Hello Once Again,

I am a little confussed once again about 'precum' from scarleteen i learnt that it does contain sperm, but the web address at the bottom says different. it basically says on those pages that their is only sperm in the precum if the male has ejcaulated recently before arousal. but that goes again what i am told here. Also i was told that out of the million of sperm that are ejaculated in semen only about 50 make it to the egg's location. but then even if there is sperm in the precum, wouldn't the chance of sperm making it to the egg be like 1 in 10000000.??? I think that's all for now, Thanks for any help recieved, i really appreciate it. Bye.

yes. in general, pre-ejaculate contains less sperm than ejaculatory fluid does. (around here, we generally try to avoid slang terms like "cum" - they confuse everyone's lives.)

that said, how many sperm does it take to get pregnant? oh, that's right. just one. there is no way of knowing exactly how many sperm there are at any given time. it varies.

what you need to know, basically, is that there is a risk from vaginal contact with pre-cum, and that although it may seem negligible, it's not. people have gotten pregnant from it.

also, pre-ejaculate can carry diseases just like any other bodily fluid! so condoms, condoms, condoms. :-D


Boys and girls in America have such a sad time together; sophistication demands that they submit to sex immediately without proper preliminary talk. Not courting talk - real straight talk about souls - for life is holy and every moment is precious. I heard the Denver and Rio Grande locamotive howling off in the mountains. I wanted to pursue my star further. -Kerouac
