My friend's 6 year old son recently came up to me and asked me if I knew why girls don't have penises. I asked him why, and he said, "Grandpa says that they played with them too much and they fell off!"

When I was 2 and my brother was born he was lying on the bed and I stared at him clothless for a few mins. Then I walked up to my mom and said "Thats a funny lookin' tail"
My mom still tells that story today..

I used to think that (after seeing my mum topless) that all women's breasts were supposed to sag (i thought "falling") so when I grew breasts I always was waiting for them to "fall". I now realise I wanted to be saggy!

I was in graduate school before I realize I'd been circumcised. I always thought the glans (or head) was what got cut off, so since mine was still there, I thought I had escaped the knife. It was only when I took an anatomy-related class in grad school that I learned the truth (I comped out of undergrad biology). I am extremely intelligent and had most of my tuition paid by private and State scholarships and fellowships, but this one misconception persisted well into my adult life.

Though this isn't my belief per se, when my daughter was younger (3 at the time) , I had to take her to the bathroom. Well, after she went, I had to go as well (hell, I think my bladder is smaller than hers!). As I was squatting in the stall to go, she points directly at me and exclaims, in a raised voice, "Dad!! You have a *handle* on your BUTT!!!" ... this was at a Costco, which has no ceiling and rather decent acoustics.... all I could say was "Yes, yes I do" and exit the bathroom as quickly (of course washing both hers and my hands)

When I was younger I believed that testicles were actually babies waiting to be put in a womb.

So if I saw a woman with 3 or more children, I figured she was cheating on her husband.

I used to believe that girls' titties were full of air just like balloons and they did not float in pools because of their bra.

My grandmother (and mother) used to (and still does) tell me and my sisters that if you sleep in your bra, your boobs won't grow. So we were always sure to take off our bra's before bed. Ironically enough, she (my grandmother) dosen't wear underwear to bed, does that mean that her butt grows at night?

I used to believe that testicles are there just to keep the legs apart, reducing friction.

for some bizarre reason i used to think sperm (semen) was bright luminous "kryptonite" green colour. i think it was because it seemed such a magical sort of substance, and in books or movies or tv, whenever a villain or a witch or scientist has a magic potion or antidote or something its always green? anyway i really embarrassed myself in class because i just assumed this was true i never even questioned it, and even though i was top of the class in biology, without thinking, after sex ed, when the teacher said "any questions" i shot my hand straight up and asked , yes, "what is the substance in semen which makes it bright green?" and everybody (well all the boys specially) laughed so hard, that was the first inkling i had that i was wrong about it!!!!
i was 13 years old!!!!! and several girls had already lost their virginity, so it made me look such a virgin.

Me and my friends used to believe that girls had balls to. Then once I walked in on my older siss getting out of the bath tub and what I saw I was shocked and I said: "WHERE'S YOUR BALLS?!" To this day she makes fun of me about that

When having the 'facts of life' explained to me by an older male surrogate dad, I used 2 believe that pregnancy in the opposite sex was a result of kissing. We got to the sperm part being produced in the testicles...all well and good so far...then I asked 'well how does it get all the way up THERE?'
"Hmmm...it isn't all THAT far is it?" he answered. 'Gotta be a couple of feet!' said I. He avoided that precocious 10-year-old in all locker rooms from then on.

When I was in about 6th grade and all of the other girls in my class started to get boobies I would tie a belt around my rib cage at dinner each night and think that whatever I ate would stop right at my boobies and they would get bigger. I did this for the entire 6th grade year and still remained flat as a board.

This is about my mother's belief when she was young. Her mother had a breast removed due to cancer, and therefore owned a bean-bag breast, and it used to get thrown about with the common phrase "who's got my boussom?!" She thought that all mothers only had one real breast!
