I just don't get it. What is it with foot fetish? How are people aroused by feet? I'm not condeming, but I find it to be rather odd, and to some extent, rather creepy. I had joined a DA group called Fight Night where I was submitting photos of my taekwondo students sparring. I was happy to see the number of favorites go up on those photos, until I noticed that most of the people faving them had galleries full of bare feet. It creeped me out that my 8 - 10 year old students were in a fetish gallery. So I blocked those people just to remove my photos from their galleries. Then I quit the group.

Another thing that gets me in a funk is bondage. How can someone get aroused by a photo of a woman tied up and gaged? That to me is just sick.

I've always been at war with the pedophiles wanting to fav my photos, now its the feet fetish folks. I don't have to worry about the bondage people because nothing I have would be of interest to them.

Well Greg, hope and pray I'm not about to lose a good friend, but to be totally honest, I've had a mild foot fetish since I was 12 or 13 years old. Please keep in mind that fetishes vary from person to person; in my case, have never kissed, licked, sucked, etc. any woman's feet or toes and never wanted too. I also never cared for any of the sock or shoe fetishes I've seen some of the creepier foot guys have. I just happen to think that a beautiful woman who takes good care of her feet is sexy; meaning she gets regular pedicures; treats her feet just as she does her hands (lotion, etc).

At age 50, I've never done anything because of this fetish that I'm ashamed of; never insulted, offended, or frightened a woman (am a perfect gentleman at all times); don't put up with other men doing it either. I assisted in arresting a foot fetish creep in my hometown several years ago; harrassing young women in the mall, even girls as young as 12-13....offering cash to let him tickle or smell their feet. These type of individuals are very sick (and dangerous) and it makes good sense for law abiding citizens to be wary of them. However, broad brushing every man who see's his beautiful wife or girlfriend's bare feet just as sexy as her hiney and breasts is a big mistake. I'm living proof (and we've known one another over eight years)....have never misbehaved at any of your websites.

FYI: as for the bondage, I actually once had a girlfriend who was really into that; the "Damsel in Distress"/ Penelope Pitstop/ Perils of Pauline roleplay where the helpless young woman is bound/ helpless by a fiend, but rescued by her hero. I've actually found women more drawn too/ interested in this type of fetish than men (several female friends/ family members admit to having bondage/ damsel in distress fetishes/ role playing with their husbands. As someone else mentioned, when a fetish such as these happens only inside a home between two consenting adults, it hurts no one. Only when a sexual predator or warped/ sick individual tries to force his fetish on unwilling adult participants or anyone under 18 does it become weird, creepy, and potentially very dangerous (many of these type graduate to rape and other crimes of violence, esp. towards women and children).

Don't worry, no lost frindship here. Like I said in my opening "I'm not condeming, but I find it to be rather odd..."
You know, different strokes for different folks.

Thanks Greg! I'm used to being thought of as odd. I also chase tornadoes and hurricanes. That automatically pegs me as odd :D

Besides lots of psychology theories, there's also a scientific theory, saying that the neurons sensing "pleasure" and those processing signals from the feet are next to each other in the brain cortex, and get "wired together" to some extent in many people. It's apparently very common.

Of course, they should leave children (or any image that is not aimed to them) out of it. :(

And I cannot explain bondage or the more extreme / weird fetishes either. As =Midget-Penguin said, there are a lot of disturbing ones out there.

Sadly, there are far more disturbing fetishes out there.

Its not that feet gross me out, I just think think its weird to have a fetish about. When I was a kid we went around barefooted all the time. I didn't live in the country, I grew up in New Orleans. I was so used to picking things out of my feet and my friends feet when they couldn't do it that it was like second nature to me and no big deal. Feet are just feet. You walk on them, and you kick people with them. You DON'T have sex with them!

I must admit I am with Stratman, I find feet gross and physically repelent and do not understand foot fetishists. However I had not thought about the foot freaks adding the photos of childrens feet to their bizzare collections. I do actually paint and draw nudes and I find quite a few of the people and their comments very offensive. I agree with Kicks it would be nice to be able too enjoy our art without the worry of having to deal with perverts.

I find feet gross in general so I really can't relate. I also agree with the bondage thing. I guess you just chalk it up to "To each his own".

agreed. I'll try not to judge, 'cause I'm to be judged myself by the ultimate judge. But I still have my opinions and free will to act accordanly. It'd be nice to have a website free of perversions where we could go to have share the enjoyment we have in our art or hobby without worry or concern that it would be abused by others.
