-inside a woman
-inside a condom
-'out in the air'
I am really curious!

How long does sperm live?

As far as I know its something like 4-7 days in a woman, not sure about the condom(not sure any tests have been done on this), but air not long at all an hour max probably.
Sorry I couldn't be any more help.

I think it depends on how 'accommodating the environment' but I have read up to 6 days inside a woman &
about an hour in a condom, similiar 'out in the air' I should think about an hour

I've always been told sperm usually lives up to 72 hours inside a woman.
