In female human anatomy, Skene's glands or the Skene glands (/skn/ SKEEN, also known as the lesser vestibular glands, paraurethral glands[1]) are glands located around the lower end of the urethra. The glands are surrounded by tissue that swells with blood during sexual arousal, and secrete a fluid from openings near the urethra, particularly during orgasm.
