So from my previous post, I asked about the risk of pregnancy. From your articles I was able to realize that basically the only way to get pregnant is either from vaginal intercourse or genital to genital contact. Anything from touching pre-cum then touching yourself or sitting on a toilet seat with semen on it will not get your pregnant. Before I found this amazing site, however, I googled pregnancy risk. There was alot of comments on sites saying you could get pregnant from having pre-cum on your hands and then touching yourself. I know googling your problems will not give you a credible answer, but why do so many people on certain sites say they actually got pregnant from not having sex? I mean there are some people that say they are virgins but got pregnant.

So, you know that Google searches -- any search engine searches -- really aren't about what information is credible or not, yes? Rather, when you put in search terms, it's about finding pages that key most to those terms, whether the information about them is sound or not.

We can't possibly know for sure, especially so generally, why people say the things they do like this. For sure, many people haven't had sound sex education -- far more haven't than have -- some people get off on making people panic because they're bored. In terms of people saying they are pregnant who haven't been sexually assaulted OR engaged in any of the kinds of consensual sex that can cause pregnancy, they may be being dishonest (including about being pregnant) or about what they have and haven't engaged in. Many people don't feel okay about their sexual choices, or able to be honest about them.
