Is indulging in a beloved sensual fantasy of many men worth the risk of a possible male organ rash? The answer to that is entirely personal and varies from man to man. (It also depends on when the question is asked. When a man is in a particularly hot state, his brain tends to migrate from his cranium to his pelvis and all sense of logic can fly out the window.) Those who engage in activities that might bring about a rash need to take extra care to ensure that their male organ health is not compromised by this pursuit of pleasure.
He's a Sole Man.
The specific activity being referred to here falls under the broad general category of the foot fixation. Often when this term is bandied about, the image that comes to mind is of a man softly touching or kissing a partner's foot. Usually, this causes an intense sensual reaction and the man strokes himself along with the foot in question.

For many, this is a very pleasurable way to pass the time, but this is not actually the specific sensually-based foot experience under discussion. Instead, the experience is less technically a fixation and more of an alternative method of experiencing stimulation.
Heel, boy, heel!
That alternative method is the physical stimulation of the male organ by a partner's foot or feet. Sometimes the stimulation results in spillage; other times it does not. Some men enjoy having a lengthy foot-male organ liaison, while others are delighted with a brief connection between the organ and the foot that is just a small portion of a longer sensual escapade.
As mentioned, this is not totally a fixation by nature, although it can be: for men for whom the foot itself is a sensual stimulus, an object of sensual intrigue, there is a fixation component. But many men simply get off on the idea of having their manhood fondled in a slightly more unconventional manner.
Keep on your toes.
New or rarely-tried sensual practices are welcomed by most men and can be crucial to keeping a long-term relationship thriving; boredom is a danger to be avoided! Thus the novelty of foot stimulation is not to be discounted.
However, as mentioned above, foot-to-male organ contact does carry with it the risk of complications, such as a male organ rash. Such rashes tend to come about for a number of reasons, including:

1. The partner is possessed of athlete's foot or a similar fungus-based disease;
2. Bacteria from the foot gets passed on to the male organ, resulting in a minor skin rash;
3. The foot-play is a bit rough (or the foot itself is calloused), creating an irritating redness on the male organ;
4. The partner uses a soap or cream that causes an allergic rash to form on the male organ.
Of these, the first-named is probably the most serious (and certainly the most disturbing to visualize). While it is rare for athlete's foot to become "athlete's manhood," it could happen; the pelvis is a warm, moist environment, which is what a fungus needs to thrive. If a man's male organ develops a significant rash after foot stimulation, a trip to the doctor is advised.
