrometeorites, et al. Their principal food could be a form of mold and they might be able to collect water from deep within the moon, or drippings from within such caverns. There might be multiple forms of evolution in these subsurface areas as well. The Selenites might have developed both animal husbandry and mold agriculture. If there was technology it might be very different from what we have. Don't assume stupid just because they are different.

Green Peace had created in 1971, in this hypothesis that would be a consequence of the aggressive terrestrial policy towards Moon.

About this perspective I have to advice that GreenPeace activists would put space capsules in front of the nuclear missiles to defend the local lunar environmental treasure. Obtaining the support of public opinion and with the war in Vietnam the pacifist would ask for the end of the "new colonial war" on the Moon.

Then Nixon became President ...

Hehe, indeed!
Imagine someone landing on the supposedly inhabited Moon, spending some time there alone until one day they find a being attractive enough to give it a try. And when the job's almost done some wierd looking creatures (who turn out to be the only native sentient species) show up and shout "What the hell are you doing with the cattle?!"

What then, huh?
Not too worried about that. The job of germs is to digest stuff and make more germs. Not many things get stronger when they are being digested.

They may have been smart enough to discover us but realize that nothing good comes from contacting humans and just decided to stay away.

But they would HAVE to kill us.

Or else, sometime in the future, we would come and kill them. See?



Aw, to hell with it.
