Back when I was about 5 or 6, I had asked my Dad, of all people, the question: where do babies come from. He had gone quiet and because I couldn't take a hint at that age started to guess. My Dad stopped me when I asked if babies came out of the a mother's mouth or belly button.
When I was very young, I believed that babies were born through the mother's navel. A woman in our neighborhood had a baby and her son told us all about how it happened. So I shared the navel/birth canal belief with my entire preschool peer group.
When people talk about sex, they call it "The Birds and the Bees". As a little kid, I was very confused. How could two animals of different species have babies?
When I was about 5 I assumed that baby boys come from men, and baby girls come from woman. Hence, I thought I came from my dad. My parents laughed ever so hard when I told them. It just didn't make sense that I could come from my mom if I was boy. Bleh.
My nephew once told his grandmother that he was very worried, because when he grew up to be an adult he wanted children but he had heard how children were made and wondered if that was true? and if it was, it was the most discusting he had ever heard.His grandmother told him it was true what he had heard. He then said "Well then Im first gonna go to he hospital to get my dick paralyzed!"
I was the smart kid. I knew exactly how reproduction happenned. I could name all the parts, discuss PMS, the whole nine. What I didn't know is that there might be another reason for men and women to have sex aside of reproduction. Boys were gross until they grew up and somehow magically transformed into potential dads. Right???
You know how women will go into a room and close the door so the kids can't hear what's being said? Well I thought that when my mom was in the room with her friends, that they were "playing". I even protected my father from what I thought was this terrible secret. Of course mom and her friends were just talking, but I didn't know that.
I was 13 before someone finally explained things to me. I still didn't fully believe it until I was 18 and had my first serious male partner.
when i was younger a friend of mine told me that for a woman to get pregnant one of your testicles had to be cut out... i didnt believe completely since my father had another 10 brothers & sisters :)
I'd once asked my dad what sperm was and he'd said 'It's the milk that men make'. So when my mom was breastfeeding my little sister, I asked her why she didn't use sperm instead. I said it was injust that women had to give their milk and men didn't.
Once I saw on TV a premature baby all hooked up on tubes. This led me to believe that babies were manufactured in hospitals and to get one you simple had to place an order.
When my mom was pregnant with my sister,(I think) my mom took me to this class of some sort at the hospitalto explain to young siblings where the baby would develop. I don't remember much except the dolls, which were cloth and had velcro pouches that held smaller dolls like pregnant women.
Whether I wasn't paying attention, or they just didn't tell much, I don't know, but because of that I thought for a pretty long time that women became pregnant pretty much at random, which is why women all have different numbers, and some don't have any, even if they want them. The fathers were just the women's husbands, which also explained single moms.
For a short while, when I was about 6 or 7, my friends and I thought that all girls were born pregnant. Then,when we got married, the baby would be born. We would push our bikes around instead of riding in case we might hurt the fetus.
I used to think that in order for women to breastfeed, they would have to go to the doctor who would poke a tiny hole in their nipples to let the milk come out... I was so stressed about having to go thru that when I got older!!!
When I was 3 my mom was pregnant with my brother. One night we were having dinner when she said: "Uh oh, I guess someone is arriving", meaning my brother, but I thought someone was actually coming at our place, so I stood up and went to open the door.
i used to believe, due to the expertise of another 2 nd grader, that by placing a penis on a nipple got u pregnant. isnt this hilarious. this was from 1956,57 etc. so wally beaver
I used to believe that a baby's sex was determined by whether the sperm had a picture of a man or woman on it.
When I was a child I used to think that black women produced chocolate milk
I used to believe you knew the sex of a baby (when born) by looking to see if they had hair or not. Girls if born with hair, boys if their born without hair.
I remember the first time I discovered the back massager. I also remember looking at my stomach and thinking it had gotten a little bigger and that I was pregnant! Soon after of course I got it straighten out when I asked my mom where babies came from.
when i was young, i was told that if a woman wanted to become pregnant she could get a needle to be. when the sex.ed lady at school told us the truth, it was a bit of a shock.
When my mother was expecting for the second time, when I was 5 years old, she told me that I was going to have a little sister (which she couldn't have known). Because I didn't know how babies came into the world, I looked towards the door, expecting another little girl to walk in.
