A sperm can survive outside the body for three hours (i.e. in the skin)

In a controlled environment it will be okay for 4-6 hours. In the vagina sperm can live for 5 days. No sperm does not die immediately after touching skin.

Sperm dies when it is dry, it cannot live very long outside the body at all.

Healthy sperm may live up to five days.

It could take a long time it really matters what your skin texture.

It takes about 14 minutes for them to die as they surfuring and skin is peeling off slowly.

Most likely you will develop an abscess or skin infection but don't think you will die.

About one hour, depending on the surface though it could be longer or shorter.

well i think that the sperm can stay alive utill the sperm has met the egg then it will make a baby and the the sperm will die.

it will die in about 45 seconds because sperm is not ment to be exposed to oxygen for long periods of time...sperm has a short life span as it is

Yes, sperm will die when it is wiped on clothing. Unless the environment is right for sperm, the sperm will die.

There is little risk of the sperm on you making her pregnant as it does not take long for sperm to die out in the open, (a few seconds). however the stuff that is hiding inside your urethra is another story. While the risk is a lot smaller it does exist.

If you are fertile during the time you had sex. The sperm and egg had union and fertilized. Then you get pregnant. The egg will die like 3 days if it did not come into contact with a motile sperm.

Human sperm cells die quickly if they dry out. As long as they remain wet, however (as they would in a vagina), they can live for 24 to 48 hours.

Yes, sperm doesn't last long even during intercourse. So in Chlorine it dies instantly.

When they dry the die. If the temperature is room temperature and the air is moisture they are capable of life for few hours even.

noooo you definitely CAN'T die from eating sperm!

It can vary from several hours to quite possibly 5 days in the right conditions as well as the health of the sperm.

I've heard that if the sperm do no reach their target - the unfertilised egg within 3 days, they die

Sperm can live inside the female body for up to 5 days. Many of the sperm die off after 24 to 48 hours though.

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.

Until they dry out, get too hot or cold, or about 5 days.
