clitoral legs

clitoral legs

A popular term for the normal part of the external male and female genitalia consisting of spongy tissue, which arises in the corpus cavernosum on either side of the penis in males (known as crura once each becomes a distinct “branch” or leg) or in the clitoris in females (where the “legs” are more distinct, as they diverge shortly after arising in the clitoris, passing through the labia on either side of the vaginal introitus).
