The testicles are the male sex glands located behind the penis in a pouch of skin called the scrotum. The testicles are also called testes or gonads.
The main job of the testicles is to produce and store sperm, and they are also the body’s main source of male testosterone hormones. These hormones control the development of the reproductive organs and other male characteristics, such as body and facial hair, low voice, and wide shoulders.
For your testicles to produce sperm, they must be kept at just the right temperature. Guys become fertile between the ages of 11 and 17, meaning they are able to ejaculate semen and get a girl pregnant.
