    Chomp, there is a page on that on a pretty well known website, but you really don't need to know that right now.

    Well, Venus was the Roman goddess of love (hence the term, venereal) and it may have something to do with lonely, heat-stroke-deranged, field-bound botanists "hallucinating" that Dionaea's trapping leaves resembled women's . . . um, er . . . naughty bits ("tipitiwitchets"); again, I can't help but wonder about the particular company they had been keeping . . .
