To the uninitiated ‘foot fetish’ and ‘foot domination‘ might seem to be interchangeable. But they’re really not the same thing at all. They’re both examples of an intense erotic attraction to feet. But one sort of fetish relates to the foot as a simple body part or erogenous zone, akin to the breasts or ass. The other fixation understands the foot to be both a sex object per se, and a symbol of dominant power & superiority.
Feet are a sensual fetish
The foot fetish camp includes loads of men who for the most part think of themselves as completely “vanilla”, i.e. not kinky at all. These straightforward foot fetishists even includes plenty of men who consider themselves kinky but play a dominant role in a D/s dynamic.
Why this fascination with the female foot? For these foot lovers the curves of the feminine foot are just intrinsically sexy. Foot fetishists often have strong preferences for the size & shape of foot they like and even the kinds of decoration (nail polish, shoes, jewelry, etc) they prefer.
There’s a very sensual aspect to foot fetishes. Well cared for feet are cushiony yet muscular, with invitingly soft skin and a peculiar agile dexterity. They tend to be very sensitive compared to other parts of the body. They have an earthy odor unique to each person. And I think it’s not irrelevant that we often tend to keep our feet private and hidden away. Maybe even act as if we feel a little ashamed of them in very much the same way we act & feel about our other “naughty bits”.
How submissive foot fetishes differ
Guys who’re into foot fetish in a non-submissive way tend to be interested in things like footjobs and foot fucking. A submissive foot lover would never presume to anticipate such a privilege any more than he would dream of fucking his Mistress’s mouth or pussy. Subbie foot fetishists might have the same erotic appreciation for the look, feel & smell of feet that vanilla foot lovers do. But the foot domination fetish often has more to do with the symbolism of feet than an attraction to feet themselves.
It’s certainly true that foot domination calls upon a lot of powerful symbols. In a D/s context feet suggest many things: kneeling to kiss or worship them, being trampled underfoot like a loathsome insect or worthless piece of trash, even being degraded and used to clean dirty feet or shoes. The power of these experiences as archetypes is incredibly potent. Most submissive males will have Pavlovian erotic responses to them regardless of whether they have a foot fetish or not. But for some subguys foot domination becomes their idea of heaven.
I have beautiful feet: super high arches, soft meaty soles, succulent little toes. They’re unusually dexterous & I’m told they smell richly sensuous too. I’m personally willing to engage with simple foot fetishists provided they’re able to treat me with respectful deference – to stay put in their place! – and I never give footjobs as a service or anything like that. But I really get off on dishing out foot domination. My wide size 10’s are perfect for trampling. And although I love doing things that get my feet dirty (like wearing sandals when not going barefoot) I’m kind obsessive about having clean feet. Therefore I can get a lot of use out of a foot cleaning bitch, lol!
