Kinsey Confidential Podcast: Perineal Raphe (that line on a guy’s scrotum)

Recently at Kinsey Confidential, we received a question from a man about that line that looks like a "seam" on a guy’s genitals. If you’ve ever wondered what that is, now is your chance to find out all about the perineal raphe and other raphes on our bodies. You can listen to the audipodcast of the man’s question – and my answer – below. To learn more about our Kinsey Confidential podcasts or to find other episodes (we have many!) please visit our Kinsey Confidential web site.
