Synonyms: fears, feared, fearing

Expressive of her apprehension at losing contact for mutual climax; a caution in her fondling service, lest she go off on a snatch orgasm. The scare of not pleasing him, worse, of offending, frustrating him. A natural, normal female fear of possible conception seems never having bothered her, at least not greatly; this would indicate that at least her lover was never incautious in his use of contraceptive safe guards.
