You can not get pregnant if you give a guy a hand job, tissue off your hand, do a bunch of stuff, and eventually end up going to the bathroom and wipe yourself with your formally erotically charged hand – even if you aren’t holding a piece of toilet paper at the time.
Although you should really wash your hands after giving a guy a hand job. Semen gets sticky as it dries, and that’s really just unpleasant. Not the hand job. Hand jobs are fun and reasonably safe sex. What is unpleasant is failing to clean up the mess afterward… and the thought of people who apparently walk around all day without ever washing their hands (a running theme in the questions I receive.)
Explanation for why you can’t get pregnant by touching semen, practicing bad sex hygiene, and eventually going to the bathroom:
For semen to get you pregnant, it has to
- still be wet enough to support the sperm
- get into your vagina and through your cervix so that it can make friends with an egg.
Wiping off your hands with a tissue after sex is almost certainly going to remove most, or all, or the semen and sperm and dry up what’s left. Furthermore, if it didn’t, you’d probably end up wanting to wash your hands because of the sticky/tacky problem.
Even with the most cursory post-hand job cleanup, it’s extraordinarily unlikely that any sperm would still be alive several hours later . It’s even less likely that they would conspire to find their way into your body simply because you wiped yourself with the same hand after you peed.

Hey, im really thankful for what you two are doing by running this site.
I have a question, and I hope you give me an answer, because its really sensible.
I know you dont give personal reassurance but let me start off with this.
WE WERE FULLY CLOTHED, wearing underwear, and did NOT have vaginal intercourse, or any sort of direct contact involving our parts.
Can you get pregnant, if you are bordering on the fertile time of the month (Day 12),
And your boyfriend masturbates himself into your mouth, leaving no visible spillage anywhere,
Tho he then proceeds to clean himself up properly, sort out some paperwork lying on his desk.. and then he fingers you?
The time frame in which all this happened is about 15 minutes.
I understand it may sound silly, but I come from a very poor region of Asia, and am not well educated in these things.
Your site has helped me understand the risks better, thank you, and I hope you reply and keep up with the good work 🙂
(P.S I do check my email)
Can you get pregnant if a man ejaculates, FAR from his hand, does a whole lot of other things,
(In a short amount of time, and does NOT clean up with handwash of ANY sort, but instead only cleans up with a clean, dry towel.)
then fingers you with the same hand?
ASSUMING that it is during the most fertile time of a woman’s cycle?
So my boyfriend cummed on my stomach & we wiped it all away as fast as we could. Then i bent over & he humped me (without penetration) without his boxers on. & i had a thong & we didnt use a condom. is this possible for me to get pregnant?
can i get pregnant at 14 if my period only comes every 3 months & my last period was about 1 1/2 months ago?
Yes, just because your period is irregular does NOT mean you are not able to get get pregnant. It just means there’s no good way for you to tell when you are fertile so you should always assume that sex carries a pregnancy risk. (Which, realistically, you should do anyway.)
It’s extraordinarily unlikely
sorry i know you hate answering these questions but i gave my boyfriend a hand job which he did not come, and then he wanted to finger me and really couldnt get in by him self so i helped. I used the hand that was rarely on his dick and touch the outside of the vagina which i think i rubbed my hand after on the blanket. can i still get pregnant?
