Man's Sexual Organs
We are going to make use of Michelangeloís magnificent statue of the naked David so that we can review the essential parts of manís genital organs: penis, testes or testicles, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, ejaculator canals, and the prostate gland. (Diagram)
The penis is an organ which has a double function: one is urinary and the other sexual. Many jokes are made about the penis. Practically every family calls the penis by a different name, which is a pity. There are many myths about the size of the penis. However, practically all sex researches find that it is not the size of the penis that is important, but, instead, its functional performance.
The adult testicles, about the size of walnuts, are held inside the scrotal bags. Testicles produce the male seeds or sperms. However, for sperms to fully mature, the testicles must be at a temperature 4 degrees F below the temperature inside the abdomen. This is the reason why, normally, by the eighth month the babyís testicles descend to the cooler scrotum so that the sperms can later mature in adolescence. In the final analysis, men should wear skirts instead of women...
The sperms leave the testicles through very thin tubes (epidydimis and vas deferens). Then, stored in the seminal vesicles (terminal part of the vas deferens) and in the ejaculator canals, are ready to be ejaculated during orgasm. Each average ejaculation has 300 million sperms and only one sperm is allowed to penetrate the womanís egg. If the average married man could save his sperm until the age of 50, he would fill a gallon jug with 500 billion sperms! truly fantastic!
The prostate gland, the size and shape of a chestnut, has the very important function of secreting a clear alkaline liquid (prostaglandins). This prostatic fluid not only lubricates the walls of the urethra, but, at the same time, it serves as an alkaline medium protecting the fragile sperms from the acid environment of the vagina. The sperms seen under the microscope look like fish with large heads. The head contains the nucleus with all genetic characteristics of the male. With their long tail, the sperms propel themselves at an amazing speed.
Testifying Manís testicles have had a very strong legal, social and religious significance in the history of mankind throughout the ages. The titles of two sacred writings, The Old Testament and The New Testament are derived directly from the word testicle. And we know that the father determines the family name or patronimics. Universally, the male child is preferred to the female because it perpetuates the family name.
In ancient times such as the Hebrew and the Greek, manís virility as symbolized by manís testicles was honored and respected, and men were careful to protect their honor and potency in regard to their testicles. This concern for their virility and honor manifests itself in their customs and writings.
With todayís testimonial dinners to outstanding leaders, men or women,, we should not forget that the word testimonial is derived from testicle! We are sometimes required to testify in courts of law on very important matters. In all such cases requiring our testimony, we must not forget, that even in the highest courts, the testimony we are giving is based on the lowly testicles, strange but true!
