How to use "Labium" in context?

Labium is a small, fleshy, sexually-associated organ located between the anus and the penis in male humans and other animals.

The word "labium" comes from the Latin word "labium", meaning "lip", and this organ is known as the clitoris in females. The labium is similar in shape to a human lip except that it has a lot of folds in it and it is larger in size. The labium is important because it is the organ that covers the opening of the vagina and it is where the male penis inserts during sexual activity.
