The male’s reproductive system produces something called a sperm; a tadpole like cell. It is said that when a male is to ejaculate, there are about 40 million to 600 million sperms are released at that one time. In that 40 million to 600 million sperms only about 5 million to 20 million are fertile, and the rest are infertile. Epididymis is another part of the males’ reproductive system. This is where the sperms get its nutrients and grows to be mature. It’s made up of smooth muscle cells; tube that is 20 feet in length on the posterior or the back side of each testis which are tightly coiled.

This is where the sperm is moved along their smooth muscular wall. Ejaculatory duct is a short passageway that was made up by the vas deferens and duct of seminal vesicles. This is where the ducts empty the sperm and fluid into a single urethra; its measurement is just less than 1 inch. Urethra is another part to the male reproductive system; the male urethra extends from the urinary bladder to the tip of the penis (measures up to 6 to 8 inches in distance). In the male urethra, it can serve as a reproductive and urinary system. It transports the sperm and urine out of the body.
