OCD - Spermotophobia - July 28th 2017, 09:57 AM

To add some context, I have OCD and a fear of sperm, gross I know but its legitimate and messes with my life alot. I had a nocturnal emission and while cleaning myself in the shower, I washed my hands and down there, and turned off the water and opened the shower door with the hand I cleaned with. It was still wet but didnt feel sticky or anything and all the soap was washed off. So ny question is, if I washed off the semen but my hand was still wet with water, do I have to worry about any contamination or semen spreading? Any reassurance would be appreciated, thank you

It's best not to over complicate things my man; sperm in itself is no more difficult to remove than grime or general dirt. Washing your hands with warm water (and/or soap) is More than effective to remove traces all traces of semen.

You have nothing to worry about!

I hate to say it dude, but pretty much every public doorknob you've ever touched probably had remnants of semen on it.
