Foot fetishism, foot partialism, foot worshipping 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 and is more prevalent in men than women.
I suspect my husband, Dunny & my dog, Tolo have a foot fetish whilst I’m obsessed with shoes. I guess it’s early days for the kids….we’ll have to wait & see.
Dunny can spot cracked heels, fungal nails & grimy feet a mile off. It’s like he has an ugly foot radar which is obviously on high alert during the Summer months. He has been known to send me pictures of feet he has just seen whilst going about his day. His is not a fetish of adoration but rather one of repulsion. Needless to say I am always careful to keep mine looking acceptable & well groomed!
Tolo has been obsessed with people’s feet since we got him as a puppy aged 8 weeks. He’s now approaching 10 & he is still just as keen. If a friend is sat on a bar stool in the kitchen, he will stand staring at their feet for hours if he is not moved on. He literally doesn’t move a muscle. 9 times out of 10 no harm will come to the object of his desire although he has been known to attack the feet of a tradesman who has been polite enough to remove his shoes indoors!
Me, I’m probably just typical of many other women. I just love shoes: flats, sandals, wedges, trainers, sliders, boots, you name it I’ve got it! I daren’t count how many pairs I have but as I say to Dunny, it’s not about need it’s about having to have them! Need doesn’t come into it! My love for shoes is another reason I look after my feet. My Mum had bunions when I was growing up & eventually decided to have them operated on. This operation is barbaric – they literally shave the bone down & it is supposed to be incredibly painful. My Mum said it was the worst decision she ever made, she was never able to wear heels again!
