I'm asked:

What makes a particular foot or pair of feet attractive to you?

I'm asked this question all the time, and it is so hard to answer. For one, there are no real set rules to my tastes - there are definitely generalities abound, but my tastes do vary here and there.

To paraphrase Potter Stewart, "I know it when I see it."

My particular tastes range away from wider feet, although too narrow isn't to my taste either. I tend to enjoy longer toes, as opposed to short stubby toes preferred by the likes of Elmer Batters (that link has examples of his preferred specimens).  I enjoy a bit of an arch. I like smooth skin on the soles, not-calloused, rounded heels.

I actually enjoy a bit of a scent to those I play with, which I suppose makes me a dirty boy. But that lovely taste and scent of sweat is actually quite the aphrodisiac for me. My partners generally despise this, because it goes against their usual cleanliness rituals. My slave and I joke that her feet will never smell right enough for me - she uses so many bathing products, that even left unshowered for over a day and the thickest socks and sweatiest shoe-wear when taken off still reveals nothing but the scent of flowers in the air. Who would have thought my slave would be too clean for me. Ah, she makes up for it in many other departments.

I much prefer the soles of the foot to the top view. In fact, the top will never turn me on, per se... it will only hint and tease me until I see the bottoms.

Also, my foot fetish is almost exclusively for women's feet. For some reason, men's feet very rarely do it for me. There have been exceptions to this, of course.

Perhaps some visual examples might help.

These photos were found by a random google search - they are not of anyone I know.

Not perfect, but yummy:

Definitely leaning away from my personal style:

Rosario Dawson - YUM. I use a different view of this shot as my computer screen wallpaper.

Now, all that stated, overall sexual attraction to a person does play into this. Despite someone not having feet that would be a little off in my usual realm of preference, if I am into the person overall, I can certainly have fun with what they have.

But if someone has feet I just simply do not like, I really can't go there.

You can ask your questions here. All questions will be screened.

I'm surprised to hear that you don't really love the tops of the feet on their own - I never knew that. (See, Question Month is very educational!) You always seem to love women in sandals - is that because you *enjoy* being teased with a glimpse of a bare foot without being able to see the bottom?

I suppose I might. It's akin to a breast fetishist who enjoys the site of cleavage and the hints for what else remains hidden, but the blood truly flows when there is full visual pay-off.

So THAT'S why my feet don't do it for you unless I've had a professional pedicure.

I can stick a pin in the bottom of my feet and not even feel it. (Fair skin + refusing to wear shoes EVER= Callouses from HELL) I should donate my callouses to war zone areas to make bullet proof vests to protect civilians...Hey there's "Locks of Love", why not "Callouses of Caring" ?

They all just... look like feet to me. *laugh* I'm curious about what makes a foot fetishist tick, and you seem like a good one to ask. I actually do like to play with feet sometimes, but I don't think I qualify as a fetishist. To me they're just another sensitive part of a partner's body, though when I play with someone who has a foot fetish, if they like my feet, I'm not hesitant to exploit their interest for fun effects. Must ponder. Thank you for your honest and thorough reply.

For me, it's so ingrained within my sexuality that I almost consider it a biological trait. Just like other visual sexual stimuli work (porn, nudity, etc.), so does the mere sight of certain feet.

I wish I could explain why I have such a turn-on. I don't have any explanation that works though.

Well, I have a few fetishes myself and for the most part, I don't know where they came from either. I didn't have any leather/boot/glove fetish leanings till I came into the scene; I know that the degree to which I respond to certain items thereof now is the result of conditioning (the boots in that icon of yours are pretty hot).

I like playing with partners who are open about their fetishes... it's fun when somebody has an "easy on" button. Also, having spent much of my life feeling unattractive and undesirable, anything that gives me the power to arouse someone is worth owning, in my book. I think that when one grows up outside the culturally accepted norms of attractiveness (in my case, because I've always been fat), one learns how to do things that turn partners on, instead of just expecting that all one has to do is show up and look pretty... which gets old fast, in my experience.

So, feet. I have 'em, and they're actually one part of my body that I've always liked. I have high arches and that makes them look kind of graceful to me, and they're not afflicted with anything too gross (knock wood)... so if I can use them to my advantage, I'm all for figuring out how. So far, so good. :)

Hmmm... How can someone not have callouses at all... I mean even if you keep them well maintained, doesn't walking make everyone at least a *little* calloused?

Which reminds me, I've been meaning to get my feet done...

Also, it's been a while. How goes?
