Fear of Sex Sometimes Accompanies Chronic Illness

The fear of  having sexual relations is called genophobia. It's a physical or psychological fear of having sexual intercourse or any type of sexual relations. The fear of sexual relations can take a psychological toll on an individual – causing strong 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 help.  Self hypnosis by way of using a professional audio recording can be particularly helpful. That’s because the sessions are completely private and tailored to the specific issue. You may want to visit the 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 prior sexual experience 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.

 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.

Most fear of sex can be attributed to either molestation, incest or deeply held insecurities. Chronic illnesses , while not necessarily the root cause, can often exasperate the issue because of the psychological component that usually accompanies the ailment. In particular, myasthenia gravis, and multiple sclerosis patients can quickly slip into a 'brain fog' that may be accompanied by confusing thoughts and 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. Men may develop a fear of having sex if they suffer from erectile dysfunction (Hypnosis Treatment Available). Others who grapple with gender identity disorder can also develop a fear of sex.

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.

In a similar fashion, feeling self conscious about any chronic disorder can manifest the same negative thoughts. For the myasthenic individual the beginning of a sexual encounter can begin naturally but quickly turn awkward with the least bit of stress during the act. One experience like that could lead to a hesitant attitude for fear of a recurrence.
