When you were little where did you believe babies came from? And how did you find out the icky truth? And, if you have children, what do you tell them when they start asking?

I sort of always remember there being something called "sex" involved... but I wasn't totally sure what it was.

Then when I was about 8, my friend brought a science book into school which had diagrams of sex in all it's glory. I remember we were all very amused by it all. Somehow I got the idea that willy went up mary, grew really long like a snake and touched the lungs, heart, liver and all other organs. Then nine months later a baby would be in the woman's belly. Me and my friends then formed a secret group called the Sex Club (yes, I know - :eek: ) where we would giggle about how gross and icky it all seemed.

i always thought that when mummy and daddy got married and they hugged, then god would give them a baby just like that.....:rolleyes:

i don't remember how i found out, but i know i gave my older brother 'the talk' when i was seven....:p

I guess I was about 9 when my sister explained the part "willy's" play in all this.

No idea what I thought before, don't think I believed that Stork stuff until Dok convinced me just now

I cant really remember - i wish I could because that would have been an amsuing story lol

I do remember sneaking a peek at books - until the teacher caught me and told me of!! (she was old and stuff though) good days

I think we should be so much more open to sex and sexual things - look at other countrys and their pregnancy rates etc are so much lower.

i think i kind of always knew it was about sex. i knew what sex was from a very young age, and i knew about penis's and ejaculation from an even younger age unfortunatly.


the question i used to ask all the time as a kid was "daddy tell me about everything"

"where would you like me to start hunny?"

"daddy.. where do... tshirts come from??"

true story i used to ask that one a lot, along with "whats in blood" and other strange questions....


...ah dear :S

The stork brings them, and its true i've seen proof!

If it was on a Bugs Bunny cartoon it MUST be true! :D

there is an egg in mummy and when something from daddy finds it, it'll turn into a baby...quite boring hey. The truth but not quite as graphic

I think maybe finding my dad's "magazines" when I was 5 might have given me a clue (I don't think he liked me for that one when my mum made him throw them away after)

Reet...As a weee one i always remember goin in2 the supermarket with my mar and remember lookin up on the first asle.... on the top shelf there were always huge boxes of nappies think they were pampers...an on the old skool boxes they used 2 put a picture of a babies face boy or girl....... i often wondered what was inside and maybe thats wot happend...our folks bought us from the supermarket....LOL

And as 4 telling my children (both girls...7yrs and 3 yrs).... i believe being honest is the best way....i cant be bothered with all this stork business.... my chidren know with out me goin in2 huge detail that mommy's and daddy's make babies....The older of the 2 obviously knows more than my younger 1.....but i'm sure as she gets older 2 then she'll ask more questions...... I have a very honest open relationship with my kidz.....in fact with my whole family.....I however do think u have 2 be carefull how u explain things.......

i have no idea when i found out, was probably about 8, thats how old i was when my bro was born....i remember feeling really surprised because i didnt know i had another hole down there, lol

when i was four the boy next door kept trying to make me touch his willy tho... he was also four, and he allways wanted me to take my dress off and stuff....was v.confused and freaked by this so i cant have known then. it worries me looking back now cos he must have been getting the ideas for that from somewhere. :(

I wasn't aware of the mechanics even after my twin brothers were born. My mum told me a story that when one of my cousins was born a year after my brothers, I was asking where the other baby was and was frantically looking everywhere for it ...awww
I do remember asking my dad though, and he said, daddy and mummy kiss and daddy gives mummy his seeds...and then a baby comes out of mummys tummy...
i dont know if i ever asked why i got two baby brothers at once...maybe daddy gave mummy too many of his seeds:eek:

i remember my little brother asking about sex, walking through the school car park after being picked up from school and going "Mammy whats SEX?"
Me mam replied with "when a man and a woman love eachother and sleep with eachother" - how vague can you get.
so little bro replies to that with "oh well me and cheryl have done that loads of times!"
Being a little pre-teen at the time i was horrified and took it upon myself to tell him it was ..."when a bloke stuk his willy in a lady's fanny" - pretty vague aswell i know

so that pretty much sorted out the problem, you could of imagined the conversations that would have been going through the school yard the next day

I remember being told that God put a baby in mummy's tummy that grew til it was old enough to be born. I also remember causing havoc at sunday school cos that explanation left dad's out of the whole process so what was so special about Mary having Jesus?

i remember honestly believing babies came from cabbage patches. till I was about 5 when all the older kids in teh street would tell us about sex n all the funny dirty details. but my mother never hid the truth . I remember looking at books when i was very small that explained sex and procreation etc. But otherwise cabbage patches.

When I was abouy 6 my brother told me that if you look in the microwave when somethings cooking then you'll get pregnant, I beleived him.

As I asked during the final rehearsal for the nativity play (I was the narrator cos I was good at reading, they said), I think they just said that I should ask me mum. Then mum got all upset when I asked her and she said something really lame I think without answering the question.

I never asked my parents where they came from, I learnt it in Elementary School when I was like 6-7. By the time sex education came around, everyone already knew what it was, so I didn't much see the point..

Here in Belgium of course the story of the stork goes as well..
but also some people say baby's are born out of cauliflowers:D
and if in a family one child looks a bit odd..
they jokingly say..is it from the postman??or milkman:harhar:

I used to think that the man put his willy in the girls belly button to have sex! Hahaha the shame!!!! I don't know how I found out the truth really. I think it was my old friend Tanya, who seemed to know these things.

Countryside kids seem a lot more clued up on what is what, remember my kids telling me all about it years ago now. Sure I was naieve for a few years, might of been my little sister who gave me the lowdown, then she's always been a bit forward in those matters. :)

When a man sits down on a chair and warms it up and then a woman sits down on it after him, nine months later a baby comes out of her-FACT

I didn't know until sex education at school
I asked before that but no one would tell me
I did think for a while that when a woman puts on her wedding ring, the body knows that she's married and so she magically gets pregnant. This theory was short lived when I met a girl who's parents weren't married.
