Should I be worrying?

I feel awfully embarrassed about this situation but I do really need the facts. So my period ended a week ago and I have a cycle of like 45 days+ (long I know). Anyway, so today I gave my boyfriend a handjob. He got Semen on his hands. He claimed to have washed his hands after but I'm not sure if he did. About an hour or so later he touched my vulva and vaginal opening etc with the same hand but didn't go Inside the vagina. I'm worried that some sperms could have survived from when he got it on his hands an hour before. Also after that he ejaculated a second time in his pants and about 10 minutes after that I layed on top of him while fully clothed but while he still had the semen in his boxers and pants. Could the sperm have gone through? Also I witnessed him touch the wet boxers and about 10 minutes later he touched my pubic area (his hands were dry). Could the sperm cells travel across skin?

So they are all my concerns I am sorry for sounding like an idiot I'm just so clueless about all of this. Thank you so much in advance. :)

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
I'd love to calm your fears about these events. First of all there is no possibility of pregnancy from anything you described and I'll explain why.
Sperm is very delicate. It dies within a few minutes of being in open air and it can damage easily when handled. Sperm cannot travel through fabric or over dry surfaces.
Your boyfriend must ejaculate into your vagina in order of pregnancy to occur.
I hope that helps.
