Muški spolni organ, neparan organ, valjkastog oblika i služi za kopulaciju, pri čemu izbacuje spermu u usminu. Kroz ud prolazi muška mokraćna cev, gde se i završava jednim proširenjem u prednjem delu uda. Oko mokraćne cevi u udu nalaze se šupljikave tvorevine. Kad se one napune krvlju, ud postane čvrst i u tom stanju može da obavi kopulaciju i izbaci spermu (ejakulacija). Spolja ud je obložen kožom koja je na vrhu uda dvostruka i može da se pomera. Ovaj deo kože, nazvan udna navlaka, može da trajno steže vrh uda i pričinjava smetnje, jer ne može da se pomera. Ova nepravilnost naziva se fimoza i mora da se operiše. (lat.)
Nerd, also jerk.
Male copulative organ. Male reproductive organ containing the urethra, the channel through which urine and semen are voided. It transfers sperm to the female reproductive tract to fertilize the ovum. In mammals, the penis is made erect by vessels that fill with blood, and in most mammals (but not humans) is stiffened by a bone.
Snakes and lizards have a paired structure that serves as a penis; other reptiles have a single organ. A few birds, mainly ducks and geese, also have a type of penis, as do snails, barnacles, and some other invertebrates. Many insects have a rigid, nonerectile male organ, usually referred to as an intromittent organ.
A 1995 us study showed the average length of an erect human penis to be 12.8 cm/5 in (smaller than is popularly assumed).
