Re: quick question

If you are referring to as trying to prevent pregnancy then no. Granted washing with soap and water will kill them off.
But if you are trying to wash sperm out of the vagina no a hot shower will not help.

Re: quick question

In what way do you mean?

If you mean you get some semen on your hand go take a shower then wash with soap and water. Then yes the shower will kill the sperm.

If you mean that if you ejaculate in a girl and she goes to take a shower and washes her self out. Then no a shower is not a viable means of birth control.

Re: quick question

I think what he means is do hot showers lower your sperm count. I guess the answer is yes and no. The testicles do not function as well when they are overheated. That is why they hang in the thin walled scrotum where it is cooler. So technically, when you take a hot shower, the testicles are not happy which is the reason they hang so low afterwards but I really don't think any length of time in the shower is really going to affect your sperm count at all. Maybe if you sat in a hot tub all your life then you'd see some difference.
