Feet are one of the most commonly fetishized non-sexual body part, Both Elvis Presley and Andy Warhol were both said to have a foot fetish, so you’re in good company if feet are your thing.

If you’re new to the feet scene then take a read of our recent post Below the Ankles – Foot Fetish Basics. If your kink or your partner’s kink is feet and you’re wondering how you can spice up your foot worship game, then keep reading.

A foot fetish comes in many different forms, which is why it’s so important to be explicit about what you like and what you don’t.

Once you’ve talked things over, exploring this kink together can be such an exciting experience.

Foot Kissing

Foot kissing can be a great way to introduce feet into your sex life, start exploring together what you both like and are comfortable with. Kissing can, of course, lead to nibbling and licking which can be very sensual experience, especially true for women, who don’t have the phallic equipment to receive a blowjob. Try sucking the toes and running your tongue in between them to give any foot fetishist the chills.

Check out our post ‘From Blowjob to Worship’ for many tips that apply for foot worship just the same: Look at your partner, take your time, show visually and audibly that you enjoy what you are doing. You’d be surprised what a difference it makes when you just lick someones feet – and then you lick them with all your care and love – ha! That’s where the magic happens.

Foot Massage

You might be thinking “Everyone enjoys a foot massage, what’s kinky about that?” Well if feet are your thing or your partner’s, then a foot massage can be very arousing and a nice way to relax and pamper each other. Talk it out and discover what part of your feet you like massaged the most.

A foot bath prior to a foot massage is also great foreplay for those of you who don’t like smelly feet


Tickling can be a fun way to tease your partner, although this isn’t for people who are overly ticklish. Consider trying this bound, of course with your safe word ready at hand. Using props like feathers can add new sensations – or annoyance – whatever you are aiming for.

Foot Spanking and Whipping

Yep, spanking – not just for the bottom at all. For those who like it rougher, foot spanking – either bare handed or with props such as paddles can be fun. Small floggers are a great way for a different feel on impact play. Just make sure you start slowly – feet, especially the soles, are very very sensitive areas. Don’t smack the cane down on them on day one. If ever. Ouch.


For many people who enjoy feet, getting a professional pedicure leaves you with touchable and sometimes irresistible feet but why not ask your partner to provide the treatment, allowing them to pick your nail color and truly indulge in your feet.

If receiving a pedicure does it for you, consider sharing the joy with toys like vibrators and cock rings to get your partner aroused too. Great tip for Dom(me)s with pedicure fetish who like their subs to be a little bit hornier than normal.

Foot Jobs

This “simply” means stimulation of the penis with feet, or for women stimulation of the clitoris usually with their partner’s heel. You can easily get this started by playing a little footsie underneath the dinner table. Many men like it when you rub their penis between both soles – like making fire. Or wrap your toes around their shaft. Great leg exercise too over a prolonged period of time. Lube is your friend here.

Secret tip: Many men don’t dare to come over their partner’s feet when they start opening up to them about their foot fetish. Giving them permission to come – or even telling them to do so, can be a massive turn on and get you extra brownie points.

Sexy Footwear

There are so many things you can explore here not to mention so many different footwear styles, from shoe shopping together, to sex with heels on, donning sexy footwear can make you feel confident and pairs well with sexy lingerie. And remember, each their own – some will kill for tennis socks, others for over-the-knee school girl style and yet others for fancy lace stockings. Fishnet is a classic too.

BDSM and Foot Worship

Bringing feet into your usual BDSM play can really spice things up. Doms may wish to ask their subs to incorporate any of the above tips into playtime. The great thing is that you can play with all of the above very sensually – or very rough – depending on the mood of the day. I will let you use your own imagination there 😉

There’s no right or wrong way to explore your foot fetish as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone and everyone involved consents. Maybe you’ll try a few things out, and you realize it’s not for you, that’s ok too. My biggest tip of all is to talk openly about what you like and don’t, but most of all just enjoy.
