Best Answer

Sperm cannot live long outside the body and the figures range from a few minutes to a couple hours. The bottom line is that when sperm dry up, they are definitely dead.

Sperm needs semen to transport it to the cervix where it uses the fluid to swim faster and protect itself from the acid environment. It cannot live outside the body more than a few minutes.
