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
I used to think that condom was short for condominium. I overheard some teenagers talking about condoms at the park and I was just guessing they were talking about condominiums. I found out the truth when I was 15.
Used to believe that a condom was a little fold-up bag that you feed to your dog so it poop in a bag.
My husband found a (unopened) condom in his parents' room and when he asked what it was his dad told him it was ear medicine. lol
I once found a condom wrapper in my parent's drawer but I was a good kid and didn't touch it( thank god!). As I got older, my mom saw this beanie when we were out shopping and she tried it on and said,"Ew, looks like a condom." The store was real quiet and I totally broke the silence by asking her loudly."WHATS A CONDOM?" When I got even older, me and this girl were talking and we somehow got to the subjects of condoms and the guy behing us, named Michael, was snooping in our convorsation and I was like, "Do you even know what a condom is?" And he said, "Yeah, it's ketchup!" Me and the girl started laughing so hard we died in class. He thought we meant condiments.
I hadn't heard of oral sex yet, but I had seen old movies where people smoke after sex. I came to the conclusion that flavored condoms were made for non smokers to suck on after sex as an alternative to cigarettes.
I believed for an embarrassingly long time that before you have sex you should blow the condom up like a balloon to check for holes.
When I was younger, people would ask me where I lived. I would say a condom. Later on I found out it was a condominium. Guess that's why everyone gave me strange looks...
Instead of ANY babies, I was thinking that a condom prevented TOO MANY babies from being made. Because of how most animals give birth to many babies at a time, I assumed that humans would do the same, without the usage of condoms, and that condoms allow us to only have one or two babies (therefore, they are ALWAYS used). I thought that there was a hole in the condom that let out a little sperm.
When i was a kid i red something about chewing gum flavored condoms. After that I thought some of the gum in the grocery store was used for birth control and was scared of buying the wrong kind because I didn't want anyone to think i was having sex.
When I was 5 or 6 I heard my older sister talking to my mom about her room mate and how she always used to steal my sisters condoms. I asked them what a condom was and they said i will find out later.
I thought that condoms were like water ballons and my sister kept thousands of them under her bed.
Until I was about 11 or 12, I would not go down the condiment aisle in the grocery store by myself. I thought that was where the condoms were displayed/sold and I was too embarassed to let anyone see me near a condom.
When I was in grade 6 my friend asked if I knew what a condom was. I said, "of course I know what a condom is! It's a tall building with apartments!"
when i was 5-6 i actually thought they were sat-navs, because it says, be safe, use a condom, and i was like, its on the radio, in a car, its a sat-nav, at eight i realised i had got it mixed up with tomtom..l
When was younger I used to believe condoms were a food, because I once heard someone speak of vanilla and cherry flavored condoms, and I believed that for years
I used to believe condoms looked like bandaids.
I used to believe that us boys grew condoms, and I could never figure out why mine had never grown yet. So I told my friend about it saying "How come my condom hasn't grown yet, but everyone else's had?" and he couldn't stop laughing and I didn't think it was funny at all! But he explained that you have to buy them and put them on for sex. And I didn't believe him so I asked both of my parents about it and they agreed with my friendů afterwards with "the talk". How embarrassing!
I used to believe that condoms in their packaging were pretty coloured match boxes, because some had pictures of fire on them. I would stand at the counter peering at these nice "match boxes" behind the cashier.
When I was a kid, the AIDS epidemic was in full swing. There was a big push in the media to "have safe sex" and "always wear rubbers." For a long time I pictured people rolling around in full rubber haz-mat suits.
