Mons Pubis - an article

Mons pubis

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In human anatomy or in mammals in general, the mons pubis (Latin, pubic mound) is the soft mound of flesh present in both genders just above the genitals, raised above the surrounding area due to a pad of fat lying just beneath it which protects the pubic bone. After puberty it is normally covered with pubic hair to a greater or lesser extent, as may be the labia majora in females or the scrotal sac in males.

In females this fleshy area above the vulva is also called the mons veneris (Latin, mound of Venus) and divides into two to form the labia majora either side of the furrow known as the "Cleft of Venus".
