I think I was around 10. My curiosity was just beginning to awaken. And then it came to me. In a flash of insight I saw how sex was performed. A man takes his finger and places it into a womans belly button. Knowledge is power!

When I was 7 or 8, my first real exposure to the concept of homosexuality came to me by watching the movie "Norman... Is That You?" on TV, starring Redd Foxx. Somehow, I got the idea that Foxx's son was worried his father would think the son was gay, when really he wasn't, he was just the "real man" in a relationship with a gay man. In other words, I thought that gay men were men who wished they were women, and so they liked straight men; and because of this, a straight man could be in love with a gay man, but not be gay himself.

I know. That's what you get from learning life lessons from TV.

When I was younger, I overheard my older sister and a friend call a girl a lesbian. Being a curious seven year old, I naturely asked what a lesbian was. My sister's friend told me straight-faced that a lesbian was a short person.
The next week at soccer practice, I got into a little spat with a boy on my team. He was much shorter than me, so I called him lesbian. He looked at me very surprised, then ran to our coach yelling that I had said a curse word! My mother had to explain the real meaning to me after that.

I used to believe that the way you had sex was to take off your shirt and show your chest muscles - this would make the woman excited and she would want to press herself against you (fully clothed) and kiss you, thereby getting pregnant. You did not make her pregnant if you were wearing your shirt.
I attribute this belief to way too many Hercules and Sinbad movies as a child.

My mom was always very open about sex. She told me that when two people were in love, they got together, had sex, and that's where babies came from. When I was in preschool I had this strange picture of what sex was. I pictured two people laying out on banana chairs next to a pool. The woman was wearing a bathing suit, some sunglasses, and a large sun hat. The man was in some swim trunks. They were just enjoying themselves and getting a tan. To this day I still don't understand why I thought that, but I enjoy a good laugh over it on occasion.

I used to believe that gay sex involved a man sticking his penis inside another man's penis.

When I was young I asked how people got pregnant, and was told that a man and woman would need to lay with each other in bed. I took this very literaly and while playing the childhood game of "house" was scared that even laying down next to a girl on the floor as a pretend bed would get a girl pregnant.

One day for fear of having to explaining what I knew to my friends, and because I liked the girl I was playing house with, I layed next to a neighbor girl as pretend parents while playing "house". None of the other kids seemed to have a problem with this. That night I could hardly sleep, and confronted my mom the next day that I had gotten the neighbor girl pregnant.

That turned out to be an interesting day.

when I first found out through the playground that people could be gay, I was extremely puzzled and couldnt figure out exactly what they did. I was about 6 at the time and I came up with the idea that men had sex by having 'sword fights' with their penis' !!!!!!

Thanks to the lyrics to many hyperbolic love- and sex-related songs, I used to think that the usual or average length of time it took to have sexual intercourse was "all night."

Before the age of 11, I used to believe that girls had the same sexual organs as boys. One day when I was 11 years old one of my friends FALSELY affirmed my beliefs by telling me that girls like to have their penises played with when having sex. Shortly after that I got into a "you show me yours, and I'll show you mine" game with my very first girlfriend. When she pulled down her panties I SCREAMED and CRIED and asked her "Where's your penis!" She cracked up laughing, as did her mother who ran into the room trying to find out why I screamed so loud! I was sent home and my mother promptly told me the differences between boys and girls, as well as how babies are made. Before this I had thought that sex was the boy and the girl taking turns sticking their penis up the other persons butt!

When I was a kid, (around age seven) I thought that when animals “mated” that meant they got married.
So one day, my 8-year-old guy friend and I were playing Lion King in his yard as his father did yard work. I was the girl lion and he was the boy lion as usual. Then, going up to his father, we announced very proudly that we were going to mate that night and we were going to have a really good time.
To make a long story longer, the look on his father's face was priceless, and the memory still embarrasses me.....

Well, until I was about 10, I had this notion that Lesbians were from a country called "Lesbia", & only women could live there.

One day when I was about 12 (just entering the stage of sexual awareness), I walked in on my brother watching "adult tv". I had already gotten the 'birds and bees' talk but I still didn't quite get it. When he invited me in, i of course jumped at the chance. He proceeded to tell me that "everytime you masturbate, God kills a kitten." I was aghast at the thought and of course believed him. Then, with a sadistic smile, he began to 'wank his willy'. I begged and cried for him to stop. Upon realizing the futility of my endeavor, i ran sobbing to my mom, crying "please don't let stephen kill a kitten!" Needless to say he had a lot of explaining to due, but in the resulting confusion everyone "forgot" to tell me it wasn't true...it was several years (and a whole lot of guilt) later that I finally realized he'd made it up

A friend of mine told me this story.
She learned from a sex-ed book for kids, when she was about 9 or 10, the details of the female genitalia. She asked her mom what the clitoris was for. Her mom told her she'd figure it out on her own when she gets older.

Couple months later they were having people over for dinner, and my friend burst in the room and just yelled in front of everyone : "Mom, I know what the clitoris is for !".

Could there be a worst timing for discovering masturbation ?

When I was in elementary school my mother told me that sex is when you stick your pinkys up eachothers nostrils and hum the same song.

On those little forms for YMCA sports, it always said "sex" and I put "0" everytime. I always wondered how people remembered how many times....
