It's safe!: It's totally safe if you want to be pregnant. If you don't, it's a really terrible idea.

NO!!!!: ...To get pregnant, your sperm needs to enter her vagina during or around the time she was ovulating. At times, there is the rare chance that "pre ejaculate" or "pre-cum as a slang" has some sperm cells in it, so please do not rely on the Pull-out method for Birth Control! You are playing with Fire, and you will eventually get burned!
