Does sperm die if it hits air?

Question Posted Tuesday June 15 2010, 9:45 pm

My girlfriend and I were fooling around a few weeks ago and she let me finish ON her vagina area. She's a virgin and hasn't wanted me to pop her cherry yet so we always do stuff like that without having sex. Plus we so totally don't want a baby because we're young.

Anyway, she had told me that sperm dies when it hits air. Something about oxygen kills sperm or something. I'm not really sure. I'll be honest, I didn't really care at the time because it was in the heat of the moment and you know how that is.

So, today, she calls me and is freaking out and panicking. She said she just read online some place that sperm doesn't die when it hits air. I mean, we've done this thing a lot the past couple of months and so I didn't know why she suddenly looks it up online. I asked her why she was so worried and now she's all being like her period is late. So...

...Does sperm die when it his air or not?

sperm can last twentyfour hours in the air. it is acctually still a pretty high risk that she could be pregnant. if any pre ejaculation fluid or cum got within the lips and was close to the vaginal hole its possible for the sperm to get to the egg, especially if when she washed of the fluids she forced water up herself or with her fingers because that most times pushes sperm up farther instead of washing it out. if you dont want children or an std use a condom any time there is naked body contact when there is sexual arousal. good luck i'll be crossing my fingers for ya'

No, sperm does not die if it hits air. In fact, it could live for several days in oxygen.
However, it's pretty unlikely for her to be pregnant if the sperm didn't actually go in her vagina.
Just wait and see if she gets her period soon. If not, I guess the best thing would be to take a pregnancy test.

she is not pregnant unless she poked herself with sperm on her hand.Sperm does die when it touchs air.If her cherry isnt poped then i dont think she can get pregnant but she can have her cherry popped by riding horses or bikes etc sex isnt the only thing that can pop her cherry.its good that your not having sex because you dont think your ready to risk to have a baby
