Male Reproductive System
It consist of Testis, scrotum, epididymis, vas deferens or sperm duct, seminal vesicles, prostrate gland, penis.
They are oval shaped organs, lie in abdominal cavity. There are 2 testes in male, make male sex cell called sperm and male sex hormone called testosterone.
Testes lie in small muscular pouch outside the abdominal cavity because sperm formation requires a lower temperature than temperature inside body.
The sperms formed in testes come out and go into a coiled tube called epididymis.

From epididymis sperms are carried by a long tube which join another tube called urethra coming from bladder.
It passes the sperm from man’s body into vagina of female’s body during mating.
