The purpose of the present study was to examine the sensory and emotional meaning of sexual words, through the use of reduplication words. The reduplication were made by the pairing and combining of 110 Japanese monosyllables (e.g. momi-momi). Five hundred and sixty-nine reduplications were chosen from 12, 100, through the preliminay experiment, and fifty subjects were asked to evaluate these reduplications, by assigning them to different categories, (seven sensory, and six affective). The results showed that tactual, visual, and proprioceptive sensations were associated with and sexual words.
