Cleft of venus

Latin rima pudendi
Gray's subject #270 1265

The cleft of venus (also called the pudendal cleft, pudendal fissure, or rima pudendi[1]) is a part of the vulva, the furrow at the base of the mons pubis where it divides to form the labia majora. The name is a reference to the Roman goddess of love, Venus.

In some human females, the clitoral hood and labia minora protrude through the cleft of venus; in others, they do not.
