Kolpophobia: The Fear of Genitals

Kolpophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of genitals, especially female genitals.  Those who suffer from this phobia fear seeing or even thinking about genitals.  This phobia is closely related to Eurotophobia, the fear of female genitalia.
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.
