FEMALE
The sows usually have a smooth swelling over their genital area. Sometimes, it can be bumpy looking, making you think it might be a male! If you gently part the genital opening, on a sow, a "Y" shaped opening should appear.

Male, Adult
It should usually be pretty easy to sex an adult male -- especially in this case. Note on this photo how you can see the ridge of the shaft underneath the skin between the testicles. This is the same 'ridge' that you feel for in babies and young boars as well.

Of course, you can still get a penis to extrude on a neutered male.
