Scared about Pregnancy

Sometimes my boyfriend and I dry hump while my clothes are on and his penis is out, also after a handjob if I get any semen on me I wash it with warm water and soap. I've read things on the Internet and I'm too scared to ask my mom anything. So 1 can semen travel through clothes? 2. Have I taken care of any possible sperm after washing my hands & 3. Can I get pregnant in anyway from this

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
You cannot become pregnant from outercourse. Sperm cannot travel through clothing. Also sperm cannot travel out dry surfaces. Sperm also dies within a few minutes in open air. Washing it off is also ensures you will not get pregnant.
The bottom line is that if you do not have intercourse, pregnancy cannot occur.
Below I have pasted a link where you can read more about outercourse and pregnancy.
