3.2 Summary Of Responses To Call For Faq Answers

Overall, the experience on misc.kids and
misc.kids.pregnancy has tended to be more positive
than negative. Overall, the responses to date
indicate that around 70 percent of all "tries" or
outcomes resulted in a "success -- a baby of the
desired gender! This is a small and definitely NON-
random sample, and all *could* have been due to
chance, of course; nevertheless this unscientific
survey seems to indicate that Shettles' claims have
some validity.

By far the most commonly used method was the timing
of intercourse. Nearly everyone who responded used
this method, and most had successful results with it.

The second-most common technique was the position
and/or depth of intercourse, which was also
successful according to responses -- in fact, the
position/depth was the most successful technique of
all, proportionally, in obtaining the desired baby!

The other Shettles techniques were tried less than
five times, so generalizations have to be more
cautious. However, all three techniques produced
more successful than unsuccessful outcomes.

Here are some summary statistics:

22 = Total individuals responses to date
27 = Total "outcomes" -- i.e., total of all
conceptions by those who tried any of
the Shettles techniques, or any other
sex-selection technique(s)
NOTE: Some folks who responded hadn't tried
Shettles; some tried Shettles multiple
times; and some reported friends' Shettles
tries! Therefore, all the statistics below
are based on number of outcomes, not number
of people.
22+ 5 = Number of outcomes that were successful
(a baby or babies of the sex wanted)
+ number of outcomes that were
unsuccessful
20+ 6 = Number of successful + unsuccessful
outcomes including the following
Shettles method: timing of
intercourse
1+ 1 = Number of successful + unsuccessful
outcomes including the following
Shettles method: acidic / alkaline
douching
7+ 1 = Number of successful + unsuccessful
outcomes including the following
Shettles method: position of
intercourse / depth of penetration
4+ 1 = Number of successful + unsuccessful
outcomes including the following
Shettles method: orgasm / no orgasm
for woman
5+ 0 = Number of successful + unsuccessful
outcomes including the following
Shettles method: hot bath / boxers
for man
1+ 0 = Number of successful + unsuccessful
outcomes including the following
Shettles method: coffee for man
