← Back to: List of phobias


Puellaphobia (from Latin puella meaning "girl") is the fear of girls. It is technically a branch of gynephobia, fear of women, since girls are practically women. This fear is often due to heredity or due to bad experiences involving girls, like getting injured accidentally by her. This phobia is commonly suffered by adult men, including gays. When encountering girls or even seeing girls on the photos or through media, symptoms could result, including heart palpations, sweating, breathlessness, anxiety, and dread. It is treated using for example exposure therapy, used to encounter gently and interact with girls under controlled conditions and doing it many times until the fear subsides. An alternative method is talk therapy, involving just a patient and a therapist to mention about girls and how they compare with others.
