  4. Male Reproductive System • Scrotum • The sac that holds the testes and controls their temperature.

  5. Male Reproductive System • Epididymis • The coiled tubes, behind the testicles, where sperm mature, and are stored.

  6. Male Reproductive System • Vas Deferens • The tube that carries sperm from the epididymis up into the male’s body.

  8. Male Reproductive System • Semen • The thick, whitish liquid which carries sperm cells.

  9. Male Reproductive System • Prostate Gland • A gland under the bladder that makes some of the liquid part of semen.

  10. Male Reproductive System • Cowper’s Gland • Glands on either side of the urethra that make a discharge which lines the urethra when a man gets an erection, making it less acid-like to protect the sperm.
