Are you suppose to wash the clitoris?

A friend told me you should wash it with plain water but do I really need to? I'm fifteen and never washed it before and I've been just fine

Update:

Just so everyone knows I am indeed a girl and my friend actually said this. I have never heard of anyone doing this which is why I was confused and wanted to ask

Update 2:

In case if your confused I'm talking about pulling back the clitoral hood and washing the actual clitoris.

    That is odd. The vagina itself is self cleaning. You don’t need to do a thing. You only to need to wash the outer parts, like the labia majors and your vulva.

    Just letting soapy water run over your private area is good enough to clean your clitoris.

    Yes, during a shower It makes sense to me, as part of cleaning your whole outer vaginal area. You should be able to use 2 fingers to pull back your clitoral hood, and one or 2 fingers of the other hand to apply any soapy water in the shower. Make sure to rinse well. I'm a man- I do wash my frenulum (the small bit of skin behind the head of the penis) this way, in the shower.

     I don't know that you need to wash the clit specifically by itself. You should definitely use at least plain water, if not water and soap, to wash between your legs though. Not the internal part, obviously. Just the outside. Depending on the size of your individual clitoris it may be hiding under the clitoral hood. Perhaps she feels the need to pull that back and wash the glans head itself. I think if you've got soap suds in the area and you rinse really well (splash some water around)...probably get everything you need to.

    yes wash with soap and water! And rinse well with clear water. it amazes me that moms don't teach their daughters about personal hygiene.

    Clearly this is written by a guy who has never seen female anatomy. A real female no matter what age wouldn't ask this

    I assume when you take a shower it gets wet and clean? Then that is all you need to do.  People have very weird notions.
