    Feeding Frenzy

    This thread, or the name of the new blog? 9 pages in less than a day.

    Lucky we weren't asked about coffee - the reaction would have borked the internet.

    Or a whole blog.

    It could be called Kicking Ass and Taking Names or Losing the Thread or Dubbed or ...

    I really basically only have one schtick.

  • Richard Aston,

    Don't know if you are still reading this Russell but ...
    I have enjoyed the creativity coming through in this thread and wondered about other threads around words . I read this lovely quote from a 4 yr old, Billy
    "When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth."

    Got me to thinking about thinking of words that feel good in your mouth, word like Blancmange or Plop . Euphonious words ( actually euphonious feels quite nice) .

  • Grant McDougall,

    "The Munchies" or "Getting The Munchies" if no one's suggested one or the other so far (I haven't looked at the previous nine pages, sorry).

    <tangent>
    As far as I’m aware we don’t have a word for things that feel nice to touch. Why is that? “Tactile” is the closest I know, but that doesn’t really convey the feeling of something feeling nice. :-)

  • Islander,

    Swift check of the thesaurae didnt bring anything to light either Lilith...so we have to go to tactile analogies - 'as smooth, soft & warm as silk velvet'...interesting question. Will pursue it further-

    Kai Home (kai can mean food, to eat, consume,arrive at - as well as much else. 'home' (a nice false friend) is a variety of kumara...)

  • Stewart,

    I thought that 'plush' had a meaning not dissimilar to what you are after, Lilith.

    Mind you, it is only 1 type of 'feels nice to touch'; 'lubricious' makes me think of another.

  • Lilith __,

    All the words I can think of that we use to describe something that’s nice to touch work by analogy, like Islander says: silky, velvety, satiny…or plush. And we can say that something is soft or smooth or warm or cool or whatever but that describes what its properties are, not that we find it pleasant.

    We have so many words for things that taste nice (tasty, yummy, delicious, delectable, etc.) or look nice (beautiful, pretty, gorgeous, etc), some for things that sound nice (euphonious, musical*, dulcet) and smell nice (fragrant, aromatic, scented). But no equivalent words for the sense of touch, AFAIK.

    * musical, like melodious, is perhaps a kind of analogy too, now that I think about it. But it’s a lot less specific than silky.

    Jeebus! All 3 meanings I know...should not be associated with food!

  • Ian Dalziel,

    a nice touch...
    touché for the neuralmantics
    and somatime for sensualists
    Haptic happiness
    the wired hand
    in the velvet glove
    muscle sense
    and biofeedback
    kinaesthetes
    massage with
    a breath
    a whisper
    a tickle
    fondle
    and finger
    eyelashed
    and feathered
    all a quiver
    caressed
    and brushed
    scintillated
    tangibly
    stimulated
    there's the rub
    the hug
    the cuddle
    frottage
    the kiss
    the lick
    a shiver
    a pulsing
    first flush
    the heat
    a wave
    rippling
    to orgasm
    pheromones
    and furry moans
    aaah....
    sin till late
    skinship...

  • Islander,

    I know from my nurse sisters that 2 senses remain until you are dead – hearing, and touch.
    Much crap has been hurled at so-called touch-therapy, and some of it is deserved
    BUT – in family experience, just a late-coming person to a deathbed can call/sing/speak a name, and then hold a hand, and a comatose person will enliven enough to smile, grasp, sigh- respond enough to say, I am here, I recognise you-
