Why Is Foot Fetish One of the Most Popular Fetishes in the World?

According to a 2020 article by Men’s Health Magazine, “The single most common fetish fantasy involved feet, with about 1 in 7 adults saying they’d had a fantasy before in which feet or toes played a significant role.” There’s even a whole week dedicated to the fetish—Feet Week is the first week of May and celebrated worldwide. A Wikipedia page about foot fetishism, it reports that many famous people have had foot fetishes throughout history, including F Scott Fitzgerald, Quentin Tarantino, Idris Elba, Enrique Iglesias, Tommy Lee, Ludacris, and Ricky Martin.

Many psychologists believe fetishes are learned through our life experiences, and we develop associations between certain body parts and sexual arousal. Then, there’s the taboo element on top of that, and it can overlap BDSM when someone fantasizes about someone stepping or walking all over them. There is no standard as to how a foot fetish does it for a person—it can be touching feet, smelling feet, seeing feet in high heels, or even being tooed (the foot version of fingering)

There’s a science behind why people are into feet, and that’s the sensory input into the brain. According to neuroscientist Vilayanur Ramachandran, the part of the brain that processes the sensation people get from feet is next to the area that recognizes genital stimulation.

Another reason that people were into feet fetish was a sign of the times and a rise in sexually transmitted diseases during the gonorrhea epidemic of the twelve century and syphilis epidemics of the 16 and 19th centuries, both in Europe. During the height of the AIDS epidemic, footplay was a safe sex alternative.

Foot fetish is one of the easiest fetishes to being into a relationship because it can involve simple everyday activities like giving your partner a pedicure or foot massage. These types of activities are a great way to introduce this fetish into your relationship. Once everyone is comfortable and on the same page, you can introduce more sexual activities like kissing toes or sucking toes or touching or penetrating genitals with feet.

Considering how many people are into feet, this fetishism is quite normal for many people and less likely to be ridiculed. If you’re into feet, let your freak flag fly and embrace it.
