Anyone that’s followed me for a while knows I’m very interested in sociology, psychology and how the mind works. Being a marketer and creative director (and this last political election) taught me that not everyone thinks the same way I do. The brain is a mysterious thing, which leads me to my point.
So, at some point, I’m assuming my images were shared on websites of questionable intentions, where many “Lovers of feet” apparently subscribe to an hourly newsletter. Anyway, let’s just say my feet have a fan club. And truthfully, I’ll agree, I have pretty cute feet, but I’ve never been sexually turned on by any foot no matter how attractive.
If you know me, you’ll also know how curious I am. So, I did some research and found out that early studies in reflexology offer validation that every area of the body corresponds to an area on the hands and feet. Specifically targeting my question here, the spot on the sole of your foot, in the middle of the heel, is said to correspond with your sex parts. So, given this avenue of thought, it makes complete sense why there are people who are turned on by photos of my feet.
It’s also stated that people with amputated limbs, i.e., a foot, often still have triggers of feelings where their missing limb used to be. This phenomenon is called Phantom Limb Syndrome. A long story short, people who have had their feet amputated have often reported feelings of sexual pleasure associated with their missing feet. This is because the areas of the brain that correspond to the pleasure from sex are closely related to that of the feet. So it’s possible when the foot has sensation and “lights up” that part of the brain, it also “lights up” a little part of the brain that feels pleasure from sex.
It’s crazy to think about how our bodies work, but through all this, it definitely explains why there’s a correlation between my feet and people being overly excited to see them in my photos if you know what I mean.
On a side note, I found out where the origin of “No shoes, no shirt, no service” came from. The puritanical customs of covering feet in American society persisted into the 1960s, so much so that the hippie culture thoroughly embraced going barefoot as a way of demonstrating their deviation from the cultural norm. In response, many businesses began hanging signs that read, “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service” as a way of deterring hippie customers. Even today, this cultural norm has become the standard.
