I was randomly sending foot photos that I found while I was
trawling for porn doing important research to a friend of mine. He has a foot fetish, I thought he might like them. Each time, he came back with a shrug and some comment like, “Too much man-hand, not enough woman-foot!”
My lack of understanding of good foot porn finally had him shaking his head and remarking:
“You have really pretty feet. You have a shoe fetish, yet you have no idea what a foot fetishist wants to look at.
It’s like how dogs have a great sense of smell but can’t really see colors.”
*laugh* Cheeky buggar!
But he’s absolutely right, I don’t get it.
This is a photo of my feet. This is intended as enticement for you foot fetishists out there to talk to me, but I have no idea if it actually *is* enticement or not! Without fabulous shoes on them, I just think, “Meh”.
So here are my questions to those of you who have a foot fetish:
- What makes a foot sexy to you? I mean physically, what do you look for (large, small, thin, long toes, short toes, nail polish, veins, toenail length, cleanliness, smell etc) or doesn’t it matter?
- What do you like to *do* with feet? Is it very specific?
- My feet: hot or not (yes, I’m totally going there, I really *am* that vain, and also, genuinely curious!)
While I don’t have a foot fetish, I must say you *do* have lovely feet.
It’s all in the shape. They are long and slender while the toes are in proportion to the rest of your foot. Your skin looks smooth and soft and I like the shiny nails. No warts, blemishes, or protruding veins are also a plus.
As I said, I don’t have a foot fetish but I know pretty when I see it. I just call ’em as I see ’em
*smile* Thank you for the compliment, and for the ‘why’ explanation. I’d think veins would be a plus for many, like veins in forearms… blemishes and warts, not so much.
> What makes a foot sexy to you?
No idea,they’re either attractive, or not. It’s all fluid.
> I mean physically, what do you look for (large, small, thin, long toes, short toes, nail polish, veins, toenail length) or doesn’t it matter?
Toenails have to be a regulation 2.4 mm long *grin* I actually don’t know what makes them attractive or not, I haven’t cracked that enigma yet. I *think* one part of it is they’re not too beat up (not always true) and slightly chubbier toes.
> What do you like to *do* with feet? Is it very specific?
Not specific at all, give em a massage whenever she’s down; If one’s around while poshing, give it a rub (totally stole that word I think).
> My feet: hot or not (yes, I’m totally going there, I really *am* that vain, and also, genuinely curious!)
Lol, they’re fine.
2.4mm long! Of course!! THAT’S the secret!!
I do get the ‘not sure, some just are’ thing on what is appealing, and certainly *receiving* a foot massage is completely lovely
“Lol, they’re fine.”
*laugh* Thanks SimplyJake.
What? Was I supposed to opine on them regarding supple soles or some similar bull? My bad XD
Lol, I disagree, giving them is much better.
I’ll admit, I chuckled at your response. Don’t fret it! What’ll you do? Get plastic surgery on your feet? (TANGENT: Does that even exist? Off to google!)
“Was I supposed to opine on them regarding supple soles or some similar bull?”
Ahh, but it’s not bull, grasshopper. I’m wanting to hear also from the foot fetishists who are very particular in their tastes. It all interests me.
And don’t fret about me fretting. It’s curiosity and interest, not concern.
“…plastic surgery on your feet”
Can you imagine? <= I was going to laugh at the idea, but unfortunately yes, yes I can, and that makes me sad.
– ‘Morton’s Toe’ is a (D)ominant genetic trait.
– Cleopatra is known to have had one.
Then there’s this quote from Wikipedia:
“There is also a belief in cultures (such as in Brazil) that women who have a bigger second toe, means that they are authoritarian. It is believed that when the women marries then she is going to boss her husband.”
Wow. It really is a shame that I don’t have a foot fetish, because we are clearly looking at the mark of a ‘True Domme’.
“It really is a shame that I don’t have a foot fetish, because we are clearly looking at the mark of a ‘True Domme’.”
That *is* a shame. How are you supposed to appreciate my true ‘Trueness’ if you don’t have a foot fetish? *sigh*
Well, it’s only an indicator. I supsect I can appreciate your ‘Trueness’ elsewhere.
Well, I sure hope so. I’d hate for you to miss out!
If you like shoes, then we are half way there! My Trueness really shines when I wear high heels you know!
I just have to say… I’m a switch and only one of my second toes is bigger than my big toes. Maybe there’s something to this, eh?
