So as a child I masterbated all the time, though I didn't know really what I was doing, just that it felt good.
I am sixteen now and only very recently realized that I don't really have a clit... or it's small and hard and doesn't feel anything.
I'm wondering if I hurt myself when I was young? And is there a way to fix it?

Often your clitoris is a tougher item to find. In different women it is even in a slightly different position but never far from where you'd expect. Perhaps you don't know exactly where it is? No offense but almost entirely every bit of the vaginal area is sensitive to some forms of stimuli. Meaning perhaps what you thought was your clitoris actually wasn't it but on the other hand was still sensitive to touch. They aren't really just large objects that protrude themselves out from you. You must find it. (being that there is a sheathing that hides it known as your clitoral hood) Most people do not realize it but it actually runs down most of the downward path to your entrance. Try tracing directly up and spreading you lips while drawing the upward a bit and you'll see a small area you may find to be VERY sensitive. Be careful as it is so sensitive that even the slightest of too harsh a touch will hurt or cause discomfort rather than pleasure you. Also your clitoris is not nearly as detectable unless you are aroused. Much more noticeable if it has been directly stimulated as it engorges and grows a bit and will get tighter/harder and more sensitive yet less pained by touch. I being a man do not have perfect information but these are some of the things have learned from personal experience and I hope I have helped you. :] Good Luck [ ScottFallen's advice column | Ask ScottFallen A Question ]

That could help you determine that there's nothing wrong with the way your clitoris looks like and that you do in fact have one as does every female.
Also, you can't break, damage or make it permanently insensitive or non-functional. You couldn't permanently hurt yourself as a child either. It's likely a matter of always doing something the exact same way or too often that it no longer pleases you the same. In that case stop for awhile. You're fine, your anatomy is and works as it's supposed to. Nothing to fret over. [ solidadvice4teens's advice column | Ask solidadvice4teens A Question ]
