Male R.S.

Male Reproductive System definitions

Penis The organ of transfer of sperm to female. Used for fertilization or intercourse and urination.
Scrotum Pouch-like sac holding both testicles in a separate compartment that hang underneath the penis. Keeps the testicles a little below 98.6 degrees for ideal conditions for sperm production.
Testicles Egg shaped organs that hang outside the body in scrotum. Produce sperm cells and the male hormone testosterone.
Epididymis Located on top of each testicle where sperm mature and are stored. The sperm grow their tails here.
Vas Deferens Tube that extends from the lower end of each epididymis and connects with the urethra. Sperm travel through here.
Seminal Vesicles Secretes fluid to be mixed with the sperm to make them more mobile.
Prostate Walnut shaped gland that surrounds the urethra.
Ejaculatory Duct It is a short straight tube that passes into the prostate gland and opens into the urethra. It prevents the sperm and urine from mixing.
Urethra Located in the center of the penis. Tube that carries semen and urine to the outside of the body, but cannot carry both at the same time.
