my mum, my little sister (who was 8 at the time) and I (who was 13) were in a public girls washroom at the mall, when my sister saw a vendor for flavoured condoms. there was a picture on it of an ice cream cone. she pointed at it and said to me, "can i have a quarter to buy an ice cream?" i laughed about that incident the whole day, you should have seen the colour of red my mums face turned. haha

hahahahhaha

I used to think that Gas Stations would make you pay for paper towels to dry your hands and the Condom machines where their dispensers. I told my Dad in disbelief. I thought; "How could the Gas Station owners be so cheap." After he finally figured out what I was talking about, he laughed and that spawned "The Talk". Now I know, Paper Towels are expensive and Gas Station owners don't make a lot of money. :)

Paper Towels 50 cents each.

When I was younger I saw the movie Naked Gun and there is a part when the couple in the movie wear full body condoms and roll around in bad (obviously it was a joke part of the movie)... I forever thought that that is how condoms work... boy was I wrong!!!

when i was small i found a box of condoms in my parents room and because there was loads in it (must have been a 12pack or more, makes me sick to think of it!) i took one thinking they wouldnt notice and opened it to see what it was. i thought it was a balloon and my dad walked in and caught me trying to blow it up. then when i asked him what it was, he told me that men carried them incase they needed to go to the toilet and couldnt get to a bathroom! i think my initial balloon idea was better, he should have left it at that!

When I was around eight my discovered I had som pornomags I had found in a container. She told me that the people in the magazines were doing bad things, and that it was dirty. Then naturally she threw them away. At this point I had learned what a condom was, and was horrified when I discovered that my dad had pack in his nightstand drawer. I couldn't figure out why they would do something that bad, and I thought somehow they must be slowly be going insane. It was the only explanation I could come up with. I was terrified because of this, because I wouldn't know what to do if they actually went nuts after a while. Finally I mustered up the courage to confront them about it, and my dad explained to me how grown ups have something called sexual urges, and that if they didn't have sex now and then they would go insane. I hadn't mentioned the insanity part of my assumption when asking about, so I was even more puzzled by this. Actually I think he meant to say that it would become frustrating after a while, but of course I didn't understand until much later. After that I thought adults would end up in the nut house if they didn't have intercourse on a regular basis, and I still couldn't fogure out why I was told it was bad when it was magazines, but not elsewhere.

When I was in the 4th grade, I used to think a rubber ( condom ) was something a guy puts on as part of his football equipment. Helmet, mouthguard, kneepads, rubber, etc etc...Hahaha!
Didn't find out the truth until a year later, and was REALLY embarassed!!

My older sister and I shared a room when we were young... one night she explained to me that there were actually people in Hollywood (apparently ONLY in Hollywood) that has sex for fun and not just when they wanted a baby! imagine... she went on to explain they managed this by wrapping the man's penis in Saran wrap and a rubber band. for a long time i thought only people in Hollywood had sex without a baby and when I was much older and learned of condoms I naturally thought that whole Hollywood-Saran wrap thing must have really caught on!

When I was younger (probably 7 or 8) we didn't know what condoms were. So when my friends and I found a couple used ones in the alley behind their house, we took them.
I vividly recall my friend blowing one of them up like a balloon. We also stretched another one over a pop bottle.
I was disgusted when I learned what a condom was a few years later.

I used to think condoms were just the rim and then elastic latex. I didn't know it had the shape of a penis so I always wondered how men kept condoms on their penises. I thought there was some latch that you hook onto yourself to keep it up.

For a while when I was younger, i used to thing that you ate a condom, becauses I was watching room raiders and it said some thing about flavored condoms. when i found out what a flavoured condom was used for, i was SO grossed out.

I had only seen condom packets and I knew that they were supposed to prevent pregnacy so I assumed they were to stick over the girl so the penis couldn't go in. Then I thought "so how is sex different from kissing naked?"

Should know by now

when i was in second grade i heard for the first time, someone mention condoms and for many years thought it was two velcro circles and they would both wear one on their private parts and would stick themselves together and go to sleep cuddling.

i have no idea where i got that!

I remember in 3rd grade a boy brought a condom to school and was caught by the teacher. I asked my friend later, "what is a condom?" He told me and a group of people it was a small building. :|

When i was younger I believed a condom was some type of powder like the Ramen Noodle ones and that you would just sprinkle it over yourself to keep you from getting pregnant.

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
