Male reproductive system


Male reproductive system




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. The main male sex organs are the penis and the testicles which produce semen and sperm, which, as part of sexual intercourse, fertilise an ovum in the female's body; the fertilised ovum (zygote) develops into a fetus, which is later born as an infant.
