Is it possible to have phobis of sex, i don't have one i'm just curious to see if anyone does or thinks they might? I've heard of peole having a phobia of giving birth and you would think that might be linked.

Tokophobia (fear of giving birth) isn't really always linked to sex. However, of course it's possible to have a phobia of sex.

Yep. My best friend had a fear of sex, because she was a virgin and was terrified of sex being painful after being told awful stories of girls bleeding all over the bed and it being excruciating...but she had a lovely boyfriend who was willing to wait until she was ready. They had sex and she said it wasn't as bad as she thought at all, hurt a tiny bit but because he was so gentle and they loved each other very much...she got over her fear. So perhaps you just need to find the right guy, hippieglitter?

Unless it's a sudden fear of sex that's come over you even if you aren't a virgin?

I've seen a few posts on tsr, of girls who think the idea is repulsing, and disgusting, and could neer imagine themselves having sex, ever.

You can have a phobia of anything, all it takes is a negative association with the stimulus! I.e. Rape would perhaps cause a phobia as you would associate sex with this bad experience.

The idea of giving birth sends shivers up my spine and makes me feel ill, but I love sex, and am in no way phobic :p: so I don't think there's a link... (Certainly not in my case!)
