Head Over Feet

I had quite a bit of time to think while at work this morning. I guess that's one perk of doing menial cash register tasks for 8 straight hours. I started thinking about my exes and the commonalities they all had.
And it dawned on me. They all had an insatiable obsession with my feet.
Every time I wore sandals or dared walk on their carpet sans socks, their eyes darted right down to my well-manicured toes. I never thought much of it, but did get a bit worried when tickle fights ended with me kicking one of my ex-men furiously because he couldn't get his paws off my pale pink arches.

What is so appealing about feet? We're on them all day. They touch everything on the floor that our tongues would not dare taste. My second toes are obscenely longer than my big toes! Okay, that might be tmi, but seriously, feet? Out of all the fetishes in the world, I have to be attracted to the ones with foot obsessions.

What is YOUR fetish? Or fetishes. If enough of you volunteer your answers, I will gladly give you mine. It's good, too.

I think I know what yours is. NOT from experience! Just wanted to clarify.

NotCharlotte said...

hahha now I want to know what you think it is...


but don't say it! :-)

I've never understood foot fetishes myself. I LOVE shoes, but it's not about the feet, it's about the shoes.

I would love to date a guy with a foot fetish- foot massages every night.

NotCarrie said...

I'm too ticklish for foot massages.

jo said...

i was just thinking recently bout what things past guys i've dated had in common with each other... and how maybe we just tend to choose the similar type of men...

i don't get this foot fetish thing either... i mean i like guys with nice feet but that doesn't mean i'm gonna wanna get freaky with their feet or whatever.

Lindsey said...

I HATE feet. Let me see...what would be my fetish? Ummmm...I have a thing for arms and shoulders.

jordan said...

I have the same thing from exes.. some weird attraction to my feet.. I have tan tiny size 5 feet with manicured toes.. so I take advantage of the attraction and get lots of foot massages.. but anything other than a foot massage is just gross.
I HATE feet ...when standing in line anywhere I notice feet and I'm so disgusted by the fact SO many people don't take care of their feet.. nasty heels and toes.. it's G.R.O.S.S. I want to say.. get some shoes on your feet are UGLY.
My personal fetish.. hmm.. I LOVE love love pretty blue eyes on a guy.

Irish Red said...

i'm with jordan...love pretty blue eyes. My real fetish thought is accents :)

NotCarrie said...

Oh yeah, accents. OOOOH YEAHHHHH!

Jos said...

A man that wears glasses. . .hmm, hmm, hmm!

mean girls said...

I don't get the foot fetish either. The funny thing is, we have a friend who totally does have a foot fetish and you should see his wife's toes! They are scary, nasty, crusty. I just don't get it.

My fetish? Hmm...I will do any guy that does the dishes!

NotCharlotte said...

Guys, I don't think you get what I mean by fetishes...

I don't mean what attracts you to men, I mean what your one obsession is... for example. My fetish is vampires... like being bitten, darkness, capes, etc.

Let's be a little less PG-13 here folks!

NotCarrie said...

Yeah, but oftentimes, a person with a fetish requires that object to be there. I definitely do NOT have that.

Jos said...

I'm obsessed with glasses! lol!

jordan said...

i'm obsessed with blue eyes... haha

Clueless said...

Men with broad shoulders, playfighting, mucking around being pinned down if I already like the guy. And you ladies are responsible for the idea of (not the act of) the whole "getting pens" or up against walls. ;) Sometimes the fantasy is all you need.

NotMiranda said...

Alright, I had to look up the definition of fetish before responding because I, too, was shocked at where the comments were headed and how tame they were. Allow me to kick it up a notch, as Emeril (hopefully) says.

Given the Merriam-Webster definition of fetish, I don't think I have an actual, full-fledged version. However, I think NotCharlotte might have been alluding more to a kink. As far as kinks go, I'd like a man who can give it and take it a little rough.

when you get that husky voice and say "SAY my name, Bitch!!"

:p

K said...

Now I feel boring, having no fetishes of my own.

No wait, how about big, fat wallets?

Kidding, kidding...

NotCarrie said...

I have no fetishes, but I do have things I REALLY find hott, does that count? I love being secretive while out in public. Like, stealing kisses when noone is looking or just being hidden by something small-love that.

A man who can dance to brit pop (who is not gay) is super hott bc I have to believe those moves will work for other things, too.

I will really want someone to surprise me in my room....but it could also be terrifying to look up and see some guy there. haha!

Spill The Beans said...

I love body hair. I want my guy to have, at a minimum, chest hair and a bunny trail. And he better not shave/wax it either.

Andrea said...

Interesting post. Sorry I got here so late. There is something about a lazy lip that just means the world to me. Upon meeting a man, and he almost drools...AND he has an amazing mouth. Well, it says several things to me. I'll keep them to myself, but I do like...a lot!

hahaha.. apparantly, (and I dont know how true this is, so you be the judge) women whose second toe is longer than their big toe dominate their men. So I'll bet you have your men wrapped around your lil finger?
