Semen is a thick, cloudy, white substance that contains sperm and
other fluids. Semen is released, or ejaculated, from the penis during a man's
sexual climax (orgasm).
The amount of semen ejaculated varies from between a few drops to
about 1 tsp (4.9 mL) and
usually contains between 40 million and 600 million sperm.
