In males, the urethra carries both sperm and urine outside of the body.

Extra info:
The urethra has sphincter muscles, which allow for urination to be a process that we can control. Sphincter muscles control the opening and closing of a tube (they are also present near the stomach!) All humans have an external urethral sphincter, but only males have an internal urethral sphincter.
