Is semen secretion normal?

Patient

Q: I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for 10 years. We live together so I wash his clothes and I have noticed more and more that his underwear has semen in them sometimes just a little and then other times there is more (like someone blew there nose in them). I do not know if men normally secrete semen randomly or if semen is secreted only during ejaculation or arousal...I am concerned for my health if there is a chance he may be having sex with someone else and felt it is important to check into. I have asked him and he reacted a little strange and said it happens to all men??? I know that it is not prostate because he recently had exam with urologist due to a separate issue. Please provide me with information on this issue so that I can determine if I need to take steps to ensure my safety.
