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.
I learnt about genetics when I was, like, nine, but didn't learn about porn until way later, so I used to think that if something was X-rated, it was for women (which was why a little boy might get in trouble watching an X-rated movie).
I was a scholarly young lass, so I liked reading Wikipedia, but one day, I was reading the article for "sexual reproduction" and I thought I'd get in trouble if my parents found out.
Up until very recently, I thought "S&M" stood for "Scully & Mulder".
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.
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
When I was about 6 years old, I thought "condom" was short for "condominium!"
When I was little I thought a condom was short for condominiam
