What Does It Take To Gross You Out?

I have seen a little theme running through blogland recently, and it has me curious. What does it take to gross you out totally?

I have seen some that hate anal...some who don't swallow....some who say that germs gross them out. Some who can't talk about bodily functions, some who are grossed out by baby poop. Some that just make me laugh. You know, nurses can talk about anything.....even while we are eating dinner and not get grossed out. Vomit...poop....blood....guts...gore...maggots....head lice....boogers.....anything.


What does it take to gross you out???????

Mine is mustard....I hate mustard. And if I even get it on my finger it almost gags me. Go figure.

Texture is what gets me. Put something slimy in my mouth and I'm a goner. That and tomato soup.

Curious....texture seems to get alot of people. Now that you mention it....I know someone who eats almost anything...but will not eat liver because of the texture!

Leave it to you Angel!! ROFLMAO!!!


I guess I am just a pretty disgusting individual to begin with... I just can't thnk of anything that grosses me out like that.....

As for the sexual gross outs.... again can't think of anything... I think I am pretty open minded and love exploring and experimenting... I have a pretty inquisitive mind and love to find out how things work.. feel... what have you.... maybe we should do some experimenting to find my limits?

angelofmercy5 replies on 4/24/2006 7:31 am:
Fantasy...don't ask me about the mustard! I've been that way since I was a little girl...and I can't think of any one thing that grossed me out about it. Who knows? And as far as sex goes...I'm willing to help you explore your limits...as long as it doesn't involve mustard! LOL

Hmmmmmmmmm........... I'd say LIVER. Not that I dislike the taste of liver, it's the idea of eating it. I don't eat the filter out of my furnace, why the hell would I eat LIVER?????? Can't think of anything else off the top of my head that grosses me out............

Oh yeah............ Chitlins. THAT'S gross.

Oh Yeah and mustard gets me too,,,can't stand to taste it,smell it,or even see it!!!

A lot of foreign food gets to me.
Take Mexican menudo (No, you take it! YUKKK!). They make it with tripe. Do you know what tripe is? It's intestines. YYYYYUUUUKKKKK!!!
Another "delicacy" is (I'm not sure of the spelling) "Baluts" (baloots?) from The Philippines. It's a chicken egg with the baby chick inside. (Say a prayer to the porcelain goddess!!!)
How about Korean Kim-shee? Rotten formented cabbage. Whew!!! I mean that cooked cabbage smells like old used farts already.....but rotten & formented? Whew-hoo-hooey! Vat a schmell, Abby!
But I think the championship goes to Honduras. They make some kind of a "blood cake" there that they all just love. YYYYYYUUUUUKKKKK! don't ask me the name of it....I don't even want to know....Wheweeee! I'm not sure that I want to kiss another Honduran after that.....well, maybe her pussy....just a little bit!

angelofmercy5 replies on 4/24/2006 1:44 pm:

I cannot stand the smell of LIVER in any form. If I am out dining and even get a whiff of cooking Liver, I am out of the place. It's not that I dislike liver, but I do get violently and physically ill when I smell it.
I can go up against a family of skunks with not ill effects but LOVER....NO WAY JOSE!!!!!

angelofmercy5 replies on 4/24/2006 1:50 pm:

4/24/2006 6:26 pm

Angel, there are really only a few things that I can't stand. After reading all the comments I am reassured to see that I'm not the only one. I hate liver, I hate brussels sprouts and I don't care much for creamed spinach.

Before you tell me that the liver is all in my head, let me tell you a story. My wife and I lived in Italy right after we were first married. There was a club that we loved to eat at on the NATO base in Naples. They had an entree that they advertised as "Mixed English Grill". It had steak, onions, peppers, mushrooms and liver. My wife loved the stuff, mostly because of the liver but I didn't have any use for it. One night she picked through most of the dish and then offered a few of the remaining pieces to me. I ate a couple of mushrooms, onions and peppers that were awesome and then a bite of steak was that was very good but the last bite turned out to be a piece of liver that had somehow escaped her attention. Well, it got my attention... I very nearly puked, literally. I gagged and spat the darn thing into my napkin. I didn't do it because I knew it was liver, I did it because it was NASTY! She hasn't tried to sneak it in on me again, and that's been more than 30 years.

I'm with you! Being a firefighter, it takes ALOT to gross me out and our "table conversations" at work would FREAK people out. You know what really bothers me???? I can see poop, puke, blood, gorked people dismemberment..what really tweaks me is "deformities" .. you know where everything is "intact" but someone's leg is on backward??? or foot... it just freaks me out. I'd rather see an amputated arm or decaptation than a "deformitiy" Oh! And I reallyhate anchovies!

I can't think of anything right this momentthat really *grosses* me out... although serious cigarette breath would have to be on a list if
I had a list...even at that...some smells I would prefer not to have to smell...or blahblahblah that I would prefer not to have to interact with ...and yet I can't really say that anything really *grosses* me out... hummmmm...maybe I was a nurse in another lifetime??? Maybe I'll give that one some thought...

Well, I can talk about anything, even during dinner. I never understood people who made faces or said things like now I've lost my appetite.
Particularly when I'm stuffy a nasty smelling dog poop can have me running for the bathroom; we have two dogs who. The smell of throw up could do it as well. Don't know about "poopy diapers". My step daughter was out of diapers when I married my wife.

HHMMM, ware to begin, I'm a bit of a dichotomy, I'm Worked in the Red Cross and have been a First Responder, So I have held people body part in their bodies in the rain in an upside down car before, ...perhaps we can chalk that one up to Adrenalin... you know perforated bowl in the abdomen smells like spoiled milk to me?... Any way. I can deal with almost anything icky, so long as I don't have to take part, Don't want funky smelling looking, feeling food, Clothes, Some folks their house. But the Biggest turn off is if I try to hook up with some one and they haven't seen to their hygiene! That gets a big no way! And so verbal abuse, I bottom with right person, but as I see it, you have my legs in the air riding me like there's no tomorrow, I think I pretty well know who's in charge right now, don't want someone calling worthless or something on top of it (get it on top.) any way I think thats my #1

Two things gross me out. The first is the smell of a dead animal that has baked in the AZ summer heat for three days. The second is the odor of an un-bathed homeless man during the winter. They wear as much clothes as possible to keep warm, but the clothes haven't been washed in years.

I remember being at a wharf getting a ferry in Scotland and the smell of the fish had me dry retching. That smell always makes me feel so sick!

And also milk! I always have to ask someone else to smell the milk to make sure it isn't off cos I don't even like the smell of milk when its only just been opened let alone been in the fridge for days. Yuck!

I don't know how nurses do it! Blood etc grosses me out so bad. The worst feeling I've ever had was when the nurse took out my catheter! Still makes me feel funny inside when I think about it and it was 10 years ago!
