This retail assistant from Exeter has phobia of a weird kind - he hates Kim Kardashian so much that just a look of a semi-naked Kardashian makes him vomit with aversion.
Amess, a gay, says he discovered about his disliking when he watched Kim's sex tape at the age of 17. The 24-year-old Amess said, "Just hearing the sound of the Kardashians' nasal voices or catching a glimpse of them on screen makes me feel nauseous and shaky. My hands get clammy, my breathing gets heavier and I start sweating. Sometimes, I get teary and want to retch."
He wanted to be aroused so he continued watching her. But the more he watched her, the more he got upset and by the end of the tape, he had tears in his eyes, was terrified and did not want to see her ever again.
Amess said, "Kim and her sisters look and sound so similar. They make my stomach churn, I hate it. I dislike everything about them, especially their physical appearance. I don't understand how anyone could find them attractive."
His disgust for the Kardashians also left a mark on his love life, he was forced to break up with a ex-boyfriend because of it. His last boyfriend watched all the shows of Kardashians and found them fascinating. This made them separate.
He says many gay communities love the Kardashians, making dating a difficult affair at times. He has been involved with many people who found them good and all these relationships ended badly.
