This is a question What nonsense did you believe in as a kid?

Ever thought that you could get flushed down the loo? That girls wee out their bottoms? Or that bumming means two men rubbing their bums together? Tell us about your childhood misconceptions. Thanks to Joefish for the suggestion.

The word "wank"
...was a euphemism for having sex, only used in opera. I believed that one for years.

I thought this too!
I imagined 'wanking' to be particularly flamboyant sex which involved the participants swinging from side to side, as you'd move if you stood with your legs apart and then rocked from one foot to the other. This image was planted in my mind from a Smith and Jones sketch, in which an overly-jolly advertising jingle went "Wanky wanky wanky wank / Join the National Friendly Bank".

I took "wank" to be interchangeable with "fuck",
but only let this slip when describing how, theoretically at least, a hermaphrodite could wank themselves. Given the subject matter, this allowed for a swift, graceful recovery, and no one was any the wiser.
