heyya~

my boyfriend and i have recently been entertaining the idea of showering together. however i'm worried that i could still get pregnant if he pushes up against me (not penetration). is it true that bath water can kill sperm because of the heat?

also, we have been sleeping in the nude together...however, i'm worried about the pregnancy possibilities of this as well. please advice~

There's no need to worry about pregnancy occuring while you're sleeping. Really.

Per the shower, while hot water do not "kill" sperm, if the two of you are not engaging in sexual activities while showing, you do not have pregnany risks.

As Miz S said, if you are not engaging in sexual activities while you are in the shower, there's nothing to worry about. So just being in the same shower or having normal contact while there will not pose a pregnancy risk. However, engaging in sexual activity there (be that intercourse or outercourse) could pose a risk.
