the testicles are homologous to the ovaries.as are most parts of male female anatomy.the clitoral hood becomes the foreskin.
Bartholin's glands in females are homologous to Cowper's glands in males.
Skene's glands in females are homologous to the prostate gland in males.
the clitoral hood in females is homologous to the foreskin in males (they are both known anatomically as the prepuce).
