Genophobia (also known as coitophobia) is the fear of sexual intercourse. This phobia may be caused by actual sexual trauma (such as rape or molestation especially at an early age) or by witnessing a traumatic sexual act in real life or in the media. Some fear their own sexual drives threaten a sense of self-control. Others may simply find the idea of sexual activity to be horrifying or disgusting and shun it.

Not all instances of genophobia are irrational. Some women may have once experienced vaginismus which results in pain during sex. Even after treatment some demonstrate a reluctance to engage in intercourse.
