Sexual arousal from Amputation (Acrotomphilia) .

From @medicalphy:

🏨"Acrotomphilia is a sexual interest in amputees; practitioners consider amputated limp stumps to be erotically exciting. Sexual interest in a particular amputee is not acrotomphilia — the paraphilia is based on fetishizing amputation, not falling in love or lust with a particular person who happens to have lost a limb.
.

🏨Some people develop a sexual fixation in becoming amputees themselves. This paraphilia is called apotemnophilia. In rare cases, people with this paraphilia actually arrange elective surgery to have limbs removed."
