There could still be some on the tip of your penis unless you washed it. Inserting it into a vagina afterwards as-is would run the same risk of pregnancy as pre-ejaculate would, unless of course birth control was used.

Old question, but I wanted to correct this grossly false information. Once it's dry, the sperm is dead and cannot be reanimated by inserting it into a vagina.
