For years, I thought that the "balls" on a penis were on the tip. I believed this well into my teenage years.

I used to think the scrotum was the pee hole on a boy and I thought it looked like a big vagina. But then when I saw the anatomy I looked at it in disbelief.

For the longest time the only penises I had ever seen were my brothers' when their diapers got changed or they took baths. And I didn't have any confusion about it because my brothers had always been in my life, with one being my twin. I figured they all looked just like that if they were boy's parts. Years later, finding out about circumcision, I was totally disgusted. I yelled at my mom saying "How could you cut it off! That's not fair! You wouldn't cut anything off of me!" I cried for like an hour over the whole thing. To me it was just as wrong as cutting someone's finger off. To this day I still think it's sort of cruel.

After playing doctor with a neighbor girl I observed the anatomical differences between the genders. I remember thinking that a girl's vagina was like a secret pocket and that it would be a great place to hide cookies. Lol, decades later I mentioned this to my wife and she said I was gross.

My grandmother thought nuns were a separate gender. After all, nobody else wore nuns' habits.

Back when I was going through puberty, my grandmother gave me a "what's happening with my body?" book which had information both on male and female bodies. Being a curious young girl who was also getting to be "that age," I naturally read all the stuff about boys' bits. One part was a section on circumcision, which had a crude illustration of two boys showering in a locker room, one with a penis drawn smoothly and one with a penis drawn with a little tip. The accompanying text described the foreskin as a "hood", but didn't really specify which boy in the picture was which. Since the book talked about uncircumsized boys first, and since the boy with the tipped penis was on the left and thus first, AND since the tip looked a bit like the hood of a jacket, I assumed that he was supposed to be the uncircumsized one. I pictured the foreskin as a big fleshy lump on the tip of a penis! It wasn't until much, much later that I realized I'd had it completely backwards!

During sex ed in high school, one of my classmates asked our teacher why condoms have flavors and if you were supposed to eat them. My teacher didn't know what to say at first but eventually said that you were supposed to use it like a lollipop. I don't think my classmate got it, though.

I'm female, and once upon a time I thought a penis was the size of a finger, flimsy and skinny.

I became terrified of them when I realized they were much bigger than that...

my 4 year old brother once saw my 5 year old sister peeing and, since he didn't know that girls did not have a penis, asked his mom "why is she peeing from her butt?"

I used to think you could lose your boobs if you ate too much beef, so I became a vegetarian.

I used to think that after the parents had the maximum amount of kids, the father's p*nis would eventually fall off and the mother's v*gina would close up, and they wouldn't be able to make any more kids.

I used to think that girls had "balls" and not boys, and the "balls" were slang for breasts

I originally thought "balls" was slang for buttocks instead of testicles.

When I was little, my parents referred to round, spherical poops as "balls" - so of course, whenever boys referred to their "balls", I thought they were talking about their bowel movements. At school, a girl dared a boy to shout "MY BALLS ARE BIG!!!" I remember thinking, "hmm, that's not such an embarassing dare."

When I was a kid my parents referred to the penis as a "peepee-er" and up until I had sex education at school I thought that was the proper name for it

One day when I was about 6 or 7, my brother came home from school. My mom asked him what he learned about that day, and he said he learned about the penis in his health class. I asked what a penis was and heard my mom say "a whale's pee pee" instead of a male's. I was surprised when I eventually got to sex ed and learned what it really was.
