titillate +‎ -ive


  • In this game of sticks and stones and titillative politics, the real terror is the game itself -- the camouflage that we, the American public, allow our politicians, our corporations, and ourselves to hide under, and not just during campaign season.

    Crystal Syben Haidl: Fondling Democracy

  • The titillative rake or the peremptory hoe does not help you much in their discovery; for their color is that of the soil, their size as various as that of bits of gravel, and they are not easily perceptible to a cursory glance from the ordinary height of the eye.

    Lippincott's Magazine, Vol. 22, August, 1878
