1. A waterproof connector comprising:
a housing made of an insulating resin and having a counter connector accommodating section that is a recess opening in a fitting direction in which the waterproof connector is fitted with a counter connector and that accommodates the counter connector; and
one or more contacts formed integrally with the housing,
wherein the one or more contacts each have a contact section projecting from, as viewed in the fitting direction, a bottom section of the counter connector accommodating section of the housing in the counter connector accommodating section so as to be connected to a contact of the counter connector, a contact-side board connecting section exposed from the housing and connected to a board, and a contact-side fixed section connecting the contact section and the contact-side board connecting section and embedded in the housing, and
wherein the housing has at least one contact adhesion generating recess that is formed in the bottom section of the counter connector accommodating section to communicate with an inside of the counter connector accommodating section and that allows an adhesion force directed to the contact-side fixed section of each of the one or more contacts to be generated at a portion of the housing in contact with the contact-side fixed section by means of water pressure occurring when the inside of the counter connector accommodating section is immersed in water.
