what is the function of cowpers gland?

Expert Answer:

Dear student,
Cowpers glands produce a clear, slippery fluid that empties directly into the urethra. This fluid serves to lubricate the urethra and to neutralize any acidity that may be present due to residual drops of urine in the urethra.
Fluids from the prostate, the seminal vesicles and Cowper's glands make up the bulk of semen.
Hope this answers your query.
