Anyone know?

Ok so me and my husband are using the "shettle's method" to try and conceive a boy. (i know its not accurate but we're giving it a go). Anyway for a boy we're not supposed to have sex until Aug. 22 thru Aug 24. Weeeeelllll last night we had a bit of a slip up after we'd had a few glasses of wine. So my question is does anyone know how long sperm can survive? We want a boy (yes we'll take a baby happy and healthy PERIOD but we're trying this anyway) and i know the girl sperm lasts longer but im not sure HOW long lol
