Obviously, I’ve never tried cream again. I’ve been shaving the berries every other day for years now. I know the thought of gliding a razor over such an area makes many squirm, but honestly I’ve cut my face way more than I’ve ever nicked my berry sack. I think I’ve nicked it three times in 15 years. Only one of those times was there any pain involved. I think the fear of an accident is what keeps me extra careful when shaving. My technique is to pull the skin tight, shave slow and reapply shaving cream at least once in the process.
Epididymis The epididymis stores the sperm after the testicles produce them.
Vas deferens The vas deferens is a duct that carries sperm from the epididymis to the urethra.
Accessory glands There are several glands that work together to produce semen, or seminal fluid. The seminal vesicle produces a fluid that provides energy to the sperm as they seek out the female sex cell, or the egg. The prostate gland makes a different fluid that helps the sperm move more quickly through the female reproductive system. Another set of glands, called bulbourethral or Cowper’s glands, makes a small quantity of fluid that helps protect the sperm on its way through the urethra by neutralizing any leftover traces of acidic urine. Sperm can live inside the female reproductive system for up to 48 hours, and seminal fluid helps the sperm move around and stay nourished.
