When I was a child, I used to believe a sentence that the people said " when a girl and a boy embrace or kiss, that girl will be pregnant". Why do people say that? Because our culture is very conservative, most parents won't teach their children about sex, even avoid this topic because they think this is a shy thing. So there is the origin of this sentence. Until I learned biology, I realized that it was a big lie!

When I was four years old, I used to believe that the previous sister or brother can choose the gender of next child in family.

My mum allaways asks:
"A brother or a sister, which do you prefer? "
My sister said she wants a girl and I borned.
I said I want a boy and my brother borned.

So I used to believe this theory very much.

When I learned that prostitutes were women who sold themselves to men, I pictured them sit in shop windows, like mannequins, and being pushed around in trolleys.

I used to believe that birth and labour happened in a matter of minutes, up to ten. Not that it took hours and hours. I didn’t think it was painful, just a little stressful and that the shots were taken every day to calm you down.

I used to think condoms were meant to be solid, instead of rubber or elastic, like unblown balloons.

This one is quite obvious since 100% of all kids who are too young to know about sex would believe, that babies would be conceived anally, and periods were just random bleeding, like piles. Gross but hilarious.

When I was 12, I had no idea what sex was about, I thought that with kissing women became pregnant, so I did not kiss until recently. Until we started talking about it in schools

When I was learning about stranger danger, people were so vague with descriptions like "saying things that make you uncomfortable", "touching you in a way that makes you uncomfortable", and "talking about sex" that I thought that:

A) Any stranger who accidentally scared you or tried to hug you when you didn't want a hug, etc was bad news, and...

B) It was illegal to tell a child how babies were made unless you were their parent or teacher.
