Preputial Glands

 

the sebaceous glands of the inner surface of the prepuce of the penis in mammals and humans; their functional importance has not been precisely established. In Artiodactyla they develop in an unpaired preputial pouch, and in some Rodentia they function as scent glands in intraspecific and sexual relations.
