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.

When I was younger, I used to call "nipples", "cripples". No lie. Total embarassment when my mother brings it up in front of my boyfriend...

My family was at Walmart one day in October-and I found a pair of Halloween Boxers and there was a "pocket" in them.

"aw how cute! "I announced to my mother- petting the "pocket" "It can hold a treat!"

Oh god-my poor mother-I was in 10th grade!

Can a penis be a treat?

when i was younger, my uncle told me that hair will grow on my fingers and hands if I masturbate.. well I didn't know what masturbating was back then, but when I found out what it was I was scared because, I got scared that the hair will cover my whole hand, it made me stop masturbating for a WHOLE month..

When I was young, I used to believe that women's breasts were mouldable like a 'stretch armstrong' action figure. You'd squeeze them and like memory foam, they would remain in that shape for a short period of time... slowly returning back to their original shape. I remembered thinking that it would be so cool to squeeze them with both hands and make them long and cylindrical and and try to loop them around each other in a semi-knot shape... I would watch as they would eventually return back to their original shape. You can imagine the look on my girlfriend when I got to 2nd base for the first time as I hovered over her squeezing away with great expectation and then realizing that I might have been mistaken about them.

When I was little I thought I had two bums because my mom referred to my vagina as my "front bum" and my actual bum to my "back bum."
Also, I thought that guys wore panties just like girls-I never heard of boxer shorts until grade 2 or 3 when my friends laughed at me for referring to a boy's underwear as his "panties" (they had little brothers which is probably why they knew the difference.)

When I was little, don't remember exactly the age but it went on for quite a while, I used to believe that the more frequently you had sex, the bigger your breasts or penis would become. So somebody with big breasts or a big penis obviously had sex every day, and someone with smaller breasts or a smaller penis didn't have sex very often. I'm not really sure when I stopped believing this.

I used to think that men had pubic hair only after they had sex (don't ask why).
so one day when I was changing with a friend in a changing room to go swimming I saw he had a bit hair "down there". I was really shocked and asked him about it (he had a girlfriend). He, being a joker, told me with a straight face that he meant to tell me and yes, it was true, but not to tell anyone. I believed him! This held up for one uncomfortable week until he couldn't bear it any longer and told me the truth. I was so embarassed! (I was 12!)

I used to believe that if you saw a naked lady you would turn to stone like one of those statues. The fear was compounded when I viewed a page out of my father's Playboy magazine and I felt something start to get hard!

My mom always called a vagina a "wee wee" (or something of that nature). So, my younger sister had a friend over who had a much older sister, and they were talking about sex. They didnt know much (They were like 7!) but I heard the word 'vagina" coming out of the room they were in, and my sister ashed her friend what that meant, and she said a girls peepee. I thought she said Buhchina (like the country), so i was convinced thats what the medical term was. Later, I said to my mom "Mommy, why is China named after a bad thing?" She was confused, so I told her that a girl's vagina was called a Buhchina. She laughed and laughed. Then, she told me the story. What was more embarassing was the fact I was about 10.

China isn't bad!

Honestly, until I was 14 years old I didn't realize this. For band camp, my instrument section has a hisotry of dropping their pants in front of the band at the end of the day on any one day. And so I, being the only girl, bought boxers for the occasion. The boys told me that tonight was the night so I went to my cabin to put on the boxers. As I put them on, I noticed a sort of hole/flap right at the crotch area and I thought, 'Oh no! My boxers are ripped!'

And then it occured to me what that was REALLY for. My friends never let me live it down.

I used to think that the number of breasts that a woman had equaled the number of children she would have. Since I only have one brother, my mom had two boobs. When a girl in my kindergarten class announced that her mom just had her sixth baby, I just sat and stared in confusion.

When I was little, I misunderstood the word 'testicles' for 'tonsils'. So, ever since my sex ed class in grade four, I would stare in shock at anybody that claimed that they had their tonsils removed.
