The male reproductive system is responsible for generating, storing, and transporting the genetic material contained in the sperm cells, or spermatozoa.The chief organs include the testicles (or testes), the epididymides, the vas deferens, the ejaculatory duct, the urethra, and the penis. Auxiliary organs include the bulbourethral (Cowper's) glands, the prostate gland, and the seminal vesicles. Spermatozoa (sperm cells) contain the chromosomes which will combine with those of the ovum or egg (produced by the female reproductive system), to form the embryo of a new human. These spermatozoa are generated within the testicles and stored within the epididymides. During sexual arousal, a fluid created by the seminal vesicles and the prostate gland combines with the sperm cells to create semen, which is carried through the urethra and out of the opening, or meatus, in the end of the erect penis. When the semen is deposited in the female vagina, the spermatozoa swim through the uterus to the fallopian tube, where, one, or more, may fertilize an egg. or ovum.
