I am a virgin and have never properly masturbated before, mainly because I don't really know how. I know the clitoris is supposed to be really sensitive but mine isn't. Whenever I touch or poke it it just feels like I am touching any other part of my body. I feel it, but I don't FEEL it, if you know what I mean. I can't find anything referencing this. Am I normal???

Totally normal. [Smile]

What it sounds like you may be missing is strong arousal. When you touch your clitoris without being aroused, it can often feel like not much at all. When we're aroused, our genitals become much more sensitive.
