With you all the way - raw fish is definitely an acquired taste (and one that I'm never going to have). Slimy, fishy, cold... Just not right... Doesn't matter how much you cover it with spices or other additives.
I was also put off when I was warned by a doctor friend of the real risk of picking up parasites from uncooked fish. He showed me (in confidence) some photos of a recent victim (contracted parasitic worms eating raw fish while overseas) and it wasn't pretty.
When there are so many far, far better options, go with cooked - steamed, fried, baked, braised...
