Sperm can not live in water. This is merely a myth.

  • Sperm will die when it comes into contact with air.
  • Sperm can live no longer than a few seconds in water.
  • Sperm lives for up to 5 days in a Womans body.

Ok so whoever answered ^ that is totally wrong. First of all sperm do NOT die when it comes into contact with air. That's the myth right there. Sperm can live up to 15 minutes sometimes once its outside of the body. Sperm die once you dry it. Sperm can live in water as well but not for too long, specially if there's chemicals involved. I only agree that sperm can live for up to 5 days in a Woman's vagina.
