I’m just a bit concerned about dry sex, so I would like to know a few things before I engage in dry sex:
1)If me and my girlfriend are performing dry sex in our underwear is there a chance of pregnancy if I achieve orgasm or pre-come? I think that it would be almost impossible to get pregnant without direct genital contact, but I just wanted to be sure.
2) If both of us get wet, and I orgasm or pre-come in my underwear, can semen travel through 2 layers of clothes (through my boxers and her panties) and get to her egg? Again, I think this is rather unlikely, but I just wanted to be sure before engaging in such activity.

I just wanted to know this and be safe before I do anything.
Thanks for your answers.

Both situations you describe don't present risk of pregnancy as there is no direct genital contact. Sperm in the semen cannot travel through a layer of clothing.

1)I appreciate your reply, but can sperm travel through fabric such as underwear or not?
That would be a long journey since sperm would have to travel through my underwear and her underwear and than to the egg, so I doubt it's possible.

2)When if I engage in dry sex, is it possible to get pregnant if my partner is in her underwear and am I naked, is there a possibility that sperm or precum could get through her underwear and fertilize the egg, if there's only one layer of cloth between our genitals, and we should assume that she's wet.
I think it's rather unlikely, but I just want to be sure.

No, sperm cannot travel through fabric. As long as there is no contact between bare genitals or ejaculating on a bare vulva there is no pregnancy risk.
