The sperm cells can not live in an environment that is body temperature. That is why they are usually found outside the body as they like it cooler. They will drop lower on a very warm day and will be pulled closer to the body on a very cold day.

It might damage the sperms due to high temperature. Therefore, in most of the mammals testes are located outside the body.
