male connection (connector)


Explanation:
The first answer was correct in that it seems like what it sounds like.......all electronic connections are male or female (innie or outie) the innies are female, the outies are male - the animal male and female thing was used to make the dinstinction because it was universally understood. Hope this helps you! Good luck!
