Nudophobia: The Fear of Nudity

Nudophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of nudity.  Nudity can make a person feel extremely vulnerable and for some this kind of vulnerability can make them feel very anxious.
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.
