Hi everyone, I hope you are all OK.

For as long as I can remember, I have absolutely hated sticky foods, such as anything sweet that drips, as I hate the feeling of it getting on my hands and around my mouth.

It is so bad, that even watching these foods on the TV or seeing them make me feel a bit iffy. If I do get my hands sticky, I have to immediately wash them, and if I got something sticky on my shirt, I will have to immediately change it.

So, does anyone else here experience this, or is that just a quirk of me? I wondered if it was in anyway linked to aspergers.

Thanks, Conan.

Yes, definitely. It makes me feel gross to have sticky hands.

I don't think many adults like having sticky hands.

I've always hated it. Won't eat some foods because of it.

Though it never stopped me from putting white glue on my fingers and letting it dry when I was young.

Yes! I sometimes get up several times during a meal to wash my hands. When I get really stressed I can't stand the thought of eating anything like a sandwich or fruit that has to be picked up.

Yes, sticky is a problem with me. The worst is raw egg sticky. If I want any other form than hard boiled, I use either powdered eggs, or liquid eggs from a carton, just so I won't get sticky egg goo on my hands. I really hate that. The downside is that I do really like well done scrambled eggs with other stuff added to it, but don't get to have it much, as I don't often by liquid eggs, and I want to save my powdered eggs for an emergency, so I don't often open a new canister of it, as it lasts longer if you don't open it.

Another thing I hate is the feel of soap on my hands. I don't mind washing with it, but I spend a lot of time rinsing it off thoroughly, as I don't want to feel any traces of it once I am done washing my hands.

I think I am the same way about all slimy, sticky, and gooey stuff.

Don't know why the "EEW" smiley wouldn't load at the end of the last sentence. Oh well.

I hate sticky or dirty hands. I work in maintenance and find myself washing my hands several times before I'm done with a project sometimes. Doing plumbing, forget it. I use like 10 pairs of gloves to do a single project sometimes.

Yes, having my hands/fingers sticky, dirty or oily without the assurance that I have access to cleaning them off with soap and water is one of my biggest irritations. Cannot stand it.

I absolutely hate it D: It's the main reason why I hate hot weather. Yuck! I've always had this problem, even as a baby. But, I don't think it's related to having Aspergers. It runs in my family. My father has the same issue, and he has no AS to speak of. My sister, however, is fine with stickiness and she DOES. My nephew also hates feeling sticky. Not sure if he has it, yet. His father doesn't.
Looking at sticky food that is meant to entice appetite only repulses me. Ugh >_< My skin is prickling.

I always hate feeling sticky, when I get that way, I need to wash my hands or take a shower right away, or else I get really uncomfortable.

I *hate* sticky stuff. Generally I hate having food get on my hands and face. I always wash my hands and face after meals.

Also for me personally, Polish with silicone, after handling things sprayed
