Sounds in Conlangs

This is a question.

How many of your conlangs have any of the "Other
Symbols" in the IPA? It seems to me that they are both
rare in natlang and conlang, exepting the [w] [W]

Suchlike I have never seen a conlang with an [x\],
much less with anything epiglottal.

Why is this? Are these sounds considered aesthetically unpleasant?
