Answer:

The clitoris and the vestibular bulbs.

Explanation:

In the female reproductive system, there are two structures that contain erectile tissue: vascular tissue that becomes engorged with blood.

The clitoris, situated below the pubic bone and just above the urethral opening, is one of these structures.

The vestibular bulbs are located in the labia minora (the space between the labia minora is called the vestibule).
