Can you get pregnant in a hot tub if you’re not having sex?

No. Sperm can live outside the body for a short time under the right conditions. However, the temperature in a hot tub is too high for sperm to survive. Even in a bath tub at body temperature, water is not a good element for sperm to survive in. Not only are sperm dispersed in water, but they’re separated from the fluids that protect them. Also, it’s extremely unlikely that water containing live sperm would get into the vagina.
