In brief: In a specimen cup
For semen analysis the andrologist gets the best sample if you ejaculate into a specimen cup.
This can be done in a private collection room at a fertility clinic, or you can collect at home and bring the cup in within 45 mins - 1 hour, keeping it at body temperature on the way. For men unable to collect by masturbation, you can use a non-spermicidal condom for intercourse if it's ok with the lab.
