Research proves that 60 per cent of women fake an orgasm during intercourse. Which clearly proves that if you are scared of having sex, then you are not the only one.
And not just women, many men too (as against the popular misconception) can fear sex. But what are the different kinds of sex-related phobias that people have? We explore...
Erotophobia - fear of everything related to sex
Coitophobia - fear of sexual intercourse
Anuptaphobia - fear of staying single
Heterophobia or sexophobia - fear of the opposite sex. This, coupled with Anuptaphobia could actually have disastrous effects.
Gymnophobia - fear of nudity
Menophobia - fear of menstruation (nothing irrational about this fear once you think of it).
Parthenophobia - fear of virgins and young girls (men can fear sex too!)
Oneirogmophobia - fear of wet dreams
Eurotophobia or kolopophobia - fear of female sex organs
Haptophobia - fear of being touched
Ithyphallophobia - fear of erections
Medomalacuphobia - fear of going limp and losing erections
Tocophobia - fear of pregnancy and childbirth
Scopophobia - fear of being looked at
Spot your phobia and get a cure for it. Just remember, it's all in the mind.
