Semen


Semen is the composite of the male’s reproductive fluid. Semen is composed of sperm that are produced in the testicles and transported through the vas deferens to the seminal vesicles. The seminal vesicles add the bulk of ejaculatory fluid to provide the sperm an ample medium to move around after ejaculation from the body. The prostate gland adds an anticoagulant to keep the semen from congealing as well as proteins and hormones that will nourish the sperm cells. Men who have undergone prostate cancer treatments, especially the prostatectomy, may no longer produce semen but experience dry orgasm after appropriate sexual stimulation.
