When I saw the subject for this week’s Kink of the Week, I almost panicked. What in the world would I write about a foot fetish? I discussed it with Master T and He came up with a great idea. Read on if you want to know about our foot fetish…
… but before I tell you about that, let me share with you the information I have found on this subject.
Centuries ago (and even as recent as in the 19th century), women in China bound their feet to stop growth. Foot binding was practiced among the elite and only in the richest parts of China. Apparently biding the feet of well-born girls meant that they were set free from doing manual labor. Bound feet were seen as a mark of beauty that became a requirement for finding a husband. Poorer women used it as a means to marry into money. There was a time when bound feet was considered incredibly erotic in China. Sex manuals from the Qing Dynasty listed 48 different ways to play with a woman’s feet. The feet were always hidden from sight, which was considered sexually appealing. Bound feet limited women in their movements, making them dependent on their family, particularly their men. This became a symbol of chastity and male ownership.
From the kinky Chinese, to the modern day foot fetish. I quote from Wikipedia: Foot fetishism, foot partialism, foot worship, or podophilia is a pronounced sexual interest in feet. It is the most common form of sexual fetishism for otherwise non-sexual objects or body parts.
In this same article it’s mentioned that Sigmund Freud considered the Chinese foot binding as a form of fetishism and I could not agree more! Another quote from Wikipedia: For a foot fetishist, points of attraction include the shape and size of the foot and toes (e.g., long toes, short toes, painted toes, high arches, soles etc.), jewelry (toe rings, ankle bracelets, etc.), treatments (such as pedicures or massaging), state of dress (barefoot, flip flops, etc.), odor, and sensory interaction (e.g., smelling the foot, licking, kissing, tickling, etc.).
One more quote, this time from Wiki Answers: A foot fetish is the need of a person to play with their partner’s feet in order to reach sexual satisfaction. Strictly speaking, if a person has a foot fetish, they will not be able to reach climax without the feet being involved somehow.
Most people that think they have a “foot fetish” actually have a “foot fixation,” where the feet are a fun area to play with, but, if needed, they can reach climax without feet being involved.
Someone with a foot fetish, or fixation, might be attracted to toes, soles, ankles, shoes, nails, nail color, jewelry, or their companion going barefoot (artefism).
There’s a lot of information out there about foot fetish, and of course other fetishes too. I have come to the conclusion that neither of us have a foot fetish and neither of us have a foot fixation. The closest we get to that is that Master T loves to see me in high heels and I love to wear them. Whenever we plan to have a photo session, Master T prefers that I wear my high heels. As you know, one of my standing orders is to wear my high heels when He puts my collar around my neck (except for my sleep collar). My feet has never been the focus on my blog except for one post, which eventually was about something other than my feet.
I love my feet. I think they are beautifully formed. Where there are many people who have a longer second toe than the big toe, mine is shaped in such a way that each toe is a bit shorter than the previous one and the little toe is tucked under the one next to it. I have never been ashamed of my feet and love walking around barefoot or wearing sandals, just as much as I love to wear high heels. I have never been for a pedicure, but have that on my 101 list, because I really want to try it. On Monday I am going to a wellness resort and there I will have a Dr Fish treatment. Why? Not because I desperately want to care for my feet, but because both my friend and I want to try it at least once.
That’s where my fascination with my feet stops. I love to see the shoes on my feet or see my feet in stockings, but I think I am more excited by the stockings or the shoes than my feet. And Master T is too. He adores my feet, as long as they have beautiful high heels on them 😉

For the foot fetishists out there, I have stumbled across a website that you might like. Maybe you already know about it, but if not, please enjoy Foot Worship.
