The Phobia List

A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities, or persons. The main symptom of this disorder is the excessive, unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Thanks to the wonderful Phobia List, now I know about anuptaphobia (fear of staying single), coprophobia (fear of feces) and much more. Ah, the wonderful world of phobias. From The Phobia List:
Vaccinophobia- Fear of vaccination.
Venustraphobia- Fear of beautiful women.
Verbophobia- Fear of words.
Verminophobia- Fear of germs.
Vestiphobia- Fear of clothing.
Virginitiphobia- Fear of rape.
Vitricophobia- Fear of step-father.
