The testes produce sperm. The epididymis is the set of coiled tubes that hold the newly created sperm until maturation, which takes about a week. Once the sperm has matured, those coiled tubes of the epididymis transport the sperm to the vas deferens. From there, the sperm moves into the ejaculatory tube.
