Submission + - Love-Shyness As A Reason For Adult Virginity (wikipedia.org)

TalmerS writes: Many here have serious problems in the romantic arena and often chalk them up to poor social skills, Aspergers, etc. However, many shy geeks unknowingly suffer from a phobia of sex and romance called love-shyness), making obtaining a girlfriend (or boyfriend) seemingly impossible. Coined by Dr. B. G. Gilmartin in 1987, his book discussing his scientific study of adult virgins is freely downloadable(pdf). More recent London newspapers articles (1, 2, 3) discuss this problem.
