when i was about 5 or 6, i remember the commercials in between sesame street about now pregnant women shouldnt drink. i was really confused because everyone needed to drink, so i asked my mom why pregnant women cant drink, and she said because its not good for the baby. so then i proceeded to ask, "not even water?" so now i know better that they were talkin about alcoholic drinks!

top belief!

I wsa in the library one day when I was 9 and really bored. So, I found this kiddie book that said "Where Babies Come From". Since I had been pestering my mom to tell me, I figured I'd just read it and know. It was a story about this boy arguing with this girl to how mommies and daddies made babies. Well, further on, the boy's parents explain it to him, and I was completely digusted! I was scared that I would get in trouble for reading it, so I found a bean bag chair, unzipped it and stuffed the book in the middle of it. I dont' think the library ever found that book, and I never looked @ my parents the same.

I was in grade 10, when, in front of the whole class, while we had just "finished" the chapters on Mitosis / Meisis and Zygotes ... I asked my biology teacher, "I understood it mam, but where does this zygote really form? In the female body I presume, then how does she get MALE hormones inside?"


Surprisingly, all my friends (it was a girls school) knew about how it works, I got a stunned silence and stupid giggling after my question - sufficient to let me know I've asked a stupid questions. I got a fresh perspective in the recess that followed.

Needless to say, the teacher always believed I asked the question on pupose to embarass her and treated me accordingly.

I have NEVER asked someone "where do babies come from?" But I saw the news that this % of people are having sex. What does this sex mean? Nobody told me =(... I really thought that "sex" (that I herd in the TV) is the gender of someone...But, when I got older I realized that sex and where babies come from is connected.... And I was really shocked as in shocked! that the girl and the boy.........needed to do "that" to have a baby...............O_o

i used to believe that sex was how you make babies. but the weird thing is i thought you had to roll around in a field naked with another person and your bodies would morph into a small baby, which would be named by mixing the two people snames together, and that your parents were just virgins who were taking care of you until they had sex. and when people died it was just that they had sex and turned into a baby.

I used to believe that getting pregnant was like inflating a beachball. The Husband inserts his member into the Wife, and while pumps, pumps, and pumps some more, her belly slowly rises. This continues for as long as necessary. They might pause for a break, with them rubbing the belly going, "You reckon that's big enough?". The Wife then carries around a full-size belly for 9 months, to give the baby enough room and time to develop.

I was adopted, and always knew that meant I was "chosen" by my parents. Whenever we went to the grocery store, I would put a banana sticker on my forhead and ask "is this how much I cost" It eventually came to me having several stickers on my head at each visit.

I used to think that babies came from a baby store and that when my mother had to go the hospital when she had my little brother I thought that she and my dad were going to the baby store to pick one out. I believed this until about age 4.

When I was in third grade, for some reason most of my classmates still only knew the story of the stork or a very clean "birds and the bee's" so one day during class we were talking about birthdays and one of the girls in my class said "My birthday is on (some day) and thats the day the stork brought me home." And so being the enlightened child i was I raised my hand and was called on and said "No that's a lie, your parents had sex and thats how you were made" My parents got many a phone call from parents upset that their 3rd graders were coming home asking about sex.

I grew up on a farm, with cows. So at about the age of five I saw some of our cows being "hugged" by the bull in the herd. When i asked my parents why the bull was hugging the cows my parents straight out told me that the cows were having sex and that was how babies were made. Needless to say i soon came to realize how i had been made.

I used to beleive that babies were made out of food that someone ate. For example if i ate sausages then it would form fingers, and meat was legs etc..

when i was young i wondered where kids and young animals came from so i asked Grandma and she sugared the pill by saying that they were created by a stork who used to deliver them to the mum and dad who they belonged to. so i belived that but then i brought a book called the facts of life when i was seven so then i knew the truth.

I was explained the initial process of intercourse...simple enough: the man's penis enters the woman's vagina, fluid with sperm comes out, sperm finds egg and gets fertilized. However, the only thing was I wasn't explained was the process of how the ejaculate fluid comes out of the penis. I spent some time thinking that once a man's penis was inside the woman they just sit there and wait until it comes out...and I was confused as to how they know when the man has ejaculated lol.

I also thought I could get pregnant just by sitting in the same chair where a guy just sat because I thought he left little sperm on the chair and they would crawl up in me.

When i was little I used to believe that if your mummy and daddy got naked in the bathtub together, they wouldn't have human babies, but instead they'd have baby ducks.

I always thought that if I weed in the bath I would make all the sponges pregnant and baby sponges would pop out at midnight because we always got new sponges if I weed in the bath.

When I was younger, I used to think that when little girls were born, a TEENY TINY baby was already in their tummy and would grow up and come out when she was married or in her 20's.
