Nice quiz but uncontent with the numbers. Question 2: there should be AT LEAST 20 millions but it's not the average. Normospermie can be anything between 20-150 Millions! Question 4: They can definitely live up to 7 days in the cervix. @kikidawn: Links? Though most of the "precum" will come from the Gl. bulbourethrales (Cowper), there can be enough sperms involved for fertilization.

I read recently that new studies show that there actually aren't any sperm in 'pre-cum'. Don't know how true that is though.

Sperm can only live for only 72 hours, whether in a woman, man, or in a tissue. Anyone else remember that from health class?

i had a friend in high school who was terrified of sperm. she thought semen could like soak through her skin and get her pregnant. like if it landed on her stomach, she was so sure. once, she even bought a pregnancy test after her and her bf had a heavy makeout session. p.s. she was a virgin!!!!! ha. now that i think about it, she probably has some kind of psychological problem.
