Seminal Vesicles

Definition of Seminal Vesicles:

These are a couple of spongy glands, 1.5 to 2 inches long, that secrete high-sugar, acidic, and thick, ropy colloid into the ductus deferens (containing sperm from the testes) during ejaculation.  The two fluids empty into the prostate, where they are mixed with alkaline prostatic fluids to form semen.
