With the exception of one person we’re all afraid of something. Some of us however, whether due to a traumatic experience or just bad luck, have fears that could be classified as being a bit more irrational. Although some of the phobias on this list are just pop culture jokes (we’ll let you know which ones), for the most part they’re not. These are the 25 strangest phobias you could have.

Heliophobia

In a sort of modern day vampirism, heliophobia is actually defined as fear of the sun. Although it sounds harmless, it can actually be quite serious and lead to vitamin D deficiency as a result of staying indoors.

19

Chaetophobia

19

Although some people with chaetophobia only fear loose or detached hair, others can be terrified by the hairs on their very own bodies.

18

Arachibutyrophobia

18

Although you’ve probably heard this one thrown around, the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth is actually a made up phobia. It was first mentioned in the Peanuts comic strip and pop culture has run with it ever since.

17

Haphephobia

17

Whatever you do just make sure you don’t get too close to anyone with haphephobia…it’s the fear of being touched.

16

Oikophobia

16

Imagine being scared of your toaster…and your oven, and your refrigerator, and every other household appliance you own. For people with oikophobia, c’est la vie.
