Dropping the bike will instantly cure your "Phallophbia."
The important thing I learned about making slow tight turns, fast sweepers, or U-turns, is scan for hazards or obstacles before you enter a turn then look through the turn to where you want to end up, not where you are currently. Your brain will put the bike where you are looking, every time. If I am fixated on the rocky ditch at the edge of the apex in a turn instead of the right-of-center of the road at the end of the turn, that is precisely where I will ride to: high-sided in the ditch. I have two crushed vertebrae for proof.
U-turns are the same. For instance in a left U-turn, look back over your left shoulder, not at the sandy edge, wall, or Ferrari parked at the opposite curb, because that is where you will end up. Concentrate on where you want the bike to be not on where you are headed. This technique flat works-even feet upon the boards, two up on a Harley Road King.
Think of a quarterback throwing a pass. The ball is thrown to where the receiver will be when it should be caught, not to where the receiver is when the ball is released.
