Doin’ It With Dr. V: Can Pre-Cum Get You Pregnant?

This week, I got a question from a sexy lady whose been hanging around some loose se(a)men. Bon voyage! But before she sets sail care-free, she’s wondering:

“I feel silly asking this, but when I’m having sex with my boyfriend, right before we begin, something comes out of his penis. I hesitate to call it pre-ejaculate, because after it leaks out we do it for a long time and he eventually comes. Do you know what this is? Does it have sperm in it?”

Puh-lease do not be embarrassed. Even the experts aren’t really sure how to answer some of your questions. As for Dr. V, I got you boo.I once dated a drip that had his own leaky faucet. Actually, he was more like the busted fire hydrant of pre-ejaculatin’ and I swear, he got wetter from foreplay than me!From your description, it sounds like that’s what’s up with your dude. FYI, pre-cum should be more watery than the stuff that comes out when he’s actually blowing up. Also, men can pre-ejac anywhere from a few droplets up to 5 milliliters of fluid. And it can happen any time the guy is really feelin’ it, so don’t let the term pre-ejaculate confuse you. It doesn’t come skipping out, holding hands with the big O. As long as things are hot, he can hose it down with some pre-cum.

Surprisingly enough, a guy can’t tell when pre-cum comes out because he doesn’t feel a particular sensation from the involuntary response. Most times you can’t tell when it’s going on because he’s already inside you. Keep in mind, men only fire a warning shot when they’re in position and turned on. But is he shooting blanks?

This is a highly debated topic and there’s no definitive proof if semen exists in pre-cum. Basically, its function is to lubricate you during naked fun and clear a path for the mini-hims, so some researchers have found that there’s nothing there but the wetness.

But this is serious biz and you should consider there are many other opinions on the subject. Some other researchers argue that in reality, pre-ejac can contain spermies that could get you pregnant. There’s just no way to tell if each particular load is potent. It’s suspected that if it does have sperm, they’ve just been hanging out in the dudes peen since his last recent ejaculation, waiting for their big chance. And how are you going to keep tabs on all the times when he has wad wipe-outs without you? However, pre-ejaculate that does have sperm has been found to have less of those little swimmers than your average splooge. With only a few million sperm in pre-ejaculate, instead of the usual 100 million during orgasm, pregnancy is less likely, but not impossible.

For safety’s sake, some peeps recommend that if he pees before you have sexy times, all those little bros will get flushed out and render the pre-cum semen-free. But there’s no guarantee. And that won’t prevent the potential to spread an STD, so consider yourself warned! There is one way you can protect yourself from both the risk of STDs and pregnancy: condoms!

Now, as for the pre-e, consider it a reward for all your hard work! Just like how you can tell when a woman is turned on, he wouldn’t be wet if you weren’t driving him wild.

Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex. My deepest desires have happily lead me on many adventures in the sack, but they have also, sadly, made me one of my gyno’s most valuable players. But I’ve lived to tell the tale(s)! So, from time to time, I will dish the dirt on everything from getting freaky to getting freaked out. And please, if you have a question, email me. You know I love to read your smut too!
