Can I get my girlfriend pregnant by washing my semen, drying my self with a towel and then rubbing our private parts against each other?

Me and my girlfriend are both virgins, i ejaculated on myself and then rinsed it off with cold water quickly and rubbed my self of with a towel quickly. I then went back to her and we started rubbing our private parts on each other naked, is there any chance of pregnancy in a situation like this?

Hello Anonymous,

There would not have been a risk for pregnancy if you rinsed and wiped away all the semen.

Thank you very much! So water and towel drying is enough to kill the semen? Because I heard that once semen is released without touching the genetile of the female, it starts dying and some of it is dead and with water it creates shock to the sperm and ruptures it.

Hi Anonymous,

Sperm can live outside the body about 20 minutes. Once semen is dry, sperm is dead. Washing and drying removes any remaining semen. I really don't see how water creates shock and ruptures the sperm.

Oh alright thank you, this was found just through online research so probably not that reliable. As long as washing and drying is enough, then it's okay especially that she's a virgin.
