Just so it is all in one easy place, if you are worried about pregnancy from any of the following, or any similar, scenarios, please know and accept that in reality, pregnancies absolutely, positively, cannot occur in these ways:
- By touching a sink, toilet, doorknob, piece of clothing or any other object which may or may not have or have had semen on it. Yep, even if you or someone else touched their vulva directly after.
- When everyone has clothes on, so there is no direct route inside the vagina, period.
- By having sexual thoughts or feelings
- Via oral sex. Yep, even if there is kissing later and someone ejaculated in someone else's mouth.
- By wearing the clothing, including undergarments, of someone with a penis.
- By touching the hands of someone with a penis, including if there may have been ejaculate on the hands.
- By sharing pools, tubs or showers with someone with a penis.

We have said it a million times before, but will keep in saying it. How pregnancy CAN happen, in reality, not in anxiety-driven scenarios, fantasies or speculative fiction, is:
- Through DIRECT - as in, no barriers, like clothing, water or an interstate highway - genital to genital (penis to vagina, vulva or anus) contact, especially if the person with the penis ejaculates or has very recently done so and/ or
- Through DIRECT contact with ejaculate and the vulva or vagina, like if and when someone with a penis ejaculates directly unto that uncovered area.
