After Dark Body Anatomy

Did you know that there is a lot more to being male, female, or any gender other than the sex you were assigned to at birth?

Take charge of your sexual health by getting to know your body’s reproductive “organs” and how they work. Have you ever heard that many parts of your body can be considered erogenous zones other than your breasts, nipples and neck? I think you get the point.

Get in tuned with your body’s sexual anatomy and discover how your body parts can be aroused once stimulated by just a simple touch or feeling whether it be physical contact or mental intuition.

The vagina is a tube that connects your vulva with your cervix and uterus. It’s what babies and menstrual blood leave the body through. It’s also where some people put penises, fingers, sex toys, menstrual cups, and/or tampons. Your vagina is really stretchy, and expands when you feel turned on.

The tip of the clitoris (AKA glans) is located at the top of your vulva, where your inner lips meet. Everyone’s is a different size. It can be about as small a pea or as big as a thumb. The tip of the clitoris is covered by the clitoral hood.

The cervix divides your vagina and uterus, located right between the two. It looks like a donut with a tiny hole in the middle. This hole connects your uterus and your vagina. It lets menstrual blood out and sperm in. Your cervix stretches open (dilates) during childbirth.

The uterus is a pear-shaped muscular organ about the size of a small fist. It’s sometimes called the womb because it’s where a fetus grows during pregnancy. During sexual arousal, the lower part of your uterus lifts toward your belly button. That’s why your vagina gets longer when you’re turned on. It’s called “tenting.”

Fallopian tubes
The fallopian tubes are 2 narrow tubes. They carry eggs from your ovaries to your uterus. Sperm travels through them to try to fertilize your egg.



Glans Penis 
The glans is also called the head or tip of the penis. The opening of your urethra is here. This is where pre-ejaculate and semencome out of, and it’s where you pee out of.

The foreskin is a patch of skin that covers and protects the head. When the penis gets hard, the foreskin pulls back and the tip is exposed. Sometimes foreskin is circumcised (when a doctor surgically removes your foreskin) soon after birth, so not everyone has it.

The scrotum is the sac of skin that hangs below the penis. The scrotum holds the testicles and keeps them at the right temperature. If it’s too cold, the scrotum pulls your testicles closer to the body. If it's too warm, the testicles hang away from the body.

The testicles are two ball-like glands inside your scrotum. They make sperm and hormones like testosterone.

The epididymis is a tube where the sperm matures. It connects each testicle to each vas deferens.  it holds the sperm before a male ejaculates.

Vas Deferens
A vas deferens is a long, narrow tube that carries sperm from the epididymis to the seminal vesicles when a male ejaculates. There are two of them — one connected to each epididymis.

Seminal Vesicles
Seminal vesicles are two small organs that produce semen, the fluid that sperm moves around in. They’re located below your bladder.

Prostate Gland
The prostate gland makes a fluid that helps the sperm move. It’s about the size of a walnut or golf ball. The prostate gland is sensitive to pressure or touch in a way that many people find pleasurable.
