Okay me and my girlfriend were fooling around and it just got really wild and one thing lead to another. She made me ejaculate and it got on her hand and my hands and then we both were playing around her vagina, now can sperm live after being in the air? I am not sure about these things and not sure of how high the risk or chance of her getting pregnant with just it being on our hands and entering the vaginal area. Please respond soon scared and worried beyong belief. Thank you.

It sounds to me like you're not clear really as to what exactly transpired and what contact was made.

If that is the case, I would suggest you err on the side of catuion and obtain emergency contraception. Really.

It's not a scolding, but do understand that "things" don't lead anywhere. We choose or choose not to act. Y'all chose to do things without thinking. It happens, but it doesn't have to -- you control these scenarios.

After you handle the panic -- which, btw, should include STI screens a couple months down the road -- and before you get intimate again, I'd suggest you both have a talk, make limits, and get the things you need to have sex safely and responsibly.

if you don't know what those are, look around the site here. You can start right here: http://scarleteen.com/sexuality/readiness.html

Well things did get a little out of hand but is there a high risk of her being pregnant from the contact that was made. Even though the sperm was not shot inside of her but was on our hands? I just want to know how likely pregnancy can occur from such contact. Thank you.

Sperm can live for as long as 20 minutes outside the body.

If you take a look at What's The Risk? - Five Easy Pregnancy Risk Assessment Flow Charts, you'll see that your situation (touching her vulva with semen on your hands) means that there's a moderate to high risk of pregnancy.
