hi! before i start to ask all of these questions, i just would like to say thank you, and this website is absolutly amazing and helped me ALOT!
as a summary, im 14, a complete and total virgin, and straight, if that will help at all. what i have questions about are: foreplay (what is that?), masturbation (again, what is that?) and how can you tell when you get an orgasm? i know what they are and why they happen but im not really sure how you can tell when you get one. also, i know there are alot of questions about discharge, and im not really sure if mine is normal. firstly, i get it very, very, heavy all year round. second, it smells really bad and that makes me so self concious. even right after showers i still smell pretty bad, and not only is it embarassing, but really disgusting. and ive tried feminine deoderant but still, it doesnt last forever. lastly, mine is clear and "pasty," but occasionally discolered, or not clear. like sometimes its greenish-clear or just not right looking but i know for sure its not a yeast infection. but most of the time it is normal colered. im just sooo confused and a bit worried so i really need you help with these things, even if its not clear to you or you cannot answer some of these questions, i still really appreciate you reading this and helping other people as well.
i hope all of this made sense to you and thankyou again for everything.

Per the discharge, greenish discharge is often the sign of a bacterial infection. So, you need to go into your GYN, sexual health clinic, or general doctor very soon, especially given how long this may be going on. Untreated infections can lead to pretty serious complications. Always having discharges is normal, as it's how the vagina cleans itself, but it shouldn't be greenish or have a very strong odor.

And do NOT use feminine "deoderants." That may well be how you've gotten an infection to begin with: they're not good for your vagina, and tend to knock its natural flora out of whack.

"Foreplay" is a term used to describe sexual activities people may engage in before an act of sexual intercourse: oral sex, manual sex, making out, etc. Of course, it's a pretty messed-up way of looking at sex,, heterosexist at a minimum, as many people enjoy all those activities AS sex, and many people don't engage in intercourse at all.
