“i was watching TV and at some point a character on the
show was talking about being pregnant and a flashback happened to the
“conception” and all that was shown was the two making out, so for a
long time i assumed that sex was just two people making out.”
"When I was younger, I thought oral sex was just making out."
“My sexual misconception - I thought you got pregnant from French kissing boys.
Like the egg would travel from his tongue onto yours and it would grow
in your stomach. I didn’t want to French kiss boys for years.”
“When I was growing up, my mom was pregnant and one night I heard my parents making “bedroom noises”.
My mom sounded hurt and I thought she might have had the baby while she
was trying to sleep. I was like six or seven years old. In the morning I
kept nagging my mom, and telling her that it sounded like she was in
pain last night, and my parents seemed to not want to talk about it.”
“When i was younger before i knew what penises looked
like i thought they were just like vaginas that hung down several
inches, for many years, until in 6th grade when someone compared them to
a hot dog aha.”
“I used to think that if you had any kind of sex, you would have a particular smell and people would know just by being near you.”
“I thought oral sex was people talking throughout having sex.”
“When I was about 7 or 8, I was trying to imagine what sex would look like. All I could picture was a hot dog going inside a doughnut.”
“My mom told me sex was when a man and woman cuddled each
other in bed, and then the sperm would go from the penis into the
vagina and thats how babies are made. I didn’t know the penis
had to go in the vagina so for a long time I thought the sperm just
walked out the penis and went through the bed to the vagina.”
“I thought getting pregnant depended on how long you kissed someone for.
So if you kissed for 5 minutes, you’d get pregnant, and if you kissed
for 10 minutes- twins! But if you didn’t want a baby you had to stop
kissing just before you got to 5 minutes. (I knew about sperm so I think
I thought that it took that long for sperm to travel up and into the
“I used to think gay sex involved inserting one penis
into the other (even though I realized that seemed impossible???) and
then I was upset when I found out about anal because I thought it meant
two guys wouldn’t be able to have sex while facing each other.”
“in 5th grade when I had my first class of sex ed.
the teacher was explaining how people have sex on this big diagram and I
was so confused about how the semen got into the vagina I literally
thought that the penis hovered outside of the vagina and the semen
somehow traveled into the girl and I kept on asking the teacher these
odd questions because I was just not getting it. Also, a good friend of
mine later in that class almost fainted.”
“I thought the balls went in the condom too.”
“I honestly did not understand that the penis went into the vagina until the summer before tenth grade.”
Mine was that women HATED sex. That all women never ever wanted to have
sex, and that the only way they would was by convincing them over a long
period of time and then they would hate it the whole time.
I thought the same thing, but it went a little further. I also thought
that women weren't actually attracted to any men because I never found a
man attractive I assumed women didn't either.
