It is indeed a challenge to teach the cadaveric anatomy of the perineum to the undergraduate medical students. The anatomy teacher often fails to make the student understand the exact arrangement and attachments of the fasciae in the perineum in spite of his/her best attempts in the dissection hall and lecture classes. We prepared a video to demonstrate the arrangements of fasciae in the male perineum. The video had a combination of clips of cadaveric dissection, diagrams drawn on a blackboard and the demonstration of the arrangement of fasciae using a simple cloth model. The video was shown to students after they had the routine dissection and lecture classes about the perineum. There was a significant difference between the pre and post test scores. The opinion survey also indicated that the video was very effective.
