Self discover and educate yourself through this beautifully designed male reproductive illustration.
How well do you know the male reproductive system? It is just as important to not only know your own anatomy as a woman it is equally important to know the male anatomy as well. Both the male and female bodies are incredible and educating ourselves with the intricacies helps us not only respect and love our own bodies, but that of our partners. ⠀
The penis has a long shaft that can vary in length and width and has an enlarged bulbous-shaped tip called the glans penis. Depending on if the male was circumcised or not the tip will either be protected by the foreskin or will be exposed. When males become sexually aroused, the penis becomes erect. Erection occurs because sinuses within the erectile tissue of the penis become filled with blood.⠀
The Testis are protected by the scrotum which is a pouch-like structure that hangs behind the penis. It holds and protects the testicles. It also contains numerous nerves and blood vessels. The scrotum reacts to temperature so during lower temperatures the Cremaster muscle contracts and pulls the scrotum closer to the body, while the Dartos muscle gives it a wrinkled appearance; in higher temperatures, the Cremaster and Dartos muscles relax to bring down the scrotum away from the body and less wrinkles appear.⠀
There is so much more to the male reproductive system that is not visible from the exterior and are rarely talked about, the internal genital organs.⠀
The epididymis are cupped against the testicles and act as a maturation and storage for sperm before they pass into the vas deferens, that carry sperm to the ampullary gland and prostatic ducts.⠀
The vas deferens (sperm duct) is a thin tube approximately 30 centimetres (0.98 ft) long that starts from the epididymis to the pelvic cavity. It carries the spermatozoa from the epididymis to ejaculatory duct.⠀
There are 3 accessory glands that provide fluids that lubricate the duct system and nourish the sperm. They are the seminal vesicles, the prostate gland, and the bulbourethral glands.⠀.
