my sister was in year 10 and they gave out condoms i asked what they were and she said chewing gum one day i opened it and chewed on it and my sister found me and burst out laughing lol now i kno wht they are
When I first learned about condoms, I learned that they prevented the HIV virus from getting from one person to another. I was old enough to have learned that viruses and sperm were both very small things, but I hadn't realized that sex wasn't only to just make babies, so I spent a very long time trying to figure out how the condom stopped the viruses but not the sperm. I finally asked someone and was only more perplexed. Why would you have sex if it didn't result in a baby? And if you wanted to have a baby then you wouldn't be safe from HIV! (I didn't realize there was a test that could tell if you had HIV or not.)
When i was learnin about sex for the first time, and i learned about a condom, i thought that condoms where made of the same material as diapers, and that they were at least 1 inch thick, because i had heard so many ppl talk about them breaking....
When i was a kid, fishing with my dad on lake invermere, i caught a used condom. Not knowing what it was, I went to grab it... My dad immediately caught my hand and firmly told me not to touch it. He got a little flustered when i asked why, as he didnt want to tell me about sex.
so he euphamised it. he started off the story with "Kevin, when a mommy fish and a daddy fish love each other very much they want to express that love, sometimes without making baby fish..." and I blurted out "OH! So those come from fish?"
Not wanting to say any more he said "Yes, Kevin, those come from fish but they are dirty so dont touch them."
when I got a little older and started sex-ed in school a teacher held up a condom and asked if anyone knew what it was. Needless to say i was severely embarassed that day!
okay this is weird. I thought that that since people are constantly talking about the infamous "put the condom on the banana," the banana peel was the condom.
I wouldn't eat bananas for 3 year.
This isn't really a belief.Just a story. When I was 11 I was in the show, "The Sound of Music" playing one of the kids. You know the microphone packs? They're little boxes that have the on off switch and stuff and a cord that runs up to the actual mic that you put on your face. The tech people had this idea to cover the mic packs with condoms. So before every show they put one over everyone's mic pack. One day, the girl who played Gretl, (age five) came up to me and asked what they put on the mic packs. I told her, "Um..special microphone covers." And she believed me. Boy was that close!
it hough condoms protected from STDs,but,told by my sister,i was wrong
I use to believe that condoms was gum...my brother had packs of it in his drawers and i use to take it out the wrapper and chew on it..and they were flavored too..so it tasted good.sometimes they werent in a packet and i ate them anyways...my mom saw me one day and screamed saying that i had "sperm" in my mouth..i had no idea what that was so i said "no mommy i have gum in my mouth"..i found out everything later on...my brother "Reused" condoms...im scarred for life.
I used to beleive condoms were pills, until I saw an outline of one in a book about growing up, EWW!
when i was 10 i knew abt sex condoms and all but not about oral sex
when i first heard of flavoured condoms i thought that u were supposed to chew them like chewing gum until the flavour was lost and then put it onto the penis
later on i realised that u could do the 2 things together
when i was little we stayed in a apartment complex for a few months. one day while over at my friend's (right across the hall) we found one of her dad's condoms, she thought it was a balloon and tried to blow it up. XD
When I was young someome was talking about condoms & I wondered what one was.
They replied it was something you put on your willy to stop you getting AIDS,
I assumed it was a hard plastic tube (ouch!) until I read a book on the facts of life & got the right idea.
One time I was watching Cone heads with my family and we were at the part where he is chewing gum but the gum is actually a condom. Everyone started to laugh at that part and I asked what it was and everyone laughed at me so I thought it was a guys pinis.
I used to believe that rubber gloves were made when some guy stuck his hand into a giant vat of melted rubber/wax. So I was surprised at who would be dumb enough to want to make condoms.
I had a friend who thought that flavoured condoms where so that there would be a nice smell during sex, not for a nice taste during... another activity. She believed this until we were 17 yearts old and i told her what was what, she was totally disgusted and I am not sure if she believed me!!
This wasn't me, but I work at a daycare and one of the teachers there is pregnant. One day one of the little kids said, "Did you eat the baby?" and then another time the same teacher went to the restroom and came back and one of the children said, "Did you just have the baby when you went potty?" Aww...how adorable!
When I was very young and was told that people used rubbers so they could make love and not make a baby I thought on;a very "sick" thing to do and not done by nice people. When I grew upI I I used them just like everybody else.
when my brother and i were kids (around 8 yrs old), there used to be this keychain in our home's odds and ends drawer that interested us so. there was a condom inside the clear plastic with the words, "break in case of emergency." one time, my brother did finally break it and showed it to me. when my mom saw the unwrapped condom, she had my dad deal with the situation. first my dad asked us what we thought a condom was for. my answer: it's a magic barf bag with the same purpose as the ones you see in the pocket in front of your seat in an airplane. my brother's idea: some kind of magical oxygen mask which people with asthma use just like the brown paper bag. notice how we both thought it was magical? i hated knowing what a condom really was for afterwards.
I used to take my dad's condoms thinking they were balloons. I'd blow them up and wonder why they tasted so bad. The most awkward thing was when my 15 year old cousin came by and I took him to blow up condoms.
when i was little i was looking for something under my parents sink and i found about 30 condoms and it was the day before my birthday and i ran into the kitchen where my parents were and told them look i found some balloons for my party!
