The tube, consisting of an internal mucous coat and an external coat made up of two layers of muscular fibers, the internal being longitudinal and the external circular, which serves for voiding the urine, and in the male sex for the ejaculation of the semen. In the adult male it is about 9 inches in length and forms a portion of the penis. It is divided into three portions; the prostatic, where it passes through the prostate gland; the membranous, or intermediate part; and the spongy, or that which is surrounded by erectile tissue (the corpus spongiosum). Its mucous lining is freely supplied, except near the meatus urinarius, with a large number of glands (glands of Littre) and pouchlike recesses. Into the prostatic portion the ejaculatory ducts open. Except during the passage of urine or semen it is collapsed, with its longest diameter directed transversely. In the female it is about 1 1/2 inches in length, is highly distensible, and is lodged in the anterior wall of the vagina.
