My boyfriend had his jeans and boxers on and I had my pants and underwear off. He started dry humping me and ejaculated inside his jeans. Could i get pregnant?

If the semen soaked through, i'm not sure if it did though. Just paranoid about it.

If it soaked through, you'd have felt it and seen it. It'd look like...well, like pants look if and when we wet them.

But if he had jeans and boxers on, this isn't something you need to worry about in terms of pregnancy or STI risks.

Thanks! This is the first straightforward answer I've gotten. I appreciate it! I've heard many times that if sperm can get through the tiny holes in condoms then why couldn't they get through jeans? Why is this?

It was also dark and i couldn't tell if he had soaked through or not ... I kind of felt around and i just felt something slightly damp but that might have been from me and not him.

Sperm need their seminal fluid in order to move. So your example of a condom with a hole in it, it's not just the sperm getting through but the seminal fluid as well. Seminal fluid soaks into fabric, meaning that the sperm dont' have anything in which to move, and they don't move by themselves. They also don't live outside the body very long at all; they die very quickly.

One of the ways I like to picture this is that if semen takes any stops on the way from penis to vagina (such as onto a hand or onto a piece of clothing) then the sperm are no longer viable.

Btw, HelloLove, there are no tiny holes in condoms that sperm can get through. The only time a condom has a hole is when it breaks, and that is a very big hole that you will notice.
