sexuoerotic body image fixation: A disorder of the solicitational and allurative stratagem. The personal and private recognition of the locations and functions of the sexuoerotic organs or regions of one's body upon which is superimposed in a highly idiosyncratic and nonconfirmable way a retrospective projection of how they are in the process of undergoing change, or should be changed. A sexuoerotic body image fixation may be benign as, for example, to have sexually significant body parts ornamentally tattooed or pierced; or it may be not benign, as for example to become a eunuch by genital self-amputation, of which the fortuitous outcome may be to bleed to death.
