It’s the perineum

Demosthenes's avatar

The line (I always thought of it like a “seam”) that extends from the anus, down the perineum, and onto the scrotum is called the perineal raphe. “It is the result of a fetal developmental phenomenon whereby the scrotum and penis close toward the midline and fuse.”

(If that is indeed what you’re talking about. I’m not really sure by the wording of your question).

Well. This’ll probably get moded, but it’s the “taint.”

Heat me out Mods. It’s in the Urban Dictionary….

Yeah, “taint” is another name for the perineum (also called “gooch”, look it up), but I think @RedDeerGuy1 was talking about the line that runs through the middle of it as well as down the middle of the scrotum, the “raphe”. :)

Females have a perineum too.

@Grimmy Did you know women have them, too? I did not.

MrGrimm888's avatar

Yall don’t really have one. There’s really no distance from the vaginas, to the butthole, in most cases. Some are almost interconnected.

@Grimmy I bow to your experience. Haha!
You really make me laugh sometimes.

In women, it’s the thing they usually have to stitch up after child birth, unless the obgyn delivering gradually stretches it so it won’t rip.

^I used to work with a woman who had that procedure, after her second child was born. But she sneezed, in the shower, and it tore the stitches. She used to refer to herself, as a “one hole’er”
She was hysterical….

I was fortunate enough to have a doctor who knew what he was doing, and he respected the fact that I wanted to do it naturally because I was an idiot. I didn’t tear. Got billed for an epidural I didn’t have, and for stitches I didn’t have. I raised a bit of hell over that.
