Daily Prompt: Vegetal

When the Daily Post Prompt is a word I rarely use, I tend to check it on a search engine.  This is what I came up with:

1. Of, relating to, or characteristic of plants.
2. Relating to growth rather than to sexual reproduction; vegetative.
3. Vegetal (wine), a descriptive term used in wine tasting.
4. Végétal, the second studio album by singer-songwriter Émilie Simon.
Of course I knew it was related to plants/vegetables, and I vaguely remember it in our sex education classes, back in the late 50′, early 60′.
I wonder how many older folks out there smile on how sex education was approached in those days.  Purely clinical. My parents never mentioned it, and when I was about to leave school at age 15, was asked if I had been told about the ‘birds and bees’ while at school.
How life has changed over the years.  Anyone else remember how they found out, or willing to share?


  1. Life certainly has changed, I remember having to hide a book on menstruation from my parents for fear of punishment. Ironically, I learned about sexuality from playboy magazines I found in there room and yes I was snooping.

  2. I live in India. We don’t get a sex education class here but when I was in 7th grade back in 2007, the boys of my class were taken to a hall and girls were taken to a different hall. We were wondering what’s all this about. A doctor from a reputed hospital had visited to talk about puberty and stuff. Boys and girls were addressed separately by male and female doctors.
