    In this lecture we are going to look at the male reproductive organs. But we also, because we are in this region, going to look at the bladder and the rectum. So we will start off with by looking at the boundaries of the abdomiopelvic cavity and looking at the bony pelvis. This is important as we progress now into the pelvic part of the course. We will look at the bladder. Its relation to the other organs and its structure. And then we spend considerable time looking at the male reproductive organs. We will look at the testes. We will look at the ductus deference. We then look at the seminal vesicles, the ejaculatory ducts and the prostate. And then we will look most posteriorly within the pelvis, and we will look at the rectum. The relations of the rectum and also the structure of the rectum itself. But essentially the main focus of this lecture is the male reproductive organ and these are essential for the sexual reproduction. They produce, store and expel the male gamete sperm, during sexual intercourse. But let's have a look at the abdominopelvic cavity and specifically the pelvis and that's what we are looking at here. Previously we saw the posterior abdominal wall filling this kind of space around here. But now we are concentrating purely on this region. This is the pelvis or the innominate bones and we are really be going to concentrating on the structures that are found within this region. But remember that the abdominal contents extend into the pelvic cavity. So one like the thorax and the abdomen which is separated by that partition the diaphragm. There is no clear separation. Remember, the abdominal viscera are bound by the peritoneum. That doesn't happen in the pelvis. The peritoneum...
