can people control the volume of their sneeze?

I have also noticed that man in their 50s and 60s sneeze much louder on average then guys in their 20s and 30s.

It's always a mystery why people like this are not pereturbed by the sound they make.........although I doubt stifling would be a good idea in their case.

sometimes, if its a really quiet place/time (like an exam) i just have to let a loud one go...

However, when I induce using the tissue method, I CANNOT stifle to save my life. I've tried, but those are just way too powerful. Anyone else have this going on?

Callmecrazy, in my case too inducing produces the most unstoppable sneezes, and also louder than the natural ones.
And yes, it is obvious that the volume of a man's sneeze (don't know about women) rises with age. I wonder why is that?

Not that it really matters as mine are usually singles, and are very rare, but still, I can't.
I had one friend who sneezed so loud it would scare the crap out of everyone in the room. It was weird.
She said she couldn't control it.
