The corpus spongiosum is also considered erectile tissue. This area, however, does not become as enlarged as the other two during erection, for it contains more fibrous tissue and less space; unlike the corpora cavernosa, the corpus spongiosum has a constant blood flow during erection. The corpora cavernosa and corpus spongiosum are enclosed by a circular layer of elastic tissue.
This in turn is covered by a thin layer of skin. The skin, which is slightly penis în engleză in colour than the rest of the body, is loose and folded while the penis is in a flaccid state.

At birth or during early childhood, the foreskin may be removed by an operation called circumcision.
