Masturbation, sperm and possibility of pregnancy

May I request you to listen patiently to my fears?
I am a bachelor, male, aged 30. I do masturbation. I do it in the bathroom when at home and sometimes in the bed. How much is the possibility of anyone (female members of family) getting pregnant when they get in contact with the private parts unknowingly with unwiped semen (wet/dry) due to the spillage of semen in the bath room or in the bed room. Bed sheets/linen remain unwashed/unchanged for a time and others use the same toilet items like soap, towel (wet/dry), etc in the same bathroom which were used by me a time soon after masturbation.
When I come home, I sleep on the country mat (paai). The mats surface is spread with the oil due to viscous oil applied over the body for joint pains by my mother. The mats are stored together in the morning and there is possibility of mixing each other and no marking on the mats. So, the only option is to sleep on any mat, which is available at first hand. So, there is a possibility to sleep on the oiled mat (moisturized by the oil).
Doctors say sperm survives outside the body as long as it is wet or moisture.
My Question is: - Will the sperm survive on oil which is a moisture which may a haven for keeping the sperm cell alive by the emission at the night. Will anybody who uses/touches the mat, which is used by me, get pregnant if they touch their private parts soon after they had made contact to these mats?
Is the amount of sperm quantity present in the semen after masturbation the same as after wet dreams?
Question: Once ejaculated how long do sperm live in a hostile environment?
Answer: Unless sperm are deposited vaginally they are unlikely to survive very long. First, they are very temperature- dependent. It is well-known that when a gentleman brings a semen sample to a laboratory for semen analysis the technician prefers to view it within 30 minutes of ejaculation because the sperm stop moving in short order if not kept at body temperature. Second, if the sperm are not embraced by the nurturing vaginal fluids of a woman close to the time of her ovulation they die. Water and oil are particularly toxic.
Question: What influences the quantity of sperm present in the ejaculate in a normal male?
Answer: The number of sperm will vary with the number of days between ejaculations. It is thought that the maximum number occurs after three days of abstinence but no longer than a few weeks of abstinence. Furthermore, the number can vary with the circumstances of ejaculation. That is, does ejaculation occur due to masturbation or a nocturnal emission or intercourse? In each of these situations the various neurological components that make up what we call ejaculation may be engaged a bit differently.
