Moist’, at 77 per cent was – not surprisingly – the most unanimously loathed.
There’s even a Facebook group called ‘I Hate the Word Moist’ which boasts nearly 7,000 followers, and in a recent Mississippi State University poll, ‘moist’ was named as one the ugliest words in the English language.
In fact, the word is so despised that scientists have searched for a reason why.
Thibodeau and his fellow researchers initially believed that it was the hard ‘-oist’ sound that provoked disgusted reactions, but they noted in a 2014 study that participants did not have the same response to rhyming words such as ‘hoist’ or ‘foist’.
Experts found that participants especially hated the word when it followed vulgar sexual words, but were less disgusted when it came after food-related words, such as cake.
Coming closely behind, at 68 per cent, was ‘squirt’.
Once again, the researchers believe that this can be explained due to the fact that ‘squirting’ is slang for female ejaculation – a highly-searched term in porn videos.
Just over half of the women polled – 54 per cent – put ‘panties’ at the top of their list.
Dr Thibodeau believes ‘panties’ was seen as unpleasant because of the weird juxtaposition of the word’s two connotations: one with childhood, the other with – once again – eroticism.
Next on the list is ‘chunky’ – which is fine, the survey noted, when used as a descriptor for peanut butter – just not for people.
Respondents pointed out that unlike words like ‘curvy’ or ‘full-figured’, ‘chunky’ brings to mind a boxy shape rather than an hourglass.
For 40 per cent of women, ‘curd’ is a dirty word. Thiboudeau believes that this is because the word sounds similar to several ‘gross’ things including turd, crud, and curdle.
For the 22 per cent of people who listed ‘flap’ as a problem word, Thibodeau believes that two facts – similarity to the word ‘fap’ used among younger people to mean masturbation – and the medical memories that many associate with the term ‘skin flap’ – a phrase that is definitely not sexy.
“I wish she squirted when I OTPF’ed her moist panties but instead she leaked some chunky curd between her flap.“ That sentence nearly made me puke but almost certainly made a chicks head explode in disgust.
1.) Moist- Gross. Puke everywhere. it doubles because when you think of Moist, you think of the phrase…
2.) Panties- Moist panties. Panties the word on its own isnt that bad, Its about how you say it. “Quit getting ur panties in a bunch!” That doesn’t sound bad. “I want to take off your panties” If you say that out loud in a certain tone, you’re a rapist. As a guy I dont even want to hear it. Yea i want get your panties wet, at no point though we shouldnt have to say that they’re just “Moist.”
3.) Squirted– Are chicks just talking about squirting so much that they’re using it in daily conversation or something? I mean its a rare thing i think. I’ve seen pornos where the guy give a chick a two seam fast ball and she’s still not squirting so i don’t think its a thing that can happen with all chicks which leads me to think they don’t say it that often. Either way squirt isnt that bad of them.
4.) Chunky– This one isnt that bad. I mean to get to that point of disgust i guess you think of liek the most southern gross chucky chick naked i think. I feel like chunky guys look gross, but chunky girls look a lot grosser i think. I think chicks would agree with that. Im talking like Honey Boo Boo’s mom chunky. Thats pretty offensive i guess. Chunky peanut butter though aint bad.
5.) Curd– I mildly get it. I think of cheese curds which from my experience with poutine is good. Shits basically just cheese. But then if u think about the process of making cheese and then the word bacteria comes up and enzymes and shit and that just not a sexy word at all.
6.) Flap– Thats offensive. If you use the word flap and its not like flap your wings then its gross. I mean that opinion can’t just me mines and all these girls in the world. The reason being,and heres the kicker, i think of the term thats never and shouldn’t be used but “meat flaps” and you think of the grossest most used vaginas ever.
And thats really the common denominator with these 6 words. 4/6 DEFINITELY have to do with a girls pussy. Gross! you girls are disgusting with that thing between your legs!. ** PUKE EVERYWHERE**NO HOMO**
– The word Vagina is also gross, everything about it is gross. Nothing great about it unless a dick is between it. Not saying penises aren’t gross, I’m saying they should interact with each other cause if not you just have a gross thing between your legs.
