CASTRATION

n. the surgical removal of the testes in a procedure called an orchidectomy. With the male gonads (testes) removed, a man is unable to produce both semen and testosterone. This results in a condition of sterility and infertility. See male infertility- also male sterility.

CASTRATION: "Castration renders a man sterile but not impotent."
