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

When I was 3, I used to think that "dawdling" was touching your private area. So my mom would say "Stop dawdling! We gotta go! " I would get upset and say "I'm not touching my wee wee!"

My sister didn't understand penises and vaginas when she was little. When she saw my dad coming out of the shower without any clothes on she yelled "Dad, you're pooping!!!"

When i was like 6 I heard a male friend say they had been hit in the nuts. I therefore assumed that male or female, if you got hit in the lower privates that they had been hit in the "nuts". My dad was quite to surprised to hear his little girl exclaim that she had been hit in the "nuts"...

When I was a kid I heard on the news that Tom Green only had one ball. (I found out much later this was because of cancer.)

At the time I assumed that the number of testicles a boy had varied. I guessed that they most commonly had 1-3. I believed this until about seventh grade.

I thought making out meant trying to see something (because of how people say "I can't quite make that out" or whatever)

Based on close observations of sweater topology, I used to believe that there were two varieties of adult female bosoms, one kind with two separate breasts, and another kind with one horizontal breast from one side to the other.

Our babysitter told my brother that he would go blind if he touched his own penis. I distictly remember him (he was 6, I was 4) asking if he could only touch it enough to need glasses instead of going blind.

When I was nearing my 5th birthday, may 8 year old sister told me ALL babies are born with a penis, but when children turn 5, half of them loose their penises and become girls. I wanted to remain a boy, so for several weeks prior to, and several weeks following my 5th birthday, I used packing tape to hold my penis on.

When I was younger I thought being circumsized meant that you had a sex change. When I noticed that I had a scar on my penis I asked my parents what it was. They told me I had been circumsized. I was devistated.

I don't know how I came to belive this theory.All babies are born as girls.You become a "boy" if you sneeze,or cough too hard.It pops out,and you're done being a girl.I used to dread having a cold.When I would sneeze,I would rush to the bathroom,just to make sure I hadn't "popped".
