All living things reproduce. Reproduction — the process by which organisms make more organisms like themselves — is one of the things that sets living things apart from nonliving things. In the human reproductive process, two kinds of sex cells, or gametes, are involved. Both the male and female reproductive systems are essential for reproduction. Humans pass certain characteristics of themselves to the next generation through their genes, the special carriers of human traits. Most species have two sexes: male and female.

Reproduction is the process by which organisms make more organisms like themselves. But even though the reproductive system is essential to keeping a species alive, unlike other body systems, it's not essential to keeping an individual alive. In the human reproductive process, two kinds of sex cells, or gametes pronounced: GAH-meetz , are involved. The male gamete, or sperm, and the female gamete, the egg or ovum, meet in the female's reproductive system. When sperm fertilizes meets an egg, this fertilized egg is called a zygote pronounced: ZYE-goat. The zygote goes through a process of becoming an embryo and developing into a fetus.
Male Reproductive System
The male reproductive system includes the penis, scrotum, testes, epididymis, vas deferens, prostate, and seminal vesicles. The penis and the urethra are part of the urinary and reproductive systems. The scrotum, testes testicles , epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, and prostate comprise the rest of the reproductive system. The penis consists of the root which is attached to the lower abdominal structures and pelvic bones , the visible part of the shaft, and the glans penis the cone-shaped end. The opening of the urethra the channel that transports semen and urine is located at the tip of the glans penis.
The male reproductive system consists of a number of sex organs that play a role in the process of human reproduction. These organs are located on the outside of the body and within the pelvis. The main male sex organs are the penis and the testicles which produce semen and sperm , which, as part of sexual intercourse , fertilize an ovum in the female's body; the fertilized ovum zygote develops into a fetus , which is later born as an infant. The corresponding system in females is the female reproductive system. The penis is the male intromittent organ.
