If a guy and a girl are dry humping with just underwear on both, cotton boxers, and cotton panties. The male produces precum which comes through his boxers as a wet spot. Is there risk of pregnancy, I know the answer is no, but the outside of the underwear is wet, so shouldn't there be sperm where there is wet?

Hi Robin,
I have read that material thoroughly. I know it says that sperm or pre-ejaculate in this case cannot get through the fabric it gets absorbed. But if it gets absorbed in the fabric and the other side of the fabric is wet, wouldn't sperm still be pregnant on the wet side?

No.

Sperm need a very specific environment in which to stay alive and move. This environment is semen. If that environment is interrupted, sperm cannot live, and more importantly cannot move.

This article explains pretty clearly exactly what is needed in order for pregnancy to even be a possibility.

Robin,
I think we are missing each other here some how. What I'm saying is if the sperm in pre ejaculate is absorbed by the cotton, what is the wet stuff on the outside of the underwear? Does that contain the stuff to make pregnancy?

Like Robin said above, sperm needs a specific environment to survive. Even if semen gets on the fabric of your underwear and the wetness soaks through, that underwear is not an environment in which sperm can survive and create a pregnancy. This article and chart should clear up the issue. Note the mention that direct genital contact is needed for a pregnancy risk.
