Yup when my dr precribed clomid for me he told me the do's and dont's and he couldn't reiterate enough about absolutely no saliva

 Saliva is very alkaline and will kill sperm for sure. I never liked preseed. It made sex very unhot and was goopy and oocky.

I have read this too and know for a fact that saliva was involved in 3 out of my 3 pregnancies. I am having trouble conceiving this time and now am worried about the saliva.....this can be so hard.

YES!  Its aweful for sperm as well as many over the counter lubricants.

The only few you can use is PreSeed, or water.  Finding ways to increase your own CM would be better.  I have heard of ppl using eggs, but I dont' suggest it.
