When I was 3, I really wanted a baby sister, since I was kinda lonely. I have an older brother, but he has autism, so I couldn't really communicate with him. Anyway, I used to believe that you could just get a baby from the hospital, like a "baby store" or something. I begged my parents for a sister named Dashalina (which was also what I had named my favorite pink stuffed animal dog), and they asked where we would get it from. I had always said the same thing each time: "from the hospital." My parents jokingly asked if I would steal it from another person, which made me cry, since I felt guilty and sad just from the thought of it. I knew that the hospital wasn't a "baby factory" where babies are manufactured, but it had never occurred to me that the hospitals had to get the baby from somewhere, and that they don't just magically appear out of nowhere. I recall my mom telling me that the baby came from her stomach, and me asking, "how did it get it THERE? Did you eat it?" It wasn't until I was 7 when I discovered sex. I didn't know that sex was how I was born, though, until I was about 8 and a half. And when I was 10, I read this puberty book for girls (it was surprisingly interesting), and I found out that the man's "thingy" has to go into the woman's "thingyhole." I am currently 11 and in 6th grade.

To younger kids: Don't try to rush your life. Being a kid is exciting and you only get this opportunity once. Enjoy life. Have the most fun you can. After this you will never get to do it again.

Okay, so I like this TV show called Star Trek the Next Generation, and this character called Deanna Troi has this big, crazy hairstyle, and I saw a picture someone had drawn of Data (an android who's a character on the show) asking Captain Picard (another character) what a blowjob is and Picard replying, "Ask Troi". I thought that because of Troi's hair, that a blowjob was a type of hairstyle.

Later, when I learnt it was sexual, I just thought it was simply a word for sex, nothing specific.

top belief!

Up until about 7 when my friend Zoe told me how babies were born and made, I had a thought that exactly right after the groom and bride kissed, she would just need to go to the hospital even though she had a flat belly. Then at the hospital a baby just popped out and they had a baby. The woman had no pain whatsoever and she was mom. That was my belief until Zoe trotted along and ruined my belief xD

For years, I thought that the "balls" on a penis were on the tip. I believed this well into my teenage years.

About sex.

When I was at intermediate age, I thought the penis and vagina when I had puberty classes back in the day were a puzzle. Connecting one piece to another. When I grew up at college I knew that sex was a thing that parents do when they get married. I now know that God has made sex a beautiful thing between a husband and wife.

When I was a little girl, I thought all babies came from 'China' (a Vagina)
