Would it surprise you to learn that the foot fetish is amongst the most popular sexual fetish amongst men? It’s true! Right up there with the threesome fantasy is the sexual desire to touch, lick and worship women’s feet. Foot fetish is crazy popular, and with good reason: the feet are one of the most sensitive parts of the human body!
To get to the bottom of this popular turn-on, we spoke to a proud foot fetishist for an episode of our podcast, Speaking of Sex. This candid conversation revealed the fascinating truth: the feet are a highly sensitive erogenous zone and we can all learn to pay more attention to the erotic potential of our feet! The term “fetish” simply means an object or body part that creates strong erotic highs. It is not a disorder or something to be ashamed of! The feet are part of the body, and including them in your erotic life is no stranger than including the breasts, butt or belly! Here are the top five reasons your feet are your biggest undiscovered erogenous zone:

- Your Feet Are Incredibly Sensitive:
The feet have tons of nerve endings, and are designed to be highly sensitive to touch. Most of us wear shoes all day long, cutting the feet off from stimulation from the outside world. Kick off your shoes and allow your lover to touch your feet and you will uncover a whole galaxy of sensations. From a firm squeeze of the sole to tantalizing licks of the toes, there are dozens of ways to stimulate the feet. Approach it with an open mind and you may find that foot stimulation opens up a whole new realm of erotic stimulation!
- Your Feet Are Wired Into Your Erotic Mind:
There is a reason it feels so intense when your lover touches your feet: the nerves of the feet are wired into an area of your sensory cortex that is very close to that of your genitals, meaning the brain interprets foot stimulation as erotic input. So as much as it may turn your man on to touch your feet, you may find it can turn you on as well. Relax into the sensations of your lover caressing your feet and notice how it feels in your body. Do you get turned on? Many women do, making the foot fetish far more universal than we commonly believe!
