from Ancient Greek σπέρμα (spérma) literally means "that which is sown," and is used for "the seed of plants, also of animals."  Since to grow human beings the seeds of both sexes are required, the word sperm or semen actually means the sexual seed of both males and females. 


"The one who does not know how to fulfill his duties as a simple citizen cannot tread the path of the great mysteries. Many disciples forget the good manners of a sincere and honorable gentleman or lady and become truly irresponsible and even dangerous individuals."

Samael Aun Weor, The Major Mysteries
