Well, I just want to know how long does it live after being wiped with a towel? Is it still alive after an hour? I just want to be sure. And does it live in thin towels like this one after an hour? Please and Thank you.

Hi. My boyfriend masturbated last night and we had sex the day after during the after noon. As soon as he placed it in me, would I be pregnant from when he came last night? Or would the sperm have already died?

Hello.

Any traces of ejaculate left on his penis from the day before (if he didn't shower or clean himself) would be dried in which case the sperm is dead.

So today me and my gf were in the mood. Embarrassingly, we dry humped. NOTE: last time I touched my dick was to reposition it and it was with my left hand (remember that). Also, my hands were on he couch the whole time (so possible sperm could’ve dried). Then, I ended up cumming (still clothes on). I get off and go to get my sweater and backpack (maybe the sperm could’ve dried on the sweater or the backpack) and I continue to somewhat finger her with my right hand. She’s worried, help please! :(

Hello Anon

Unless there was live sperm deposited on the opening of her vagina, she won't get pregnant. There is some very small chance it did so she may want to consider taking emergency contraception.

Hi there, i ejaculated on my partners stomach and when she was cleaning up she used a wet baby wipe to clean the semen and accidently did so also around her vagina with the same wipe. On this occasion we didn't have sex. Is there any risk of her getting pregnant? Also she is 6 weeks post partum as well?
