Obviously if it was for lustful purposes it was a sin.

No. I was basically trying to figure out my own anatomy, if that makes sense.

There's no sin in touching yourself without lust or the desire for sexual pleasure (How can one clean oneself without touching oneself? How can one perform exams, like checking for growths or tumors on oneself, or use certain medicines, tampons, etc.? How can doctors do their jobs?). The human body isn't filthy. 

It's "missing the mark" -- sin -- when it goes to masturbation, engaging in lust, engaging in sexual activity outside of marriage, etc.

Catholics aren't Puritans.
