Illustration of scrotum showing vas deferens, epididymis and testisThe pouch of thin skin behind and below the base of the penis that contains and supports the testicles is the scrotum. It is divided into two compartments, one for each testicle, separated by a ridge of skin (raphe), and the left side usually hangs lower than the right in right handed men. The skin is usually a darker colour than the skin of the adjacent thigh in most races, and contains more oil glands and fewer hairs than other skin. The bag carrying the testicles is the scrotum.
