I ejaculated in my underpants and left it in a pail of water in the bathroom for laundry next day. I think it has been left overnight for 8 hours before my girlfriend or sister touched my underpants which has semen on it the next morning.

My question: If a female touches my watery semen on the fabric and later touches her vulva or vagina in the course of using the bathroom, can she get STD? Can she get pregnant as well?

No and no.

And really, the idea that someone would see underpants not belonging to them in a pail of water, then touch them, not wash their hands and then touch their own genitals? This seems exceptionally unreasonable. Most people are not going to be picking up someone else's wet underpants no matter what, but instead would see something like that and walk away, then probably tell you to clean up your stuff instead of leaving it lying around.

Can you explain why there's no possibility of pregnancy and STI? Wouldn't sperm cells be kept alive in water since water prevents drying of sperm? Would there be sperm cells swimming in the water and some female hands would touch the water and gotcha, the sperm cells would be on the hands and fingers? Would the semen that remained on the fabric have live sperms? And when she touched her privates, the sperm cells would swim into her vagina?

As unreasonable as it may be for someone to touch a wet underpants, what if, I mean, what IF, someone came into contact with my wet semen and touches her genitals? I don't wish to rule out any possibilities, you know what I mean.

Sperm cells need a very specific environment to stay motile and viable. Plain old water doesn't provide that environment.

Again, even if you are not asking about anything which presents a pregnancy risk here. But I'm also going to ask that we really try and keep questions to being about realistic scenarios, rather than highly unlikely hypotheticals. It just doesn't make sense for us to talk about things which aren't remotely likely realities, and that isn't a sound use of our resources or time. To boot, if and when someone finds they are really fixated on unlikely hypotheticals and feeling very afraid, the help they need is most likely that of a qualified mental health professional, which isn't something we can offer here.
