Is it true that when precum travels through clothes, any sperm in it is no longer intact and that is why it is not effective? Curious about it, thanks [Smile]

Hi abacadaba,

Yep, that's pretty much what happens. Sperm are fragile, and they need the fluids they come with to help them move and survive. You can read more about that in these two articles:

Too, pre-ejaculate is typically only a few drops of liquid, so it is usually not going through even a single layer of clothing in the first place.

Hello!
So a few days after my period last month my boyfriend and I were dry humping, and he had jeans and his underwear on and I had thin underwear on. He pre-cumd and I've noticed there was a wet spot on his jeans. And I was sitting on that spot. Until I have noticed it. And at first I wasn't worried about it. But this past week I've been worried/stressed about it. I was supposed to start my period on the 10th of May, and I'm 3 days late so far (and I'm also irregular)... I need help/answers! Please! I'm scared that I might be pregnant!

Hi KailzM,

It is much easier to keep up with new posts if people make their own vs. adding on to an additional one if they have a new question, so please do that in the future! =)

There's a "new topic" button at the bottom left of every page. Just click that and you're good to go.

Thank you!! & that's why dry humping with multiple layers of clothing, even if there's a visible wet spot from precum, doesn't pose a pregnancy risk, correct?
