A 23-year-old female asked:

If someone washes his hands after masturbation with water, are his hands now free of any sperm? if a girl touches a surface (that is also touched by the boy with wet hands after masturbation) and insert a finger inside her vagina can she be pregnant?

It depends on the thoroughness of the washing. The last part of your question- the chances are near 0 but not impossible .It depends on the surface and the time elapsed. Sperms do not survive more than 10 minutes outside.
