What do you call your penis

Boys' consultation hour


... both produce many millions of sperm cells every day from puberty onwards, plus the important male hormone testosterone, which is responsible, for example, for manly appearance, pleasure and muscle strength. Since sperm production takes place best at a temperature of around 35 ° C, shortly before birth, the testes migrate from the 37 ° warm belly through the inguinal canal into the scrotum. Most of the time, the testicles are slightly differently high in the scrotum.


... lie like a cap on top and on the outside of the testicles. They store the sperm and expel them when they ejaculate.


... is a skin pouch that houses the testicles and epididymis and contracts when it is cold or expands when it is warm.

Vas deferens

... transport the sperm from the epididymis past the seminal vesicles to the prostate.


... through which both the urine (= urine) and the semen are excreted: Don't worry, you can't do both at the same time.

Seminal vesicles

... you have two. They lie to the right and left of the prostate and produce the sugary part of the seminal fluid to nourish the sperm.


... is also called the "prostate gland" because it "stands" in front of the bladder. It is the size of a chestnut and produces part of the seminal fluid.

Cowper's gland

... when aroused, produces the so-called drops of happiness, pleasure or love in order to clean the urethra of urine residues before ejaculation and to moisten the glans.


... is also called a limb and the urethra runs through the middle. It consists of several parts:

Erectile tissue

... there are two in your penis that, during sexual arousal or after puberty, often fill so much with blood for no reason that they become noticeably and visibly thicker, longer and hard, so that the penis erects ( = Erection). With an average penis size (approx. 12.5 cm during erection), around 250 ml of blood fit into it. If that doesn't work out right it's called erectile dysfunction.

Rim furrow

... is the recess between the penis shaft and the glans.


... is the very sensitive front part of the penis.


... covers and protects the touch-sensitive glans. It is usually so elastic that you can easily slide it back over the glans to the shaft of the penis. Circumcised boys do not have a foreskin. It was removed by surgery for religious or medical reasons.


... is also called the foreskin ligament and lies on the underside of the penis between the glans and penis shaft.
