QotD: Makin' Babies

Who was the first person to give you info — correct or not — on how to “make babies”?
Submitted by Manon-It-All.

When I was about seven, I asked my cousin (who is about 3-4 years older than I am at most) where babies came from. I figured that she would tell me because I thought she was very smart. She got around it by telling me that “it was really gross, and involves sperm and stuff”. That’s pretty much all I knew until I took sex education a few years later.

This same cousin also use to amaze my sister and I by opening and closing her family’s garage door by magic. They had an automatic opener and she would press the button by the door when we weren’t looking. She only admitted it to me a few years ago. We thought she was magic.

Looking back, I was a pretty naive little kid.
