Dear student,
Male accessory sex glands include the seminal vesicles, prostate, and bulbourethral glands. The secretion from each of these glands is added to the testicular fluid and forms a substantial part of the semen.
Female accessory glands include Bartholin Glands which secrete mucus to lubricate the vagina at the time of mating and parturition and breasts which secrete milk to nourish the new born baby.
