You go at the end of the tail and you can't see it from just looking at it but you could probe it, or role it look up how to sex a snake my rolling it, you role your thumb along it until something pops out(research before doing so) easier if you do it with younger snakes

Snakes breed in giant orgy balls. It doesn't matter what gender it is.

It's North American and it is rated at Least Concern which is all the way at the end of the scale, so you can keep it without environmentalists complaining.

I found this on wikipedia when reading about the snake. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemipenes

I heard about these before but thought they were too weird to believe in.

It also looks like it is going to take a long too get eggs.

This is copy pasted from here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corn_snake

Corn snakes are relatively easy to breed. First they have to go through a cooling (also known as brumation) period that takes usually 60–90 days long. This is to get them ready for breeding and to tell them that its time to reproduce. Corns brumate at around 10 to 16 °C (50 to 61 °F) in a place where they can not get disturbed and not worry about predators. When it's summer they go out to warm up to their regular temperature.


Baby corn snakes hatching from their eggs
Corn snakes usually breed shortly after the winter cooling. The male courts the female primarily with tactile and chemical cues, then everts one of his hemipenes, inserts it into the female, and ejaculates his sperm. If the female is ovulating, the eggs will be fertilized, and she will begin sequestering nutrients into the eggs, then secreting a shell.
Egg-laying occurs slightly more than a month after mating, with 12–24 eggs deposited into a warm, moist, hidden location. Once laid the adult snake abandons the eggs and does not return to them. The eggs are oblong with a leathery, flexible shell. Approximately 10 weeks after laying, the young snakes use a specialized scale called an egg tooth to slice slits in the egg shell, from which they emerge at about 5 inches in length. They can grow up to 4 to 6 feet.

Lift it up and look underneath. That's how I know my puppy's a boy.
