If a guy has cum on his penis and then sits in a warm bath with his partner can she get pregnant?

Likewise, if a guy has cum on his penis and takes a shower with his partner and rubs his penis near her openings, can she get pregnant?

This is particularly an issue because the penis has phimosis and am worried about semen trapped underneath the foreskin and oozing out.

Thank you.

Sperm cannot survive the pH levels of the water, nor the temperature. So as long as there is no direct genital contact, there is no risk.

Direct, unprotected genital contact always presents a pregnancy risk. So yes, your shower scenario could present a risk. And I would hope your partner would be cleaning his foreskin daily, because i'm sure you could develop bacterial infections from old smegma trapped under the foreskin.
