Each sperm would only contain half your genome, and another sperm picked
at random is astronomically unlikely to contain the other half that's
needed. A better way to preserve your DNA would be to just put your
toothbrush in a plastic bag. A even better way would be to have Alcor
freeze your entire brain with liquid nitrogen as that will preserve a lot
more than just DNA.
