    There's also 'us', as in bogus/bogosity.
    Urban Dictionary: bogosity

    But I think we can see the type of endings that lend themselves to 'osity' nouns.

    The definition the OP uses comes from UrbanDictionary, so I would guess you're right about the meaning:
    Urban Dictionary: lamosity
