Personally I find trash talk irritating and sometimes offensive. The match is the match. If you win it won't be because you trash talked. But to those who get off on it - whatever floats your boat
(In reply to this)
Yep. It can be both those things but its not so much a "turn on" more a way of unlocking a different aggressive part of yourself.
I know you don't like it, so don't do it. I just push my luck by being cheeky lol (Maths is a language )
Did they not do it in WoS?
I admire George Hackenschmitt. So powerful but always a gentleman
And off to Google
It's a weird thing Trash Talk.
It gets the blood pumping and adds a spice and fills the time, and with the right guy it can be awesome.
Trouble is the more I do, it becomes a default response (even in my real life) and can sometimes come across as arrogant and cocky with guys who aren't that in to it. Which leads me to feel bad as I'm not that arrogant ; ) Most of the time
I can never quite find that line till I occasionally cross it, and trading insults can sometimes lead you unwittingly to step on someone's else's landmine. Which is awful.
I wonder if anyone has any suggestions or rules that I can apply?
I can't help being cheeky, it's my nature ... and if someone wants to exchange trash, I'm more than up for that. It's just spotting whose up for it before a match and who isn't.
Not really a suggestion, but a wondering aloud whether esoteric interest things like "pool wrestling" could have trash/verbal as company?
