Unhappy Hooded clitoris

Hello everyone. I am new here and have a big problem. It turns out I have a hooded clitoris. To describe it nicely the darn thing is VERY tightly bundled up in skin. There is a VERY SMALL opening but nothing on this earth could pass through it as it is so small.
I am 26 years old and about to be married and I don't think I have ever had an orgasm.
I experience no pleasurable feeling when my fiance touches my clitoris. I can feel it but it just feels like someone touching me. Like if you were to poke me in the shoulder I could feel it but get no pleasure out of it.
Does anyone out there know anything about this? Anything I can do?
I read about the clitoral unhooding but have read mixed reviews about it. Has anyone had it done or know someone that has had it done? Is it done by your doctor or a plastic surgeon?
I really really need help here guys. I don't want to go through life never experiencing this wonderful feeling. I am really afraid that enjoying sex on my wedding night is going to effect me strongly emotionally. This issue causes me a lot of stress and sadness.
PLEASE HELP.

Re: Hooded clitoris

First of all, welcome to Healthboards, glad to have you with us!! Now as to your question, I would suggest that you see a doctor( perhaps a gynecologist) to help you prepare for your first sexual experience.

Re: Hooded clitoris

My suggestion is to get some lubricant and start masturbating big time.... you'll figure out how to work around that hood.... then you can show your soon to be hubby how.

Good luck!!

Re: Hooded clitoris

I have had many sexual experiences. No luck. I have tried masturbating millions of times. No luck. There is just no feeling there. I can't get to it!!! It is completely incased in skin. What do I do!!!

Re: Hooded clitoris

Go to the Ob-gyn. I suppose there are some few cases where a woman must have a circumcision. Your doc will know whether you must have surgery to correct the problem or whether some other solution is appropriate.

Re: Hooded clitoris

Everyone has a hooded clitoris, and many women never retract the hood when they masturbate, so my guess would be that isn't the issue. Orgasm isn't just physical stimulation; it requires suspending thought, being in the moment, and letting go. What are you thinking about when you masturbate or have partner sex? If you're thinking "gosh, I wonder if I'll be able to have an orgasm", or "wonder if I'm taking too long", or anything along those lines, I can pretty much guarantee it'll never happen. Those aren't sexy thoughts. Orgasm requires you to tense your body, but relax your mind - thinking is a no-no. Instead, I'd suggest fantasizing about something that really turns you on.

You might pick up a copy of "For Yourself", by Lonnie Barbach, and "Sex for One" and "Orgasms for Two" by Betty Dodson. If you continue to have difficulty, I'd suggest seeing a sex therapist. They have terrific success with preorgasmic women.

Good luck!

Re: Hooded clitoris

I understand that everyone has a hooded clitoris but aren't they supposed to retract? Like I mentioned before, the opening to the hood is so incredibly small that no way the clitoris could even partly be exposed. It is just impossible.
To answer your question, yes after so many years of never being able to reach orgasm I am begining to dread sex. I know that nothing is going to happen. I also realize that I need to stop that if I want to even have a chance of getting passed this.
My fiance and I did an experiement last night. I closed my eyes and he touched the clitoris and I swear it was no more pleasurable than him poking me in the ribs. It is just completely covered and I have tried and tried to retract the hood but it just wont.
I am getting a little discourage because when I read about hooded clitoris I thought maybe I had an answer that it just wasn't me. But is sounds like I am being told that this is the way everyone is and it is just me.
My fiance and I are going to invest in a good vibrator and see if maybe we can get something going on down there. I was hoping there was a way to maybe stretch the opening so the clitoris could maybe come out to play.

Re: Hooded clitoris

I was also going to say that everyone has a hooded clitoris, but since you know that...

And I agree with Sparkleflower on this one: not all women actually like to have the hood pulled back exposing the clitoris to direct stimulation..

Also, since some women don't even need clitoral stimulation to have an orgasm (those small few who can have them from vaginal stimulatin alone), the clitoris is not necessarily THEE place to focus all your attention. And the clitoris also extends inside, with 'arms' along the vagina, so maybe you should be exploring both areas.

Re: Hooded clitoris

I think that if I could get access to it I would enjoy it. But it is just traped in there. I have tried and tried to get pleasure from it anyway and I just can't. I don't know what to do, I mean physically; I don't know how to work it. So many people say show your fiance how you like it. I would if I could figure it out!

Re: Hooded clitoris

Why don't you ask your doctor if you need surgery or whatever. I mean if you can't figure it out with your own body nobody on here can help you. This is something only a doctor can fix if you are closed up like you say you are.

Re: Hooded clitoris

I am so sorry you are having that problem. I wanted to let you know that I have been researching labia surgery and I found a doctor in Atlanta that does this and all kinds of surgeries including clitoris UNHOODING. Talk to your gyno about it and they may can refer you to someone. Of course you know you need to go to someone that specializes in this. Which is the situation where I'm at right now. Unfortunately I can't relate exactly because mine is TOOO sensitive. Thats not a good thing either. Good luck.

Re: Hooded clitoris

I do enjoy porn and it does turn me on but then I am all turned on with no working equipment to play with. So I don't watch it that much anymore.

Re: Hooded clitoris

Have you ever tried to use a vibrator? This would be stronger and you might feel the sensations more.

They have what is called a clitoral hood reduction surgery.
