Is pregnancy possible like this?

Hi! I know you guys are tired of answering "immature" questions such as this one but if you may, can someone please try to explain? I haven't have sex, wow, neither have I been naked in front of my boyfreind. The most "sexual" thing we've done is basically make out. Now I know making out can't get you pregnant but if pre ejaculate passed through 2 layers of clothing( underwear and denim jeans) and made like "a wet spot" kind of not saturated either, and why im worried...if I touched the wet spot and then touched my self ( I didn't go all the way up either) would this impose a pregnancy risk? My hand or genitals never had skin to skin contact.... And my hand never really felt wet and sticky as I assume precum would feel like, but if I touched the wetspot then sperm will still be there right? Can sperm even penetrate through 2 layers of clothing and still make it out alive in my hand? I've seen similar questions to mine but the awnsers are unclear and wish to ask it my self. Thank you :').

Hello Anon

Thank you for posting!

As I am sure you will agree, we have never called a poster "immature" for asking these kinds of questions even though we have answered thousands of them! Mostly these questions are due to a lack of sex education and being too young/not ready for sexual activity. Your question is the same as many others but we understand that some readers want personal answers.

Pre-ejaculate itself does not contain any sperm. Sperm may be inside the urethra if a man ejaculated recently and did not urinate since. If he urinated since he last ejaculated, there is no sperm at all. Pregnancy is very uncommon from pre-ejaculate and the urethra would have to contain sperm at the same time. A woman would also have to be ovulating and engage in unprotected intercourse with ejaculation.

Prejecualte is very light and a minimal amount. It cannot pass through both underwear and denim. Sperm is really quite weak outside the body. It's far more likely that the "wet spot" was your own body fluids. Either way, no amount of touching it and then touching yourself would get you pregnant because as you said, there was no skin to skin contact.

Even when a woman has full, naked, unprotected sex, her risk of pregnancy is only about 20%. There is no risk at all for you.
