The human male genital is an erectile sex organ and is part of the external genital of the body of the male. On the male genital, you can notice the penis which is made up of three columns of tissue: two corpora cavernosa lie next to each other on the dorsal side and one corpus spongiosum lies between them on the ventral side. You can also notice the scrotum, which holds the testicles. Contained within the male genital is the penis, glans, prepuce, scrotum, testicles, foreskin, frenulum.

Aging of human male genitalia
Aging, the process of becoming older and more mature, You are looking at male genitalia at various stages of life. You can notice the different changes the male sex organs will undergo as it ages and men become older and more mature.
Male pelvis and placement of male genitalia
You are looking at the male pelvic region, which you will find the genitalia in frontal view and the buttocks on rear view which are rounded portions of the anatomy located on the posterior of the pelvic region.
Pubic region and pubic hair growth area.
The pubic region comprises the front side of the pelvic region in a human male. Pubic hair covers the pubic region and also grows on the scrotum and surrounding areas. See examples of male genitals at various stages of grooming (shaved, trimmed and natural).
Penis of the human male.
The penis is a sensitive copulatory organ of the male oh higher vertebrates important to reproduction and urination and to sexual pleasure. At its tip is the glans of the penis, which contains the urethral opening, through which urine passes and evacuates from the body.
The structure of the penis has a ridge that separates the glans from the body of the penis which is called the corona (Latin for “crown”). The glans and the corona of the penis are the most sensitive parts of the male genitalia. The glans of the penis is covered with a foreskin (prepuce) unless the man has been circumcised, in which case the foreskin has been surgically removed. The area on the underside of the penis, where the foreskin is attached, is called the frenum (or frenulum).
The human penis is made up of three cylinders of tissue that run parallel to the urethra: two corpora cavernosa lie next to each other on the dorsal side and one corpus spongiosum lies between them on the ventral side. During sexual arousal, these tissues become engorged with blood and expand in size, causing the penis to enlarge and become erect.
The enlarged and bulbous-shaped end of the corpus spongiosum forms the glans penis, which supports the foreskin or prepuce, a loose fold of skin that in adults can retract to expose the glans.
The urethra, which is the last part of the urinary tract, traverses the corpus spongiosum, and its opening, known as the meatus which lies on the tip of the glans penis. It is a passage both for urine and for the ejaculation of semen. Sperm are produced in the testes and stored in the attached epididymis. During ejaculation, sperm are propelled up the vas deferens, two ducts that pass over and behind the bladder. Fluids are added by the seminal vesicles and the vas deferens turns into the ejaculatory ducts which join the urethra inside the prostate gland. The prostate as well as the bulbourethral glands add further secretions, and the semen is expelled through the penis.
The raphe is the visible ridge between the lateral halves of the penis, found on the ventral or underside of the penis, running from the meatus (opening of the urethra) across the scrotum to the perineum (area between scrotum and anus).
The human penis differs from those of most other mammals, as it has no baculum, or erectile bone, and instead relies entirely on engorgement with blood to reach its erect state. It cannot be withdrawn into the groin, and the human penis is slightly larger than average in the animal kingdom in proportion to body mass.
Scotrum of human male genitals
In human males, the scrotum is a protuberance of skin and muscle or pouch containing the testicles. It is an extension of the abdomen, and is located between the penis and anus. The scrotum becomes covered with pubic hair as the human male goes into puberty.
Erection of human male genitals
The erection of the penis is its enlarged and firm state or becoming hard. It depends on a complex interaction of psychological, neural, vascular and endocrine factors. Maintaining the erectile state is key to the reproductive system and life itself could not reproduce in a natural way with out this ability.
Size of human male genitalia
Size of the human male genitalia varies greatly between individuals. Male genital size is given a lot of importance, however all genitals will stimulate and be able to copulate with female genitals. Average penis size is 15 cm (5.90 inches) to 16 cm (6.3 inches) in length.
Male genitalia by ethnic heritage
Male genitals come in many shapes and sizes, herein we take a look at the difference between men of various ethnic heritage.
