HUMP A STUMP

No, I'm not talking about humping a tree stump! I'm talking about Acrotomophilia, or better known as amputee love. This is a sexual fetish toward the love of people with amputated body parts.

This website also defines Acrotomophilia, as well as gives a psychological approach to understanding people with this fetish. This site also gives first hand accounts of the devotees, pretenders, and wannabees.

This site is a dedication to another site called AMPIX.net. Ampix was a business which provided pictures and movies of amputees to devotees. Although this site is not in existence any longer a search or ampix will lead you to similar sites which provide you with stories and contact information.

Acrotomophilia

Although the fetish of Acrotomophilia may seem new to many people it is not. The first reports of the fetish date back to the 1800's in medical literature. While Acrotomophilia means the love for someone with an amputation, Apotemnophilia (wannabees) is the desire for a physically healthy person to have a body part amputated in order to feel whole. A non-disabled person who has the desire to be with an amputee is called a devotee (Acrotomophilia).

The fetish involes both females and males with these desires. As bizarre as it sounds, many wannabees will do anything to find a doctor to perform an amputation. Some people have gone as far as to attempt amputation themselves or cause infections giving the physicans no choice but to amputate. A physically healthy woman mentioned in an article "I just didn't feel right," and was successfull in getting an amputation, and was quoted after, "Now I feel like a real person." While devotees say that in order to have good sex life it has to be with someone who has a missing limb.

I enjoy reading about sex and its many aspects but this is by far the most bizarre thing I have read on the net. I hope that you have gained some knowledge through the information posted and I look forward to posting more information as I find it.
