In country star Loretta Lynn's delightful memoir, "Still Woman Enough," she discloses that she didn't know that having babies was caused by having sex until after she was married and pregnant.

We hear you, Loretta. After a recent informal survey around the office, we found out that we had some pretty wacky sexual misconceptions growing up. So we asked our friends, co-workers, and Twitter buddies to tell us their most wrong-headed notions about "makin' time."

Below, check out our roundup of childhood sexual misconceptions, helpfully ranked on a scale of Sexual Confusion. And thank your lucky stars for public school and HBO, because if we hadn't eventually learned about sex, we'd all be pregnant, in prison, or incredibly frustrated by the search for the elusive navel G-spot.
