MALE GENITAL SYSTEM
The organs of the male genital system are the testicles (male gonads), a duct system (vas deferens, ejaculatory duct and urethra), accessory sex glands (prostate, bulbourethral gland and seminal vesicles) and various support structures including the scrotum. and the penis. The testicles (male gonads) produce sperm and secrete hormones (testosterone). The duct system transports and stores sperm, assisting in maturation and driving it abroad. Semen contains sperm plus the secretions of the accessory sex glands.