*laugh* Maybe! But what happens with those people who start off as submissives and then decide they are dominant instead? Do their toes grow? Like magic? That would be so awesome!
Well Ferns, you asked for it…
Wow, THAT sounded kind of foreboding, sorry, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about your feet – they are lovely! And yes, this is a foot fetishist talking. I have to say, I didn’t used to be one, but my Queen has successfully trained me to get randy at the drop of a shoe over her sexy feet (and now, over others’ as well, I realize). Like others above, I can’t really tell you what makes them hot or not, it must be something about proportions, I’m guessing (Yours do happen to look a lot like Hers! ;-) ).
I had no idea about the “Morton’s Toe” thing, but maybe there’s something to it, my Queen has one (two, actually :) ) as well. That’s pretty interesting. Though I have to say that neither yours nor Her’s are noticeable, they just look ‘right.’
“Well Ferns, you asked for it… Wow, THAT sounded kind of foreboding…”
Ha! It totally did! It’s okay, I can handle the truth!
“I have absolutely nothing bad to say about your feet – they are lovely!”
*smile* Thank you.
“I have to say, I didn’t used to be one, but my Queen has successfully trained me to get randy at the drop of a shoe over her sexy feet (and now, over others’ as well, I realize).”
Oh, now this is interesting. Conditioning vs you just having a foot fetish. So *her* thing is feet then.
I love having my feet pedicured: soaked and scraped and massaged and rubbed and moisturised and toenails polished etc, but I don’t think of it as *explicitly* sexual (no more than a body massage is sexual). That is, it *can* be sensual and sexual, but that’s not about the feet themselves.
Interesting food for thought, thank you!
“my Queen has one (two, actually) as well”
Super Double True Domme!!!
I am totally hot for your feet, my dear, because I know they are yours, and I recognize something of your fabulously vibrant, erotic, imaginative je ne sais quoi in that photos, the essence that so turns me on when I read your writings about love, life, shoes and, of course, the delicious pleasure you take in dominating your lovers. It’s not a question of any particular shape. I find a woman’s feet as expressive of her sexuality and way of being in the world, as are her hands, or face, or eyes… with something special that her feet can express as well — maybe from the paths she’s walked, the dancing, the slogging, the kicking, in shoes or out, the places she’s put them… Looking at your photo, I could imagine you slipping one of those graceful dancer’s feet out of one of your exotic pumps and pressing your sensuous, long toes into your lover’s crotch under a white linen table cloth at a fancy restaurant, turning on that hapless, lucky boy hopelessly, totally captivating him… or me… If “foot fetish” means the piede femme is sine qua non, then, okay, count me out. But if it means admiriing a woman’s feet … no matter the shape, so long as they’re expressive of her beauty in some way, with a commensurate longing to serve, adore, attend and in life, but at her feet in all the ways she indicates would give her the most pleasure,then you can hang the “foot fetish” sobriquet around my neck and call me kinky. In any case, thanks for posting the photo. Your feet look very relaxed, self-assured, wonderfully unadorned and naturally beautiful, by the way… Most of all, thank you for your always delightful, surprising blog, which I relish with every post.
“It’s not a question of any particular shape. I find a woman’s feet as expressive of her sexuality and way of being in the world, as are her hands, or face, or eyes…”
This makes sense to me as a non-foot-fetishist. Even if it’s not the feet per se, they are certainly a body part that has more erotic potential than, say, an elbow (oooh, elbows!).
“…pressing your sensuous, long toes into your lover’s crotch under a white linen table cloth at a fancy restaurant…”
For example, this… oh yes.
“Your feet look very relaxed, self-assured, wonderfully unadorned and naturally beautiful, by the way”
*smile* Thank you for the lovely compliment, and for your very thoughtful comment.
“Most of all, thank you for your always delightful, surprising blog, which I relish with every post.”
You’re most welcome.
Your feet are very nice, long and slender with nicely proportioned toes. My favorites are when there is a bit of a slope to the toes, with the big toe biggest and so one down the line. I don’t like veins, and I do preferred polish, but I have a bit of a polish fetish. Polish alone can get me going. But what makes a foot the most sexy is the attitude of the woman. I love it when a woman enjoys a man at her feet. I love it when she gets turned on by it, and I love it when she has a big smile from a man at her feet. I love it when she is aggressive about what she wants done to her feet.
Personally, I like a clean, but sweaty and smelly foot. I the smell turns me on. But I would happy lick every inch of a dirty foot and make it totally clean.
