ok.. so when my brother and I were younger, we'd play "pirates" - we had a couple of those cool flintlock pistols that we got at Mouseschwitz (Disneyland).. however, we were missing one important piece to the costume - telescopes!! All pirates needed telescopes. Well, "luckily" for us, mom was being visited by Aunt Flo, and had some spare "telescopes" in the trash!! (tampax applicators) - thinking nothing (and knowing no better) I had my brother take them out of the trash (so I wouldn't be in trouble for digging in the trash) and away we went...
Our mom saw us using them (this was well after a few months worth of use), and stopped us... I'd forgotten about the incident until sex education. Then the (embarassing) memories came back. Needless to say, I didn't ask the instructor what girls did with their "telescopes" during their time of month.

When I was nine, I found this book in my sisters bedroom called "Your Body." I saw a picture of a girl using a tampon (cartoon ofcoarse). I told my sister that she has to give her self shots in the vagina. She started crying.

my friend thought that tampons were sticks of dynamite... he'd stick them between books on the bookshelf with the string dangling out. and then try and light the end.

when i was little i was discovering the bathroom when i came accross a box which said "tampax" i wondered what they were, so i ran down stairs and asked my mum, cos mums know everything and never lie, she said its for when people have nose bleeds, well next time i had a nose bleed i ran upstairs a shoved the whole thing (applicator and all) straight up my nose then went and told my whole family who were downstairs eating dinner!

I used to believe that menstruation fluid was blue because of the way TV commercials showed it.

In elementary school I thought girls only got their period once, but they bled for a whole month. Until I figured out the truth I couldn't wait to get it, but it was mostly just so I could have it over with.

I used to believe that when women got thier period they bled from their nipples and that's why women would wear bras, I also thought sex involved putting a long tube down your throat and having a doctor put chicken eggs into your stomach, they would magically turn to babies

I used to believe that pads were for if you peed your pants. Well the commercials always showed girls being ambarrassed over stuff!

My friend got her period in fourth grade, before any of us ever got The Talk about it. She saw blood in her panties, took it out after school and washed it herself, crying all the while because she thought she was dying.

I was so excited to get my period, because it meant I was going to be a grown up soon. Of course, I also thought people only got their periods ONCE in their lives and then that was it.

Now I understand why there are so many commercials selling pads.

I used to chat to my little brother about what to expect when he got his first period. I actually had him worried for awhile that he hadn't begun menstruating yet we he was about 10. My mom wasn't pleased. Best prank I ever pulled on him, though.

When I first learned what a period was, I understood the whole 'blood' part, but I was convinced it was only going to be a speck or two. I was scared to death thinking I might start my period and never even know it. At age eleven, this was proven wrong. Sadly. God, how I WISH it would go by unnoticed!

I used to think that women ate their tampons and then pee it out when their period was over.
