Definitions for earlobe
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word earlobe
earlobe, ear lobe(noun)
the fleshy pendulous part of the external human ear
The human earlobe is composed of tough areolar and adipose connective tissues, lacking the firmness and elasticity of the rest of the pinna. Since the earlobe does not contain cartilage it has a large blood supply and may help to warm the ears and maintain balance. However, earlobes are not generally considered to have any major biological function. The earlobe contains many nerve endings, and for some people is an erogenous zone.