What I like to do is to rub, lick, and kiss the foot. I like to suck the toes. I like to drag my teeth gently along the soft skin of the instep and the arch.
Oh, I love the detail you provided. You do sound like a connoisseur who knows what he likes, thank you for explaining it!
“But what makes a foot the most sexy is the attitude of the woman.”
I’m getting the impression from some of the private notes I am getting that this is hugely important. That makes sense to me.
“What I like to do is to rub, lick, and kiss the foot. I like to suck the toes. I like to drag my teeth gently along the soft skin of the instep and the arch.”
That sounds delicious.
“Your feet are very nice, long and slender with nicely proportioned toes.”
*smile* Thank you kindly.
Nope nothing sexual at all about foot massages.
“Is it as bad as eating her pussy out? No, but it’s the same fucking ball park…”
Hot. All slaves are different. i like bare feet, preferably with bright red nails. i like an arch. i do not like corns or anything unsightly and unnatural.
Yet, i am a slave, so i do what i am told.
slavemark from fetlife
I assume the ‘hot’ is a comment on my foot photo? Thank you!!
I appreciate you sharing your preferences, slave mark, and I agree all slaves/submissives/people are different, which is what makes this so fascinating.
Those feet are super cute and sexy because I know (or I believe) they are yours, and I imagine you were feeling playful when you snapped a picture of them and posted it here for me to see. (Everyone else, too, sure, but mostly me. Leave me alone, I’m imaginisizing!)
I don’t really prefer feet to any other part of a woman, so I don’t consider myself a foot fetishist, really. I do fantasize about kneeling and kissing a woman’s feet, because it’s a fun demonstration of submission. You have to do something when you submit, right?
Then people say, well that’s just mimicking feudal times when victors of wars made the losing kings kiss their boots. Okay, but why did they do it? And, also, who really cares? If it’s fun and allows two people to enjoy a power exchange.
But it comes down to the person whose feet they are and what that dynamic is between them. When I’m doing MY important research for MY friend, I find clips of men who seem to want nothing more than to salivate all over feet with little to no regard to whose they are, and the women look like they’d rather be doing anything else. That’s not hot, to me. It’s the submissive gesture it represents that both people enjoy and appreciate that makes it a hot fantasy.
“Those feet are super cute and sexy because I know (or I believe) they are yours… imaginisizing…”
*laugh* They are mine! And yes, it was just for you, of course!
“I do fantasize about kneeling and kissing a woman’s feet, because it’s a fun demonstration of submission.”
I think that foot worship as a ‘demonstration of submission’ certainly adds to the appeal of it for many, foot fetishists or not.
“Then people say, well that’s just mimicking feudal times when victors of wars made the losing kings kiss their boots.”
I’ve never heard people say that, though when I think about it, I am surprised that those who think BDSM is very spiritual don’t talk about the symbolism and humility in Jesus washing feet, and Mary anointing Jesus’ feet.
Mortons Toes?? They do say a longer second finger in men points to higher testosterone exposure..so perhaps a big second toe means the same in Women? That might explai thne urge to Dominate!
Ferns you have lovely feet… Not a foot fetishist…but oh my i have loved the boots and shoes you have shown on your blog!
Great taste in adorning your feet!!
Hope you have lots of fun with your foot fetish blog!
“Ferns you have lovely feet”
Thank you, b.
“Not a foot fetishist…but oh my i have loved the boots and shoes you have shown on your blog!”
*smile* So maybe you are more of a shoe fetishist… I don’t think I am a shoe fetishist despite what *some* people might say. I just love them. That’s not the same as being sexually aroused by them (for those who might be wondering…).
Ha! Now speaking of shoes, this is hot!
Well well, something just jumped to the top of my “to watch” list.
I know, right?!
Taking my submissive shoe shopping with me is *exactly* because of this… So. Incredibly. Hot. Fucking GUH!!
I’d never seen that movie and my first thought was that he must be pretending to be a speaker of whatever language that was. I didn’t realize till the end of the clip that it was dubbed. ha!
Not to turn this into a links list of hot feet clips, but if you like Emily Blunt, there is a really sweet and hot scene in Wild Target where she gets a foot massage from…I forget the name of the guy. Great movie, too!
Funny, I could only find a dubbed version of that Emily Blunt clip also!
Nice find, thanks for posting that Emily Blunt clip. Now, is there anything special about her feet in that clip? Probably not, but the scene is so sweet and in the context of that movie her character is so insanely likeable and the romantic spark between those characters so genuine, that is what makes the scene so sexy. Kind of similar to what most people seem to be saying about foot fetishism. It’s the woman, not the feet.
