What are the sexual phobias
here is such a thing as sexual fears that can poison the intimate life of partners and interfere with the realization of basic sexual desires. Let’s consider some options for the causes of such phobias, and how to cope with a dangerous mental problem.
Sexual phobias are a mental condition in which obsessive, unreasonable feelings of fear appear associated with sexual problems. This state is expressed by a very high mental and emotional stress, often leading to a defensive reaction. A person can come up with a wide variety of excuses to avoid sexual intercourse. Such fears can lead to a complete rejection of sexual contact.
The main cause of sex phobias is aggression from partners or even sexual perversion (various manifestations of sadism). Such aggressive, non-generally accepted actions about sex can cause various types of phobias in a sexual partner with normal views on intimate relationships. These fears will become a kind of defensive reaction to unhealthy sexual relationships in a couple.
