    Very Lost And Very Alone

    Before 2009, I was perfectly fine. If I saw something on television that had to do with sex or if somebody said a sexual innuendo, I would freak out a little bit, but I was able to brush it off and continue with my life. Now, that is impossible. I have been in a relationship (a...

    I am a female who believes

    that I might be Genophobic. I'm a very outgoing person. I'm friends with anyone and I can easily adapt to different people. I'm a peoples person. I like to have fun and going out with people but I've been noticing something about myself. When it comes to relationships and sex I...

    Am I? Maybe...

    Sometimes I wonder if I'm really gray-asexual, or just genophobic. I mean, I've always tried my hardest not to be that tight-assed virgin everybody hates. Much less the desperate type. I make sex jokes, they don't terrify me, eroticism doesn't terrify me, it's just... sexual...

    So Confused

    I've never really thought about sex past the 'ew too much information' kind of stage. Then the other girls in my class started doing things that in my opinion we are wayyyy too young to be doing - but each to their own i guess. What got me thinking I might be Genophobic or some...

    No Touching!

    I am Genophobic, (fear of sex) and severely so. At 25 years old I have never done anything remotely sexual with anyone! I can't! I start to seriously freak out. When I was 16 I dated a guy for a few months. (even though I didn't really want too. I also have Schizoid Personality...

    I Thought I Was Alone Until Now

    I am 25 and a virgin. I've never had a relationship that lasted more than a few weeks - in fact, I don't even think these qualify as relationships at all. I have been on lots of dates, but I distance myself before it gets too serious. I've been told that I am cold and uptight...

    I have posted my story here before,

    and it has been such a welcome gift to see understanding posts from people in my shoes. I feel so alone every day. I was wondering if any other genophobics would be fine contacting me via private message so I can discuss my issues? I'd really appreciate such an opportunity. I am...

    I might be the oldest one at 34,

    I see a lot of teens and some late 20s. Anyways I performed oral sex on a man about 18 years ago and haven't done anything else since then, no lie. Sometimes I think suicide is better then knowing you're going to live alone forever. I've yet to meet any men who want a woman...

    Depressed, Scared, Lonely Genophobic Teenage Girl...

    I have been Genophobic all of my life(from the moment I knew what sex was). I have never been raped or inappropriately touched before; nor have I ever witnessed a rape or ever experienced any other sort of trauma that would explain for my irrational fear that I have when I comes...

    I have never been molested or anything, but I have the EXTREME fear of being touched or molested- every time I see someone who may look suspicious I freak out., this is ruining my life. I had to have a feminine product removed at a hospital because I couldn't get it out, and a...

    I Never Really Thought About It Like This.

    I'm 21 years old. And I never thought about what was going on with me. I just thought I was a little weird. A little quirky. Just thought I needed the right guy you know? But now I realise that the right guy has passed me by on numerous occasions and I've somehow managed to screw...

    Hi i would rather not post a picture

    or a name because who knows who can find me. Anyways i read on an article that millions of people suffer from geno/erotophobia and while i search the results are so freaking few. Why people should call the people who don't have sex abnormal??? So having sex is an achievement or...

    It's Just Uncomfortable.

    I'm 26, i just hated to be touch by anyone. That include both family and friends. It feel extremely uncomfortable and it made me feel scared. Worst, i could hide my emotion very well, so no one can actually tell that i'm a genophobic. I guess things happened in the past made me...

    Finally, I Feel Just A Little Less Alone

    My whole life, I have had a fear of sex. For a long time, I never thought it  was a "phobia," just immensely disliked the idea and felt uncomfortable every time I had to confront it. But as I get older, you can imagine just how often I have to. It...

    Wow, So It's Not Just Me Then

    Hi, I'm a 27 year old man and I've never had sex. Its not that I don't want to, I actually really do, but like you guys it scares the living hell out of me. When I was younger, with my first few girlfriends at sort of 16-18 years old I put it down to nerves, but I literally...

    Ever since I learned about sex,

    I've always been strongly against it. And each year that passes by, I feel more and more abnormal, because I'm getting to that age where all of my friends have had sex and everyone around me expects me to be dating soon. I've never had any real trauma concerning sex, but the...

    It Terrifies Me.

    I hear the word "sex", and a pit grows in my chest. I don't know what it is about sex that scares me. Is it what they'll think of my body? Is it the awkward, uncomfortable first time? Is it that oral sex absolutely terrified me? I can't imagine ever having sex. I'll die a...

    I'm 20 and I'm getting married soon.

    But I'm genophobic. I'm terrified. I love a good makeout session but when it comes to the real thing, I'm a coward. Not just for the pain though. I obviously won't enjoy that part but it's more of the after effects. I've been cheated on a fair bit and my parents are the...
