About The Human Genitals

The information on this page is about the human genitals and where applicable other body parts that are associated or related to the genitals.


Penis

The penis is the external sex organ of the male through which both urine and semen pass. It consists of three cylinder-shaped bodies of spongy tissue filled with tiny blood vessels, which run the length of the organ. Two of these bodies lie side by side in the upper portion of the penis. The third is a tube which lies centrally beneath the others and expands at the end to form the tip of the penis, which is called the "glans." The penis transfers sperm to the woman's body during sexual intercourse and is a duct for the disposal of fluid waste. The penis becomes erect during sexual excitement, because extra blood is pumped into spongy tissues, resulting in enlargement and hardening which allows penetration into the female organ. The "head" of the penis is called the "glans" and is normally covered with a protective, retractable Skin or "hood." This skin is often cut off at birth, or "circumcised," and it is believed that its removal lessens risk of Cancer and bacterial infections. At the center of the penis is a tube which carries urine from the bladder and semen from the prostate gland, called the "urethra." During sexual intercourse, reflexes prevent urine from entering this duct and alkaline solutions are produced and secreted to flush out any traces of urine from the urethra before semen is secreted.

Vagina

The vagina is a muscular passage which forms a part of the female sex organs and which connects the neck of the uterus (called the "cervix") with the external genitals. The vagina, which is approximately two and one-half to four inches long, has muscular walls which are supplied with numerous blood vessels. These walls become erect when a woman is aroused as extra blood is pumped into these vessels. The vagina has three functions: as a receptacle for the penis during love-making; as a outlet for blood during menstruation; and as a passageway for the baby to pass through at birth. According to The Guiness Book of World Records, a Russian peasant woman who lived in the 18th Century holds the record for the most children born to one mother. She had sixty-nine children within forty years. She produced sixteen pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets, and four sets of quadruplets!
