Default Therminator ??

I'm considering buying a therminator for wort cooling. the pix i've seen show that the cooling water goes in and out of the therminator via garden hose fittings, both male. if i connect my garden hose to a spigot with the female end i only have a male end at the other end of the hose. how do i connect the two male ends? (please, no comedians)

I recommend these from McMaster, part 72105T88
"Garden Hose to Garden Hose Connector Brass, 3/4" Female Garden Hose Thread, Swivel"

You can also get these from Lowe's/Ace/HomeDepot.

Be sure you get the swivel versions otherwise, it'll be a PITA tto connect and disconnect the hose. I made THAT mistake right outta the box.
