In high school, like until I was 17, I knew gay men had a variety of ways they had sex. I did not, however, understand what scissoring was in terms of lesbian sex. I just thought there was mostly hand activity involved. I was also a very politically literate kid (contradictory, I know) and was very concerned with the problem of female genital mutilation in many countries. So at lunch one day one of my girl friends made a joke about scissoring and I was SO FURIOUS at her that she would make a joke about such a completely terrible thing that was done to women and girls. She explained to me what scissoring really was and I was mortified at my mistake.

Also, when I was in 3rd grade, I sort of had a generic understanding that sometimes people had something called sex and sometimes that made babies. But I really had no idea what the word sex meant at all. So I overheard some of the bigger kids at school talking about their friend and said she was bumping and grinding with her boyfriend and they got pregnant. I was confused and decided it must mean that if a boy bumps into you and sort of rubs against you as you walk past, even on accident, that must be what sex really was. So later that week, a boy bumped into me, brushed past, and I fell down. Went home in tears because I was sure I was pregnant. Told mom a boy bumped and grinded me and now I was pregnant. She started crying because she thought something terrible happened to me, and asked me to tell her exactly what happened. I did, and she started to laugh which scared me more. She then said that was just an expression for sex and had nothing to do with someone bumping into you. Still didn't understand what sex was but was happy I couldn't do it by accident. Got the talk officially a few weeks later when I walked in on her and dad.

Until I was 8 I thought that people could only kiss if they were married. I thought actors in movies who weren't married in real life wore fake lips to kiss. I spent so much time wondering how they got fake lips to look so real

When I was 9 or 10, I overheard my sisters making fun of lesbians and I asked what they were. My sister said that they were people from the country of Lesbos. I got really angry because it didn't seem right to make fun of someone because of where they came from!

I thought that a man and woman became pregnant by lying in a bed together. I couldn't really understand why my mom wasn't pregnant all the time, but it seemed plausible at the time.

Till i was 11, i believed sex meant licking each other's bottom. I didnt ever imagine till then that it had any connection with producing babies.

One night when I was little I heard my parents making weird moaning noises since I couldn't sleep. I was convinced they were being attacked by a spider, for whatever reason.

Now I know good and well...

I used to think that in order to have sex, you had to pee or poop in a cup at the same time as another person, trade the cups, and then quickly consume the contents. This was only after I was told that kissing isn't sex (I was 4 and thought I was pregnant because a little boy forced a kiss on me), and I was taking a stab in the dark as to what sex actually was. I even took a Tupperware container to the bathroom once to see if I was "any good" at sex, which of course was decided based on how well you can pee in a cup.

When I was five, I asked my Sunday school teacher to define "fornication". She said it meant to use bad words. I believed her until I was a thirteen when my classmate were talking about a woman who had fornicated and therefore had sinned. I said I didn't think saying bad words should be considered a sin. They looked at me as though I were crazy and explained the concept. I still went to the dictionary to find out for sure.

When I was in grade school (and probably into middle school), I thought sex was when a guy put his penis in a girl's belly button to get her pregnant...I'm not sure why I thought girl belly buttons were different than a guy's

When I was 13 I used to believe that the yellow bag in the shower was for me to releave myself.
I releaved myself for years in the yellow bag. My mom walked in on me once and got a good laugh.

When I was about 8, (and a very innocent 8 year old at that), my friend Kelly came round and she said we should have sex, I asked what that was and she replied that it's when you lie on top of one another. So we did, for about 10 minutes, and then later announced to my mum what we'd been doing. She never gave me that 'talk'. I worked it out age 13 in sex ed class.

My mother and I have never discussed this ever again, I am 20.

When I first learned about sex when I was really little, I saw my parents driving licenses. Of course, on there it says "sex" and then either M or F so I though it was marvelous, or fantastic haha. Wow.

When I was 5 I read an photo case book in the agony aunt section of the local paper that involved a man shouting "Why is my daughters chest ripped, did you sleep with her?" Looking back my young mind probably missed out the word "shirt". Until the age of 12 I was convinced that one day I would have to have my chest ripped open and had nightmares involving as such.

I thought that sexist was another name for prostitute (like a scientist does science so a sexist does sex!)

When I first learned about gay people I thought it was something that had only started fairly recently like within the last 50 years or so. I thought this until I asked my mom one day and she informed me that there had been gay people as long as there had been people!

When I was 10 I used to think that masturbation meant molestation because the words were so simillar. So whenever I heard about masturbation i was thought people were just trying to be edgy by talking about pedophiles.
