The penis glands are located in the bulbous tip of the penis head. They are small, rounded gland bodies, which are in the erectile tissue on the end of the male clitoris. The term penis glands refer to the cap-shaped expansion of the corpus spongiosum that covers the corpora cavernosa penis.
The widest portion of the penis glands are located around the base of the penis, and are known as the corona glands.
In some cultures, typically African American, it is common to have a foreskin, or hairless flap of skin, which covers the penis glands. However, for the majority of Caucasians, and Christians it is often a custom to remove the foreskin during a process commonly known as circumcision.
Penis glands are responsible for secreting fluids which stimulate the secretion of seminal fluids to be purged by the penis, and act as a slippery lubrication during sexual arousal and sexual intercourse. They play a key role in reproductive glands, such as the testes and sexual reproduction.
