Male Pelvic Anatomy


(Depending on size)

  • The male pelvis contains the bladder and rectum, along with the internal portions of the reproductive system: the prostate, seminal vesicles, and the intrapelvic portions of the ductal apparatus.
  • Sperm is produced in the testes, which lie in the scrotal sac outside of the pelvis. The sperm travels up the spermatic duct and is stored in the seminal vesicles. At ejaculation, sperm is released along with prostatic fluid, both of which travel down the urethra.
  • The urethra has three parts: the prostatic portion; the membranous portion which passes through the urogenital diaphragm, and the penile portion.
  • The spermatic cord contains a venous plexus, the spermatic artery and the spermatic duct.
