A male (often abbreviated as M) is a person who has the identity and characteristics of a man. When displayed on a FetLife profile this is abbreviated to M.

Male is also often used as a medical term to describe sex rather than gender. The medical use of this term describes a person who is influenced by the presence of testosterone in the womb and is born with a reproductive system that includes a penis, testicles and prostate. The sex you are assigned when you were born is often described by abbreviations such as AMAB (Assigned Male At Birth).
