How do I bank my sperm for potential future parenting desires?

I'm 37 years old, single, in excellent health. Even though most of my friends are paired up and procreating, I haven't felt any particular desire to do so. I'm still living like I'm ten years younger.
There is a small possibility I might want to be a father in the future. Researchers now say guys have their own biological clocks. Our sperm ages as much as women's eggs do. I was thinking about banking some sperm just in case.
I have some extra cash, and my employer has a health spending account, so I thought I might do this. Has anyone done this before? What have been your experiences? Where did you go, how did you pick the place, how much did it cost, is there anything you'd do differently? And best of all, have you, or do you know anyone, who's made use of this banked sperm?
