male reproductive system
The male reproductive system, like that of the female (see female reproductive system), consists of those organs whose function is to produce a new individual, i.e., to accomplish reproduction. This system consists of a pair of testes and a network of excretory ducts (epididymis, ductus deferens (vas deferens), and ejaculatory ducts), seminal vesicles, the prostate gland, the bulbourethral glands, and the penis.
