No. Sperm does not live on your hands or arms whether or not you wash them.

No as soon as you wash or wipe your hands and they are dry sperm is no longer living!

sperm die when they dry or have been washed off with atleast water, they are very fragile, but they are capable of staying alive on oxygen! (makes them weak though)

Most likely. Sperm can only live (outside of a womans body) for about 45 minutes.

No, sperm can live outside the body on a surface for about a hour and even longer in the vagina.

Sperm ejaculated into a woman's vagina can live 5 days or possibly even longer.

The only thing that matters is if the girl has reached puberty, and a live sperm cell enters her vagina at the right time, and makes it to an egg to fertilize it. Sperm - dried or not- on your HANDS- no. On/in your vagina, not likely, but possible. It is not necessary that sperm reach the vagina during intercourse (sex), only that sperm DOES reach the vagina. Wash your hands thoroughly, and use birth control if you do not intend to become pregnant- or do not have sex.
