It originates on the pubic body just below the pubic crest and inserts into the middle third of linea aspera.

It is innervated by the obturator nerve, specifically branches of the anterior rami of spinal nerves L2, L3, and L4.

The adductor longus muscle forms the medial wall of the femoral triangle.
