Ithyphallophobia: The Fear of Seeing, Thinking About or Having an Erect Penis

Big Black Penis: Misadventures in Race and MasculinityIthyphallophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of seeing, thinking about or having an erect penis.  I can think of few ways this one can be triggered, but I was unable to find any information on it and I’m not going to speculate.  If you or someone you know has this phobia please share what you know about it.

A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
