Genital branch of genitofemoral nerve
The genital branch of the genitofemoral nerve (external spermatic nerve) passes outward on the Psoas major, and pierces the fascia transversalis, or passes through the deep inguinal ring; it then descends behind the spermatic cord to the scrotum, supplies the Cremaster, and gives a few filaments to the skin of the scrotum.
Additional recommended knowledge
In the female, it accompanies the round ligament of the uterus, and is lost upon it.
