sperm does not live very long at all outside of the body - typically seconds up to a minute or two maximum.

Sperm is actually in your semen - the fluid produced when you ejaculate - have an orgasm. Pre-cum itself does not contain sperm, but the closer you get to ejaculation then semen can be produced before the main orgasm.
