Re: Sperm survival in toilet water. It mentioned that sperms cannot live when the temperature is lower than 68 and higher than 97. I have also read somewhere that in moist places sperms last longer. So, in places like water (toilet water, bath tub) where the temperatures are usually room temperature and the medium is moist (because of water)…
Is there sperm in the water?
First of all, there is no reason to think there was sperm in the water unless you knew a male had ejaculated into the toilet and did not flush. Even if a man did ejaculate into the toilet at some point, there is no way the sperm would be able to impregnate someone.

Can sperm live in cold water?
Although sperm won’t live very long in cold water, they may survive for up to a few hours in hot or warm water since they thrive in wet and warm environments. It isn’t usually easy to become impregnanted simply by being in close proximity to semen, but a woman who is already naked and aroused may run a greater risk.
What happens to semen in water?
From this perspective, nothing unusual happens to semen in water, since in most cases it is already basically there. Human semen is typically a combination of water, sperm, and proteins, though, and one of the main impacts of added water is an upset of this balance.
Is sperm and semen the same thing?
Semen and sperm are kinda like squares and rectangles. Sperm is a part of semen, but semen isn’t a part of sperm. Semen, also called ejaculate or cum, is the whitish fluid that comes out of the penis when a person comes — well, usually, but not always.
What happens to sperm in water?
Semen is made up of 90% water, so nothing unusual happens to semen in water. Sperm usually won’t survive cold water, but protection should still be used for sexual activity that takes place in water. Sperm cells in water may die within a few minutes or continue living for several hours.
Can sperm go through water?
It is not likely that tiny sperm could travel through the vast area of water that would fill a pool, bathtub, or hot tub to reach the vagina and result in pregnancy. If ejaculation occurred in plain warm water, sperm could survive for a few minutes.
What is the water temperature of human semen?
Human semen is typically a combination of water, sperm, and proteins, though, and one of the main impacts of added water is an upset of this balance. Sperm generally thrive best in water that is approximately body temperature, or 98.6°F (37°C). They can survive in water that is slightly warmer or slightly colder, but not always.
