Expert Answer:

Role of organs in the human male reproductive system:

1. Testes

  • Produce the male gametes, sperms
  • Produce the male sex hormone, testosterone

2. Seminal vescicles:

  • The secretion of seminal vesicles contains fructose, hormones like prostaglandins and clotting proteins.
  • Fructose acts as a source of energy for the sperms.
  • Prostaglandins stimulate uterine contractions and help in the movement of sperms towards the fallopian tube of females.
  • The clotting proteins help semen coagulate after ejaculation.
  • Alkaline nature of the seminal fluid helps to neutralise the acidic environment of the male urethra as well as the female reproductive tract that would otherwise inactivate and kill sperms.
