Question: My boyfriend and I were fooling around yesterday. I got to make him come but it was orally. About 30 minutes later we were fooling around again and he did not enter me but he would “tease” me around my area opening. I’m afraid that I could get pregnant from this even though he did not enter me at all. I need advice.

Yes, you are correct: there is a possibility for pregnancy because after your boyfriend ejaculates there are very likely sperm still inside his urethra. When he puts his penis around your vaginal opening, it’s possible for those sperm to swim out of his urethra and toward your vaginal entrance.

If you are not using condoms or other reliable forms of birth control (such as the birth control pill, patch, shot, ring, implant, or IUD) then you could become pregnant from this kind of sex. If you two have decided not to become pregnant yet, I’d encourage you to engage in safer kinds of sex play and/or consider using condoms or other forms of birth control. You can learn more about reliable methods of birth control on Planned Parenthood’s website which is plannedparenthood.com.