In your case, you could have posted a pic of a man’s feet and we probably would have found them cute (and meant it!) as long as we believed they were yours. That said, I still say your feet are sexy and cute, looking objectively.
“Kind of similar to what most people seem to be saying about foot fetishism. It’s the woman, not the feet.”
I agree most people here are saying that, but I do wonder, then, if that can be called a fetish.
I tend to think that really hard core foot fetishists would love access to their version of a beautiful foot and can wax lyrical about what they would get out of it as a separate thing from their attraction to the woman (I’m thinking that a relatable analogy is really any sort of casual play scenario).
I also think that there would be serious foot fetishists who might say, “I really like you, but I’m sorry, your feet are not appealing to me, so this is not going to work.” (I think for a fetishist, this might be as much of a show stopper as not being attracted to someone’s face).
“In your case, you could have posted a pic of a man’s feet and we probably would have found them cute (and meant it!) as long as we believed they were yours.”
*laugh* I sooo should have done that!
“That said, I still say your feet are sexy and cute, looking objectively.”
*smile* Thank you!
Guh! See what you can find when you take a little look? This is just hot, foot fetish or no…
“I don’t think I am a shoe fetishist despite what *some* people might say. I just love them.”
This is what my boy says about my feet. He swears up and down that he has no foot fetish, yet he stares at them all the time and loves nothing more then to be squashed underneath them.
Makes me laugh so hard. He may not sexualize them in any away, but he’s so mesmerized by them, it’s easy enough to use them as a control mechanism.
“This is what my boy says about my feet. He swears up and down that he has no foot fetish, yet he stares at them all the time and loves nothing more then to be squashed underneath them.”
*laugh* That’s so funny, and so much fun!
Yes you have lovely feet! :)
I did not start out with a fetish for bare feet. I started out with a fetish for high heeled shoes and boots which I still have to this day. A beautiful woman in a sexy pair of heels (especially black leather boots with stiletto heels!) will always make me look and possibly drool.
I also have a fetish for black stockings; especially the classic old fashioned stocking that is attached with a garter. Pantyhose are o.k. too but not nearly as much fun. Cuban heels are a nice touch. Black stockings are especially attractive when a lady has her toenails painted fire engine red. They seem to wink at me from beneath the black nylon! ;)
Ah yes. Fire engine red toe nails. Another fetish of mine. Yum. Slurp.
Her Majesty has trained me to get off on worshiping her bare feet. Bare foot worship is closely related to my other fetishes and has been cultivated in me over time. She loves having her her feet rubbed kissed and her toes nibbled on. I often lay beneath her while she sits on the couch, worshiping her feet and driving myself into a frenzy of lust. Sometimes she will hold my head in her lap and tenderly stroke my hair allowing me to orgasm on her feet if I have been a very good boy.
Foot worship has become a main stay in our D/s relationship. I didn’t start out with a bare foot fetish but I sure have one now! :D I also still have a strong fetish for leather boots and sexy high heels.
Great subject! Thanks for asking! :)
“Yes you have lovely feet!”
*smile* Thank you.
“I did not start out with a fetish for bare feet. I started out with a fetish for high heeled shoes and boots which I still have to this day.”
I can relate to that! And thank you for sharing your experience with it.
“Foot worship has become a main stay in our D/s relationship. I didn’t start out with a bare foot fetish but I sure have one now!”
I find this really interesting.
Not that it would ever happen, but *if* you were ever to be in another relationship, do you think you would now *need* some form of foot worship to be satisfied?
your feet are okay… i’ve seen better.
Thanks for that, happyendings.
Can you share something about my first and second questions above to help me understand foot fetishists better?
happyendings has an okay question mark. I’ve seen better. In fact, I have better! ;)
1. Hygiene is important to me. I find yellow nails and big calluses off-putting. Apart from that, size, proportion, nail polish, etc. don’t really matter. Though I do find it to be an extra sexy touch if there is some scent there, like after wearing boots.
2. Licking, kissing, and sucking. I do like the symbolism behind it as well as the just plain sexiful nature it has. Foot massage is enjoyable as well, but that’s more of a “doing something nice for her” thing than a sexy thing.
3. Hot from what I can tell, though it’s hard for me to get excited over just feet. Feet in themselves have no inherent hottitude; to me, it’s more about the person that foot is attached to.
I appreciate that wonderful detail, roo-roo.
