venereal

Pertaining to love. The term is seldom, if ever, used in its strict sense and has come to be indissolubly associated with disease spread during coitus. Today, however, even in this context the word has a very old-fashioned, even archaic, ring and has been almost universally replaced by the less emotive ‘sexually-transmitted’. From the Latin Venus , the Roman goddess of love.
