Male Plugs mate with Female receptacles. When mated the body of the plug is enveloped by the female USB socket.

For Full Size types, mated connectors are held in place by sprung tangs on the female shell which latch into two cavities on the male shell. 

Micro types have the opposite arrangement with tangs on the male shell and cavity on female shells, this is a key reason why USB Micro receptacles are suitable for ten thousand mating cycles.

Type C connectors have internal spring tangs on the male shell.
