As a male im in the same boat right now and a little paranoid that I my suffer performance anxiety.
Im absolutely amazed that the most logical and natural solution has not been recommended. Is it not aloud?
I intend to take my wife in to give a, helping hand. Pun intended.
If I was an IVF baby id be much more comfortable knowing I was not the result of my father getting hot and sweaty with himself. As much as kids hate the thought of their parent's doing the nasty, I think its by far the lesser of 2 evils.
Im amazed that its not just common practice and expected that the process be shared by both parent's. Its not like its a sperm bank paid donation...

I am shocked to hear your surprise that most men give their sperm sample unaided.
You say you, "intend to take my wife in to give a helping hand" - this, on the day of egg collection when your wife is possibly under sedation is asking and expecting a bit much, not to mention extremely selfish. More fool your wife!
The expectation of your wife, whilst recovering from the effects of anaesthetic, to relieve you is shocking. I'm struggling to see how you can "perform" with your wife in both her condition and in a clinical environment.
I understand it can be a pressurised situation for men but perhaps you can take advice from other men who come prepared on the day. The other man on the forum said he, "focused on why he had to do it and what he felt for his wife" to help - perhaps you too should do the same.
I wish your wife and you luck.
