Good question, with a lot of different answers I guess.  And all of them will be right in their own way :)

My fascination started quite early in school seeing some of the older kids wearing braces and even some of them headgear.
When I was around 11 I went to a local orthodontist myself as I was told I needed braces.  The ortho was a older guy, that I was actually related to.
I thought I'd get braces straight away at the first visit, so was a bit disappointed when I came home with nothing.  I had to have a tooth pulled, had to wait a while for the appointment for that.  And after that we moved to a different place, and the original ortho retired.  So eventually when I was 13/14 I went to see a new orthodontist, he said I ideally neeeded braces, both upper and lower.  I didnt have that many friends back then, and was very self conscious.  Some of the other kids in my class were getting theirs off, so I protested and never got them.  To this day I still regret that decision, but not sure what it might have done to my braces fascination.

I have been attracted to braces since middle school. I think seeing my friends get expanders, braces and appliances intrigued me, especially because I didn't get braces when everyone else did. One of my friends brothers had quite a few different removable appliances and I was fascinated by them. There was something about the thought of having an appliance or braces that got to me and the sight of a girl wearing braces, especially with powerchains or elastics, is very attractive. I finally got braces and part of my treatment included a jones-jig and nance appliance. It was very satisfying to have a metal contraption acrylic on the room of my mouth. That was followed by full ceramic braces, powerchains and elastics. My ortho gave me an upper essix and lower hawley retainer. I has always wondered what it would be like to have an upper hawley, so I ordered one from the braces shop. What a feeling that is and I can't wait to order something like a twin block to see what it feels like to really have a mouth full of metal and plastic.

I'm not sure what exactly is it with braces but I think it's mostly the feeling and the awkwardness .
