Does anyone else find the word "moist" unsettling? There is just something gross about it but I can put my finger on it.
When I was in college, I was friends/classmates with this one woman who had 3 other female roommates. They each had a word that they hated the sound of; hers was moist. What makes this stick out to me, is that the four words of these ladies made a phrase of sorts: moist, supple, c*nt, flesh. Could come up with appropriate reasons to use three of the words (supple leather, moist cake, flesh tones) but none of us guys said jack about the fourth.
Apropos of nothing.
I've seen or heard this comment/discussion about "moist" around a dozen times in my life. It started in college. I think it's something people hear someone else say, latch onto, and then parrot it without realizing it. It's prevalent in women. It makes them think of vaginas. I really don't understand the fascination with the discourse other than people who rant about that word seem to think it's an original discussion, even though they picked up on it from somewhere else.
But I learned a long time ago that there were two words that women really don't like. They don't like "moist" and they don't like when people (frequently) use "extremely" in conversation. Because that one sounds nerdy. Also bc of the creepy faces and intonation people have when using these two words.
