In this regard, what is the process that releases sperm from the body called?

Semen is pushed out of the male's body through his urethra — this process is called ejaculation.

One may also ask, where do glands add fluid to sperm? Fluids are added by the seminal vesicles before the vas deferens carries the sperm to the ejaculatory ducts, which join the urethra inside the prostate gland. The prostate as well as the bulbourethral glands add further secretions, then the semen is expelled through the penis.

One may also ask, which of the following glands secretes fructose to nourish the sperm?

Seminal Vesicles[edit] The pair of seminal vesicles are posterior to the urinary bladder. They secrete fructose to provide an energy source for sperm and alkalinity to enhance sperm mobility. The duct of each seminal vesicle joins the ductus deferens on that side to form the ejaculatory duct.

What is the function of seminal fluid and name the glands that help produce it?

The seminal vesicles, the prostate and the bulbourethral glands all contribute to the production of semen. The seminal vesicles provide nutrients and mobility to previously immobile sperm. The prostatic fluid helps by producing proteins with antibiotic properties to help prevent infections.
