  1. Glans penis

    In male human anatomy, the glans penis is the sensitive bulbous structure at the distal end of the penis. The glans is anatomically homologous to the clitoral glans of the human female. Typically, the glans is completely or partially covered by the foreskin, except in men who have been circumcised, though the foreskin can generally be retracted over and past the glans. The glans is also commonly referred to as the "head of the penis", while common British slang terms include "helmet" and "bell end" in reference to its distinctive shape. The medical name comes from the Latin word glans and penis – the Latin genitive of this word has the same form as the nominative.
