just a short question i've always been a little confused by...could a guy ejaculate through clothes? for example, if he just had like boxers on, but the girl was wearing jeans, would it be possible for her to get pregnant?

Well, Hanne just made an excellent flow chart on risks like this.

But to answer your question, it depends. Yes, the girl could get pregnant, if a lot of semen seeped through the clothes. And, if they're thin or light, the risk is even greater.

Yeah, well I'VE got blood dripping out of a hole between my legs, do YOU?!?
there is a difference between being stupid and being ditzy. i ought to know

I believe in the example u gave, it is really quite unlikely. Jeans would protect I believe.

Ya know, clothes aren't sold as contraceptives, and there's a reason: if semen can soak through it, sperm are gonna go along for the ride. They're microscopic, and can, generally speaking, swim right through the holes between clothes fibers like an eel through seaweed. This is why fabric condoms (which were used at various points in the past as a means of trying to give protection from syphilis and other STDs as well as pregnancy) don't work.

So it really doesn't matter what kind of clothes you're wearing. If semen can soak through it, then yes, there is a possibility that semen and sperm might soak through those clothes, and depending on what happens next, there could be SOME chance of pregnancy.
