Venustraphobia: The Fear of Beautiful Women


Imagine trying to talk to a beautiful woman and you feel your heart begin to race, you get sweaty and you can’t think straight. If this has happened to you then you may have Venustraphobia.

Venustraphobia is the fear of beautiful women. Basically those who have this phobia find it impossible to talk to beautiful women. Their anxiety levels increase dramatically and they are physically and mentally incapable of initiating or sustaining a conversation with this woman.

One possible cause of Venustraphobia is negative experiences with women in the past. If you get turned down over and over, it’s only a matter of time before you begin to fear approaching another woman. This may increase the second possible cause of Venustraphobia which is a negative self-image. If you don’t feel good about yourself then approaching someone that you feel is out of your league is impossible to do.

If you suffer from this phobia please share your experiences. Not only will it help you to talk about, but it will also help the world to understand that phobias like these are real.
