Orgasm and Baby's Sex

    Q: Does orgasm during intercourse affect the baby's sex?

    A: This is a pregnancy myth. There is no scientific proof that orgasm can affect the baby's sex. This myth may come from the Talmud, according to which, "if the woman emits her semen first she will bear a male, and if the man emits his semen first, she will bear a female" (Leviticus 12:2).
