Ok I haven't been on here in like 2 weeks neways I just wanted 2 thank every1 4 giving me their point of view on my last post. Well me n my bf thought about everything! Like 100 times lol we could have a baby n afford it only because he has saved up money since he was 16 when he started 2 work which is a good thing! But as much as we want a child we've decided 2 chill out and wait since we only get to have our teenage years once in a life time right? But neways let me get 2 my stupid question LOL! Ok I am in health this semester. We are learning about the male and female body parts. Ok neways this guy asked in class if it was true that if a guy came on sheets or anything like that shorts hand hair ect. The nut will die in 3 seconds because its not entering the va___al fluids or watever my teacher agreed with him n said he was correct! I told my boyfriend about this n he didn't belive it so he talked to his health techer about it n told him about my class! Neways his techer said that it wasn't true! So like now I duno n like I wanna know just 2 know! I know this sounds stupid but its sumthing that now is floating in my train of thought if any1 know or has an idea please comment.

Your health teacher is wrong, your b/f health teacher is right. Sperm will die quickly but not that quickly. In fact pregnancy occasionally occurs from contact that doesn’t involve s_x --example: if he gets sperm on his hand and then touches you, it is rare but not impossible for you to get pregnant. Sperm do die quickly when they are out in the open, but under the right temps and such it can last for awhile, I believe -If I remember correctly-- up to 3-4 hours (although normally it is shorter then that). If the sperm are in the right temp, moisture, pH, etc. they can live for a few days (right conditions w/in the v____a/uterus can allow them to live for 3-5 days. A lot of ppl also think that sperm die when they hit the air but this is completely wrong (if you think about it when men donate their sperm, the sperm ends up in the air and doesn't die right away). Anyways, it amazes me that you have a health teacher who is teaching you guys this stuff and doesn't know her facts. Sperm do not die w/in 3 sec when they hit the air/other surfaces. The amount of time it takes depends on the temp, moisture content, pH, etc of whatever it is the sperm end up on. Sperm don't die in 3 sec. though just from hitting clothing, skin, etc. (by the way I have a Cell biology degree and have actually used animal sperm to watch conception on a microscope, we obtained and then placed the sperm on the scope and they lived -were moving around- for quite a while on microscope slides. So, I know for a FACT that they don't die from air or w/in a few seconds).

By the way I think that you and your b/f made a really smart and responsible choice in waiting a while to have a child --as you said you only get your teen yr's once.
