← Back to: List of phobias


Philemaphobia or philematophobia (from Greek philema, "kissing") is the fear of kissing. Sufferers would avoid kissing someone and getting kissed by them, because they don't want to get germs onto them or smelling their bad breath. Because kissing is a common taunt of romance, philemaphobia is related or even linked to sarmassophobia (fear of love play).
