Overview of the Male Reproductive System
Sperm pass from the seminiferous tubules of a testis into the coiled tubules of the epididymis. During this journey, sperm complete their maturation and become motile. During ejaculation, the sperm are propelled from the epididymis through the muscular vas deferens and into the urethra.
