    I assume you are referring to homeostatic regulation of temperature. For the most part males and females have similar control of their internal environment. One variation of this comes in gamete production and storage. Male sperm and female ova must be stored and produced at different temperatures. Male sperm must be a few degrees cooler than 98.6 (hence the external scrotal sack) while ova need to be warmer (inside the ovary).
