Paraurethral Glands | Skene’s Glands

Paraurethral glands, also commonly known as Skene’s glands or female prostate, are small exocrine glands located on the anterior wall of vagina. They correspond to the male prostate. These glands are surrounded with tissue that swells during sexual arousal.

It has been postulated that paraurethral glands are the source of female ejaculation. However contradicting theories also exist.
