We were fooling around and he got some on his hand then he fingered me. He told me not to worry because of well lemme just ask: Does sperm die when it hits oxygen? For real? Like you know this for a fact and would bet your life on it?
Don't allow him or anyone else to do that again. Keep an eye out for your period. Also, if he's had other partners before you, get checked for STDs in a couple month's time. Inserting his semen in your vagina in this way will transmit an STD if he has one. [ Kendra_Berri's advice column | Ask Kendra_Berri A Question ]

Sperm can live for a few minutes in any environment, the best thing to do is to make sure to wash your hands after you touch some sperm before touching a vagina.

enjoy your pregnancy test!

That is not a fact, that is a myth. Sperm can survive outside of the human body. Doctors have reported sperm outside of the body living for as long as several hours, depending on the environment.
It is certainly sensible to believe that sperm can survive for several minutes at least on someone's hands. Sperm can survive for days, inside a woman's body.
Sperm is not terribly hardy however: Washing your hands (or his, as the need arises) is very effective. Even drying them thoroughly on a towel is a reasonably effective approach.
