Male Reproductive System
Sexual Health Male reproductive system. The main reproductive organs of the male body are the testes, which produce sperm and also male hormones, in the form of testosterone. The male reproductive system also includes the external genitals — the penis and the scrotum — and the internal structures, including the prostate gland, the vas deferentia plural for the 2 vas deferensthe urethra, and the seminal vesicles.
The paired oval testes, also known as the male gonads, hang in the scrotal sac. Usually the right testis hangs higher than the left one by about organ cm.
At the back of the olive-shaped body of each testis is a cap formed by the many coils of a foot long tube called the epididymis. The function of the epididymis is to collect the immature males from the testis. As the sperm make their long journey through the epididymis they become mature sperm.
Joined to the epididymis is the vas deferens — sex thick walled tube which transports sperm from the epididymis up to the prostate gland. Michelle preston naked section of the vas deferens that is above the testis can be felt through the loose part of the scrotum.
