Do you have any unusual phobias, obsessions, compulsions, fetishes....?

I was just reading an article about this in readers digest. Mine would be picking at my blemishes. I knew, EW. I hate that I do it. My face, the back of my arms, thighs.... Especially arms. I wish I would STOP!

Oh, and when I'm bored I pluck the hairs out of my fingers and sometimes knees (if I have stubble). But that's not an obsession, just boredom.

  • I have dentophoobia.. common I think. I have a fear that a spider will lay eggs in my ears while i'm sleeping... I sleep with ear muffs on, tight! Other penis's besides dh's scare me LOL. I know it sounds wierd but the last time I saw a penis in real life that was not dh's was when my cuz and I went to a club and some guy decided his drunk behind was gonna strip down and dance until security carried him out. When I looked at his peter I was filled his fear. Every penis on this planet is disease ridden and I have nightmares that they chase me down and spit diseases at me.

    I'm wierd I know.

  • Yep! I'm a weird one! The volume on the TV, radio, CD Player, Bose Speaker, etc...all have to be on an even number!!! I can't STAND it if it's left on an odd number!

  • I have a few... I always have to sleep closest to the door. My SO thinks it is creepy but its been like that since I was little.... Also my obsessiveness only goes towards the dishes and my closet. I have to wash the dishes in the sink before I put them in the dishwasher to wash them again... everyone thinks its crazy but for some reason I have to.... the other is in my closet all the hangers have to white and all hung in order, my SO's stuff on the left side, all my shirts organized from longest sleeves to shortest, then dresses, then skirts. My SO usually laughs at me for all of the above and calls me OCD. Oh well right :) Oh and the clown movie was Stephen King's move "IT".

  • I'm very uncomfortable around clowns too. Not a too uncommon thing. I'm also afraid of birds, like the ones you see at a pet store,but I'm okay with wild birds~robins, cardinals, that kind of thing.
