If we are knowledgeable and aware about the working mechanism and structure of our sexual organs and reproductive system, then we can be preventive about the harmful sexual activities because inappropriate and harmful sexual behaviour is harmful for body and health. Why and how this happen? Here we will discuss it in simple language.
In the subject of our body's working and structure, in most cases, our condition is just like a person who is expert and competent in car driving but has no ideas about car's mechanical structure, mechanism and its functions. Although such person can drive the car in crowds, can drive efficiently without getting tired, he can have excellent control over the steering even while driving in full speed but if there is some problem arises in car's engine or body, this person's driving skills or efficiency will become worthless. Then this person won't be able to drive even if car's problem is a minor one.
On the contrary, if a driver has deep knowledge about car's spare parts and working mechanism, he will not only repair a car, but also will try his best to avoid the causes of problems in the car. Such drivers not only take precaution and security about the car, but also take full care about the car's servicing and maintenance. This entire scenario is exactly applicable on human body. Our body is just like a motor car and our psyche (or heart, mind and soul) is the driver of our body. Our psyche should work according to our will because ultimately we are the owner of this body. But things are not as simple and straight as they ought to be. In fact, the matter is exactly opposite. Let's try to understand this first.
If we are knowledgeable and aware about the workings of sexual or reproductive organs, then we will be able to know their positive and negative uses. Then we will not only be the driver of the car, but also will be able to understand its mechanism and functions. Then we will not misuse the sexual or reproductive system.
So how sexual organ becomes active? Let's first understand this. Everyone knows that our body's organs become active only when our psyche orders them to do so. Psyche orders when such thought or desire occurs to it. Cause of the desires could be internal or external. Activeness of sexual organ depends on the order of psyche and tendency of the psyche.
As soon as our psyche desires libido and demands sex, our energy starts to flow downwards towards the sexual organ. This sexual energy makes sexual organ active. This energy is called “sex energy” or sexual energy. Now how this sexual energy awakens the sexual reproductive organ and makes it active? Let's have a brief overview on this as well.
Due to any reason when psyche desires libido, psyche concentrates its energy on sexual or reproductive organ. It creates excitement first. This excitement stimulates the sexual and reproductive organ area which have its direct effect on male's sexual organ penis. This excitement causes the penis glans and arteries to widen up and blood start to flow in them.
It is this blood flow which causes erection and makes the penis hard. A healthy person's body comes in this state whenever sexual desire or libido arises. Delay in coming to this state or lack of libido is called erectile
dysfunction or impotence. This topic is discussed separately in this website. Here we will keep the discussions only about working mechanism of sexual or reproductive organs.
In order to give birth to a child, a good quantity of sperms must be present in the men's semen or seminal fluid. Sperms are formed in testis. Testes are held in skin's scrotum. There are two testes. Each testis has around 200 to 300 lobules where approximately 300 million sperms are formed every day. After getting some strength, these sperms are accumulated in epididymis just above the testis. In approximately 3 weeks' time these sperms get enough strength to move independently. These sperms flow through vas deferens ( ductus deferens) and reach the seminal vesicle. They mix with seminal fluid so that they can reach female's ovary after seminal ejaculation. If these sperms are not ejaculated or not forced out then they are absorbed back by the body.
In this topic we are posting a Para from the book “masters & Johnson on sex and human loving” below:-
“The prostate produces clear fluid that makes up about 30% of seminal fluid, the liquid that is expelled from the penis during ejaculation. The other 70% of seminal fluid comes from the seminal vesicles. These two small structures lie against the back portion of the base of the bladder and join with the ends of the vas deferens to form the ejaculatory ducts. These ducts in turn join the urethra, thereby creating a continuous tubing system that leads to the end of the penis.”
Details of semen production procedure is given on page 706 of “principles of anatomy and physiology” like this – “Semen (seminal fluid) is a mixture of sperm and the secretions of the seminal vesicles, the prostate gland, and the bulbourethral glands.”
These two examples are enough to prove that semen is not stored in the body in a readymade form. Instead it is made by the secretion in three different glands once body becomes erect and stimulated by libido and sexual desire. These three secretions meet and then form the semen. These secretions travel through ductus deferens and come out of urine path of the penis.Seminal vesicles are the glands in reproductive area.Seminal vesicles supply 70% of sperms from its secretions( in the text “Principles of anatomy and physiology” this percentage has been described as 60%). Size of the seminal vesicles is about two inches which can store about one teaspoonful of liquid. This liquid is emptied after one ejaculation.
