There is something magnificent about a foot that is well cared for. The gentle curves, the elegant arch, the well-polished nails…
What? Never heard anyone wax poetic about feet before?
If the answer is no, then prepare yourself friend, because the subject of this Fetish Spotlight is the Foot Fetish.
Behind the Fetish
Podophilia, also known as ‘foot fetish’, is the sexual attraction to or fixation with feet. It is also one of the most common fetishes to date. The particular preferences a foot fetishist has can widely vary. A foot fetishist’s preference can be in terms of foot size, shape, adornments like jewelry or tattoos, and even the way a foot smells!
A foot fetishist’s attraction to feet can also be aroused by shoe choice. In fact there is a subset of foot fetishism that is devoted not only to the shoes a person wears, but to the shoes themselves as well.
If you or your partner happen to have a foot fetish, there are numerous ways to accommodate the fetish in your sex life.
Foot fetishists who want to shower their object of affection with submissive reverence might enjoy foot worship. Foot worship could mean any action from giving you a pedicure to sucking your toes.
The purpose of these actions isn’t necessarily to obtain pleasure from another’s foot. Rather, it is to give pleasure in thanks for their consented proximity.
For those who might be apprehensive about involving your toes with anyone’s mouth or genitals (or vice versa), starting off with a foot massage will do wonders for those nerves. A simple foot massage can also give you a chance to engage in a sensual activity with your partner, allowing them to show you how serious they are about their fetish, and how fun feet-based activities can be.
The activities one can engage in that cater to the foot fetish are plentiful. Some are pretty obviously sexual – the desire to gag oneself on a foot or to gyrate against a foot is as sexual as it can be – while other more reserved activities can be just as arousing to the foot fetishist.
It isn’t surprising that there are many ways to incorporate feet into sexual play. The feet are one of the most sensitive parts of the human body, right up there with the lips, the under arms, and the genitalia.
Sucking the toes, massaging the feet, and stroking the underside of the feet can all produce strong physical responses.
For those who are a bit more adventurous, toe-fucking – squeezing a penis with ones toes as your partner thrusts toward their happy place, is a definite option. Finally, foot jobs are on option as well. A bit more labor intensive for you than toe-fucking, but it can get the job done all the same.
Last but not least, yes, there are toys available for the foot fetishist. Model silicon legs and feet designed for looks and for a smooth, realistic touch are the perfect gift for the foot fetishist. They are a way to involve feet into sexual play without a shy partner’s active participation.
Allowing a partner to dress you with different styles of footwear is a great way to explore you or your partner’s foot fetish as well. Keeping play relatively vanilla – fetish-friendly, lightly sensual play – will help you and your partner ready to take your foot-centric kink exploration to the next level.
