← Back to: List of phobias


(intense farting noises) Poop or flatuphobia (from flatus, Latin for "blowing") is the fear of farting, whether farting oneself or somebody farting. The common fear trigger is being blamed or the unpleasant smell came from farting or even sound of farting. If the sufferer smells the flatulence or even hear someone farts, they may panic and flee from the people who farted. Mild sufferers would stay away people who fart often while severe sufferers would stay away from anybody, often resulting in the feeling of depression due to lack of personal contact, but they can still contact people via phone or social network. Sufferers would try to avoid farting themselves.

Flatulophobia is often treated using hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and exposure therapy, as well as talking about flatulence facts.
