The male accessory glands include a pair of seminal vesicles, prostate gland and a pair of bulbourethral glands.

They produce secretions that help the sperms to improve their motility and also facilitate sperm transfer to the female.

Prostate gland is a single gland that surrounds urethra, it helps in providing nourishment to the sperms.

Seminal vesicles are a pair of glands that are present at the base of the bladder. They produce secretions which contain fructose, thus providing energy for the sperms to move.

Bulbourethral glands or Cowper’s glands are located on either side of the urethra. They secrete mucus to lubricate the penis.
