9 Weird Sexual Phobias

Pin it

If you thought vagina dentata was the biggest problem to worry about in bed, you are sadly wrong, my friend. There is a whole host of sexual phobias that could be lurking in your psyche. The general term is “erotophobia”: fear of all things related to sex. There are specific subdivisions to address various fears of kissing, shrinkage and even ladyparts. (And I’m not talking about ladyparts with teeth in them, either.) But just like those bedbugs you picked up from that hostel in Budapest, they can’t bother to you if you don’t get them in the first place!

Parthenophobia: Fear Of Virgins Or Young Girls

Parthenophobics have to avoid nunneries, 6th grade dances and Limited Too stores. [Anxiety Matters]

Medorthophobia: Fear Of Erect Penises

A medorthophobic would not last very long as a stripper. [Anxiety Matters]

Medomalacuphobia: Fear Of Erectile Dysfunction

Being a medomalacuphoic is the opposite of being a medorthophobic: medomalacuphoics are extremely anxious that they will lose their erection. [Anxiety Matters]

Gymnophobia: Fear Of Being Nude

Gymnophobics aren’t just “never nudes” like Tobias Funke on “Arrested Development; they’re also afraid of seeing other people in the nude. [Mahalo]

Eurotophobia: Fear Of Genitals, Especially Female Ones

You might think our entire Republican Party suffers from eurotophobia (and you might be right)! This guy is clearly hiding from a big ol’ vagina. [Fear Of Stuff]

Oneirogmophobia: Fear Of Wet Dreams

This is the best image I could find to encapsulate the concept “wet dreams.” Come on, she’s wet and you could have a dream about her. And if you are an oneirogmophobic and had a noctural emission from that dream, you’d be freaked out. [Anxiety Matters]

Malaxophobia: Fear Of Foreplay

Malaxophobics should probably just masturbate to get themselves off, lest they make all their sexual partners think they’re very selfish. [Anxiety Matters]

Philemaphobia: Fear Of Kissing

Philemaphobics are afraid of the intimacy that comes from kissing but also the other sexual acts that kissing might lead to. I would not be surprised if philemaphobics are also severe germaphobes, too. [Fear Of Stuff]

Sexual Claustrophobia: Fear Of Sex Indoors

Why is this sexual claustrophobic so scared? Because he can only have sex in his backyard, duh. Claustrophobics get anxious in enclosed spaces and sexual claustrophobics are afraid of having sex in an enclosed space. [Guyism]
