How To Conceive A Boy #1: Positions Please
Dr Shettles believed deep penetration was important to give the boy sperm a head start. With less difference to travel, the boy sperm would be able to outswim the girl sperm, and find the egg. The Shettles method claims that to improve your chances of conceiving a boy, you should have sex in positions that allow for deep penetration. It may not sound very romantic, but the closer to the cervix the sperm are ejaculated, the more likely they are to find the egg. Here are some position which can help accomplish this:
The position most commonly mentioned during discussions of this nature, is doggy style. This position allows for deep penetration, and is touted by many as the optimum position in which to conceive a boy. You should kneel on all fours, and have your partner enter you from behind. You could also adjust this position so that you are kneeling or leaning over a raised surface, if you prefer.
Another position that allows for deep penetration, is sex standing up. Some people also believe boy sperm are given an advantage in this position, as they swim faster against gravity to reach the egg. For this position, your partner may be able to lift you up, or you prefer to lean against a wall. Either way, you will probably need something to lean or hold onto, you don’t want to end up in hospital after a sex fall.
