The Reproductive System: How Gonads Go

In this video about the reproductive system, the narrator discusses the importance of sex — to reproduce and pass on genetic material — and reminds viewers of the differences between the gametes. He then explains the reproductive parts of the male and female systems, describing how the sperm leaves the male body and joins the egg in reproduction.
