How long do sperms stay alive?

Just a question, how long does a sperm live in air?

After ejaculating on my hands and fingers, how long will it survive in the air?

Consider this situation, my finger has a little semen. THe semen dried. I move around the room, touching various things. I fixed the bedsheets and I blow my nose.

Is the sperm still alive?

Also, how effective is handwashing with soap and warm water at killing sperm?

Re: How long do sperms stay alive?

As soon as the semen dries, the sperm are dead.

Soap and hot water kills the sperm almost instantly.

If you keep the semen at body temperature and wet the sperm can live a few days, but if you let it cool off or get too hot, the sperm will die.

On your fingers, sperm will live a short time.
