The pubic mound is a mass of fatty tissue located over the pubic bone that is found in all mammals, including men and women. The female pubic mound forms the front of the vulva, dividing into the labia majora on either side of the pudendal cleft.
The pubic mound is naturally covered in coarse pubic hair and scent glands which distribute pheromones, sexual stimulus scents, and sweat.
The pubic mound is also known by its Latin name, Mons Pubis, or Mons for short. The female pubic mound is also sometimes known as the Mons Venus, in reference to the Roman goddess of love, sex, fertility, and beauty, or by the Latin term for this, Mons Veneris.
