The vestibule forms from the urogenital sinus and, as mentioned previously, it is separated from the vagina initially by the hymen. The vestibule develops as a structure separate from the vagina and fuses with it later in development. The vestibule, however, is similar in structure to the vagina and is lined by stratified squamous epithelium.
When I first learned that the clitoris was like a little penisI felt empowered. After being taught that the penis was the sexual organ of all sexual organs, I no longer felt like I was missing out on the desire and pleasure cis men were afforded. But there are also problems with this analogy, according to sex educator Mal Harrison.
In simple terms, reproduction is the process by which organisms create descendants. This miracle is a characteristic that all living things have in common and sets them apart from nonliving things. But even though the reproductive system is essential to keeping a species alive, it is not essential to keeping an individual alive.
Physicians throughout time have analyzed, compared, and puzzled over the male and female reproductive organs. Were men and women different? Were they different in degree or in kind?
The male reproductive system consists of the penistestes, epididymisejaculatory ductsprostateand accessory glands. These organs function together to produce sperm and deliver semen from the testes via ejaculation. For more information on the embryological development of the male reproductive system, see development of the reproductive system.

This list of related male and female reproductive organs shows how the male and female reproductive organs and the development of the reproductive system are related, sharing a common developmental path. This makes them biological homologues. These organs differentiate into the respective sex organs in males and females. The external genitalia of both males and females have similar origins.
The perineal region is that part of the trunk below the pelvic diaphragm. It is diamond shaped and has the same boundaries as the pelvic outlet. It is divided into an anterior, urogenital triangle and a posterior, anal triangle.
The vulva is made up of the mons veneris, the labia majora, the labia minora, the vestibule, the perineum, and the clitoris. The vagina opens into the vulva, but it is mainly an internal organ. The mons veneris or mons punis is the fatty cushion resting over the front surface of the pubic bone. This area is covered with pubic hair after puberty and serves as a protective cushion for the genitals especially during lovemaking.
