Does sperm die when it hits air?
Sperm can not live in open air. However; sperm when ejaculated are not in open air. The ejaculate fluid (semen) protects the sperm. So long as the sperm remain wet and wit…hin the seminal fluids, it is possible for them to live two to three days. To keep them wet for that long would require ideal conditions. (proper humidity, no contact with drying agents, avoidance of air flow, etc) Under normal circumstances; seminal fluids dripped onto the human body or onto bed sheets will dry up. This may take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour (mostly depending on humidity and contact with other surfaces). Once the seminal fluids are dry; the sperm inside have been exposed fully to open air, and are dead.
Sperm does not die immediately upon contact with the air, but itdoes need a body to live in or else it will die relatively soonafter being exposed If kept warm and semi-lubric…ated at body temperature (like on theskin or in a warm test tube), sperm remain motile(= alive) forseveral hours. Inside the female reproductive tract, they can live for up to 3-7days. Sperm are very sensitive to temperature and moisture and willeventually die outside the body, but since each ejaculate maycontain as many as 750 million sperm, and it only takes one spermto result in pregnancy, precautions are essential. Ejaculation anywhere near the vagina, without condom use, should bea concern.

Sperm die pretty quickly in air, but not instantaneously.
no it does not die once it hits the air it can live for up to 4 hours in air no it can live for 3-7 days
Firstly, 'pre-cum' contains very little sperm. The majority of sperm are 'released' during ejaculation. Freshly ejaculated sperm are actually immature and cannot fertilise wit…hout being primed by chemicals present in the cervix of the female. Sperm has the ability to live inside the female body for several days, but outside the sperm will only live until the seminal fluid dries out or until they encounter some sort of toxin (e.g. spermicide which is found in some condoms). There is no answer in terms of a finite time, but say you deposit ejaculate into a cup, seal it and leave it, the sperm should still be alive in 24-48 (but weakened, and probably not able to fertilize). In the open, the sperm will die when the 'cum' or 'pre-cum' dries. In a freezer, under the right conditions, sperm will live for years, but when they are thawed will not be able to swim, and need to be implanted into an egg.
No it does not, it lives for at least 7 days.
An organism is a complex thing. Sperm were designed to make an exit swim their way to the fallopian tube and fertilize an ovum by becoming part of it. If it does not do this i…n the time it has given the energy and resistance it has against the outside environment it is destined to break down as it is not complex enough to take on board food or do the repairs necessary to maintain itself.
Sperm is fragile and dries/dies quickly (MINUTES) in open air. However, sperm may live longer in moist areas such as a wet towel or used condom.
Answer . no, sperm will not dye right away from touching the air

no, it can actually live for 3-7 days before it dies

Not immediately, but sperm dies when it dries up.
No. Sperm can live for several hours outside the female body depending on the environment.
