I am highly concerned because a few days ago, my boyfriend and I began making out and I felt like he got really turned on and it looked like he may have been hard. He was in his swim trunks (so, no underwear underneath) and I can't remember what I was wearing, but I know they were shorts that easily get moved around or hiked up. If his swim trunks were soaked, partially wet, moist, damp, or dry, would any of these circumstances allow precum to pass through? Or is a barrier a brrier no matter how wet with water it is.

I also have read all your pregnancy and risk-assessment related articles, and found nothing regarding my situation, as here, only he is wearing a swimsuit, and it may have been damp. I know you say as long as there is one layer of fabric between two people that is not thread bare, pregnancy cannot occur from ejaculate getting through. But swimsuits are a very different material, so I don't know how it applies. I've looked for old threads with a similar question but they all involve being in water at the time of rubbimng against eachother, which I was not.

A swimsuit is an item of clothing. And that is true regardless of whether it is wet or dry.

So it would prevent pregnancy completely? Or just decrease the risk?

Hi hello kitteh. Swimsuits being clothing means that they act like any other clothing -- you cannot get pregnant when there is a layer of clothing between you.

Also, as explained in the post I'll link below, right now we really need you to assess your own pregnancy risks based on the information provided on our site. I understand that you were confused about the status of a swimsuit; and hopefully the clarification from Joey and Onionpie made sense. [Smile]
