So I've found that several people I know, mostly women, all hate the word moist. Even saying it aloud in proper usage get's them irritated. Personally, I can't figure out why this word causes this reaction. I would like some answers or hypotheses.

I also apologize if this has been asked before. I'm a tid bit drunk at the moment and not fully capable of using the search function.

Context.... Context is why the word moist causes discomfort to some, and stupid grins with others....

I never thought twice about it until people started fussing. Now it's almost always used as some kind of sexual innuendo. I'd like to just be reminded of really delicious brownies, thanks.

I wonder if "wet" carries the same implications. o:

Eh, I have no problem with the word moist unless it's used in a sexually insulting way. Used in proper language, like 'The ground was moist from the rain' or 'The cake was nice and moist' doesn't get a reaction from me at all. Now, if you're using it in a sexual way, like in a joke or innuendo, but not in an insulting way, I'd probably just let it pass, respond, or even blush depending on the context and who it's directed towards. I'd only get mad or irritated if it was used in an insulting way. Don't ask me why people get mad over someone using that word, especially properly, because I have no idea why they would.

Maybe because then they think of a perfectly moist and puffy cake, but they know that they cant eat the cake

It's like when men hear the word "erect". I puts a sexualized image in their head that makes them uncomfortable.

Doesn't really bother me. I guess because the word sounds wet? Haha.