“Hot from what I can tell”
“Feet in themselves have no inherent hottitude; to me, it’s more about the person that foot is attached to.”
Nearly everyone has said this, so maybe my assumptions (in this comment) are mistaken. Though I guess also that my blog is hardly a mecca for serious foot fetishists.
(I love the term ‘hottitude’! *laugh*)
The first thing I noticed about your feet were the length of your toes. They are simply an invitation to lick, suck and kiss them,
The second thing I noticed was that your nails seem to be short. It would be devine to be naked before you collared and leash as I care for them, with the aim of making them longer. I do hope you would drag those toe nails over me while you walked and trampled me.
To be at the feet of a Domme, to care for her feet and toes is a reminder of being at the base. There is only one way up. Yes it is a form of humilation to be directed to her toes.
With the bare toes and feet, come the stocking coverd legs, the high heels.
I suppose my summary is the humilation of being below her. What is lower than her toes?
Thank you for the feet commentary… my feet are totally kissable! I’m not big on long toenails though, they can get in the way of fabulous shoes and that’s just not on!
I don’t think you are the only one who finds being at her feet humiliating, especially if you have your head bowed to her feet.
Thank you for your thoughts, peter.
I am not a foot fetishist, but I do like licking and sucking on them myself which , alas, I’ve gotten to do only a handful of times in my life. Admittedly as part of my kink it’s not a major part, but I hope it happens more often from now on.
And yes, you have above average smooth beautiful feet Ms Ferns.
That being said, I like TICKLING feet as well, and I’m very disappointed in that I read all the comments on this post and saw not one mention of tickling. To tickle these cute feet while you laughed your head off would be delightfully bratty and sweet at the same time, at least *I* like to think so.
Won’t someone think of brats who like feet?
HAH! Brats get LAST WORD :)
*laugh* Attention seeking brat!
You might enjoy this foot-fetish story I wrote which spends a little time exploring the meaning and attraction it holds for me.
And you do have pretty feet. :)
1. I do not usually find feet sexy. There are, however, certain feet that I’m fine with and others that I will not go near. Most of the time, that has to do with the toenails and cleanliness of the rest of the feet more than anything. Perhaps I should discuss hands instead.
2. I’ve enjoyed giving a foot massage now and then. Also, tickling can be fun. Or even sucking toes. I’m sure many people with foot fetishes can come up with a much longer list.
3. I find your feet very sexy. They match your hands well. Perhaps I’m thinking of them as an extension? You wear them so well.
As a man and ardent foot fetichism I find your feet very sexy. They have to be clean though and not smell for me to go crazy over the female foot.
What do I do with a woman’s foot–or feet? I will touch them, feel their curves, especially the instep. I will kiss them, take the toes in my mouth. Or sometimes just hold the foot, usually by the instep.
The female foot is, in my mind, enhanced by nylons. But I love the female foot naked too–very much so. Its impact on me is as almost as strong–as sexual, as erotic–as seeing a woman’s naked breasts.
Of course, yes, I do know Freud’s explanation about foot fetichism and I agree with him.
But knowing the theory (Freud’s theory) has not spoiled the erotic pleasure that the female foot brings me.
Freud says that loving the female foot is an unconscious defensive technique against one’s homosexuality. The female foot is a stand-in for the penis (both have basically the same shape, for one: both are long and somewhat narrow). So… I can love the female foot qua penis, while being unconscious that my love is in reality directed to the male organ.
This manoevre allows me to still be a heterosexual (which I am) while unconsciously paying tribute to the penis (via the female foot and via this unconscisous strand of homosexuality hidden deep within me).
Anyway, theory aside, you DO have sexy feet!
p.s. for those who are interested, it is the similarity in shape between penis and foot that is the starting point in Freud’s theory. To pay homage to the female foot is thus to pay homage to the penis. It is as if the foot fetichist were thinking unconsciously: “The woman I am admiring HAS a penis and that penis is her foot”. Now of course the conscious mind of the foot fetichism is totally unaware of his unconscious thoughts: he just finds the female foot incredibly sexy, period.
Thank you for sharing your well considered thoughts.. Really interesting.
My husband has a foot fetish, and he said your feet looks very sexy. :) So no need to listen to any of the haters. You have lovely feet!
On your other questions, while my hubby is not a hardcore foot fetishist, he sometimes like to kiss, lick and massage my toes. I actually quite like that pampering.
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Sandra (and to your husband) :).
I do think pampering can be absolutely lovely.
