TERATOPHILIA Teratophilia is a technical term for a sexual attraction to 'deformed' or 'monstrous' people. A teratophiliac is someone who is attracted to such people. One version of Teratophilia is acrotomophilia, sexual attraction to amputees. Considerable commercial and amateur erotica is published apparently targeting people with such a sexual attraction. Persons attracted to amputees in particular are said to be engaging in amputee fetishism. Teratophilia is a specific category of paraphilia.
