10 Strange Weird And Funny Phobias. People Are Afraid Of Random Things.

Updated on October 15, 2017


Ablutophobia,that's the fear of washing or bathing. Yup, I had ablutophobia when I was a young boy. I'm pretty sure most kids had this phobia when they were young.Matter of fact, I can think of a few adults I know that have this still, to this day! Take a bath dude, please. Just take a bath!


Defecaloesiophobia, it's very strange. Can you guess what it is?

If you guessed "the fear of taking painful bowel movements", you'd be right! LOL This one is way out there. How many painful bowel movements must you make before you have a fear of them? And how does this fear become so strong that is known as a phobia? Stop eating so much dairy and drinking all that alcohol. Stack up on products that are high in fiber and you should be able to steer clear of Defecaloesiophobia.


They're cute, they're cuddly they even hold hands while sleeping. ( see ) Yup, you guessed it! It's the fear of otters. This fear came from a German guy way back in the day who fell into an Otter infested river while wearing a fish, shrimp and baby turtle suit. The otters had been starved because of rising pH levels that in turn killed all the fishies. I made all that up but seriously, look at them! How they hell can you fear that cute lil' thing?


For all those Viagra users out there. This one's for you! Medomalacuphobia is the fear of losing an erection :O Who? Me? No! I don't have this fear, seriously dude, I don't. This is probably the most prominent among men between the ages of 16 and 99. Cialis, Viagra, or one million other drugs can cure this for you. So, don't freak out, limpy.


The fear of tweekers? .....Nope, it's the fear of alcohol. I can tell you 100% that I TOTALLY have this fear. One night I got so scared of alcohol that I proceeded to the liquor store and bought all the alcohol I could and then I went home and drank it....ALL OF IT. So it couldn't hurt anyone else. Yes, I'm a caring guy. You can thank me later.


They're everywhere! OMG, look out! The fluffiness and precipitation will doom us all! If you got nephophobia that means you're scared of clouds. WTF!?! Clouds, really? Unless you're Mario this fear seems to ridiculous to be true. Like, seriously. Damn that spikey shelled turtle throwing flying cloud, though. I hated those damn levels. Especially when you are small. You kill the cloud and it just keeps coming back! What? You have know idea what I'm talking about? Go play Mario.


The lint will doom us all!!! Omphalophobia- Fear of belly buttons. Is it an inny our an outty? To tell you the truth, I believe this phobia. Some people have some nasty gunk in their belly buttons. Plus, I wanted a reason to post a picture of that ridiculous tattoo. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.


The fear of taking tests. I wish my doctor had diagnosed me with this in school. "Sorry, teacher. I can't take tests. I have a medical disease. Testophobia." One problem, how would you ever get a driver's license? Also, TESTO...phobia. It sounds more like the fear of something else. O.O


The fear of the great mole rat. Makes sense to me, those thing are hideous!! Not much I can say about this one...look at those damn things! They're like a mix between a vampire, a rat, a mole and......Tom Cruise. Ha Ha Ha.


In Russia...bla bla bla. This is the fear of Russians. Come on, they gave us Tetris! The only thing I fear is having to listen to one of only three songs for hours on end. Wow, should I pick Music-1, Music-2, or Music-3? But seriously, the fear probably comes from the strange language, weird clothes, and the uni-brows.....and Zangief from Street Fighter.
