As noisy as the harsh abrasive buzz of a hair getting caught in my fan.

particular types of glossy paper. the kind of glossy that sort of squeaks a bit when you run your finger along it. slippery smooth glossy i don't mind.
styrofoam
dry/dusty things. especially drywall and chalk.
glassware that has been washed in a dishwasher.
wool
rubberbands
skin moisturizer
particular types of plastic shopping bags
anything sticky.

That's just tactile stuff. The list expands if food is entered into the equation. I should mention that I have a coping ritual associated with uncomfortable texture. In most cases if I touch something included in the above list, I have to immediately wash my hands to erase the uncomfortable feeling.

Any prickly, scratchy fabric--wool, starched shirts, etc... Also, I dislike cool, smooth, satin-y textures on my skin, such as the lining in a suit jacket. In terms of clothing, it's basically cotton and only cotton for me.

The sound of two paper towels rubbing together can make me cringe; so can the sound of a knife running across tin foil. Strands of hair sticking to my hands when they're wet gives me the creeps for some reason.

I cringe at the thought of two wet popsicle sticks being rubbed together.

I hate most fabrics that aren't cotton or soft denim; I too have a problem with heavily dyed, stiff denim, it scratches and pricks until I wash it several times. I hate polyester, and shirts with the logos sewn on from the inside, they scratch like crazy. Bra shopping is absolutely impossible. I have a total of two bras that I find tolerable, and I'm getting nervous because they're starting to get old and holey, and I have yet to find a replacement that doesn't drive me crazy. Sometimes I just don't bother with them. I also really hate socks that don't come up past my ankle and I'll go without socks rather than wear them. I can't wear trousers with bare feet either as the hem always tickles and brushes lightly in a way that makes me want to scream. Clothes shopping is a ridiculously tremendous ordeal, and I'd just as soon not bother with the nonsense.

Low-cut socks drive me crazy. Can't stand em.

I dislike pants that touch my feet as well. Equally annoying are shirt sleeves that extend beyond my wrist and come in contact with my hands.

Wool. The time last I wore wool, my feet looked like they'd been burnt. :(

Newsprint makes me fell like my hands are full of tiny splinters. And I can't stand touching raw meat. I feel dizzy when making hamburgers.

Shower drains get full of this goop formed by rotten soap scum and hair, that stuff makes me want to puke.

With you there:corduroy (as I spell it) especially...gives me chills. Unfortunately I like the look of velvet and suede,so I put up with them. After all, if I'm inside them I will be touching them less.

Same here. Conversely I love certain dry, crisp paper textures,like those you find on some posters and I go out of my way to find and use them at work. I love the sound and sensation when I cut them with a scissors. In fact,when I see somebody in a movie cutting paper with a scissors, I always find it pleasurable and sensual.
I like soggy cereal, though. I leave the milk on it for an hour to get the right degree of sticky,clogged sogginess.
I hate slimy things.Slugs creep me out. But cat's fur-I love it.

Cotton balls, facial tissues, and wool. I really dislike the feeling of them rubbing on themselves in my hands.

I don't like anything sticky on my skin. As a child my mother called me "Sticky Vicky" because I couldn't abide with anything sticky on my hands and she'd have to get me a wet washcloth immediately so I could methodically wipe my hands, including between all my fingers.

I also don't like tags on my clothing or shirt collars that are too close to my neck.

I don't like low cut socks either. They need to be above my ankle or I'll go without. I moved to Florida 3 years ago so I mostly wear flip-flops now, but they have to fit me just right or the part between the toes drive me crazy.

Oh, and issues with fingernails: I keep my nails very short and I hate the feeling of nail polish.

Really greasy wood is horrible. Fingernails on paper... not sure if feeling or sound.

Textures to me is completely different. Smooth textures are boring to me. I feel nothing when I touch something smooth. The texture of a chipped finger/toe-nail excites me. I keep rubbing it. Same with the cuticle of my right thumb. Not the left, just the right! Textures that have a pleasant feeling to them, like the skin of citrus. The bumps excite my brain. Rough textures though, not so much - like a 'textured' concrete. It is very harsh and sharp. Just ask my knee as I went for a flying leap a week ago & tore it up. Unfortunately, I loose my balance often & sometimes fall.

Mushy fruit. Bananas are the worst, then too ripe pears and so on.
