is a pronounced fetishistic
sexual interest in human feet
. A foot fetishist can be sexually aroused by viewing, handling, licking, tickling, sniffing or kissing the feet and toes of another person, or by having another person doing the same to their own feet. Some foot fetishists have their genitals manipulated by their partner's feet to the point of orgasm or ejaculation. The fetishist response to the foot is the same or very similar to a conventional person's arousal at seeing genitals. Some foot fetishists prefer bare feet, while others may prefer feet dressed up in certain types of shoes, socks or hosiery. A foot fetishist can be male or female, and can have an interest in the feet of either sex. Freud
considered foot binding
as practiced in China as a form of fetishism.
