I was taught by religious nuns who wore a cape like garment over their habit. Hence, hiding their breasts. I thought they didn't have any. So, I deducted that if I didn't grow breasts when I got older then I would know that I would be a nun & wear a habit like them & teach school.

When I was in first grade a boy down the street told me that the purpose of testicles was to spin really fast so that our urine would have velocity. This was my going theory for at least a year.

When I was younger my cousin once told me that boys had two testicles because one was filled with pee and the other was filled with tadpoles that made babies! I believed him for years, and always wished I could get the peeing one cut off so I didn't have to go to the toilet anymore!

top belief!

After masturbating a bit, I tried to imagine how sex must be. I assumed that men's penises couldn't be much bigger than my index finger because it hurt to try and stick more than one finger up there--how would "it" even fit?
When I got curious and sought out pornography, I was SHOCKED at the size of penises, and TERRIFIED about having sex. I was just certain my future husband would find out I was too small to accomodate him. I thought I was a total freak because my vagina was too small.

I believed (well into my 20s) that when a woman was pregnant/had babies their nipples would magically open up to reveal a small hole that the milk would come out of. It wasn't until I visited a friend of mine with a newborn that I was clued into the "nippples are like sponges" theory.

When I was a clueless teenager, this other girl whom I perceived to be more worldly and knowledgeable about such matters, told me that semen was full of special proteins and minerals and if swallowed would endow me with porcelain smooth skin. I believed her because she really had good skin.

clarification : I wised up soon enough because Iím not *that* stupid.

When I was 7, my baby sister was born. When I saw her little vulva, I thought she had a little butt in front and a bigger one in back.

When My younger brother was little he would play with his self ( if ya know what I meen) and we would tell him that if he did it again it would bite his fingers off. so a couple hours later my mom saw him doing the potty dance and she told him to go pee. he told her he was scared because if he would pull it out to pee it would bite him.

when my friend's sister was, like, 5, she once asked her father, "daddy, what's that knob on you that you pee out of?" enough said.

Until sometime in my teen years I thought that women, when they were in the water (pool or tub) would fill up with water in their vagina and uterus, with it draining out when they got out of the water.

I never knew what a girl's reproductive organ was until I was in 6th grade, but until I was like seven, I didn't even know they had one. I always thought that they just had skin where a male's reproductive organ is. One day at my babysitter's house, I saw her changing a female baby's diaper and I looked. I saw an odd-looking thing that looked like a cave, or something. I thought until later on in my life that girl's have penises that simply cave in instead of out. Therefore, I finally thought I understood when my mom said they peed out of their butts--their penises would face the opposite direction, therefore causing the pee to come out of their anal hole.

When my friend and i used to have sleepovers, we would often play truth or dare and most of the dares would involve us getting naked and doing things with our bodies (we were strange children). Well during one of these games, i dared my friend to take off her pants and panties. we were about 10 or 11, and just starting to develop. She showed us her bigger clitoris and said, hey guys, i'm going through puberty! look, i'm growing a penis! i was concerned that my friend was developing into a boy for the longest time.

When I was about four, I had just come home from the beach with my Mother and cousin, she was about 2 or 3. Anyway, we both showered together, being so young, and I looked down where her weiner would be. My eyes widened, and I began to scream "MOMMY MOMMY COME QUICK,". She ran into the bathroom and asked what was wrong. I pointed at her vagina and said "Look, Susy hasn't grown a pee-pee yet".

I fully believed (before I learned learned that men had an unlimited supply of it until the vasectomy), that I only had a limited supply of semen. Mostly helped by the fact that I never had the same amount of it whenever I'd ejaculate. So I was always worried that I wouldn't have any left for when I was older and ready to have kids.

I used to believe that during an erection, a man's penis remained pointed downward. I couldn't imagine how a couple could possibly have sex in any position other than the obvious! Then my 9th grade health class showed (much to my shock!) a thermoscopic video of a man getting an erection. I think I almost said, "Ohh! I get it!" outloud (I didn't though!)

I grew up an extremely sheltered and overprotected girl. One day, when I was perhaps in 6th or 7th grade, my father and I were discussing some aspect of nature and survival. Figuring I was just being logical (and not knowing their true function), I told him a woman's breasts were there as extra fat to provide nutrition should the woman become malnurished or not have enough to eat. My father just laughed and explained their true function was to feed babies. So I asked where the breasts were on animals (since they don't protrude), and he explained how some animals had them inside rather than out.
