me and my boyfriend were dryhumping. he wore shorts and boxers, i had shorts, a pad, and underwear on. it didn't last too long and was more of me moving my hips against his, grinding almost. he wasnt very hard nor did he have precum and he didnt cum, but i felt his erection touching my vagina and he rubbed it against through the clothes. is there a risk i may be pregnant?

Hi messranon,

Thank you for your question. The simpliest answer is no you cannot get pregnant from dry humping with your clothes on. Sperm must be able to enter the vagina in some way in order for you to have the possibility of pregnancy. Sperm does not absorb through clothing. I hope this helps, as it appears that you don't need to worry.

Good luck,
