Can Sperm Go Through Lycra Material
Here are some ...: It's possible to slip through the micro-spaces between the fibers, but would be not viable enough to swim due to lacking nutritional support of semen for their living on. And the odd to conceive under such scenario should be almost zero. If worrying about pregnancy, do HPT soon after missing the regularly expected period and repeat it in 1 wk if the 1st is (-) and still in doubt. Ask Doc timely.. ...Read more
Only the best!: Very, very, very unlikely - but every now and then we have a Superhero who can do unbelievable things. If this is one of your sex partner's sperm, anything can happen!

Precum: Pre-ejaculate or precum is a clear, colorless viscous fluid that comes from special glands in the penis called Cowper's glands. Precum occurs before ejaculation so there is no to few sperm in it. The amount of fluid is small and contains little sperm and it is unlikely that there would be enough to soak through your jeans or boxers or other fabric. ...Read more
Can you become pregnant with clothes on? Can sperms travel through moisture created due to vaginal fluids and semen?
Do gloves count?: If you only wore gloves while engaging in unprotected sex, then I'm sure you could get pregnant. However, I suspect you're asking about keeping your underwear on.

Can sperm travel through clothes such as lace panties, slacks, and male briefs and impregnate you?
Yes: Yes it is possible. Pants less likely but possible transmission through undergarments. There are reports of hot tub pregnancies as well due to sperm in the water. Remember it only takes one! if the liquid soaks through the fabric and comes in contact with the normal moisture of the genital tract, a continuous conduit is available for sperm travel. Young people are so fertile, be careful. ...Read more
NO: If sperm could go though an unbroken condom they would not be very effective for contraception. Condoms are designed to not only protect against pregnancy but also sexually-transmitted viral and bacterial infections and those microbes are much smaller than sperm. That said, condoms don't work 100% of the time as sometimes they break and occasionally sperm leak out from the base. ...Read more
Very, very hard: for a little sperm to make it through those barriers. The only way it would be remotely possible is if the clothing barriers were saturated with ejaculate/ pre-ejaculate & pressed up against the introitus.
