Question: I was giving my boyfriend a lap dance and I had nothing on. He only had boxers on. His genitals were in contact with mine through the fabric but only for seconds. He said he never ejaculated at that time. Could I have gotten pregnant from this?
I can’t imagine there being any pregnancy risk from this situation.
Here’s why: He was wearing boxers so even if he did ejaculate (or emit pre-ejaculate), sperm don’t swim through clothes. That said, if you two aren’t ready to possibly become pregnant, then use birth control. And a highly effective form!
He can wear a condom during sex play and you could consider using birth control, too (such as the IUD, or birth control implant, pill, patch, shot or vaginal ring). That way, if your sex play gets a little friskier than anticipated, you’re covered as best as you can be.
