They at once get aroused when they see feet that are nicely shaped. It is nearly impossible for them to resist. And for many people, clean feet with long nails are sexually charming.

3. Foot Odor Is Also Attractive

Now do not take me wrong here. I am not about stinky feet at all. I am actually about the natural smell of feet, which is quite subtle and just like the natural odor of any other part of our body. For several people, due to this natural smell, it is quite tempting to smell feet and then lick them and suck the foot fingers. It is a whole scenario that helps subjects of foot fetish to achieve sexual pleasure.

4. Men Like Being Dominated

It is a submission and domination sort of sex play. And the feet are an integral part of it. Men having foot fetish want to be treated like a typical footrest. It gives them the utmost satisfaction to be dominated so that they can easily worship feet.

While many prefer bare feet but a good percentage of men want to kiss lick and suck all the possible things that are linked with feet. After removing the socks or jewelry they get extremely excited by the unobstructed view of the feet. Apart from socks certain stockings and hosiery also appeal to men who have a foot fetish.

6. Because It Is Arousing

Foot fetish has become quite common and the main reason is that several couples have recently discovered how foot worship helps them achieve a better sexual climax. And the reason is that; our feet have several thousand nerve endings at their base, known as the sole. So it explains that how playing with feet can help a person get sexually excited. The nerves trigger different body parts and that results in extreme sexual desire.

7. It Helps In Appreciating The Partner

In one manner, foot fetish is all about admiring the sexuality, comfort, and beauty of the feet. It means that a person is praising the sexuality of the shoe wearer.  It is a complex link that develops with time and that is why many people have their focus on shoes while meeting someone for the first time.

How to Make Foot Fetish a Better Experience?

Vanilla sex is quite boring for many couples especially those, who have the habit of experimenting with new fetishes and practices. It is important to add some spice to your sex life so that you can enjoy something novel from the normal. Foot fetish is one of the ultimate sexual experiences, which can be further enhanced by getting a pedicure regularly. 

A nice pedicure will leave your feet pristine. Imagine your man going all crazy over your beautifully groomed feet. Licking them sucking them and smelling them. To excite your man you can take a sexy foot selfie. An enticing photo will certainly play the game. You can even wear a nice pair of socks or shoes for a selfie. Isn’t it fun exploring different types of sensuality?

Is There Any Health Risk Associated With Foot Fetish?

To be honest it has a few risks associated with it. Youwon’t get pregnant but certain STIs and infections can be transmitted.

Talking about the STIs:

Human papillomavirus and oral and genital herpes can easily spread through skin contact. If there are any sort of open sores the chances of sharing syphilis are also high.

Talking about skin infections:

Athlete’s foot, impetigo and molluscum contagiosum can also be shared through infected shoes or skin surfaces. 

That is why it is recommended, for keen foot fetish lovers, to keep their and their partner's feet extremely clean. And yes make sure that your nails are cut and foiled properly so that the delicate skin around mouth, penis, anus or the vagina doesn’t get hurt while you are in the action.
