What is the general responsible way to wash semen off skin as to be fully clean as consideration for others? My girlfriend complains dry sperm doesn't wash off easily. So I am guessing 2 washes with soap?

Guys masterbate regularly and I personally know of past classmates who told me all they ever do afterwards, instead of showering off an accident, they just wipe dry with tissue, and wash their hands quickly with soap. That doesn't seem right? I mean, how times do guys tuck in their T-shirts? Have pants dropped? Besides the icky-factor, I am asking because I read recently that Hep C can survive in a dry state for possibly up to 96 hours. So, if someone has Hep C, masterbates, does not wash an accident off or hands properly, and goes out to shop touching shopping carts, money..... well is that dangerous to us, the public???

I guess while on this topic, what if a girl was just beginning to menstrate who had Hep C and never told the guy until he already put his finger in her? If something like that happened, how do you wash to be safe? Just regularly or in some special kind of time or way ?

Hi noobyboy and welcome to Scarleteen,

First of all, here's an article on handwashing.

The Simple And Underrated Art Of Washing Your Hands

Is your girlfriend concerned about washing semen off herself?

Here's a link on Hepatitis C that should answer your questions about transmission.
