Anatomy of your penis

It helps to know what parts are that constitute one of the most important organs in a male that provide utmost pleasure. The male sexual organs are made up of 7 major parts; penis, shaft of the penis, glans, corona, frenulum, foreskin, meatus and the scrotum.

different parts of your penis

  • Penis - The penis is the external sexual organ and is also used for urination. It is made up of spongy erectile tissues called "corpus spondiosum" and "corpus cavernosum," which are located on top of the penis. This tissue fills up with blood and becomes erect when a man is aroused. Underneath the penis is the "corpus." A penis can be of any size and the size does not affect its performance.

    The penis consists of several other parts and each part is in some way responsible for feelings of pleasure and sexual arousal.

  • Shaft - The shaft of the penis extends out of the body to the tip of the penis. The skin of the shaft is loose and stretchable when the penis is flaccid. Many people assume that the penis shaft is not as sensitive as the head of the penis; however, many men have some very sensitive areas on the shaft.
  • Glans Penis - The head of the penis, which is the end of the corpus spongiosum is called the glans. This is also the urethral opening from where both semen and urine come out. The glans is an extremely sensitive area as it has many nerve endings. The glans is compared to the clitoris in a woman. The tissue that the glans is developed out of is the same tissue the clitoris is developed from.
  • Corona - The rounded projecting border at the base of the glans is the corona of the glans penis.
  • Frenulum or Frenum - The underside of the penis has a small indentation, where the glans meets the shaft. This is called the frenulum and is another area that is very sensitive. A man with a short frenulum finds it painful when having intercourse.
  • Foreskin - Foreskin is something everyone knows about. It is the skin that covers the glans in a flaccid penis and it goes back or retracts when the penis is erect. When circumcision is done, the foreskin is removed and the glans is open all the time.

Let's now see what is inside the penis:

The penis becomes hard during an erection, which happens due to the blood flow into the penis that fills up the penile tissues.

The problem of erectile dysfunction happens when there is insufficient blood flow into the penis or there is a problem with blood staying in the penis. Inside the penis, there are 3 tubes, 1 at the bottom and 2 above it. The bottom tube also contains the urethra that passes through it.

Urethra - Urethra is the tube through which semen and urine pass to come out of the body. It is the last part of the urinary tract and it opens up on the tip of the glans penis.

This urethral opening is called the "meatus". Some men feel extreme pleasure when the urethral opening, ie. the meatus is stimulated. There are some that enjoy stimulation of the urethra too.

There is something else called "raphe". This is the ridge found underneath the penis.

During ejaculation, the vas deferens and the epididymis contract to push the sperm up into the ejaculatory duct, where the sperm is mixed with the secretions of the seminal vesicles and prostate gland.

This forms the semen. Then the strong vessels at the base of the urethra make the semen to squirt out of the penis. In a healthy male, the semen and urine never mix.
