List 26: Schaumburg and other unsexy words

Below is a list of some of the least sexy words I know. I avoided words that are unsexy because they refer to gross things. Instead, I focused on the sounds. These words don’t sound sexy.  (They lack aural sex?) “Pulchritude” actually means physical attractiveness, but it made the list because to say it sounds like you are vomiting in your mouth. And, yes, Schaumburg is on the list. I’m sorry, people of Schaumburg, but it is impossible to say your hometown in a sexy way.

I couldn’t even begin to rank these, so here are 40 unsexy words in alphabetic order:

  1. Amazeballs
