Glans penis

 

This is the most sensitive part of the penis and it is its head. It is best seen when the penis is erect in sexual arousal in the uncircumcised state. The circumcised penis has its glans penis clearly seen and exhibited as its head. It is the homologue of the glans clitoris in the female. The circumcised penis when erect, the prepuce retracts, allowing the organ to come out. It then presents with a root, shaft, neck and a very sensitive head called the glans penis whose proximal edge is called the corona glandis.
