belly buttonsShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to think that your whole stomach was called a belly button, and that your whole midsection was part of it.
I used to believe that if you clean out the dirt from your belly button you would die. An adult told me that and I believed them. It made sense to me because I knew that's where the umbilical cord came from.
When I was young. I thought that if you touched your belly button, that yOu could transport anywhere in the world! So I kept prodding at my innie, hoping that I would be transported to Candy Land. I told all my friends and that poked at theirs and mine. Now, I have a little piercing in it of a candy to ring back the memories!!
When I was little, my brother told me that if he caught me and pushed my belly button...my legs would fall off.
My dad was a doctor; so I believed him when he told me that if I unscrewed and unscrewed and unscrewed my bellybutton, my butt would fall off. I still don't like my bellybutton to be touched.
when I was younger, my cousin never stopped playing with his belly button. my grampa once told him that if he continued doing it, his bum would fall off.
as a little girl, I believed my childhood best friend (alan) when he told me that my belly button could also write on the fence like his did - wink wink... i almost got a hernia trying to make my belly button poke out so i could spray/write my name on the fence. my mom asked me what i was doing and for some strange reason i wasn't allowed to play with alan anymore...
When my baby sister was first born (and I was 4), my older sister convinced me that she was an alein because she had an "out-ie" belly button
I wasn't sure to put this in sex or body parts, but whatever. My story is that I used to believe that girls covered their top because they were embarrassed to show their bellybutton. My sister and mother usually wore single-piece bathing suits, so I never was confused by two-piece bathing suits.
I grew up thinking babies came from their mommy's belly buttons! I literally thought your belly button would get big, the baby would crawl out, and then the baby would forget how to crawl again lol.
I was 12 or so before I had the "talk" and learned the truth.
My mom and husband still pick on me about this.
I used to think that if someone poked my belly button, it would open up. I would freak out when someone would poke my belly button. I have my mom to blame.
When I was 3, my Dad told me belly buttons were for filling with salt to dunk your celery in when you were eating it in bed.
my sister told me once when catching me playing with my belly button that if i poked it too much i would turn inside out. I was so scared i started crying thinking that i might of done it too much already when i asked her about this she just said "all we can do is wait and see" i was absolutely terrified that i was going to die and to this day i dont like touching my belly button, im 22.
When my mom was pregnant with my sister (I was about 3 1/2 or 4) I noticed that her normally innie belly button got flatter and more shallow as her belly grew. I assumed this was the purpose of a belly button- it was just twisted up extra skin that would unfurl to make room when the woman's belly grew when she was pregnant. I assumed men had them for the same reason they had nipples- decoration.
I was informed by my mother when i was young that if I scrubbed my belly button too hard in the bath, it would 'untie''. Until about the age of 12 I was wary of this situation.
I asked my dad (when he was naked after taking a bath) what his belly button was. He said that it was from where the Indian shot him with an arrow. It never occurred to me to ask where MY navel came from.
my dad told me the day that u can unscrew ur belly button so i tried nd theen he sed no by hospital so i googled it only 2 find out he was liein nd am 16 lol
When I was little my brother used to pile pillows on top of my stomach and lay on them. Since I was clastrophobic, it felt like I couldn't breathe. For years I continued to think you could breathe out of your belly button and thats why I couldn'y breathe when he did that.
When I was little and learned about how babies were made, I also learned what exactly a belly
button was. Well, the fact that it was just a knot scared me, because I thought it would unravel if I messed with it too much, and all of my insides would come pouring out. Since then I've always hated my belly
button being touched, even though I eventually learned that it can't happen.
I was convinced that bellybuttons did something and worked like actual buttons. for a week I was running around my house pressing my bellybutton seeing what it would turn on. then, when I realized my bellybutton wasn't turning anything on I told my mom I was running away to the circus because I was broken. she laughed and I was so confused.
