Pregnancy risk through spooning?

By Anonymous July 20, 2019 - 6:06am

I cuddled with a guy in bed, we were both fully clothed. He was wearing exercise mesh shorts with no underwear and I was wearing track pants with underwear. He was the big spoon, hugging me from behind (means his penis is facing my butt) while we lay in bed to sleep. There was no sex involved. If he had a wet dream where there was ejaculation and the front of his pants got wet, is there any risk of pregnancy for me? Is it possible for the semen to travel through his pants and into my pants and underwear to impregnate me?

Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

May I ask, did you have sex education at school? If not, it's a good idea to study on your own so you know how sex and the human body works. You can read books on this or search our EmpowHER site. This will eliminate a lot of stress than the unknown can cause.

A woman cannot get pregnant unless she has unprotected sex (intercourse) with ejaculation that enters the vagina. The highest chance for this is during ovulation.

So, a pregnancy cannot occur from the scenario you describe.
