Attraction to disability is a sexualised interest in the appearance, sensation and experience of disability. Many of those attracted pretend to be disabled and some wish to acquire a disability. Sexologically, the attraction is mostly seen as a paraphilia, though also as an aspect of identity disorder. Those attracted are not aggressive or dysfunctional, though a few may be in danger of self-harm.
