When I was little, I thought my mom didn't have a vagina, like me, I thought that she had a patch of hair instead of a vagina.

I used to think the umbilical cord was connected to the genitals of newly born babies, and that when the cord was cut the midwife had to be very careful-if the baby was a boy she might accidentally cut his penis off, and if the baby was a girl she might not cut enough off and there would be all this excess cord just dangling.

When my son was entering puberty, he realized a testicle had descended while he was taking a bath. He then proceeded to run out, screaming and covered in bubbles, "Dad! We need to go to the hospital, NOW! I have a tumor!" He then explained his discovery to me. "Oh no," I replied. "Get dressed and get in the car! Hurry!" I then took him to the hospital, but only to have the doctor explain it to him. Hey, I didn't want to do it!

I used to think that circumsicion is when they cut a girls penis off when she was born. I pictured it like "It's a girl! Now we have to cut her penis off, 'cuz that's just how we do things". I remember wondering why they had to do that, because it must have hurt to get it sliced off!

I used to think when babies were born that the parents would decide whether to make it a girl or a boy by chopping the umbilical cord to size. That is, if they wanted a girl they would cut the umbilical cord short (leaving only the clitoris -- which I thought was a tiny penis), and if they wanted a boy they would leave the umbilical cord as long as they wanted to make the penis.

When I was little, my mom told me that the place I pee out of was my "bottom".

As you might imagine, I got really confused later in life when I heard the word "bottom" used in other ways.

I remember once I was watching a movie, and a mom was talking to her son, and she said something like, "Tommy, if you don't do your homework I'm going to spank your bottom with a belt!"

Not only did I think that was completely AWFUL, I was like, "Boys can have bottoms, too?!"

So for a while I thought boys could have vaginas, and girl's could have penises, and it was only having boobs that determined your sex.

I used to believe men had to squeeze their penus to wee. I believed that when they needed the loo, they had to go or there bladders would explode! Otherwise how do you explain their need for the loo if they didn't wet themselves?
My dad explained to me at the age of 10 because of an innocent comment. But I think he had something to do with this belief...

When i was little my sister told me that no one had bum cracks. She said that one day God was chopping his vegtables and he dropped the knife. A man was bending down to pick something up and the knife cut him a crack. Every one loved it and decided to make there own. I thought this for years and i asked her how we had them as no one had cut our bums and she just laughed. She had me going for years.

I was a very sheltered child (as well as a late bloomer), and even though I had had a "growing and changing" class in fifth grade, I was somewhat clueless about my own body. So when my breasts started to form in middle school, it just happened to coincide with the health class discussions about breast cancer. I was mortified! I remember sitting in the back of the class and feeling like my world was ending. I thought I had breast cancer, even though I was only 12, because the description they gave was "lumps in the breasts." I did not realize, until a few months later when I finall broke down in tears and told my mother that I had breast cancer, that a woman's breasts are SUPPOSED to have tissue growing in them, because that's how they form... I had always thought that they just kind of expanded, like they were filled with air.

I used to believe that 'Shagging' meant flopping around, after reading a book about a shaggy dog with floppy hair.
I was about 7 years old and i was watching a tv show called 'top of the pops' with my sister and the babysitter who was looking after us.
The man who was singing on it was wearing tight leather trousers and was dancing in a way that made his willy 'flop around'.
So i exclaimed "hey look his willy's shagging!"
my sister who is much older than me burst into fits of laughter along with the babysitter.
I sat there laughing with them because i thought they found it funny that his willy was 'flopping around' too.
later on that evening they told me what 'shagging' really meant.
:D
oops!

I should really learn when to shut up...

When I was little my mom would refer to my penis as a "spout". Until one day in 4th grade when human anatomy was introduced to us, I stood up and proudly said, "It's not called a penis, it's called a spout!"

When I was three, my mom was babysitting my cousins and I watched her change my youngest cousin's diaper. I had never seen a penis before and asked my mom what was between his legs.

A week later, my mom took me grocery shopping and I saw her put something in the cart that caught my eye.

"What's that," I asked.

"Peanuts," she said.

I was horrified and said, "YOU MEAN THEY SELL THEM IN A JAR?!?"

She had no clue what I meant and said, "of course they do silly. What are you talking about?"

I pointed to my crotch and whispered, "You know, peanuts!"

I use to believe that people of different ethnicities had different genitalia. So African American males differed from Asian Men or Caucasian women differed from Mexican woman, and etc.

When my sister and I were young there was an elderly woman who watched us some times. She told us that if we touched our private areas than snakes would grow out of them and everyone would know that we had touch ourselves. She obviously was warning us about the "dangers" of masturbation, but we were too young to know what she was talking about. So my sister and I became scared to even wash down there just in case snakes grew out.

before i realized that there was such a thing as a transexual, and that i was one, i believed that i was supposed to have been born with a penis. i couldnt figure out why i didnt have one, but i was convinced that if i kept looking, i would find one. i was always looking for penis shaped things on the ground, or at yard sales, hoping to find a used one that could be glued or at least paper-clipped back on.
