  • take everything you know about semen and throw it out the window because you were lied to.

  • Yes it comes out of the penis during ejaculation.

  • But beyond that you're probably filled with misconceptions.

  • Just like semen is filled with much more than just sperm.

  • If you really want to learn all the weird facts about semen and be smarter than your friends, you need to watch this video, there is most definitely sperm and semen but not as much as you might think.

  • Also this is where we'll break one of the most common misconceptions.

  • Semen and sperm are not the same thing.

  • Sperm is the male sex cell that's produced in the testes and carries half of the D.

  • N.

  • A.

  • To make a baby.

  • Semen on the other hand is a mixture of lots of different proteins, lipids, fluids and sperm.

  • With each fact about this mysterious substance.

  • Things are gonna get weirder and weirder.

  • One of the most common questions about semen has to do with what's called pre ejaculate or pre cum is the liquid that comes out of the penis before ejaculation.

  • Semen and whatever it is.

  • Can it get a female pregnant?

  • We have the answers but first we need to understand what semen actually consists of.

  • Most of the semen isn't created in the testicles.

  • Instead the substance is made in three different areas of the body and are mixed together just as a man ejaculate During orgasm.

  • The sperm travels through the seminal vesicles where a yellowish fluid rich in fructose is produced and mixed in with the sperm.

  • This is what around 70% of the semen is actually made of.

  • After the seminal vesicles, The concoction passes through the prostate where a fluid containing enzymes, citric acid, phosphates and lipids is added.

  • Lastly, just before ejaculation, the fluid goes through the bull, bull urethral glands, which secrete lubrication to allow the sperm to pass out of the urethra.

  • Who knew the journey of semen was full of so many twists and turns when the semen comes out of the penis, it is almost entirely made up of proteins and water.

  • Only 1-5% of the semen is actually sperm granted in the average teaspoon size ejaculation of semen, there are around 200-500 million sperm cells.

  • However, the vast majority of the substance is not sperm.

  • You may be asking yourself, why do men creates so much other stuff.

  • While ejaculating, The answer is pretty crazy and it has to do with how hostile the vagina is For sperm?

  • The female reproductive system is a difficult and treacherous path to navigate in order for the sperm to even stand the slightest chance of reaching an egg.

  • It needs to be contained within the protective liquids of semen in the vagina itself is too acidic for sperm to survive it.

  • Also, the female's immune cells patrol the reproductive system and they will identify and destroy sperm on site if it's not contained within semen, the contents of seminal fluid, which is just a fancy way of saying semen creates a safe barrier between the sperm and everything that wants to kill it in the female's body.

  • So we're now back to the question, what is pre ejaculate?

  • And can it get a female pregnant?

  • It's not actually semen at all.

  • Instead the pre ejaculate is secreted by the calpers gland which is not used in the production of semen or sperm.

  • It is thought that this liquid is used to help lubricate the tip of the penis to allow for easier penetration during sex.

  • Therefore pre ejaculate cannot get a female pregnant.

  • That being said if a male has recently ejaculated and some sperm was able to survive in the urethra, the pre ejaculate could flush some of that sperm into the vagina if a couple goes for round two immediately after climax was achieved by the male.

  • To be extra careful and make sure that the lubricant doesn't contain any sperm flush the system by ping before going at it again or use a condom or get a vasectomy, any of those things.

  • Survival options now that we're all on the same page about semen.

  • Let's get into some even more bizarre facts about the ejaculate semen doesn't just protect the sperm from the female's body, but from the body it came from as well.

  • The testicles are considered an immunologically privileged site.

  • This means they are protected from the body's own immune system.

  • So the sperm inside of them is not destroyed since the male doesn't produce sperm until after puberty, they already developed immune system doesn't recognize sperm cells as part of its own body.

  • Therefore, once the sperm leaves the safety of the testicles, the immune cells can immediately try to destroy them.

  • The semen that the sperm is contained in, protects the cells and allows them to quickly move out of the male's body during ejaculation before they're destroyed.

  • And if that isn't crazy enough to think about what semen allows sperm to do once it leaves the body, sperm is the only human cell that is produced in one person, but meant to survive inside another.

  • This is how people get pregnant without the semen, sperm would not be able to survive long enough inside a female body to complete their mission.

  • The sperm are explorers and the semen is their spaceship to travel to the final frontier.

  • One of the most surprising things about semen actually has to do with surgery.

  • Men get vasectomies for different reasons.

  • Maybe they aren't ready for Children and want to have sex with less risk of getting their partner pregnant.

  • Regardless of the reasoning of vasectomy operation is done by separating the tubes called the vast deferens that transports sperm from the testis to the urethra by snipping this tube, sperm is not able to leave the male body.

  • However, that's not the case for the man's semen.

  • When you think of a vasectomy, you might assume that the male will no longer ejaculate at all.

  • But this is not true, males who undergo this operation still ejaculate about the same amount of semen as before.

  • There just isn't any sperm in it.

  • The only part that's missing in the semen from a man with a vasectomy is the 1-5% of the sperm that normally mixes with the other fluids.

  • Something else to note is that a vasectomy will not prevent the spread of stds which are still transferred in the fluid swamp during sex, whether it be vaginal, anal or oral.

  • For men who still have their best efforts attached to the rest of the reproductive system, there's another weird fact about the sperm mixed with their semen, only about half the sperm are functional.

  • So really when a man ejaculate is the amount of healthy sperm in the semen is closer to 1%.

  • The sperm that are not viable tend to be Misshapen.

  • they can have two heads or two tails.

  • The sperm could be too big or too small.

  • Really, it's a miracle that males can get the job done at all sometimes and sticking with the testicles, do you need to in order to produce enough semen for pregnancy?

  • The answer is one testicle will do just fine.

  • Even if a male only has one testicle, he can still produce enough sperm and semen to impregnate a female, interestingly, if a man loses a testicle, sometimes the remaining one will grow slightly to produce more sperm, Even if the mixture of sperm in the semen is cut in half, there are still hundreds of millions of sperm in the fluid, which is definitely enough to cause pregnancy.

  • It just means that the couple may need to have more sex, Which could be good news to hear.

  • Our last fact about semen is that the size of the load does not correlate to fertility.

  • A large ejaculation with lots of semen or a smaller one contain about the same amount of sperm.

  • It's only the amount of liquids or other parts of the seaman that increases the average ejaculation amount is around a teaspoon of semen.

  • Whether a man's ejaculation is more than that or slightly less, it will still contain hundreds of millions of sperm.

  • So in terms of the amount of semen in ejaculation size doesn't matter now.

  • Watch weird facts about the testicles or check out weird facts about the male body.
