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!!!

I knew someone who thought condoms were so that the MEN wouldn't get pregnant!

When I was 11 or 12 I used to travel with my father who was a salesman. When we stopped at gas stations, I would go to the bathroom. At truck stops there would usually be a condom machine in the men's bathroom. I was always curious about comdoms and wanted to put in a quarter to get one and see what it was like. However, I believed that a loud alarm would go off if anyone under-age bought one.

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!!

When I was in grade six, I knew a little bit about puberty and sex and all that other stuff (my mom had told me "where babies came from" when I was only four years old, and she'd bought me a book about puberty when I was ten), but I still wasn't exactly sure what condoms were, or what they were for. So one day, at school, I asked my friend Lisa what a condom was, and she said "The man puts it over his dinky before sex so the woman doesn't get pregnant." Then she proceeded to scuplt one out of plasticene for my edification, by making a plasticene "log" and sticking her finger in it to make it hollow. So, for a while, I believed that condoms were either hard plastic devices that the man stuck his thing into, or sort of like a rubber "sock" for the man's thing. I was shocked when I first saw one in a package, lol.

When I was younger my grandmother worked at a family planning clinic. I used to go into work with her every so often when she would watch me. There was a large bowl of condoms at the entrance and I assumed that all the brightly colored packages must be candy. It took me many many years before I realized I shouldn't be mad at my grandma for not letting me have her works candy

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!

For some reason, I always used to think condoms and condiments were the same thing. So whenever someone asked if I'd like any condiments on my hot dog I would just laugh and say no.

I know someone who said that when he was younger, he thought that condoms were for getting the baby you wanted, in the sense that you flicked a switch to "boy" if you wanted a boy. And you flicked a switch to "girl" if you wanted a girl. And if you wanted twins you would flick a switch to "Twins"

When I was about 9, I was over at a friends house. In her parents bathroom, we found a used condom in the trash can. We asked her mom what it was and she said it was part of the dads tutu. I had this mental image of my friends dad dressed in a pink frilly skirt dancing around the place. I thought condoms were only for cross-dressing dancers until I was in High School.

I used to believe you could make a good condom by cutting a finger off a rubber glove. What would one expect from a 9 year old?

I've been interested in science from a very young age. When I was about 10, I had read about animals finding mates via pheromones. I assumed that pheromones played an important part in human mating, too. I thought that men and women enjoyed sex because of pheromones passing between their sex organs!

Then I learned that a condom prevents fluid exchange, but I didn't know what a condom looked like. So I assumed that it was an elaborate contraption to convey pheromones between partners during sex! I imagined a plastic device with tubes connecting the two people. I remember asking an older friend about condoms, admitting that "I don't know how all the tubes work." He got a funny expression and changed the subject. Later on, when I finally learned the truth, I was so embarassed of my wild imaginings!

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...

I once walked into my parents' bedroom (no, this isn't going where you think it is!) and saw that my mother had left a box on the bed, marked "Oral Contraceptives."

For a while, I became convinced that a woman could get pregnant by giving a man a blowjob, and she had to take oral contraceptives to prevent pregnancy.

when i was younger i was being babysat by my uncle and his girlfriend, i went into my parents room and found a used condom in their night table, so i picked it up and went to ask what it was, well they tried beating around the bush until my parents got home, later that night my mom had to make up something because my curious mind was not about to drop the subject, she told me it was for daddy when he went on overnight fishing trips and they wore them to pee in .. i was upset later to find out what it really was in life

For some reason, I used to think that a 'condom' was a kind of hairstyle. No idea why.

When I was in primary, I heard the big kids talking about condoms. For a while I thought that they were some sort of life-jacket. I still don't understand how i made that connection...
