For me it is similar to when relatives, or people that I find very unattractive (I know... shallow) sneeze- I don't like it. I don't get angry, I just want it to not be. I try to ignore it, which depending on the situation may make me feel uncomfortable or rude/ uncaring. And then when there is blessings and worse, the prolonged talk... UGH!!
Anyway- the one thing that is different for me about children is that it generally seems to get more attention. How horrid am I that I don't bless my own kidlets So consequently they don't bless anyone .
At any rate, I know that for some people the feelings might be more conflcted, especially if the way that they experience the fetish is more based on sound (whereas if I see it, there has to be a Visually pleasing sight).
I agree with everything tma says (except the "I don't bless my own kidlets" bit, but if I did have kidlets I probably wouldn't bless them either most of the time).
My mum used to be a child-minder so I've been surrounded by kids with colds quite often. Once, she was busy with one of the kids while I kept an eye on a baby. She asked me to wipe the baby's nose. No fricking way. Eugh. I think I would have thrown up.
I don't care at all. I'm doing placement for my degree in a daycare centre right now and I frequently get sneezed on by young kids in fact xP The only thing I don't like is if another adult is present who blesses the child. I don't tend to bless children ever either, unless they're a young baby and I'm the only adult there xD
So yeah...I just ignore it... No problems with wiping up large quantities of goop from their noses either. Or vomit. Or poop. Or any other bodily fluid that comes from them xD Gotta love kids...<3
It annoys and disgusts me, about as much as family members sneezing does (sometimes even worse), but I only feel uncomfortable "fetish-wise" if there's someone else drawing attention to the sneezing kid - often a parent or other adult. It bothers me because kid sneezing doesn't do anything for me (other than sicks me out), but if people knew I had the fetish they might think it does. I don't know how to explain it any better than that.

Oh God I think I might be sick from reading that....

