Dad please no, can't this wait till I am older or at least a time that isn't my birthday?
I'd rather never do this.
Otto now that you've turned 13 I think it's time we talk about the changes going on in your body.
If I do then you would just avoid me and besides it's better now than never.
Your reproductive system consists of your testes, scrotum, sperm, semen, sperm duct, penis, urethra, seminal vesicle, bladder, prostate gland.
We will be talking about is your reproductive system. Your reproductive system is important for when you grow up and find someone you want to start a family with.
The scrotum is what holds the testis outside the body, the reason for this is to keep sperm at a lower temperature than the rest of the body.
First lets start with the outer parts of the system.
The urethra in the penis is what allows urine and semen to leave the body although the two never mix.
Do I really need to know all this?
Sperm are produced in the testis and they each have a head and tail. They use their tails to travel from the testes through sperm ducts that go around the bladder
Behind the bladder there is a gland called the seminal vesicle provides sperm with a fluid which when mixed is called semen.
Would I get in trouble if I just left? What's stopping me?
Remember when I said semen and urine both leave the body thorough the urethra well then reason the two never mix is because a muscle at the back of the bladder.
This muscle is called the prostate gland and it squeezes to stop urine from entering the urethra when semen is leaving the body.
So we are finally done!
Well that about all a should have to say for now.
Yes, now you can go play with your gifts.
