Venery has two unrelated meanings, both from Latin:
- A historical term for hunting game, see medieval hunting (from venerie in Middle English and Middle French: "hunting", from Latin vēnor: "I hunt".)
- the hunted animal itself, see game (food)
- The practice or pursuit of sexual pleasure, or the indulgence of sexual desire, see human sexuality (from the Mediaeval Latin veneria, from the name of Venus, genitive Veneris)
- especially, in references to sexually transmitted diseases ("venereal disease").
