When I was growing I thought that when boys were born the doctors cut the cord from the penis. I really could never figure out were girls came from. I was just glad my doctor liked my parents.

My aunt convinced me at a young age that the skin on the outside of my vagina was called my "chicken", since it looked like a rooster's waddle.

I used to think that after a girl is born, the doctor cuts her between the legs to find the opening of the vagina. (I am female).

I used to think that boys grew multiple penises as they aged.

Ex.--a little boy would have one, a thirty yo would have three or four...

I read a lot of FanFictions (stories about shows that people just borrow the characters from) and for years I wasn't really up on the sexual slang. And of course, because I was curoius like all preteens and earily teenagers are, I read some light smut. And I had no idea that masturbating was called anything but that: 'masturbating'.
So when two male characters would talk about 'jacking off' or even *more* confusing to me the British 'wanking off' I just assumed it was some strange thing that was unique to those characters.
It tooke me a couple of months and some reading of more hardcore stories until I fiugered it out.
Same thing goes with a blowjob.
Also, on a side note, I thought "being in the closet" just meant you were shy.
Imagine how imbarssed I was when I told my mom one of my best friends was in the closet, and she said: "Jared's gay?"
I was mortified. I'm so glad now at 17 I know more than I did.

Not me but a boyfriend.. we were about 19 at the time so it's still a little amazing, but something he said offhand make me dig deeper and I found that he thought women's nipples were actually solid.. no holes.. and when it was time to breastfeed, the woman had to sterilize a needle and puncture a hole before any milk could come out. Just the once, but still.

The full assortment of functions the penis provides was confusing to me as a child.

When I was 9, we went on a school trip out to the middle of nowhere, and after we'd been on the road for a while, I really needed to pee. The driver told me to just hold on, so I resorted to what I always do when I have to pee and can't get to a toilet: rub my crotch vigorously.

The older kids turned around and stared at me with mischievous grins on their faces. One asked, "Why are you doing that?"

I answered, "It makes it feel better." (At the time, I didn't understand why they were giggling about me.)

Today, I'm not sure I still believe that masturbating lessens my urge to pee. In fact, 2-3 years later, I discovered my Dad's erotica collection, which described in great detail the sticky white fluid that comes out of penises when rubbed. This had never happened to me, but I really wanted to make it happen, so, for the first time, I masturbated to orgasm. Nothing came out. So I thought you had to force it out consciously. Pee came out. For the next year or two, until my body started producing semen, I peed while masturbating, thinking that was what was supposed to happen, and that my semen was simply thinner and yellower than other men's. My parents threw out that mattress.

when i was in the 3rd grade, the boy across the street had a shed in his backyard and we used to go in there and play house. my two other friends were girls and then he was the only boy. one time when we were in the shed we played truth or dare and my friend shannon dared him to show us his penis. i had never seen a penis before besides my little cousin's. my cousin was not circumcised and i ahd no idea what circumcision was, so whent he boy pulled down his underware in the shed i exclaimed "yours is deformed!" the poor boy probably had issues for at least a year after that incident.

When I first discovered the little red "bump" by my hole as a child that I later found out was my clitoris, I thought for many years that it was actually a really tiny penis. This bothered me, because I knew I was a girl and I wasn't supposed to have one of those. I thought I was some sort of freak because I had a vagina AND a penis. I knew I was a girl because I had 3 older brothers and they were shaped different and talked different so I knew I wasn't like them. I started to believe that I was definitely a girl, but because my mom had given birth to so many boys before she had me that there was "boy juice" left inside her and that's why I was born with a small penis too.
Finally one day I sucked up my pride and asked my mom about it. She told me that what I had there was perfectly normal and it was just another piece of my vagina. I was so very relieved......

when me and my brother were little (5 and 3) we used to be obbsessed with talking about penises so my parents told us that the reason it was taboo was because penises are like nasty and unsanitary (because she didnt want to tell us about sex)

I knew how to masturbate by the time I was 10, but never really did it that much. When I was 12, I started doing it more. MUCH more. When I had the sex-ed video, somehow, I thought you could get pregnant if you masturbated.
I WAS TERRIFIED.

Whenever boys would get hit in the crotch by a ball or something, they'd be like "ow my nuts!" so I thought "nuts" just referred to the area between your legs, and I didn't know it hurt a lot more for boys to be hit there than for girls. So whenever a ball would hit me in between the legs I'd be like "ow my nuts!"

Not realizing I was being called a lesbian, whenever a guy in my class asked me if I go to “She-She bars” I thought he was talking about some sort of Asian bar. She-She, sushi…I dunno, it sounded weird; I didn’t know he was just saying “she” twice. Took a while to click.

In grade 3 or 4 a boy asked me if I had a penis, and I said yes, because my concept of a penis was simply just where you peed out of (“PEEnis”). Silly me.

I used to think that vaginas were called chinas and penises were called peanuts. Then my mom finally broke the news to me.DUH!

when I was about 8 or 9, every time I went to the toilet I would pat the tissue to get rid of the drips (eww sorry) and my fingers would feel the vaginal opening. However I didnt know what it was, so I was very scared of the fact that my skin had broken and made a dangerous hole in my body. HA!

My dad likes rock n' roll music, and when I was a toddler he would listen to it and I would dance. There was this one song called "Big Balls" or something like that by ACDC. I thought it was a song about those huge plasticy balls in those huge bins at Wal-Mart and K-Mart. I belived this until I was ten or so, and my parents still make fun of me.
