We are Sternutaphiles
« on: November 18, 2021, 04:58:06 AM »
So, sternutaphobia is the fear of sneezing, so then would attraction to sneezing be sternutaphilia? Apparently someone asked a long time back on the old blue forum. Someone else said that maybe "ptaerophilia" would be more appropriate. Still, it was funny to find something that Google yielded zero search results on.

That's interesting, @Furry-Sneezes, I tried to find expressions like that in German as well, which would be almost the same, just with an e instead of an a (Sternutaphilie, Ptaerophilie, Ptarmophilie), but - nothing. However, since language keeps changing all the time, I wouldn't be surprised at all if "sternutaphilia" turned out to be the "official" word for what we are some day.  ;)

From what I've read in the past, I believe the "official" term for a sneeze fetish is "mucophilia". At least it returns the most Google search results, lol.

I mean, I kinda like the terms you guys presented better. In my mind, "Muco" kind of sounds like a fixation particularly with mucus. But still :P

I agree, wouldn't that be more 'snot loving'? Doesn't seem right. XD I wonder how much different the web would be if we had gotten a few more years of independence from big companies and commercialism. I feel that ways of thinking such as this are such a niche thing that we can't manage to congregate to dwell on these things any more. :P

Well, "mucophilia" doesn't apply to me because, as crazy as I am about sneezing, I can't handle snot. So I'll prefer sternutophilia.  :)
