The fear of having sex is called genophobia. It is a physical or psychological fear of sexual intercourse or sexual relations. The fear of sex can be quite overwhelming – causing intense panic-attack-like feelings just before a possible sexual encounter or sometimes by just thinking about it. If these feelings of fear and panic are not confronted and corrected, an unnatural fear of sex can lead to a life of loneliness and isolation.
The natural intimacy and joy that is experienced during sex is a necessary part of living a whole and happy life. While there is no specific treatment for the fear of sex, psychotherapy and hypnosis have been found to be of great help. Self Hypnosis by using professional audio recordings can be particularly helpful. That’s because the sessions are completely private and tailored to the specific issue. You may visit our Hypnosis Download page for details on a new audio program, “Overcome the Fear of Having Sex“. More on that later.
There can be many different reasons why people develop the fear of sex. Usually the main causes will be found to be from unusual sexual experiences or incidents of sexual assaults or abuse. Such incidents violate the victim’s trust and remove his/her sense of right to self-determination or choice. Fear of intercourse is often the result.
Another possible cause of genophobia (fear of having sex) is the feeling of intense shame for medical reasons or insecurities. A common example in males is thinking that ones penis is embarrassingly small or too large. A special Hypnosis Download is available to help with that – “Accepting Your Penis Size and Transform Your Self-confidence” .
Another common issue, shared by either gender, is that they can feel so “Shy About Being Naked” that they avoid or work around it altogether.
Some fear of sex can be attributed to either molestation, incest or deeply held insecurities.
The victims of child molestation can experience their feelings about the incidents later in life when they can fully comprehend and understand the importance of it. They may feel that their privacy has been invaded and that they were too young to agree to sexual acts. They may also feel like they were taken advantage of and betrayed by one that they trusted. Victims of child molestation can experience long-term psychological traumas. This pushes them to distrust and not to depend on others. The lack of reliance and trusting of other people in general can lead to an overall fear of sexual intercourse.
Victims of incest can also lose trust in other people.
They may feel that no one can be trusted because their family members took advantage of their innocence and naiveté. An attitude of, ‘if you can’t trust family – who can you trust?’, may prevail. Incest victims often experience little to no satisfaction sexually. Many will develop a serious fear of sexual contact with anyone. Some people develop a fear of having sex because of body image issues. In these cases men and women can become obsessively self-conscious of their bodies. This may be regarding the overall look of their body or it may be focused on one specific thing.
Women may become insecure if they dislike the appearance of their labia majora or labia minora. More common is Vaginismus, an involuntary contracting of the vaginal entrance. It can make love making painful and even impossible. The condition is easily treatable with self hypnosis (see Cure Vaginismus).
Another issue that’s related to the fear of sex is people who have Body Dysmorphic Disorder . People who have body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) think about their real or perceived flaws for hours each day. They can’t control their negative thoughts and don’t believe people who tell them that they look fine. Their thoughts may cause severe emotional distress and interfere with their daily functioning. With BDD, the fear of sex can be overwhelming because the belief leads to deep rooted insecurities.
