The Prostatic Plexus is continued from the lower part of the pelvic plexus.
The nerves composing it are of large size.
The nerves supplying the corpora cavernosa consist of two sets, the lesser and greater cavernous nerves, which arise from the forepart of the prostatic plexus, and, after joining with branches from the pudendal nerve, pass forward beneath the public arch.
