mating system creation by using boolean difference

Hi! 

 

I need to create a mating system that allows two objects to be combined as you can see the attached image. I used the male piece by using "combine function", but the female part should be bigger than the male piece. Do I have just to increase the female volume with "Transform"? Or Is there any adjustment in boolean difference?

When you create the male piece, duplicate it in place, then transform/scale it as desired and use the larger duplicate to subtract the volume for the female piece.
