Sexophobes are those suffering from sexophobia.

Sexophobia is the fear of sexual organs or of sexual activities, and, in a larger sense, the fear of sexuality in general. As such, the term can be applied to the attitudes of persons based on their educational background, personal experiences, or psychological state of mind, or to the general positions held by collective entities, such as religious groups, other institutions, or states.

To paraphrase H.L. Mencken (his definition of Puritanism: “the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.”)--sexophobes suffer from “the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be having an orgasm.”

Sexophobes often use terms such as "disgusting" or "despicable" when making reference to sexual activities of which they disapprove.

Sexophobic references are often found in news reports about "sex offenders," particularly so-called "pedophiles" (who more often than not are actually pederasts.
