I remember once I counted to 10 in Latin in kindergarten (for my own amusement, we weren't actually LEARNING to count to 10 in Latin.) Since the Latin for 6 is "sex", I remember some kids told me I said a "bad word" when I got to 6, and said "sex" in place of 6. I didn't understand what the big deal was, after all 6 is just a number so how could it be bad?! I thought these kids were just making up lies to scare me.

Also, in case yer wonderin' (not that you are), I was one of the many children who asked one of his parents how babies are made. They told me it's when "a mommy and daddy love each other very much". It never occurred to me they had to get naked in order to do this, and when I found that out at about age 10, I was pretty grossed out.

My dad used to tell my sisters and I that before a boy could kiss us, he had to kiss my dad--the same way he wanted to kiss us!!
It worked for a while...

My sister was told that "making love" meant baking heart-shaped cookies in your underwear. She believed it until she was 12!

Once I finally figured out that sex was a bit more than hugging and kissing, I thought that you could only have sex doggie-style! I was flipping through channels one night and went past a movie in which two people were having sex (I still remember, it was Campfire Tales) in the doggie position and I thought that was the only way to have sex. Much later when I heard someone make a sexual reference to being "flat on her back" I was confused as hell.

when i was in first grade, my twin sister came up to me and asked, "do you know what sex is?" i said no and she said "it's when two adults take off all their clothes, get into bed and start kissing. they need to be under the covers too..." i was disgusted, and for the longest time i thought that was the only way to have sex. exactly as she said, you had to be naked, under the covers, and all you do is kiss the entire time.

I used to think sex was when a guy made a girl naked and hugged her. Then he kissed her all over. I thought this until about 7 or 8 when I was at my friend's house and I got up to go to the bathroom and her mom was screaming and her dad was saying "oh yeah, a little lower." I was scarred for life.

Until the age of 9 I was thinking that 'making love' meant lying in the bed and kissing. The reason was that I was watching the 'Bold and the Beautiful' and every day I was reading the updates. It was saying 'Brook and Ridge talk and then make love' and then I was watching them talking and then kissing and lying in the bed.

I used to beleive sex was just kissing naked. So because of this I wonderd if you could get pregnant if you kept one sock on, or stood real far apart while kissing.

In 5th grade, a friend of mine told me that an 'orgy' was when people did drugs and had sex at the same time.

When I was in the first grade, my friend told me that sex was when:

the mommy and the daddy went into the bathroom naked. the mommy kissed the daddy's privates and vise vera. then, the mommy became pregnant!

this was the same friend that told me you can get pregnant by kissing too much.

i learned the truth about this when i asked my mom, boy...was she surpised!

i used to think that there was no movement in the sexual act. in my mind, penetration would occur and then you'd just lie there. unbelievably, i thought this until i was about seventeen.

I was quite a knowing teen, and one day, When my Dad had comehome from work, and was reading the paper, I asked him 'in all innocence'

"Daddy, what's a nymphomaniac? I've heard the word on the TV. What does it mean?"

My Dad went red, rustled the paper and looked really embarassed and said:

"It's Joan Collins, now shut up!"

Bless!

A few days ago, my girlfriend and I went to eat at Pizza Hut. There was a very loud little league baseball team, probably between ages 8 and 12. They were all talking about their girlfriends (obviously made up) and coming up with reasons why none of the others could meet them such as they were international models and traveled a lot. The conversation went on and one of them asked something about what a wet dream was. there was a bit of a pause and one of the kids said very loudly that it was when you peed while sleeping. ... All the other boys agreed, and my girlfriend and I started laughing uncontrollably at our table.

My mother oversees the sex-ed program in our school district. She is very open to talk about sex and would often talk to myself, my sister, and two step-brothers about sex. She believed that it is better to learn from her than our great public school system.

Well, before we entered sex-ed at school, she gave us these books to read about sex and puberty. To see if we had read them, she would ask us questions about what we had read.

One night, while sitting around the dinner table, she asked my youngest step-brother (about 11 at the time) if he knew what sex was. He said yes, so she asked what it was. He hesitated a moment and the with confidence he said, "It is when a guy pees inside of a girls vagina to get her pregnant." ... The rest of us broke out in laughter.

I used to believe that you would always have a baby when you had sex, no matter what. I think my mom told me this to make sure that I never slept with anyone until I was married. I also believed that people only had sex for fun. In other words, they got ready for bed, then said "Let's have a baby!" and lay down together. Very industrious.
