Can sperm survive in a hot shower?

Subsequently, one may also ask, do sperm die in the shower?

Water kills sperm In water, sperm are immediately no longer able to move because their fluid mixes too much with the water. They also absorb water and burst. They can only survive for a few seconds. This means that a woman can only become pregnant in the water or in the shower if you have sexual intercourse.

at what temp do sperm die? In specimens of semen kept at 37 degrees C sperm lose their motility and viability. If kept at 4 degrees C they retain their viability but lose their motility from so-called thermal shock. The best temperature to keep semen in order to preserve sperm motility is 20 degrees C.

Keeping this in consideration, will a hot shower kill sperm?
