Around here, the answer is no but I've seen other teen health websites say that it does contain sperm.

Also, a little side question. While I've read on here that manuel sex can't cause pregnancy, other websites says it can. Are there any reported cases of this?

Thanks in advance.

Could you point to where we've said that pre-ejaculate does not contain sperm? Because it absolutely can, and if we've given incorrect information somewhere that needs to be changed.

To clarify: it doesn't contain sperm itself, but can pick up sperm from the urethra that are hanging around after a previous ejaculation. This is unlikely to happen if a person with a penis has urinated after ejaculating, but there's no way to know for sure, which is why it's always safest to act as if sperm are present.

Per your second question, we're not responsible for what other websites say, as explained here: http://www.scarleteen.com/cgi-bin/forum/ultimatebb.cgi?/ubb/get_topic/f/14/t/000378.html

All we can tell you is that we stand by the information we give, which is that manual sex does not pose a risk of pregnancy. If you want clarification about the information presented elsewhere, you'll have to check with the individuals responsible for that information.

So if someone's urinated along with a shower, pre-ejaculate as surves as literally, no risk? Or is there still a slim chance?

It's just not possible to be sure that there are no sperm, so it can't be no risk, if you're doing activities which can result in pregnancy. It is possible to co-create a pregnancy from genital-to-genital contact without ejaculation and with no barrier (like clothes or a condom) or contraception, so for anyone who does not want to co-create a pregnancy, we strongly recommend that people do not engage in direct genital-to-genital contact without contraception.
