On episode two of TNG and the movie First Contact Data states that in the area of sexuality he is "fully functional." Does that mean he has genitals? In episode 13 Lore said that Data was built first. When they find Lore's parts I see no sign of genitals. Did Soong not add them on Lore or does Data not have them either?

  • The answers to the duplicate address his anatomical features. – Valorum Jan 17 '18 at 1:13

    I kinda feel like, when "does Data have genitals" and "why does Data put on the purple clothes" are labeled as duplicates, it may be time to revisit the logic behind the duplicate label. There might be an answer to it among the non-accepted answers there, but a good database generally tries to make sure that a question and its (preferably accepted) answer are in the same place. – Misha R Jan 17 '18 at 6:33

In the TNG episode Inheritance Dr. Soong's widow (and by extension Data's 'mother') says Data was built 'anatomically correct', that since he wasn't bothered by the elements he would often run around naked to the discomfort of the other Omicron Theta colonists. Also in the episode The Naked Now it's implied he had a sexual encounter with Tasha Yar- from these I think it's safe to assume he does have genitals.
