A long time ago, when someone would say something about someone "loosing their marbles", I thought that they were refering to their testicles, because I used to call them marbels after my mom said that calling them balls was rude.

I used to think that the scar on my penis from circumcision was a ring of dirt. So, in the shower or bath, I would vigorously try to clean it off, to no avail!

I used to believe that vaginas were actually called puttycats becuase that was what my mom would call them.Later when I found out the real name,she told me she would call it a puttycat becuase when she was little she had underwear with Sylvester from The Looney Tunes on it,and when people would come over her house she used to point to her underwear area and say ,"Look at my puttycat".

As a young child, the basic mechanism of reproduction was explained to me, but not in detail, and I thought that testicles were what were "ejected" (whole) into the female's body, which sounded painful, and then you grew another one in its place.

I used to believe having sex would make your genitals explode/fall off.

I used to think that the woman's private area was called a "va-CHINA" and I imagined people in China lived in little teepees that looked like upside-down giant va-CHINAs. What else could explain that word?

In explaining to me (a 5 year old boy) why women can have babies, my mother explained that boys have a pee hole and a poo hole. Girls have a pee hole, a poo hole, and also a baby hole. For years, I imagined that the baby hole looked just like the poo hole and was right next to it.

When I was about four, my cousin and I got caught playing "Doctor" so my mother told me that girls had teeth "down there" and if you stuck your finger or penis "down there" it would get bitten off. Well that was my mother's form of contraception. It wasn't until I was 14 when a girl seduced me and I was afraid because I didn't want to get my penis bitten off, so she showed me that girls did not have teeth "down there". My first reaction was; no wonder look at the shape her gums are in.

I used to believe that girls had only one hole for both peepee and, you know, the vagina.

I used to think that each testicle had its own sack. For real. I even asked the first guy I had sex with if his was normal. Hes my husband now, and he loves to tell that story.

I used to think the head of my penis was my circumcision scar. I thought it looked that way because they took something like a meat cleaver and chopped off the tip, and all the flesh inside popped out like that and formed a mushroom like scar. I was glad since it was so sensitive, but got mad when I found out that uncut guys have one, too. It just only comes out when it's time to play.

When I was a youngster, I learned about circumcision in such a way that I believed it was reserved for Jewish people. Later, at a friends house, I saw an image in a foreign porno mag of a man who was missing the head of his penis (I don't know why, I couldn't read the text).

This lead me to believe that Jewish men were all missing the head of their penes, and that's what circumcision was.

Here's the worst part:

This stayed with me until I was 23! It was very embarassing when I mentioned to a girlfriend that I couldn't imagine having a circumsized penis, and she had to tell me that I was very silly because I was circumsized. I was lucky that she thought it was so rediculous, that I must have been joking.

I had to look it up later to find out why it was funny.

This happened when I was about 4 years old... My brother, who was about 1 yr. at the time was getting a bath from my mom. I accidently walked in on them because it was almost time for my bath. I then saw my brothers parts, and I saw they were different than mine. I thought there was something wrong with me because I didn't have a penis. And I actually thought if I started doing boy things, then I would "grow" one. Then my mom explained that I'm a girl and my brother's a boy, and that boys and girls have different parts. So, I learned about the difference between a male and a female at a really young age.

When my sister went through puberty, she came out of it with... shall we say, quite generous proportioning. Being only twelve years old at the time, I came under the impression that when I was sixteen, my breasts would be as large as hers... sadly, they never came close.

This wasn't actually my belief; it was, in fact, my little brother. It happened one embarrassing afternoon when, clearly enthralled by his contortionist capabilities, he asked me: "Can you twist your weewee?"

I don't believe I have ever been more mortified, but I managed to explain to him that girls - and consequentially, I - did not come equipped with these. He didn't believe me, and had to go ask our mother to be sure. Boy, what a shocker that must have been for the li'l guy!

When I was little I swear one of my older sisters (I'm the youngest of 4 girls) told me that if I always wore my bra (like to bed) that my breast wouldn't grow. Well I was a tomboy and I would wear sports bras all the time, until they fell apart. Needless to say my breast did grow and I am now a size 36B.
