How do the seminal vesicles produce so much semen so fast? And how does it do that?

In brief: Hormones = Awesome

Once you've passed through puberty, your genital tract is primed to be stimulated by testosterone, the male hormone.
The seminal vesicles, once sensitized, continuously make semen 24/7. If you were to record your "output" over a day it would likely be close to 8-10 cc/day. Since an average ejaculate is about 3.5 cc, you would see reduction for any additional samples obtained in the same day.

In brief: Naturally

They don't produce it so fast.
They store it but when it is to be mobilized, they contract and just propel it out.
