A 21-year-old male asked:

Can regular tap water kill sperm on hands without soap? will it still cause pregnancy if touched the vagina after washing and hands still wet?

Unprotected exposure: While unlikely, this could certainly result in pregnancy. Presumably you understand that the possibility of introducing sperm to the vagina introduces the possibility of pregnancy.
