In this, the missionary position, the penis (blue) is seen to be bent in a boomerang shape. Beneath the penis, the testes can be seen (round). The woman's uterus is brown (upper left). Their bladders are white, and the vertebrae of their lower backs are purple (upper left/right). This technique allows anatomical study of male and female responses to arousal.
