Anatomy and Physiology (cont’d)
  • The male genitourinary system shares the urethra with the urinary system and is also known as the urogenital system.

Scrotum

Soft pouch of skin behind the penis and in front of the legs

Few degrees cooler than the core body temperature

Muscles in wall of the scrotum contract or relax to move the scrotum closer to, or farther away from, the body to adjust to temperature changes

Scrotum (cont’d)

Perineum is the area between the anus and the scrotum

Testis

The scrotum contains the testes or testicles.

Egg-shaped glands about 2 inches in length.

Testes are the gonads, or sex glands.

Testis (cont’d)

Function as part of the male genitourinary system and the endocrine system

Contains the seminiferous tubules that produce spermatozoa, or sperm

Acts as a gland and secretes the hormone testosterone

Epididymis

A long, coiled tube (over 20 feet) that is attached to the outer wall of each testis.

Within the epididymis, the head of each spermatozoon is given a cap-like layer of enzymes that helps it penetrate and fertilize the ovum of the female.

Destroys defective spermatozoa

Vas Deferens, Seminal Vesicles, and Ejaculatory Duct

The vas deferens is a long duct that receives spermatozoa from the epididymis.

Spermatozoa can be stored in the vas deferens for several months in an inactive state.

The vas deferens goes behind the urinary bladder, where it merges with a seminal vesicle.

  • Vas Deferens, Seminal Vesicles, and Ejaculatory Duct (cont’d)
    • The seminal vesicles produce seminal fluid, which makes up most of the volume of semen.
    • The ejaculatory duct is a large collecting duct that holds spermatozoa and seminal fluid.
    • The ejaculatory duct enters the prostate gland, then joins the urethra within the prostate gland.

Prostate Gland

A round gland at the base of the bladder that produces prostatic fluid.

Prostatic fluid contains an antibiotic substance that kills bacteria and also contains acid phosphatase, an enzyme that breaks the deposit of semen apart and releases the spermatozoa in the woman’s vagina.

Anatomy of the Male Genitourinary System (cont’d)
anatomy of the male genitourinary system cont d6
Bulbourethral Glands

Small, bulblike glands about the size of peas, located on either side of the urethra just below the prostate gland

Produce thick mucus that makes up some of the volume of the semen and neutralizes the acidity of any urine remaining in the urethra at the time of ejaculation

Anatomy of the Male Genitourinary System (cont’d)
anatomy of the male genitourinary system cont d7
Penis

Functions as an organ of the male genitourinary system and the urinary system

In uncircumcised males, the urethral meatus is covered by the prepuce, or foreskin, of the penis.

Three columns of erectile tissue fill with blood during sexual arousal, causing the penis to become firm and erect.

Anatomy of the Male Genitourinary System (cont’d)
physiology of spermatogenesis sexual maturity and ejaculation
Physiology of Spermatogenesis, Sexual Maturity, and Ejaculation

Spermatogenesis

At the onset of puberty, the anterior pituitary gland in the brain begins to secrete follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) to stimulate the testes.

FSH stimulates spermatocytes in the testes to begin dividing.

LH stimulates the interstitial cells to begin to secrete testosterone.

physiology of spermatogenesis sexual maturity and ejaculation cont d
Physiology of Spermatogenesis, Sexual Maturity, and Ejaculation (cont’d)

Sexual Maturity

Testosterone causes the male sexual characteristics to develop: enlargement of the external genitalia; development of large muscles; deepening of the voice; growth of body hair on the face, chest axillae, and genital areas; development of the sexual drive

physiology of spermatogenesis sexual maturity and ejaculation cont d1
Physiology of Spermatogenesis, Sexual Maturity, and Ejaculation (cont’d)

Ejaculation

Thoughts or sensations initiate sexual arousal.

Smooth muscle relaxes in the wall of arteries in the penis, and vasodilation increases blood flow within the penis.

The corpora cavernosa and the corpus spongiosum distend with blood and produce an erection.

physiology of spermatogenesis sexual maturity and ejaculation cont d2
Ejaculation (cont’d)

Muscles at the base of the penis contract

Spermatozoa mix with seminal fluid, move into the urethra, and are mixed with mucus from the bulbourethral glands.

A series of contractions cause semen to be expelled from the penis through the urethral meatus.
