Glans penis

The glans penis, more referred to as the glans, is a structure at the distal end of the penis in male mammals. It is the sensitive bulbous structure at the end of the human penis, is anatomically homologous to the clitoral glans of the human female; the glans penis may be smooth, elongated, or divided in other mammals. The glans is or covered by the foreskin in humans, except in those who have been circumcised; the foreskin can be retracted over and past the glans, may automatically retract during an erection. The glans is more known as the "head" or the "tip" of the penis; the medical name comes from the Latin words glans and penis – the Latin genitive of this word has the same form as the nominative. The glans penis is the expanded cap of the corpus spongiosum, it is moulded on the rounded ends of the corpora cavernosa penis, extending farther on their upper than on their lower surfaces. At the summit of the glans is the slit-like vertical external urethral orifice; the circumference of the base of the glans forms a rounded projecting border, the corona glandis, overhanging a deep retroglandular sulcus, behind, the neck of the penis.

The proportional size of the glans penis can vary greatly. On some penises it is much wider in circumference than the shaft, giving the penis a mushroom-like appearance, on others it is narrower and more akin to a probe in shape; the soft cushiony texture of the glans is intended to absorb impact during rigorous instances of copulation. The foreskin maintains the mucosa in a moist environment. Circumcised penises have a glans, permanently exposed and dry. Several studies have suggested the glans is sensitive in both circumcised and uncircumcised penises, while others have reported it is more sensitive in people who are not circumcised. Halata & Munger report that the density of genital corpuscles is greatest in the corona glandis, while Yang & Bradley's report "showed no areas in the glans to be more densely innervated than others."Halata & Spathe reported. Merkel nerve endings and Meissner's corpuscles are not present."Yang & Bradley argue. Some researchers have suggested that the glans has evolved to become acorn, mushroom or cone shaped so that during copulation it acts as a semen-removal device in the vagina of previous sex partners, but this is not supported when looking at primate relatives who have different mating behaviors.

The meatus of the urethra is located at the tip of the glans penis. The epithelium of the glans penis is mucocutaneous tissue. Birley et al. report that excessive washing with soap may dry the mucous membrane which covers the glans penis and cause non-specific dermatitis. Inflammation of the glans penis is known as balanitis, occurs in 3–11% of males. Edwards reported that it is more common in males who have poor hygiene habits or have not been circumcised, it has infection with a wide variety of pathogens. Careful identification of the cause with the aid of patient history, physical examination and cultures, biopsy are essential in order to determine the proper treatment. Meatal stenosis is a late complication of circumcision, which occurs in about 2 to 20 percent of circumcised boys. Male felids are able to urinate backwards by curving the tip of the glans penis backward. In cats, the glans penis is covered with spines. Penile spines occur on the glans of male and female spotted hyenas. In male dogs, the glans penis consists of two parts called the bulbus glandis and pars longa glandis.

The glans of a fossa's penis is spiny except at the tip. In comparison, the glans of felids is spiny, while that of viverrids is smooth and long; the shape of the glans varies among different marsupial species. In most marsupials, the glans is divided; the glans penis is divided into two parts in platypuses and echidnas. The glans penis of the marsh rice rat is averaging 7.3 mm long and 4.6 mm broad. In Thomasomys ucucha the glans penis is rounded and small and is superficially divided into left and right halves by a trough at the top and a ridge at the bottom. Most of the glans is covered except for an area near the tip. Winkelmann's mouse can most be distinguished from its close relatives by its corrugated glans penis; when erect, the glans of a horse's penis increases by 3 to 4 times. The urethra opens within a small pouch at the distal end of the glans. Unlike the human glans, the glans of a horse's penis extends backwards on its shaft. Males of Racey's pipistrelle bat have a egg-shaped glans penis.

The glans penis of a male cape ground squirrel is large with a prominent baculum.
