For the longest time the only penises I had ever seen were my brothers' when their diapers got changed or they took baths. And I didn't have any confusion about it because my brothers had always been in my life, with one being my twin. I figured they all looked just like that if they were boy's parts. Years later, finding out about circumcision, I was totally disgusted. I yelled at my mom saying "How could you cut it off! That's not fair! You wouldn't cut anything off of me!" I cried for like an hour over the whole thing. To me it was just as wrong as cutting someone's finger off. To this day I still think it's sort of cruel.

As a young girl who grew up with brothers, I of course saw them take a bath or get a diaper change, so I knew they had different genitals right off the bat. When my mom became pregnant, she also explained, very vaguely, that it took a boy and a girl to make a baby and then mommy carried it in her tummy until it was ready to be born. You'd think that would tell me enough to put two and two together and figure out the actual act but for years I didn't have a clue. I knew it took a penis and a vagina, but as far as I knew, neither of those parts could do anything but pee. I didn't know about erections, or that my body was supposed to fit anything inside it, so I figured that when a girl and boy were ready to have a baby, they got naked, they snuggled and then the boy peed on her. Hey I was pretty darn close if you think about it!

Growing up it was my mom, dad, my younger sister and I. At some point I remember asking my mom if she had my sister and our dad had me. I knew there was a difference between boys and girls so it made sense that boys gave birth to boys, and girls gave birth to girls.

After playing doctor with a neighbor girl I observed the anatomical differences between the genders. I remember thinking that a girl's vagina was like a secret pocket and that it would be a great place to hide cookies. Lol, decades later I mentioned this to my wife and she said I was gross.

I used to believe that sex was only done in the hospital, and doctors would watch as the couple had sex. I believed this until I was 13.

I was born via c-section and I used to think that all babies were born via c-section, open the mother's belly they used a chainsaw and a pair of kitchen scissors, and then a baby just jumped out.

I used to believe that women got pregnant from drinking a special type of juice called pregnancy juice that would make you pregnant with just one sip. I saw my mom's friend drinking red juice one day and a few days later i saw her pregnant, so i believed that she drank pregnancy juice until she explained.
