when i was a kid my mom told me that there were sharp teeth in the vagina, naturally this scared me beyond belief....come to think about it, it's probably a huge part of why i'm now gay lol

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.

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.

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!"

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 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.

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.

I'm a girl, and when I was little, I used to think that I would one day grow a penis. I figured this because once I saw my dad naked, and knew that guys have penises, and not too much later I saw my grandmother naked. Both of them were awfully hairy between their legs, and I knew it wasn't right to look at naked people so I didn't get a good look, I just figured she had a penis too. So i just figured that since they both looked a lot alike, and that a full grown man has a penis, that my clit would get bigger and turn into a penis one day. I couldn't wait to be a grown up and have a penis.

In the fourth grade, my girl friend and I (I'm also a girl) had an argument over which hole the baby came out of.
At the time neither of had a very good understanding of our own anatomy.
I didn't know I had a vagina because I couldn't see it, I thought you peed out of your clit, I knew it wasn't called a penis, so I just called it my pee thing. So I figured the baby came out your butt hole since one can't fit out a tiny little pee hole.
My friend was aware she had a vagina, and she referred to it as a "pee hole" since neither of us were even aware of the word "vagina". So she said that the baby came out your pee hole (she was talking about a vagina, but I thought she was talking about a clit)
So we argued about it for the longest time until I learned I had a vagina thanks to a book about "girls growing up"
but I still thought you pee'd from your clit.
It wasn't until much later that we realized there is actually a little hole between the clit and the vagina where the pee comes from. Turns out we were both wrong about something.

When I was in year 5, one of the girls in my class convinced us all that masturbation was when you squeezed your boobs and milk came out.

Up until I was about 13 years old, whenever I heard the phrase "busting a nut", as in ejaculating, I thought that the man literally squeezed his testicle until it burst open.

So I didnt understand how a man could do it more than twice in his life, considering he only has two testicles.

I didnt even comprehend the pain this scenario would cause.

When I was young when I daydreamed about kissing boys my clitoris would pulse.

I always thought that clenching my teeth together would solve the problem.

I'm not sure where I picked it up, but I used to believe that the word "ejaculation" was just another term for a coughing/sneezing fit, or shivering.

So one day in grade three I burst out hacking and the young female teachers goes "Liam, are you okay?"
and I said "Don't worry, I'm just ejaculating."

Another time it was extremely cold in my room so I went downstairs and said, "Mom, could you turn the heat on? It's so cold in my room that I started ejaculating."


God.

I didn't know the difference between a penis and testicles, but I'd heard of "balls," so I thought penises looked basically like a bunch of meatballs stuck together in a row. When I was eight, this came up in conversation with a male friend - I drew a picture for him and he laughed hysterically and then drew me an accurate picture.

I had overheard a kid in school talking about naming his cat Boner and I had no idea that the word had anything to do with the male anatomy. I had assumed he named his cat after some famous motorcycle rider or wrestler and because I liked this kid I decided imitate him and name my new pet frog Boner. My mom gave me the weirdest look when I told it's name and I didn't find out why until 3 years later. It doesn't help that I had written Boner on the back of all of photos I have of my frogs.

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.

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!"

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!"
