Draw a labelled diagram of the human male reproductive system. With the help of this diagram, describe the working of human male reproductive system ?

Answer :

The human male reproductive system consists of:

(i) Testes – These are main reproductive organs in male. They are located outside the abdominal cavity in scrotum. The testes produce male germ cells called sperms. It also produces male sex hormones called testosterone.


(ii) Scrotum – It is a muscular pouch which houses the testes. It is present outside the abdominal cavity and maintains a lower temperature than the normal body temperature.


(iii) Epididymis – It is a coiled tube which stores the sperms temporarily.


(iv) Vas Deferens - It is a long tube which carries the sperms from epididymis to another tube called urethra.


(v) Seminal vesicles and prostate gland – The secretion of seminal vesicles and prostate glands pass out along with sperms. These secretions provide a fluid medium for the movement of sperms.


(vi) Penis - It is an organ which passes the sperms from the man's body into the vagina in the women's body during mating.
