Sperm through tissue

If a woman spit sperm into a tissue in her hand, touched other objects, then went to the bathroom about an hour later, is there any way to get pregnant from that?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us with your questions.

No. There is no risk for pregnancy in this situation. The sperm in the semen remains in the tissue.
Outside the body, sperm lives only about 20 minutes.

Could any of the sperm seep through the tissue into the hand?

Probably not. I think it would have been trapped in the tissue.
