In sex ed, we were talking about condoms, and a student (not me) rasied his hand and said "I know what those are, my parents live in one"

When I was about 8 me and my friend watched the movie Coneheads, in one of the scenes one of the coneheads pulls out a package of condoms and starts chewing on one. my friend then asked me what that was that he was chewing on, me knowing quite abit for my age told him it was a condom. he then asked me what a condom was, i wouldnt tell him because i found it awkward, we then had a moment of silence and suddenly he burst out and said
"i know what a condom is" i said
"what is it then?"
He said,
"its for old men to put on their penis' so they dont pee themselves"
me, just wanting to end the conversation said,
"yeah thats right"
He then ran to his parents and yelled out,
"I know what a condom is!"
...his parents loved me from that moment on

when i was about 7 or 8, my friends and i would always go swimming at our health club's swimming pool. one day, we found a condom floating in the water. i picked it up, and my friend said it was probably a lotion sample from the locker room. we opened it, and we thought it was a bathing cap for your boob, (it was probably an XXL) we always thought that was incredibly funny until a few years later, after we knew what condoms were, we were looking back, and suddenly we all realised that what we were playing w/ was a condom. we were horrified and embarresed for weeks.

My parents never gave me 'The Talk' when I was younger, yet thanks to television and friends, I knew pretty much everything about sex.

Nobody ever told me about condoms though.

Until I was about 13, I thought Condoms were just another brand of antacid tablets, like Alka-Seltzer, because they were both the same shape and size when they were wrapped.

I had really bad indigestion one day, and asked my mother for a condom to get rid of my stomache pains.

...She still hasn't let me forget about that...

I once found a condom wrapper in my parents room called "Magic in the moonlight" and I thought it was a magic trick. I begged my mom to show me how to do the magic trick, but she wouldn't. It wasn't until about 10 years later I was looking back on it and realized it was a condom.

A few times when I was little I saw commercials for Trojan condoms. When the packaging for the condoms were shown, I assumed it was a book of matches. Since hotel lobbies often had matches with their logos, I reasoned that Trojan was a hotel. The happy people in the commerical were loyal customers.

When I was a pre-teen I believed that if a man thought he would be having sex, he would put the condom on hours before.

Like before he left for his date, he would slip it on. Then later, it would already be there.

In fifth grade we had just gotten back from a very vague sex ed class and a boy in my class said something about a condom. The sex ed class hadn't mentioned condoms, so another student asked our teacher what a condom was. She told us it was a device used for sex. I then thought two people couldn't have sex without a condom. I thought it was some sort of metal device that the man and the woman attached themselves to.

When I was very little I heard the word condom used. My mom had explained to me that if married people didn't want to have children they had to use a condom. The closest word I had ever heard to it was the word condiment so I figured condom was just an abreviation. Well one day there was a bit of a family gathering at my house, including my cousin who had just recently gotten married. Well she was discussing with my mom and some of my other relatives that she didn't want to have children. So trying to help my cousin I ran into the kitchen and grabbed the mustard, I ran back put the mustard in her hands and said "You have to use a condom like this if you don't want kids". EVERYONE laughed forever!!! and now I'm married and just had my first child. I had my cousin over a few weeks back (which is what reminded me of the story), She had brought me gift, I told her how thoughtful it was, and after I unwrapped it.....yeah Mustard. She then said "now you said you didn't want another for a while so use this wisely".

When i was around 10 years old, condoms were distributed in our street as a part of social awareness program, but we the kids in the street didnt know wat they were really used for , thought they were distrubeted to make big sized balloons for a special event in the street.
So we started making very big balloons, so that we had a competition of making the biggest balloons in the street.
While everyone was wondered why the balloons very so sticky and had different shape at the tip when blown and were looking different from normal balloons.
After several years now i knew what we actually made a competition on ;)

When I was in 6th grade my health teacher kept talking about 'rubbers'. I was like... what the hell is that? I knew what a condom was at the time... and for some reason I thought when she said rubbers she was talking about those yellow rubber rain boots... it made no sense to me how wearing boots would help during sex.

I used to hear my older sister talking about sex stuff, and it didn't faze me until I was eavesdropping on her sleepover. I was eight, she was fourteen. They were talking about this girl who was supposedly not a virgin. My sister replied, "Ewww, did they even use a rubber?"
Well, I had heard of condoms, but not rubbers. I got this weird mental image of a couple wearing those yellow rubber gloves while having sex. I concluded that this was because men's sperm weren't sanitary and a girl needed to wear gloves.

once when we had a family dinner at a bistro, me, being only 9 & my neice who was 7 went to the toilets and there was a condom machine. and neither of us knew what these condom things were, but we saw they were flavoured! so we each put it 50p and got a condom each. Being very ignorant indeed, i filled mine with soap (which i thought was strawberry flavored) and we tried to eat them. but ofcours they were disgusting so we just left them by the sink. lol