This exactly. In general, I'm basically indifferent when young children sneeze, since I can usually just ignore it. Everyone that knows me knows I'm no good with kids, so they probably wouldn't ask me to deal with it in any way. Hehe, being a prick has somehow helped me luck out and avoid uncomfortable situations.
However, if other people (aside from my parents, who already know) knew about my fetish, probably everyone's sneezes would bother me a little, especially young children. While I'm sure most of my friends would either not care or be understanding, there are more than a few people I can think of who would assume I get off to everyone, including babies, sneezing. It's like that assumption that a gay man is attracted to literally every other man that has ever lived. It's a generalization that people like to slap on things that they don't understand. I'd rather not get involved in that.
tl;dr: At the moment I don't really care either way, but if I was open about my fetish I'd be a little worried.
They kinda fall into the range of "family sneezes" - at best, I ignore them and don't care. And worst, I get irritated and want to not be around the kid. So I dunno if "uncomfortable" is the right word...I just plain don't like it. If I ever have kids, and they get sick, it'll be a double whammy. Family sneeze AND a kid sneeze...uck uck uck.
Oddly, it almost doesn't register for me when kids sneeze. Same as if they yawned or something. I suppose if I was paying attention it would sicken me a little, and has in the past, but no where NEAR as much as family members'. I'm basically the same as Kiwifruit.
It doesn't really have any effect on me, it doesn't bother me the way family sneezes do, but those don't bother me as much as they seem to bother everyone else. I definitely don't like them, I'm just kind of meh about them, I don't pay attention to them. I guess they don't register with me either.
it doesn't bother me at all. I find it cute when kids and babies sneeze. I do bless them. Its so cute when they bless me. :blushes: I have younger cousins who I waych often and they have allergies. And sneeze so I guess I grew into it in a way.
I do get uncomfortable, especially around the parents who are usually making a big fuss and looking at me as though I should, too! I reserve blessing for only one person, so if you want more than that out of me, tough luck.
I pretty much ignore it. It's sort of lumped into the clinical disinterest in unintentional exposure of sexual parts, like when I have to change one of my patient's diapers. They aren't exposing themselves for any sexual reason, so I'm neither disgusted nor turned on.
Being surrounded by kids for a living, I learned how to ignore it fast. However, when I come across sneezing kids on TV or on youtube, I can't get away fast enough. It's just uncomfortable and ick.
Totally. Most parents act like the baby just pronounced a complex word or something, and insist that everyone is noticing/impressed. I don't humor them; remain silent, maybe throw in a nod, and change the subject.
It doens't bother me. What DOES bother me is seeing it happen in fetish fiction. When I'm in my real life, I'm not necessarily percieving every sneeze as a sexual thing. When it comes from kids, it sounds completely different than when it comes from adults, which essentially neutralizes the sexual aspect of sneezing. This is different from say, my family doing it--they sound like adults, and therefore the sound is not too distinguishable from what I find sexy, which makes it gross and awful. I DO mind it in fetish fiction though, because it's clearly written with the fetish in mind. I have very rarely written about a child sneezing, but only in very short form...I couldn't bring myself to dwell on it.
I really don't mind, I have no problems with taking care of little kids when they're sick, it just annoys me a little when they're really whiny, but I hate it when my parents get sick. Ugh. Hate hate hate.
a shitty moment for me is I can recall a few times when I have heard a sneeze and found it attractive, and then turn to see the sneezer and find out it is a kid....then it is like ICKKK! and I ignore.
^Thiiiiis. Also, it's like my brain is telling me that thinking a child sneeze is attractive is wrong, but I still physically respond to it, whether I like it or not. It strikes me as disturbing, I guess, because it's almost as if the child is unintentionally engaging in a sexual act- which they're totally not, but the fetish makes it feel that way.
Bleh. I don't know. This is almost the one thing that puts me off being a mother. Seriously.
It doesn't really bother me. In fact, every once in awhile, a kid will sneeze where I think it's cute, not in a sexual way at all, just kind of adorable, ya know what I mean?
I notice them, and sometimes they can make me a little uncomfortable, depending on the situation. I have been sneezed on by little kids, helped them blow their nose and such, and while it doesn't freak me out or anything like that, saying that it doesn't bother me at all would be a big, fat lie. As a fetishist, I guess I'm sort of physically incapable of being neutral to sneeze-related things. *shrugs*
yup i def. do
I do know what you mean and still, it does nearly always make me a little uncomfortable as well. Especially when the sound is one that I might find attractive if it had come from an adult.
Still, parents making a big fuss is WAY worse than just a child sneezing. I especially loathe it when a small child sneezes and then its parent or another well-meaning adult intones "Atshoo!" at the kid. SERIOUSLY?!?! Whut de fuh!? I want to strangle people who do that!

You'll love my mum. She still does that nearly every time I sneeze in front of her... =_="
And usually I would say it's not uncomfortable at all for me when kids sneeze, but sometimes it is because sneezing in general can be awkward for me in real life. I usually ignore it, but it doesn't really bother me.
Kind of...but not really.
I never really notice kids sneezing except I like how they tend to be really uninhibited and sneeze openly, even if it's right in someone's face or whatever. They don't tend to cover or stifle, which I love.
One sneeze I loved once (without any weird feelings or anything of course, YUCK!!!) was this girl of about 7 maybe, who was walking along the street, and she was sneezing. She sneezed 3 times in a row, with the third one being a bit delayed compared to the other 2, and she didn't cover her face or anything, but sort of stopped walking momentarily for each sneeze. Her head went up and back and then jerked forward. The sneezes sounded really...good. But obviously she was a kid, so...yuck. lol
No, though I think it's understandable if people do. Because people sneeze so often sometimes you just get used to it and don't always have a reaction to it, at least that's how it is with me. It may be that my mind has just blocked it out at this point when it comes to kids. But when people bring it up and discuss it or it becomes prominent, then it feels kind of uncomfortable because I'm forced to think about it or respond to it. I guess it just depends.
