Othello tells Desdemona "This hand is moist my lady" (3.4.28)
What is he suggesting with this statement?
Her hand is young and untarnished.
She has been promiscuous.
She has just washed her hands after holding Cassio's hand.
She is sweating because she is nervous.
Her hand is "dead" just like her soul.
