fraternal twins two infants born from two separate egg cells
glans penis sensitive tip of the penis
identical twins two infants resulting from one fertilized egg

penis male external organ of reproduction
perineum external region between anus and scrotum in the male
prepuce foreskin
prostate gland exocrine gland at the base of the urinary bladder
scotum external sac that contains the testes
semen spermatozoa sperm cells and seminal fuid (prostate and seminal vesicle secretions)
seminal vesicles paired sac-like male exocrine glands that secrete fluid into the vans deferens
