HI Rey sumit and welcome to Scarleteen,

Just to clarify, sperm aren't germs. [Smile] Handwashing of any kind is a good idea before touching a partner's genitals, but that's more because dirty hands can spread dirt and bacteria and lead to infections.

Take a look at this article to understand what does and doesn't pose a pregnancy risk:

Where DID I Come From? A Refresher Course in Human Reproduction

Here's some more info on hand-washing:
The Simple And Underrated Art Of Washing Your Hands

Thank Robin Lee
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 vulval or vaginal contact with sperm. Sperm can live up to about 20 minutes in an environment that is unfriendly to them (in other words, outside the testicles, vagina or in lab conditions), but they are very delicate creatures in the great outdoors. So while, for instance, having unprotected anal sex where sperm can run right down into the vagina does create a possible risk of pregnancy, it isn't as likely a risk as it is with vaginal intercourse. If there is a distinct barrier between the 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, there is not a likely risk of pregnancy.

In addition, you cannot get pregnant by swallowing semen, by oral sex, or by manual (with hands, or "fingering") sex. You CAN, however, catch or transmit STIs that way.

Im Safe now no more risk??? please say it please
God bless you Robin

Based on the paragraph you quoted, do you think you have risk? [Smile]

When you don't engage in the kinds of sex that present a real risk of pregnancy -- intercourse or other DIRECT genital-to-genital or direct semen-to-vulva contact -- there's isn't a risk, so there isn't a percentage per a risk to give you.

Or you could thank us for them, since God didn't give them, we did. [Razz]
