When I was about 7, I had found some condoms in my parents bedroom, and I brought it up to my dad asking him what it was. He had me convinced that they were "water balloons" so I filled them up with water and threw them at passing cars, not knowing what I had done until years later.

When I was younger (about ten), my parents (they were bikers at the time) used to take me to this bar on the weekends with them, there was a video game area I could play in with the other kids. In the bathroom they had a condom dispenser with one product called a "french tickler". I thought this was the funniest thing, but had no idea what it was. When Christmas rolled around, I was in our living room with my parents and older brother. We were listening to holiday music, and I was singing along to the Twelve Days of Christmas. Instead of saying "Three french hens.", I thought it would be funny to blurt out "Three french ticklers!" My brother started laughing, and I was grounded without any explanation of what a french tickler was.

When I asked my best friend Chrissy what a condom was, she told me it was a little round rubber ball that a woman layed on durring sex. I imagined the ball released some chemicals that made the woman not get pregnet. To this day I am still facinated by condoms and now collect them.

From the time I first heard about condoms to today after I found out the truth, I used to think that condoms where like glycerin supposatories (Those little lubricated things people stick up their butt when they are constipated, haha) that men stuck up their "thing". Today I learned that they are actually a plastic thing men slide over the thing.

I had heard my older siblings use the word "condom." Not knowing what it meant, I asked them. My older sister told me to go and ask my mum (a former convent girl). She said it was something: "not catholic."

I used to think that the man had to wear a condom in bed because if his penis touched the vagina of a woman who was pregnant, he would "catch" it, and become pregnant too!!!

When my two daughters were pre-teens I heard them snickering in the back seat of the car. I asked them what aws so funny and they replied that I wouldn't understand, it was something new. I convinced them to tell me so I would not feel stupid not knowing what this new thing was. Well between snickers they told me what it was--------- Condoms!

When I was five, my three year old brother and I had found our father's box of special ballons, in his dresser. One day, Mom seemed particularily worried and frazzled, and announced that the banker was coming to meet with our family about backing us with a loan to get us through a rough season. It was essential that the house be clean and us children scrubbed, and on our best behavior. Given there were six of us, Mom lost track and my brother and I were on our own, as usual. We decided to help and decorated the kitchen and living room with Dad's Special Ballons while he and Mom showed the Banker around the farm before lunch. The adults didn't notice our hard work, until after they had come in, sat down and in the middle of grace my mother let out a scream that could be heard, I am sure, miles away.

I believed that a condom had to be used wile kissing eachother the french way. so you put the condom in your mouth and you kiss on the mouth and the condom prevents that aids will be exchanged by the mouthfluids.

I think I believed this because I saw a show on tv where they talked about the condom while they showed a kissing couple

I used to believe that condoms were devices that elderly men donned, before enjoying a few pints at the pub, to soak up any urine leakage.

That was because my dad told me so.

I can still remember my Dad shouting at my brother to hide his porno mags properly in his bedroom and get rid of those dirty "french letters" (condoms). I spent ages trying to figure out who was writing to my brother from France !

I was once so naive that I thought that condoms were the male equivilent of tampons as although my Mum told me about periods, she never said men didn't get them either! So when the girl I used to sit by in English at age 11 said she would do it with Ayrton Senna as long as he wore a johnny I was absolutely appalled at the thought.

I used to beleive a condom was to prevent you from peeing inside the woman, which would cause her to inflate.

when i was about 5 or 6 my friend jason (who was probably about 10 or 11) i told me that condoms "stopped women having babies" when i asked him about one that was lying in the gutter.

for a good few years this explanation was interpreted by me as meaning that pregnant women used condoms to stop themselves giving birth by inserting one into their vagina and the condom somehow "catching" the baby. i thought it made sense, ie. if they were out shopping and having a baby was inconvenient, pop one in, problem solved.

I used to believe that sex was only for reproduction, and that condoms were a way to prevent AIDS without preventing conception. A filter would let the sperm through, but not the virus.

I found a box of condoms in a bag my parents had brought home from the drug store. I confronted Mom about it, demanding to know which one of them had AIDS and why they wanted a new baby anyway.

She told me the condoms were a joke gift for their friends and didn't correct any of my confusion.
