Learn more about the male reproductive system using these anatomy diagrams in high resolution! A bunch of diagrams of male reproductive system are available to help you understand the male reproductive system. In a simple definition, the male reproductive system consists of a number of sex organs that play a role in the process of human reproduction. These organs are located on the outside of the body and within the pelvis. Check out the first anatomy diagram of human’s male reproductive system in the following image.
In the diagram of male reproductive system above, can be seen that the reproductive system of a male human includes the scrotum, testes, spermatic ducts, sex glands, and penis. These organs work together to produce sperm, the male gamete, and the other components of semen. The penis is actually made up of two parts: the shaft and the glans. The shaft is the main part of the penis and the glans is the tip. At the end of the glans is a small slit or opening, which is where semen and urine exit the body through the urethra. The inside of the penis is made of a spongy tissue that can expand and contract. As can be observed in the images posted below. You can also see the more detailed anatomy on the following anatomy diagrams.
If you look closely on the anatomy illustration, the scrotum in a male’s genitalia is the loose pouch-like sac of skin that hangs behind the penis. It contains the testicles, as well as many nerves and blood vessels. The scrotum has a protective function and acts as a climate control system for the testes. For normal sperm development, the testes must be at a temperature slightly cooler than the body temperature. The testes are oval bodies that average about 1.5 to 3 inches in length and 2 to 3 teaspoons in volume. Usually the left testis hangs slightly lower than the right one.
