When I was a very small person, and I'd just got to grips with the fact that eye colour was inherited from your parents, I was convinced that it wasn't possible for two people to have children if they didn't have the same eye colour.
I used to believe that the neonate ward
in an hospital was a super-specialized
sort of store for babies . . . you went
to the hospital, the same way you went
to the butcher or bakery, and pointed
out the one you wanted; then, they sent
you home with your new kid. This belief
was reinforced by the fact that my mom
had a no-show pregnancy when I was 5.
We've got a picture of her at ~8 months,
in a bathin suit; and, all you'd say was
that she had a little beer belly.
When I was little I used to believe that to have sex, the man would have to suck the womans boobs and that was it and would not believe anyone that tried to tell me different. Later on in sex ed when they explained the way everyone else had tried to explain to me I couldnt get over it.
i used to think you had to have sex for 12 hours
When I was little I used to think a girl got pregnant by kissing another man.
When i was a child and we are talking very young, i asked the classic where am i from question. my mother,told me that she found me under a cabbage leaf in a vegetable patch. this led me bing a 80s child to belive that i might be the real cabbage patch kid.
I used to think that when people were married for a while, a baby would just appear. I didn't really think about how it got there. I just assumed that you automatically got a baby if you were married.
when i was first introduced to asexual reproduction in grade school science class, i thought that it was possible for me to just become randomly pregnant. apparently my teacher didnt explain very well that it only occurs in simple plants and animals. i was terrified for weeks until i got the nerve to ask my mom about it!
There was this woman in my church who told her granddaughter (I swear this true) that if she had sex she should jump up and down really hard. It would break the egg and she couldn't get pregnant.
Now here is another tidbit. The grandmother had 6 kids of her own. Guess that method didn't work too well!!!
when i was little i imagined a beach being inside a mommy's tummy for the baby. i used to think there was a beach, and the baby was a lot bigger than everyone else at the beach.
When I was 5 years old my sister had a baby and I had asked my parents where babies come from and my daddy told me that you found your baby on a fence post.
when i was little i ask my mum if sperm was green coz i had been given a sex education class at school that day and it explained about the sperm meeting the egg but it didnt explain were sperm came from or i just wasnt listening so i interigated my mum when i got home about the colour of sperm and were it came from. well her answer was that it is coloured like spit that was all she told me and now i know the full works, fortently
When I was a young boy - around 9 - I remember announcing seriously one day at the dinner table that when I grew up I would only be able to have 2 children. My mother asked me why and I replied "Because I only have 2 testicles".
I was not prepared for my parents reaction. They literally fell about laughing to the point where they were literally wiping tears from their eyes. I just sat there saying "What? What?"
Of course, I eventually got the explanation but it wasn't until some time later that I too saw the funny side.
I believed that humans and animals could have babies together and the mentally challenged kids at school were believed to be the dog-human babies
When I asked my mom where I came from, she told me I came from her tummy. I refused to believe that. Instead, I imagined a giant hospital room filled with babies. God put them there, and that's where your parents got you.
when I was around 8 or 9, i used to kiss my baby sister alot and one day i thought I could get pregnant by kissing her, so for the next few months i watched to see if my stomach got bigger (it didnt lol)
i used to think that when a woman was pregnant when she got changed the baby fell on the floor so one time asked a teacher that i had that was pregnant how she kept the baby from fallin when she got changed and she told me how it really worked
I use to beleive as a child that you could look down a pregnant womans shirt and see the baby.
I used to think babies came from beer stores, and they rolled out on the rolly thing. I also used to think you grew up to be an animal, I always wanted to be a dog.
i used to believe that babies came through mail order.
