Is there any possible way that you could get pregnant from using a mans towel to dry yourself. (including using it to dry "down there")

Can I get pregnant if my partner ejaculates in his pants/in the bathtub/in Afghanistan (and so forth)?
Overall, the MOST likely way to become pregnant is by direct vaginal (not necessarily just vulval) contact with sperm. Sperm can live up to about 20 minutes in an environment that is friendly to them, but they are basically pretty delicate creatures in the great outdoors. So while, for instance, having unprotected anal sex where sperm can run right down into your vagina puts you at risk of pregnancy, it isn't as likely you will become pregnant as it is if you had vaginal intercourse. If there is a distinct barrier
between your vagina and the penis in question, such as thick or nonpermeable clothing (like a few layers of denim or polyester or PVC), water, or an interstate highway, you are not at a high risk of pregnancy.
