Dr Shettles, author of the book ‘How To Choose The Sex Of Your Baby, is of the belief that the type of sperm had some inherent differences. Via research carried out, he discovered that the boy sperm is faster, smaller and weaker than its female sibling. The female sperm on the other hand are stronger and can live longer in the human body.
According to Dr Shettles, position comes into focus when trying for a boy child. Deep penetration is highly recommended as it gives the boy sperm a head start. So to conceive a boy, make love in positions that allows deep penetration because the closer to the cervix the sperm are released the faster it finds the egg and one recommended position is the doggy style, as it allows for deep penetration. Standing up and straddling are also recommended sex positions.
