is it true that if we touch semen with our fingers, the most sperm will die?

Hi Gilan! Welcome to Scarleteen! [Smile]

Sperm cells are very delicate, and not only to the touch of your fingers but they need a very special enviroment to live. I think this link will explain everything you want to know:

Who's Afraid of Sperm Cells?

Hope it helps! [Smile]

oh, and one more question please. If we wash our hands (without soap)and wipe it with tissue after touching semen, does it safe enough before we put our hands into girl's vagina? pregnancy won't happen because of this, right? (I'm sorry because I live in Moslem country and sex ed is some sort of taboo here. I can't ask anyone about me fingering my gf)thanks for your attention [Smile]

Yep, it is. Handwashing also helps prevent genital infections, so it's always a good idea. [Smile]
