If I leave semen in tap water (not distilled water), does the seminal fluid in semen protects sperm cells from coming into contact with water molecules? Is the role of semen that to protect the sperm cells from contact with external agents like water? Because I know semen protects sperm cells in the acidic vaginal environment, so I thought semen might do the same in external environment like water? Is semen soluble in water and leave the sperm cells to fend for themselves in water?
