The sperm, also popularly known as semen or semen (Brazilian portuguese) the organic fluid is produced by the males of many animal species for sperm transport to the site of fertilization in female.

* The term sperm It comes from the Greek: ‘sperm‘ , what does it mean: seed.”

Characteristics of human semen

The sperm It is creamy human, sparkling, off-white opaline. Periods of abstinence leave yellow sperm (possibly by the process of death and necrosis of older accumulated haploid cells).

The sperm It consists of a mixture of testicular secretions, seminais vesicles, Prostate glands and Cowper. After 10 a 30 minutes outside the human body, the thick liquid becomes extremely fluid (interestingly exposed to air at low latitudes, more part liquid evaporates and dries it becoming less fluid and more tacky)

The taste of sperm it is “accented” (usually astringent) and a little salty (usually when the mixing rest of the urine ducts), however it has variations that are directly related to the power of each individual (the more time between ejaculations, the greater the tendency to sweet).
