Any attestation meeting WT:ATTEST? The sole current definition: "A person who has a psychological fear of sexual relations or sexual intercourse". google books:"genophobe", google groups:"genophobe", genophobe at OneLook Dictionary Search. --Dan Polansky (talk) 19:09, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Added one cite. Mr. Granger (talk) 20:13, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
Added two more cites. Now there are three. Mr. Granger (talk) 19:43, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
That 1943 cite does not have enough context to determine the meaning of the word and I think it is likely that it refers to something else. --WikiTiki89 19:47, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
In the 1943 cite, the next sentence mentions the word "genophilic", glossing it as "philoprogenitive". It seems obvious to me that by this they mean "sex-loving", which suggests that their use of "genophobe" is for this sense. Mr. Granger (talk) 19:50, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Based on our entries for philoprogenitive and genophilia, it could just as easily mean "fear of one's offspring". Either way, that context should be added to our entry as part of the citation. --WikiTiki89 19:55, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I see what you mean. That does seem more likely. Mr. Granger (talk) 20:10, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
