Mons pubis

The mons veneris (latin, mound of Venus), in female anatomy, is the soft mound of flesh just over the vulva (more generally in mammals it is called the mons pubis), raised above the surrounding area due to a pad of fat lying just beneath it. After puberty it is normally covered with pubic hair to a greater or lesser extent. The labia majora or large lips extend on either side of the vulva, and may also be covered with pubic hair.
