A member asked:

Can sperm still live on your fingers after it was wiped off with other objects, cleaned with hand sanitizer, and in a moist humid environment for more than 10 minutes? if so, how likely can a girl be pregnant after fingering with that same finger?

Not likely: Sperm must be introduced into the vagina of a woman for pregnancy to be possible. It's not likely sperm on your fingers would survive after being cleaned well with hand sanitizer. However, you mention other objects which raises concerns about hygiene. It's possible to transfer infectious agents into the woman's vagina this way. Please always be very careful with any sexual contact!
