Sperm Motility: Sperm are happier with cooler temperatures (boxers are better than briefs and avoiding hot tubs/hot baths is helpful). Also if you are trying to get pregnant, skipping days between intercourse allows the man's sperm count to recover.

That Hits Most: Well, you have excluded the most common methods. The only thing i might add is timing. Sex too often depletes the sperm and can force immature sperm into battle. Too long between sessions can also affect sperm. I would suggest no more often than once a day, but at least once a week. You may also want to have your sperm evaluated to see if there is a motility issue.
