Hey all! [Smile]

So I was doing some research and there seems to be a lot of mixed answers on just exactly how long sperm lives outside the body, so I thought i'd ask the experts, cuz i've been almost completely misunderstanding this from all angles [Razz]

Example scenario, how long can sperm live on a towel in a laundry hamper?

I know sperm lives until it dries, but what exactly counts as "dried, no longer viable sperm"?

Say there is a drop of semen the size of a penny.

Would simply draping a single piece of tissue paper over it then removing it already make it not viable?

Thanks! [Smile]
