I day-to-day situations (school, sports, etc.) is it possible for a male to have ejaculate on his hand without knowing so? If so, would it feel like his hand was dry? I know it is possible for pre-ejaculate to go unseen in sexual encounters, however if there is some on your hand is it at all noticable?
Basically..if my hands feel normal, could there still be sperm or pre-ejaculate on them?
Sperm are not like SARS. If your friends wash their hands like they should, you really ought not worry about this. And even if they don't wash their hands, you still shouldn't worry unless you really see some gloppy stuff in their hand.
as for pre-ejaculatory fluid, it is visible. just look at the little hole at the end of his penis. it drips out. so definitely get the condom on before that stuff can get near your genitals.
compared to drying out, sperm can live longer under water, however after a while, they burst (to find out why, read up on osmosis). on a damp cloth (or damp clothing like udnerwear), they can fare pretty well for a while, too.
