Heels Required: Doing It With Your Shoes On
If your significant other has a fetish for feet, don’t freak out. Sharing a sexual fantasy with your partner is a great way to spice things up in the bedroom. It can strengthen your relationship and bring the two of you closer together, and it can also be a great reason to buy those sexy new shoes you’ve been coveting
If you know your flame has a thing for feet, don’t be afraid to get adventurous. Foot fetishes aren’t uncommon in American culture – women seem to be born with an innate love of shoes, and most men enjoy seeing a woman sporting some sexy heels. Foot fetishes also aren’t a new trend. Throughout history, feet have held allure for many different cultural groups.
Foot binding was a popular tradition in China for more than 1,000 years. Women would bind their feet in an attempt to make them smaller, despite the deformities and pain suffered as a result of the binding. Tiny feet were considered an extremely attractive trait for a female, and everyone was doing it. Foot binding is now illegal in most Asian countries, but small feet are still seen as a desirable physical characteristic.
In traditional Muslim culture, women adorn their feet and hands with henna tattoos to signify reproductive purity and fertility. The henna paint is bright red and highlights the feet, relating them to sexual proficiency and cleanliness. Applying henna is still a popular tradition today in countries in Asia, the Middle East and parts of Africa.
In America, we adorn our feet with stylish shoes and paint our toenails in a rainbow of colors to draw attention to our toes. According to Glamour magazine, women own an average of 469 pairs of shoes throughout their lifetime. This adds up to over $25,000 spent on footwear alone. Taking that into account, it’s no wonder foot fetishes are so commonplace in our society.
High heels are often worn by lingerie models, and for good reason. The right pair of shoes can prove to be the perfect accent for a cute teddy or a sexy corset. There’s something deliciously kinky about sex with your shoes on, so don’t knock it until you try it. If you suspect your partner has a fetish for feet, surprise him with a sexy pedicure or a hot pair of heels. Sharing something so personal will doubtlessly bring the two of you closer.
The fascination with feet seems to be cross-cultural, and is not limited to any specific gender. Next time your partner asks you to keep your shoes on while doing the dirty, indulge them. There’s nothing wrong with finding feet sexy!
