Word 'em up

You know how there are certain words that gross you out? Particular words that spawn a distinct twinge of mash and/or squeamishness when uttered?

I'd like to share a few of my most shuddery words. I think, for many of them, you'll concur:
  • moist
  • ointment
  • supple
  • pudding
  • tender
  • lover (in conversational use, not in the case of the musical smash hit, "Easy Lover")
  • juicy
  • creamy
  • yoghurt (when spelled with an "h")
  • crust (except when referring to pizza)
Are you sufficiently grossed out? Feel free to add your own dirty words in the comments.

I'd add:

smegma
synergy (think business terms not jem's computer helper)
pew (as in church seat)
tight (as in awesome, a la shannon b)
mucus
clogged
squirt
