Gregg M. Furth, PhD is an American psychologist and graduate of the C.G. Jung Institute in Zürich who also happens to be an apotemnophile.
Furth, alongside infamous sexologist John Money, was one of the authors of the first ever article describing apotemnophilia and in August 2000, became briefly infamous when surgeon Robert Smith asked Scottish medical authorities for permission to amputate his healthy right leg. They refused.
Following the media storm that arose, Furth and Smith went on to write the first and, to date, only book uniquely about apotemnophilia, Amputee Identity Disorder: Information, Questions, Answers and Recomendations about Self-Demand Amputation.
