I was wondering and i came here because I just wanted to know if this was a possible pregnancy risk
1. Receiving a hand job and ejaculating my shorts
(Like basketball shorts)
2. Touching the wet spot where the ejaculation is accidently
3. Fingering a girl with the fingers that touched the wet spot

I guess my question is could soerm travel through 1 layer of clothing on to fingers and still cause pregnancy ?
I was just curious so if I can get an answer that would be great

Hey Guide,

Could you please read through some of your previous posts, and the links we gave you about pregnancy risks? I think you'll find your answer there.

If you have more questions, come on back. [Smile]

Reading through some of the material on this website, sperm can not go through clothes so even if someone ejaculated in their pants and touched it then fingered a woman there would not be a pregnancy risk? Would I be right?

I think it means that the scenario I stated isn't a pregnancy risk.
I thank you for your time and thank you for answering my question.

Because, as I think we've explained before, DIRECT contact is required, since sperm cells need that seminal fluid they are part of AND because sperm cells are very delicate. They just can't get moved around from place to place to place like that and remain viable.

But if you're still worrying about this, have you changed your behaviors? Like NOT engaging in any sexual contact like this while you still feel so worried? Or, washing your hands before you put them on someone's genitals, which is just good manners, anyway, since not washing hands can make it more likely for a girl to get bacterial or urinary tract infections?

I think you'll find this article explains the answer; it talks about the viability of sperm outside of the body: Are My Sperm Still Squirming?

There's also this quote from the "dry humping freakout" article linked above:
quote:
“They [sperm] need the properties of semen in order to move. Another way of looking at it is that if the semen makes any stops between a penis and vagina, such as on your hands or a piece of clothing, the sperm can’t then move from there to the vagina, even if the area where they landed touches the vulva (outside of the vagina) or inside the vagina itself.”

I thank you for your answers again, but I just like to say that it was a question. I didnt actually engage in this so with that said thanks again.
