I used to believe that boys and girls had the same parts under their clothes...until I saw my brother come out of the shower. I was confused for months.

We used to beleive that the testicles were wee bags - the larger they were, the more you needed to go...

I used to think that you got an erection because you were embarressed. I know why I thought that. In a book called 'The facts of life', there was a subtitle 'Embarressing Erections'. from this subtitle I concluded that you got an erection because you were embarressed. I must have been about 7-9..

When I was really little, I used to take baths with my brother. Well, my mom had taken some pictures of us in the tub together. One day, my friend came over and saw the picture, and asked who that was with me. I replied, "thats my brother, he has a tail, but it grows in the front...!"

I used to think there were two separate entrances to the vagina, a front one for "missionary" congress and a back one for a "rear entry". Despite some perfectly good sex education and being no stranger to the occasional soft-porn mag, I held this belief right up to the age of 15, when my best friend rang me up to explain the true situation having just reached a "breakthrough" with his long-term girlfriend that afternoon. Then again, he appeared to have been labouring under a similar misapprehension himself: "It's not at the front," he said excitedly. "It's underneath!"

When I was about 10, I began growing breasts. I thought it was some tumor and i would try to smush the little nub that used to be flat...weird.

I was sure I'd turn into a boy when I grew up.Instead of'When I grown up I'm going to...' it was 'When I grow my tail I'm going to...'
No-one corrected me until I was about 8.

I used to think that a girl or woman could grow a penis at anytime on any place of their body, be it their head, their chin, their arm, their knee, whatever, and that they ranged in size from tinsy tinsy tiny (in which case women would try to disguise it with make-up and make it seem like it was just a little spot or something) to 'fully grown' size.

When I was little and saw my aunt breast feeding I very bluntly walked up to her and stated that "this one is for millk and this one is apple juice." everyone was laughing so had they never told me any different.

I was probably about 6 or 7. I had a small rash a little below my belly button (the button on my pants was nickel, which i was allergic to). When I saw this, I ran into my mom's room yelling "MOM! I'M GROWING A PENIS!" I was quite distressed, for I liked being a girl.

When I was younger I thought men had two penises, one for peeing and one for having sex.

When I was little, instead of getting the 'sex talk' my mum gave me a brief overview and then gave me a book on the subject. I read the word vagina as 'virginia' and for many years I felt very sorry for girls called that because it was a supposedly 'dirty' word (I was a very puritanical little kid).

Years later I found out the real way of pronouncing vagina, but when I was about eleven in a class presentation on sex for some reason I mispronounced it again as Virginia. Took me a long time to live that one down...

During sex ed in high school, one of my classmates asked our teacher why condoms have flavors and if you were supposed to eat them. My teacher didn't know what to say at first but eventually said that you were supposed to use it like a lollipop. I don't think my classmate got it, though.

My dad while watching Dolly Parton on TV said she must drink alot of orange juice to have breast that size. Needless to say I drunk alot of orange juice so that my chest would also be well endowed. It might work I'm a 36D.

I used to beleive that male and female anatomy were the same- that was until mommies had babies, and then they grew breasts to feed them and thats what made the difference.

For no apparent reason i used to think i had three balls. It was not until much later that i actually found out what a ball was.

i also had the belief that a testicle was a bone behind the penis as a result of my mother's embarrassed and impatient explanation. i was very confused when my brother's testicles became 'twisted' later that week.

I remember being about 4 and sitting naked in the tub. I was a little girl and thought I would eventually grow a penis, too. I thought that being a complete human being or grown up, meant having both genitals.

when i was little, my mom always called my penis, my "pegus" because that is what my older brother called it when he was 2, and she thought it was funny. So she always called it that and i thought that is what it was called until i was like 8. one kid said penis, and i said "its not penis stupid, its pegus!"

I don't know why or where I got this from, but when I was little, I referred to my vagina as my "goose".
