Can precum cross the 2 layers of clothes and enter the vagina?

Unlikely but: It is unlikely, but did the clothes stay off all the time? It is had to answer accurately when all the details of an encounter are not known. Things happen in times surrounding those events which result in precum that affect the accuracy of our memories. If clothes stayed on completely throughout the entire encounter, chances are good that no sperm got near any egg.

Very unlikely: because the clothes act as a barricade.
