Description

The reproductive system or genital system is a system of sex organs within an organism which work together for the purpose of sexual reproduction.

The male genitals include the testes, the ductus deferentes, the vesiculæ seminales, the ejaculatory ducts, and the penis, together with the following accessory structures, viz., the prostate and the bulbourethral glands.

The female genital organs consist of an internal and an external group. The internal organs are situated within the pelvis, and consist of the ovaries, the uterine tubes, theuterus, and the vagina. The external organs are placed below the urogenital diaphragm and below and in front of the pubic arch. They comprise the mons pubis, the labia majora et minora pudendi, the clitoris, the bulbus vestibuli, and the greater vestibular glands.
