Solution

Human male reproductive system:-

The human male reproductive system comprises testes, epididymis, vas deferens, Cowper’s glands, prostate gland and penis.

1. Testes

  • Testes produce male gametes and sperms.
  • To maintain the temperature 2–3°C lower than the body temperature, the scrotum is located outside the body cavity.

2. Epididymis

  • The epididymis stores sperms temporarily.

3. Vas deferens

  • Each epididymis continues further as a sperm duct or vas deferens.

4. Seminal vesicles

  • The seminal vesicles produce a secretion which is responsible for the transport of sperms.

5. Prostate gland

  • It is a bilobed structure which surrounds the urethra.
  • It pours an alkaline secretion into the semen.

6. Cowper’s glands

  • These are two small ovoid glands.
  • They open into the urethra.
  • Its secretion serves as a lubricant.

7. Penis

  • The urethra passes through the penis.
  • It carries either urine or semen at a given time.
