It is not only possible, but it existed in many places, including monasteries, army service, prisons, mines, polar stations, etc, except reproduction. How this society would look like? Most likely it would involve heavy use of the hormone replacement therapy to make some males look feminine to satisfy the sexual needs. So, the society would look like ...

Doomed to Failure. You focus solely on the mechanics of reproduction but fail to comprehend the fundamental nature of the human person and human society. We were made female and male for a reason: not just to reproduce but to balance and compliment one another within the context of a mixed society. A group that lacks one or the other of its two natural ...

An all-male sci-fi society could theoretically exist provided that we have a way to prevent females from ever being created.

Here's the problems, assuming they're still mostly human: Human females don't advertise (generally speaking) when they're fertile, and you're only looking at conception being even possible for 5 or 6 days per month. So, about 80% of the time, no chance of pregnancy just based on the odds. If you're talking a ratio of 1 to 100, and as mentioned a mature male ...

You need to have a think about like humans do you want them to be, socially and sexually? Humans are very bad at getting pregnant. Studies done on American newly weds who were actively trying to have a child (lots of sex, no contraception), showed that it took on average 6 months for them to conceive. Now that's an average, so some of them would have got ...

What you care about is something called effective population size. This is a term used by population biologists who want a way to quantify the genetic characteristics of some non-ideal population as compared to an ideal one. So a population that goes through bottlenecks or a population with highly variable reproductive success will have a lower effective ...
