Re: My husband and my feet...
Feet are an unappreciated part of the anatomy for so many aspects of life from the erotic to the playful. But there is plenty of evidence all about us to indicate the importance we give to those lowly parts of our body. Look at the shoe industry and particularly the popular emphasis on women and shoes. Look at the healthy marketplace for pedicures and foot adornment like toe rings and anklets. Reflexology has been popular for years and seems to cycle around every few years to another popular resurgence. Look at the expressions we use like "steady on his (her) feet" or "sure footed" or many other phrases that refer to the foot or feet.
Among fetishes or sexual preferences, those involving feet are among the most common. This predilection for the ped is often made fun of in popular media but also shows up as an erotic marker. Remember the scene in the James bond movie where her bites the bottom of the heroine's foot to remove a stinger?
And most often this fascination with the foot seems to be the male attraction to the female foot (though there is a healthy subgroup of those interested in the male foot). Remember the Chinese tradition of binding the female foot. OK, there is a lot going on there with other meanings but it also has its erotic aspects.
Granted, there are many who find feet smelly disgusting things better left unmentioned and covered, but the fact that this 2 year old thread continues to have life breathed into it every so often indicates a continuing interest in the foot and its many adornments for a cross-section of TAMers.
In my own experience, my wife loves getting foot massages and lets me know when I have negligent in that duty. Often we will be on the couch of an evening and her pedicured bare feet will be in my lap getting a massage with a liberal application of some pink peppermint scented foot creme. Her feet happen to be quite sensitive and I take advantage of that frequently by caressing and tickling her until she is alternately aroused or trying to catch her breath from ticklish laughter. And so footplay has become a regular form of foreplay for us. There is almost always some portion of our intimacy that includes attention to her feet. This is a mutual attraction. It runs the gamut from me nibbling her toes to her giving foot jobs. It is playful such as intercourse when she is in nothing but a sexy pair of high heels. It is intense such as finding positions where we aim for an intense climactic conclusion to our lovemaking that allow her bare feet near my face or hands so I can kiss, stroke or otherwise stimulate her feet while simultaneously bringing on the explosive moment. It is teasing like my wife texting me as she receives her regular pedicure to let me know it is a particular ticklish pedi this week as they scrub the bottoms of her feet. It is intimate when my wife slips off her shoe in the restaurant or movie and rubs her foot along my leg.
All this is not to exclude other parts of our bodies but attention to feet has enriched our intimate lives. Such attraction below the waist is not for everyone but for many it adds much to the relationship. While paying to attention to breasts and butts, necks and navels, don't forget the toes and soles!
