  • yes...having sex while standing on 1 foot while doing the hokey pokey with a blue ribbon tied around his unit will ensure a boy...

    For girls make sure HE is standing on one foot whil you're doing the tango...don't forget the pink ribbon.

  • make sure for a boy you jump backwards 10 times once you finish the dance...for a girl make sure you do 3 cartwheels once you are finished with the dance

  • Okay so the other posters are not being very helpful are they? THere is no special way to have sex or thing to do to help conceive either girl or boy, but you can increase your chances by using the Shettles method. It basically goes on the theory that boy sperm swim faster, but girl sperm live longer and you baby dance based on that. Do a google search of Shettles method. It worked for both my kids. There are also some foods you can eat to change the PH of your body and that will effect which little sperm can make it through. None of these are guranteed, but they can't HURT your efforts.
