I've read about semen cannot went through clothing because of the thickness nature of the semen. I just wonder, could a girl got pregnant by washing semen on his body? I mean, the sperm got mixed up with water, then the liquid (mix of sperm and water)went through the girl's underwear? silly question isn't it? but in the country I lived, I simply dont get any education about the sperm and its ability. Thanks for the attention [Smile]

I think that these two pieces will not only answer that question for you, but also give you the kind of information about all of this you express you've been lacking:

You can also know that any activity NOT listed on this page at all -- Can I Get Pregnant, or Get or Pass On an STI From That? -- is something you can be sure just doesn't pose pregnancy risks, period.

Thanks for the reply Heather [Smile]

I've read the link and its pretty clear that no way sperm can make it through the underwear and make a girl pregnant. Sorry about my stupid question, then [Smile]

Though I'd want to know exactly, how could thin underwear stop sperm from entering the vagina? assuming that in the case of sexual encounter, the vagina will be wet isn't it? Why sperm couldn't mix with that fluid and make it way up there?

I'd be very grateful if you answer my questions [Smile]

Hi Gilang5,

The two articles Heather gave you go into a lot of detail about what sperm need to do their job (such as the presence of semen), and what keeps them from doing their job.

As you read in the "Where did I come from?" article, sperm can't just mix with any fluid and do it's job; it needs semen, and it needs the semen to have certain conditions.

It sounds to me like you already know that sperm can't get through underwear.

So, can you fill me in on what you're still feeling unsure about here?

Thanks Robin..

(first, sorry if I couldn't write in english well)

Actually a few days ago I ejaculated on my gf's breast, and she washed it with water. I just wondered if it could make way down through underwear and goes up into vagina. And then about 3 minutes later I fingered her ( my hands were dry, though). I think we just curious because, after about one year of our relationship we decided to not do sexual intercourse anymore until we know if it is safe enough and doesn't pose much risk.

Besides, me and my gf want to know if condom is safe enough for contraception? we both 22 years old and wanna wait for about 3 years more until we are married. We found it just hard to abstain from sex.

Thank you [Smile]

So, just to make sure I understand, you saw in the articles that the two behaviors your engaged in did not carry a risk?

As to your question on condoms, I think this might be a good article to take a look at:
Condoms. I want to add that, if you still aren't comfortable using only condoms, you can look into a back-up method.
