There are many fetishes in the world, but like all things, some fetishes are more common than others. While if you have a fetish for something there is probably someone out there who shares your fetish, some fetishes are much more likely to have a devoted group of followers. The most popular fetish of them all would be the Foot Fetish when it comes to objects that aren’t generally sexualized as well as body parts.
If you’re into feet then you’re probably into them in a big way and foot fetishes can either be a sexual interest in people’s feet or footwear in general. Just like you would with people you’re attracted to, those who have a foot fetish pay attention to the size of the foot as well as the shape of it. The toes are also particularly important so if your affair partner has a foot fetish then you can dazzle them with some toe rings or nicely painted toenails. You’re also going to want to keep your feet smelling nice and feeling soft.
When the International Journal of Impotence Research studied the ‘Relative Prevalence of Different Fetishes’, they found that the fetishes that were the most common had to do with human body parts with 33% of their sample fetishizing some part of the human body. Of that 33%, feet were nearly half of what the sample found arousing with 47% of the sample enjoying people’s feet to an extreme degree. When it came to objects that were associated with body parts, 30% of the sample was interested in those objects with 64% of that percentage enjoying footwear such as high heels and boots.
This makes foot fetishes incredibly common when it comes to fetishes related to the body. Even famous figures like Rex Ryan (the coach of the Jets) made news for their foot fetishes and while the idea might seem strange to some of you, sex therapists have deemed his interest in feet healthy.
Foot fetishism is generally separated into two different branches where there are some people who simply find feet aesthetically pleasing while others can receive sexual gratification from touching a foot. Indulging in fetishes and experimenting has been noted as a key way to keep the spark alive in long term relationships.
So if you’ve got a foot fetish and don’t know how to let it be known, we’d suggest playing it cool. After all it’s generally not the fetish itself that people find gross when it comes to foot fetishes, but the way people react to them. Picturing someone cumming in their pants after touching a foot isn’t the most savoury image, so do little things like offer to take care of your affair partner’s feet.
Do not make it into a sexual thing right away or escalate it too quickly. You want to make sure that your affair partner becomes used to the idea of you touching their feet. You can even think of ways to make their feet feel sexy by getting them a toe ring or giving them a gift certificate to get a nice pedicure. If you want to touch the feet offer a foot massage after they’ve had a long day, we’re sure that the offer will be appreciated.
If you keep things slow and don’t escalate too quickly by the time you tell your affair partner that you have a foot fetish this may be old hat to them and you won’t have to worry about them freaking out.
The most important thing with this fetish, as with most fetishes, is that your affair partner is comfortable with what you’re doing at all times.
