Structure[edit] The exterior structure of the glans consists of mucous membrane, which is usually covered by foreskin or clitoral hood in naturally developed genitalia. This covering, called the prepuce, is normally retractable in adulthood. The glans naturally joins with the inner labia, and the frenulum of the penis or clitoris. In non-technical or sexual discussions, often the word "clitoris" refers to the external glans alone, excluding the clitoral hood, frenulum, and internal body of the clitoris.[citation needed]


Gender differences in humans[edit] In males, the glans is known as the glans penis, while in females the glans is known as the clitoral glans. In females, the clitoris is above the urethra. The glans of the clitoris is the most highly innervated part of the external female genitalia.[4]


Gender differences in other mammals[edit] In spotted hyenas, the female's pseudo-penis can be distinguished from the male's penis by its greater thickness and more rounded glans.[5][6][7][8] In both male and female spotted hyenas, the base of the glans is covered with penile spines.[9][10][11]


Development[edit] In the development of the urinary and reproductive organs, the glans is derived from the genital tubercle.
