Nibbling on baby thighs is just the best thing ever!

This has to have something to do with my oral fixation around cute animals. I literally want to (and sometimes do) put them in my mouth. NOM.

I kiss my kittens on the nose all the time, but I dislike fur in my mouth. And for the record I hate babies and kids equally and don't want any, but I still feel the need to bite baby chub when I'm holding babies. It's Science bisque!

i always want to nibble on my cat's ears. when she was younger she had the most amazing smell, like warm, freshly ironed cotton sheets. i would have huffed her all day if she'd let me. now she smells kind of neutral, but i still feel a desperate need to kiss her little toes sometimes. i have never wanted any part of a human baby in or around my mouth, but at least my cat-lady brain is on point.

Kitten heads smell so yummy! I'm with you, I could sniff kitten heads all day.

I've never felt this urge, not even remotely. I wish this study had more info, percentages, male vs female, age, parent or not, etc. Curious.

From http://www.nouvelles.umontreal.ca/udem-news/news/20130923-why-do-you-want-to-eat-the-baby.html
Quote:
For their experiment, the researchers presented two groups of 15 women with the odours of others' newborns while the women were subjected to brain imaging tests. The first group was composed of women who had given birth 3-6 weeks prior to the experiment, and the other group consisted of women who had never given birth. All the women were non-smokers. The odours of the newborns were collected from their pyjamas two days after birth.

Quote:
It is also not known whether this reaction is specific to mothers, since men were not part of the experiment. “What we know now and what is new is that there is a neural response linked to the status of biological mother," he says.

Looks like a very small sample size, but still interesting. Though I'm wondering more whether that cake has doll parts attached to it or carefully sculpted icing or something.

I put baby ears and cat ears in my mouth all the time.

I'm not sure but they look like doll parts to me (which would mean no actual eating of said baby: quelle dommage!). I use that picture in a Powerpoint when I teach A Modest Proposal; it generally gets a few gasps/laughs!
