Hello Customer!
Cocaine is not transmitted through intercourse therefore a drug test for the non-user should not be positive for this reason. Cocaine has been studied in invivo studies and the semen concentration is about 60-80% of blood for the first 24 hours. However, semen cocaine or blood contact through sex cannot be established or shown so this will not hold up as a reason for a positive test.
Good Luck
Hope this helps!
