Rico is spot on and definitely knows his arboreals.

With that said, I just wanted to note that a couple people are working on a way to genetically test sheds to sex babies. This issue with this is that it may not be cost effective and that not all sexual markers are easily differentiated.

There are people working on it, and if they do work out a cost effective method it will be available this year. You'd probably have to have the seller pay to have them sexed or pay for it yourself and keep paying until you find a pair - not the ideal situation. Also, with the babies being sexed you'll probably start to see a bigger differential in prices between the sexes, the same as you see in ball pythons and boas.
