I used to believe that during sex, a man urinated inside the woman (I had no concept of fluids), and was thus repulsed by sex until my mother told me what the real deal was, when I was 11, a year after we had the "talk".

I don't know how I got it into my head, but for some reason I thought sex was equal to a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, because when you put the two things together something great happens(I don't know). Anywho, I had this crush on this girl in about 1st grade, and told her that I thought we should make a sandwich, thinking that she had jelly inside her and that my peanut butter in my penis would make something amazing. I guess I wasn't too far off in the end.

When I was a kid my mom explained sex to me but only the reproductive part. I didn't know anything about erections so I though people had sex by scissoring.

Because my scope of the naked body was limited to my own (female) and my barbies', I used to believe that sex was when a male and female rubbed their bodies together, making sure that the lower private parts were touching. I had no idea what was really involved. :)

When I saw "F" under sex (i think this was on my birth certificate) I thought I had 'failed' sex. I figured this meant I was somehow bad or dirty and was rather embarrassed by it. But I felt a little better when I saw my mom's driver's liscence... turns out she failed too!

I used to believe that sex was when a boy and a girl would lie on their sides and hump each others legs.

My mother gave me a book, "How You Are Changing", rather than a sex talk. Notably, this book is written for with a Christian approach to puberty, and sex. It wasn't until I was well into my teens that I realized it was possible to have sex without being married.

... or being able to do the splits.

I used to believe having sex was when you would "sleep with someone". I mean sleep. And you had to roll around on the bed naked with a guy, and fall asleep. That's how you have sex, and that's how babies are made.

Back when I was a kid, I thought that gay people were attracted to other gay people. Which is kinda true, in a way . . . except I thought that gay men could be attracted to lesbians, and vice versa.

Turns out, not so much!

Until I was 13, I thought missionary position was impossible in real life as it would hurt the girl being under a man. Imagine my surprise.

when I was younger my older sister told me parents watch adult movies where people are naked. well one day i wanted to watch nightmare on elm street and my mom said NO because its an adult movie. so when she was outside i put in the vcr tape in and fast forward it to see naked people and when it showed freddy Kougars face. I hurry up and shut it off and went and told my sister that our parents like to watched people with melted faces get naked

When I was younger my mom explained sex to me as a "special hug." I thought that meant hugging and kissing at the same time.

At around 6 years old, I heard the word "sex".... A few of us who rode the bus together, agreed that "sex" was lying naked with the opposite sex and eating fruit.

When I was 9 I read a quote from a celebrity in Reader's Digest that said something alone the lines of "when a man has an orgasm, his legs shake a bit and then he goes to sleep". So for the next few weeks until I investigated further I believed that!

My mother never bothered to raise me up with a clear image of sex. Whenever a bedscene on TV she didn't hide it from me.
One day when she was washing her face in the bathroom I walked up to her and asked. 'Does sex hurts?' 'No, she said'. Confused as I was; 'Why are the peoples faces so full off pain when doing it then?' She smiled 'Because they like it so much, it hurts'

I used to believe that when people had sex, they just got naked and kissed under the covers. My mother explained how sex worked to me at a young age, but the real image I got was from watching my grandma's soap operas.
