ask: Can you get pregnant by dry humping?

By Anonymous

Hello,
I was wondering if you can get pregnant from dry humping? Also if the male cummed in his pants, would it go through his pants jeans or jogging bottoms then the femals jeans or leggings then her pants? Also if a male has sperm on his fingers then he went to the bathroom and he washed his hands with cold water then he dried his hands on a towel, would the sperm be dead?

Basically it is impossiable to get pregnant when your fully clothed espically when you have 4 layers of clothing, the sperm cant swim through clothing because it needs liquid so that it cant move around. Is this right?

I have a question, if your dry humping and he ejaculated the sperm cant go through clothes because clothes are dry and sperm need fluids to keep them alive and so with clothing if the clothinf is dry will the sperm die because of dry clothing? Or can it some through like four layers of clothing?

Sperm cannot permeate through any clothing-- it will not get you pregnant.

Good Luck,

Sperm doesn't survive water.
