Hi everybody!! I was browsing the site and I found something really interesting, in the article a cornucopia of Can I get pregnant if ? After the girls who posted about being kissed It says that fingering can pose a risk of pregnancy, it says that if a partner has fresh semen there could be a potential risk, I have seen how you answer questions about pregnancy resulting from fingering and all of them your answer is no, I would like to know the facts for sure because fingering is something I practice, (we all wash our hands and use latex sometimes when we have cuts) and have learned from you guys before it isn't a risky activity,but I felt confused by reading those articles, can someone help me through this ? Im really confused.

The reason we say no is when people come here, they're not saying their partner took a finger full of fresh semen and put it inside a vagina.

because really, that's the situation where there could be some actual risk, and even then, then risk would be low.

The situations we tend to get are much more like, "I gave him a handjob, he wiped his hands on his pants, we kissed, later he fingered me...." et cetera.

It sounds pretty clearly this isn't something you have to worry about, and extra bonus for you, everyone handwashing means you have to also worry a lot less about BV and UTIs, which are the real issues that tend to be issues when people don't wash their hands before manual sex.
