Cypridophobia: The Fear of Prostitutes and Venereal Disease


Cypridophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of prostitutes and/or venereal disease.  All prostitutes are viewed as carriers of venereal disease and are avoided at all costs.

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.

Do you suffer from Cypridophobia?  Please share your story.  How was it triggered and how does it affect your life?
