Today I got a phone call from a man asking if we had any movies about amputees. Again, I'm not trying to single people out or imply that there is anything wrong with what someone finds attractive or arousing, I was simply caught by surprise. I don't really know the point of this post other than that I'm curious if anyone else has those, "I'm open-minded and everything, but...." moments when they find out about a fetish or sex toy. Or if they have heard of this amputee fetish and perhaps have some insight as to how long it has been a publicly discussed fetish, or how long movies have been made to cater to this type of fetish.
I have seen TV specials about people who have an almost irresistible desire to be amputated. They just feel like something's wrong with the way they are, I suppose similar to people who feel they were born the "wrong" gender. I know that people who want to be amputated often have very specific desires. They want it to be THIS particular limb, cut off at THIS particular spot. Often wanting both arms or both legs cut, but at different lengths. So I suppose it makes sense that there would also be individuals would find amputees to be sexually attractive. I don't know. I hope I'm not sounding ignorant here, I completely intend for this discussion to be one of learning, as I obviously have very little insight on the topic. Since this community is diverse and full of intelligent, well-informed people, I thought it would be an excellent place to discuss it.
And if I really stop and think about, even though I don't myself have an amputee fetish or anything, there's obviously nothing WRONG with someone having an amputated limb. I adore my boyfriend and if due to some accident or medical condition he had to lose a limb, I like to think I would be just as attracted to him as I always have.
