What is precum?
Precum is a colorless fluid released by the penis during sexual arousal. It originates in the Cowper’s and Littre glands next to the urethra (below the prostate gland and along the urethra, respectively). Pre-ejaculate acts as a lubricant that allows sperm to easily pass through the urethra and eliminates discomfort during intercourse. It also neutralizes the acidity of both urine and the vagina, which may harm sperm, to establish a more alkaline environment that’s more sperm-friendly.
