In brief: Pelvis
The obturator foramen is the round space between the ischium and pubis bones in the pelvis; it is mostly covered by a membrane called the obturator membrane; the obturator nerve/artery/vein exit the pelvis via the obturator groove+canal; 2 muscles: obturator internus + externus originate along the bones, a few other structures in the area are named "obturator ___" to signify their location.
