At age 6 I used to believe that once a man and woman married, slipping the ring on her finger would trigger the baby to start growing. I remember telling one of my best friends this. Once I married, with a slip of the ring, 3 weeks later, the baby started growing!

i used to believe that if you wanted to have a baby, you could choose any person you wanted to have it with, and all you had to do is go to the market where they'd have jars of sperm from differ people and buy it and drink it. I remember thinking that i was going to buy J.T.T's sperm when i was older (J.T.T is Jonathan Taylor Thomas...yes i know)

when i was a kid i used to think that when women had gotten pregnant they would get fat and then one day when they sat down to go to the bathroom the aby would fall out. i even thought that when somebabys got flushed they turned into turtles. i also couldent grasp the concept that only women got pregnant( i was only 5 gimme a break) so everytime i took a shit i would check just to make sure it wasnt a baby

In about third grade, my best friend "taught" me about the birds and the bees. I learned the typical procedure, up until the end when the man "pees" in the woman. Apparently, she knew something came out of his penis, just not what exactly. I thought this was true for the longest time until it finally dawned on me that pee is a waste product, and why would you purposely expel your waste into someone else?

When I was little, my mom saw me playing with myself (innocently, of course) and said, "Don't do that. That's how babies are made." After that, I stopped, because I didn't want to get pregnant. ;) For awhile I was telling people that it was true: men could give birth, too!

There comes a time in every childs' life where they ask,
"Where do babies come from?"
When I asked this to my mother, she told me that babies come from from their mommy's tummy, where they get all the food and nutrience that they needed to grow. So here's what I saw in my mind's eye:
A woman with a large bulge in her stomach. In that bulge there was a baby (fully clothed) standing up and kicking at the sides of the mother's 'tummy'. Like a robot, the mother eats her dinner. The food falls from her throat and rains onto the baby with no signs of being chewed up. From there the baby eats it.
You must understand that I didn't know how the digestive system worked then either. To me it was PERFECTLY logical to have food raining onto an unborn child.

I believed (thanks to my mum) that babies grew on "baby trees" and simply 'fell off' when they were ripe!!!

When I was in elementary school, an older student told me that if you had a pain in your right side, you were having a baby girl. A pain in your left side ment you were having a baby boy. I had to get my appendix out at the age of 17 - thankfully, I had learned where babies came from by then.

I studied French at university and in my second year (I was 19) I wrote an essay on nineteenth-century short stories. One story featured a strange bear-man who had been conceived when his mother had sex with a bear. I told my tutor that this fitted the description of a "conte fantastique" perfectly, because although events seemed supernatural, there was also a logical explanation and what happened in the story, although unlikely, could happen in real life. He looked at me in amazement and then said, very slowly, "look, I know we're not studying biology here..."

When I was about 8 and learned about the birdsand the bees,I assumed that the babies were born just a few weeks after sex. I also believed that the expectant mommy had to be careful to make sure, when she went to the bathroom, that she was just pooping, and wasn't giving birth. I also wondered how many babies had been flushed down the toilet by unobservant mothers.

This isn't actually my belief, it is (or was) the belief of a classmate of mine. She thought that babies were delivered by a stork. Sort of reasonable, right? Wrong. She wasn't 3 or 4. She was 15. And in Honors Biology.

i used to think that all girls and women were born with little fetus-like things growing inside them, and once you reached a certain age it would automatically start growing into a baby.

I used to believe that to make babies, a man would pee into a woman's butt. There. I said it.

I thought that people have babies as soon as they kiss.

Lots of other kids told me this when I was about 8.

(you know how much kids fear sex)
