When I was younger I used to believe you grew breasts by drinking milk. I would drink obsessive amounts of milk so I would grow breasts. I believed this until I was a flat 11 year old. Then I stopped drinking milk alltogether and they grew. Go figure.
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!
When I was little, my parents referred to round, spherical poops as "balls" - so of course, whenever boys referred to their "balls", I thought they were talking about their bowel movements. At school, a girl dared a boy to shout "MY BALLS ARE BIG!!!" I remember thinking, "hmm, that's not such an embarassing dare."
When I was a little girl my Aunt told me if I would rub chicken doo doo on my boobs they would be very large. Yes, as bad as I hate to admit it I tried it and their is definitely no truth to the tale!
Oh this is SO embarrassing...When I was 17 I was in study hall talking about how when my female hamster goes pee the fur in that area was wet for a while and I thought it was gross. My two female friends said "well excuse her! They don't make toilet paper for hamsters!" I said "No, she didn't poop...she peed" I had NO IDEA that girls had to wipe after peeing AND pooping!!! It just never crossed my mind! I also thought until I was 15 that when you had sex with a girl there was only one hole...the hole you have sex with and they pee out of were the same thing. I knew NOTHING about girls.
As a child I knew that girls didn't have penises, but I thought they might have testicles.
I also thought that women's breasts contained their lungs.
When I was 4 I had an infant cousin who was a little boy. When he was getting his diaper changed I saw this bizarre wrinkly thing between his legs. I didn't have one so of course I thought it would eventually dry up and fall off (like a scab) and my cousin and would be normal.
After I found out that little boys got to keep their wrinkly gizmo I felt a little cheated but I'm not sure why.
When I was about 9 I remember my friend telling me that you only grew pubes once you'd had sex... I went straight home and started furiously yanking out what pubic hair I had with a pair of tweezers!
When I was a child, I never really was clear on the idea that there were only two genders. I thought that there were an infinite variety of anatomies for people, and that "male" and "female" was kind of a organizing word, but had no real meaning. My parents would tell me I was "special", and I thought that meant that I was anatomically different from everyone else. So when they got around to telling me about real human anatomy, genitalia and what not, I had a real hard time accepting it. I couldn't bear the idea that all females had the same parts, and that all males had the same parts.
When I was very young and still sharing a bath with my big brother, I saw his tackle and started crying. He looked at me reassuringly and said "It'll grow".
I'm still waiting.
My best friend used to beleive that his testicles were his lungs. It was because they moved when he coughed. Idiot.
I used to think that if you ever grew hair around ur 'john willie', as my mum called it, a magical elf would come in the night and wax it.
when i was 12, i asked my brother how he could ride his racing bike without being in pain. he looked at me completely baffled and asked me why i had asked such a question. i thought that mens 'bits' were in the same position as mine - directly under them between their legs - and thought that the skinny seat must really hurt. he laughed so much he cried!
When I was eight, some friends and I had convinced some girls that male genitalia were detachable, and that boys were required to keep their penii in their lockers throughout the school day. The girls were fascinated, and demanded to see them. We pleaded modesty and declined.
My sister started using tampons when she was about 18, and every time she had to go for a wee, she took the tampon out and, after the wee, put it back in. She didn't know there were 2 orifices. We didn't have sex education in those days!
I used to believe that your loins were the muscles in your legs. i only found out the truth yesterday when my boyfriend told me what they really were - i am 24 and i'm still not sure that he's right!!!
I used to think that the doctor could chose the babies gender by cutting the umbillical cord long(a boy) or cut it all of(a girl). Now I know that thats not how it happened, and that the cord connects your stomach!
When I was a young girl, my mother apparently could not bear the thought of her daughters saying the word "vagina" so she taught me and my 2 sisters that it was called a "tushie." It wasn't until I was in 6th grade and my teacher told a male student that she was "gonna nail his tushie to the wall" that I realized my mother had lied to me.
when i was about 5, i thought that a penis was called a peanut. My brother was walking across the hall in just a towel and it accidentally dropped and i saw his parts. The next day i was with my brother and his friends and i said something about seeing him naked. his friends asked me what it looked like and i said it looked like a peanut
I overheard my grandmother (77yo) talking with my aunt (58yo) about how she's had a hard lump at the top(front) of her 'min' (how she referrs to her genitals) and that she's spent years trying to scrub it off. My aunt explained to her that it's her clitoris. My Nan then said that she's never heard of one of those..... It's not just kids who can be naive!
