Apotemnophilia is characterised by feeling an intense desire, often of a sexual nature, to become an amputee.


As well as the desire to become an amputee, someone with apotemnophilia may also manipulate images of themselves, removing arms and legs in order to see themselves as they desire. The limbs they wish to remove are healthy and some people with apotemnophilia have even consulted with surgeons, asking them to remove the limbs so that they can achieve their goal.
