This is the clear liquid that comes out before ejaculation. It's also called Cowper's fluid, and its purpose is to flush the urethra so left-over urine won't kill the sperm. Note that Cowper's fluid may contain some live sperm, and that most guys don't feel it flowing.

How much sperm does a man have in his penis?

None. The sperm is not stored in the penis, so none is there except during and immediately after ejaculation (and sometimes right before if you produce preejaculate). The testes are what produce the sperm. However, it is your seminal vesicles which store the sperm cells and the other secretions your body makes which are collectively called semen. During ejaculation, you may release about a teaspoon's worth, give or take some.

Describe the origin and importance of substances found in semen?

Semen comes from the testes, prostate gland, and cowper's gland, and is stored in the seminal vesicles until it is released from the penis.The testes make sperm cells (and testosterone and some oxytocin too, though not relevant to this discussion). They travel up the vas deferens, the ducts that carry the sperm cells to the seminal vesicles.The seminal vesicles are a mixing and storage area for semen.The Cowper's glands produce what is known as preejaculate. That helps lubricate and clear the urethra as well as neutralize acidity from any residual urine.The prostate gland creates the milky fluid that the sperm cells use for travel. This fluid also nourishes and protects the sperm cells on their journey to the egg cell.
