  • a 'fear of holes'

    coined in 2005

  • Does this mean there is also a condition called trypophilia? I think that the person selecting Words of the Day may suffer this affliction.

    Please tell me how trypophilia rolls:
    Is it fondness for tunnels of moles?
    If a cute vug provokes
    A yearning for dokes
    Does it mean you're a lover of holes?
