Cowper's Gland

The Cowper's gland, or bulbourethral gland, is one of two small structures about the size of peas, which is located below the prostate gland. It is composed of many tubes whose linings secrete a fluid that is released in response to sexual stimulation to provide some lubrication to the end of the penis in preparation for sexual intercourse. The female reproductive organs, however, provide most of the lubricating.
