The male reproductive system consists of the following parts:
- Testes: These are a pair of small-sized, oval-shaped, pinkish colored structures present in a thin-walled skin pouch called scrotal sac or *******. It protects the sperms against relatively high body temperature.
- Epididymis: Epididymis is about 6 metres long highly coiled tube present on the superior pole of each testis.
- Vasa deferentia (Seminal ducts): A vas deferens is a long, narrow tubular structure which starts from the tail of the epididymis
- *****: It is a long cylindrical, erectile copulatory organ. It forms the external genitalia of males. The tip of the ***** is highly sensitive and is known as the glans *****.
Accessory *** glands of male: These include a pair of seminal vesicles, a prostate gland and a pair of Cowper or bulbourethral glands.
The urethra also has mucus-secreting glands in its lining.
Semen or seminal fluid: The secretion of accessory *** glands and mucus are added to sperms to form seminal fluid or semen.
