I knew that babies were made with girl and boy private parts... but I thought that if my brother peed and didn't flush then I peed that a baby could grow in the toilet if you didn't flush fast enough

When I was younger, I used to think the penis was actually called a "buddy" and the vagina was actually called a "schnizzy". Thanks, mom. :)

The first time I asked how I was born my mom told me that she and my dad made me "with God." Well I assumed they put me together, assembly-line style, in a factory in Heaven.
I should mention I was also a huge fan of Pinocchio.

When I was younger, my parents used the word "bunky" to describe mine and my sisters "bottoms". At 5th grade, during the first sex ed class I had ever been to, the teacher called out and said, "Can anyone here tell me what the name of the female reproductive organs are?" Well, of course, I raised my hand and proceeded to tell the class that we all had bunkies.

I used to believe that when a guy kissed a girl and they traded spit, the girl would get pregnant.

I used to believe that a mom and her baby were connected at the belly button when the baby was inside her and she fed it by inserting food into her belly button.

I used to believe that boys had boys and girls had girls. IDK why, but that sounded sensible, didn't you?

For some reason when I was a very young child, I was under the impression that sperm were located in the feet.

I don't recall how I thought sex occurred at the time. Luckily.

When I was 6, I asked my mom where babies came from, she gave me a very honest answer. Before she told me the truth, I thought this: If a girl ate a watermelon seed and she was in love, the watermelon seed would grow into a baby.

In fifth grade, when we had the sex education video, it talked about when boys are old enough to get erections. I thought for the longest time after, that once a boy is old enough to get an erection, it would last him his whole life. So a guy was always hard, and never soft.

My dad told me when I was really little that roosters simply "walked over" an egg in order to fertilize it. I was recently in a conversation with my boss at work and argued that this was true for at least ten minutes - before realizing that my dad had simply told me that in order to avoid giving me the sex talk! My boss still laughs at me over that one.

When I was 5 my sister and I were sent to the neighbor's house for lunch. A while later, I saw the family doctor walking down our front walk, carrying his black bag, of course. (This was in the mid 1940s.) A short time after that, we were called back to our house, and presented with our brand new baby brother. So I knew FOR SURE that babies were brought in the doctor's black bag. I'd seen it with my own eyes.

I used to think that the number of babies a woman would have was programmed into her -- there was no external factor like sex that would 'make' a baby, it would just happen randomly. ...at least until it occurred to me that dads were important somehow; then I thought it was kissing that made babies.

when i was young, i thought that a sperm just jumped out of a guy and jumped inside a woman and attached itself onto the egg and there came the baby

When I was about 10 or 11, I was so obsessed with having a pet other than a fish that one day I went into the fridge and took an egg. I microwaved it for about 10 seconds in the microwave, and then I wrapped it in a few socks and put it in a drawer (Clearly I thought the "warmth" from the hen is what made an egg hatch). I would fantasize all day about the egg hatching into a baby chick!

After a few days, I finally told my mom and she said "the egg can't hatch because it's not fertilized."

Then for some reason, I got this crazy idea in my head that if I put sperm on the egg, it would hatch into a human/chicken. The image of that human/chicken hatching still freaks me out...

When I was little I thought when a man and woman had sex, the woman's boobs would fuse with the man's chest and the penis would fuse to the vagina. Then a baby would come out by unzipping the vagina.
