Male pelvic floor. Computer artwork of the male pelvic floor muscles seen from below. The pelvic floor provides support to the pelvic organs, such as the bladder and prostate, and maintains continence as part of the anal and urinary sphincters. The penis is at top and the anus is at lower centre. Surrounding the penis and extending around the anus to the spine is the bulbospongiosus, which aids urination and ejaculation. On either side of the penis are the ischiocavernousus muscles, which stabilise the erect penis. Across centre is the transverse perineal muscle. Either side of the anus are the levator ani, which support the pelvic organs.
