Warning: This site does not promote pornography, it just shows the reality. However, this section is the most visited, probably because it is difficult to prevent people to satisfy their curiosity about such a taboo subject. Please, take the opportunity to learn the real names of the different regions.

    The reproductive system is essential for the perpetuation of species (to make babies). This is the miracle of life. Naturally, it takes a male and a female of a species to have children. The man supplies one-half of his genome in each of his spermatozoid. Using his penis, a man needs to deposit its sperm in the woman's vagina. Once-a-month, the woman lay an egg (ovum), containing one-half of her genome, in her uterus. When one sperm, out of thousands, fuse with the egg, life begins. The newly formed cell starts to divide in two, four and eight cells, etc.. This process of cell division and cell differentiation will last nine months, after which a complete child will be born.

    The figures on the left represent the genitals of the man and woman. Note that the kidney and bladder, shown in these figures are not really part of the reproductive system, they are shown only to indicate that the excretion of urine is going through our genitals. On the other hand, some glands of our endocrine (hormonal) system, controlling most of our sexual functions are not shown.

    In women, the breast could have been added to the figure. The breast contains mammary glands that produce milk to feed the infant. Although the breast does not directly participate to the reproduction cycle, it is essential to the survival of the child (if it was not for the modern infant formula).
