The organs and structures of the male reproductive system give men the ability to fertilise a woman's egg ovum to produce a baby. The scrotum, or scrotal sac. This is the loose bag of skin which hangs under the main body cavity between the upper thighs. It is divided into two, and each side contains one testicle testis.

The male reproductive system

Sperm - Wikipedia

The testes are the primary reproductive organs and generate sperm cells through a process called spermatogenesis. The glands of the male reproductive system produce sperm and seminal fluid. The prostate gland, the seminal vesicles, and the bulbourethral glands contribute seminal fluid to semen, which carries and protects the sperm. During sexual intercourse, semen moves through a series of ducts to deliver the semen directly into the female reproductive system. The testes or testicles are the male gonads and sit below the penis within a sac called the scrotum. They are cm long, 2. The testes generate sperm, the male sex cells, as well as testosterone and other sex hormones.

Male Reproductive System

The male reproductive system includes the penis, scrotum, testes, epididymis, vas deferens, prostate, and seminal vesicles. The penis and the urethra are part of the urinary and reproductive systems. The scrotum, testes testicles , epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, and prostate comprise the rest of the reproductive system. The penis consists of the root which is attached to the lower abdominal structures and pelvic bones , the visible part of the shaft, and the glans penis the cone-shaped end. The opening of the urethra the channel that transports semen and urine is located at the tip of the glans penis.
Sperm is the male reproductive cell , or gamete , in anisogamous forms of sexual reproduction forms in which there is a larger, "female" reproductive cell and a smaller, "male" one. Animals produce motile sperm with a tail known as a flagellum , which are known as spermatozoa , while some red algae and fungi produce non-motile sperm cells, known as spermatia. Sperm cells form during the process known as spermatogenesis , which in amniotes reptiles and mammals takes place in the seminiferous tubules of the testes. The spermatocytes then undergo meiosis , reducing their chromosome number by half, which produces spermatids. The spermatids then mature and, in animals, construct a tail, or flagellum, which gives rise to the mature, motile sperm cell.
