Pregnancy from dry sex?

Hi! Okay so my boyfriend and I had dry sex. He wore underwear and cargo shorts while I had underwear and thin shorts. He came and I was obviously wet. I noticed I went through my underwear and shorts. I then also noticed he came through his shorts. What I fear is his wetness touching my wetness. Could this result in pregnancy??? I know sperm isn't strong enough to swim through clothing but in liquid it can...Thank you!

Hi Anon!

It doesn't matter about wetness, you're not going to get pregnant from this.

Hi sorry to seem doubtful, but are you 100% certain of this? And do you mind explaining why? Sorry just I can be so paranoid and I'd like to know for certain. Thank you again!

Sperm does not seep through clothing and up into a vagina to cause pregnancy. It's kind of like why doesn't a fish fly? Because they are not made that way!
Pregnancy occurs through sexual intercourse that is barrier free. Clothing is a good barrier against this. A lot of people focus on the "wetness" being a conduit for sperm but it doesn't work this way.
