testis one of the two male reproductive glands, located in the scrotum, that produce sperm and the hormone testosterone
sperm male gamete or sex cell produced in the testes that unites with the ovum in the female to produce offspring
epididymis coiled duct on the top and at the side of the testis that stores sperm before emission
penis erectile tissue covered with skin that contains the urethra for urination and the ducts for secretion of seminal fluid (semen)
glans penis bulging structure at the distal end of the penis (glans = acorn)

vas deferens duct that carries sperm from the epididymis to the ejaculatory duct (vas = vessel; deferens = carrying away)
seminal vesicle one of two sac-like structures behind the bladder and connected to the vas deferens on each side; secretes an alkaline substance into the semen to enable the sperm to live longer
semen a mixture of the secretions of the testes, seminal vesicles, prostate, and bulbourethral glands discharged from the male urethra during orgasm (semen = seed)
ejaculatory duct duct formed by the union of the vas deferens with the duct of the seminal vesicle; its fluid is carried into the urethra
prostate gland trilobular gland that encircles the urethra just below the bladder and secretes an alkaline fluid into the semen (pro = before; stat = to stand)
bulbourethral glands pair of glands below the prostate, with ducts opening into the urethra, that adds a viscid (sticky) fluid to the semen
