Anthropophagy Ingesting human flesh
Apotemnophilia Being an amputee
The desire to amputate a healthy body part seems to have a neurological basis. For the first time, four patients with this condition have been examined in a brain scanner.
It is not easily palpable. Because why would you want to have a healthy arm or leg amputated? People with apotemnophilia, as the disorder is officially called, want nothing more than that. Doctors usually refuse to comply with their bizarre wish: amputation of a healthy body part violates the physician’s sacred principle of non nocere – do no harm.
Asphyxiophilia, also known as hypoxyphilia or breath control play, is a sexual practice that involves intentionally reducing the flow of oxygen to the brain for the purpose of sexual arousal. This can be done through a variety of methods, including strangulation, suffocation, and the use of gas masks or other devices.
Asphyxiophilia is considered a dangerous and potentially deadly activity, and it is important for individuals who engage in this practice to do so carefully and responsibly. There is a risk of serious injury or death from asphyxiophilia, and it should not be undertaken lightly.
It is also important to note that asphyxiophilia is not a universally accepted or understood practice, and some people may view it as abusive or harmful. It is important for individuals who engage in this practice to respect the boundaries and consent of their partner, and to be mindful of the potential risks and consequences.
