Provided is a connector configured so that liquid does not collect in a valve body. A connector is provided with: a housing having a flow passage through which liquid passes and a male connector connection section which communicates with the flow passage; and a valve body which consists of an elastic material and which closes the male connector connection section. The deformable section of the valve body has a top surface, a bottom surface, and a slit which is open at the top surface. When the bottom surface of a recess in the top surface of the deformable section is pressed by a male connector, the deformable section is deformed elastically and displaced toward the flow passage of the housing into a state in which an inner surface forming the slit faces the flow passage and in which the top surface is in contact with the front end surface of the male connector and with the outer peripheral surface of the front end section of the male connector.
