Leeches are hermaphrodites, meaning they are organisms that have both female and male reproductive organs (ovaries and testes respectively). They reproduce by reciprocal fertilization and sperm transfer occurs during copulation. The leech exercising the role of the male will grow a sperm sack near the end of "his" tail, and the leech playing the female will bite it off, thus reproducing.
