Hi, if I had some clothes with some semen/pre-cum on and I put then in the washing machine would the sperm be killed? Or could it stay alive and get onto other people's clothes? Thanks.

It might help to figure that anything like this about sperm cells? Would be true about skin cells, which are effectively shedding over everything, all the time.

In other words, if you don't worry about it with skin cells, or think something would be an issue with skin cells? It's not likely going to be with sperm cells. Like this.

Yeah I'm not worried that a pregnancy will happen, because as you have told me in the past pregnancy isn't possible without direct contact. I was more just wandering if it would kill them? I'm not particularly concerned. Thanks again.

Cells aren't viruses to be "killed." Seriously, there is just nothing to worry about here, or anything to even think about.

Just like skin cells, were sperm cells to be in the wash, they'd basically just fall apart.
