A foot fetish is defined as sexual arousal by the human foot. People who have foot fetishes are typically focused on a particular size or shape of certain feet. Studies have shown that foot fetishes are very common.
Both men and women can have foot fetishes. With some people, foot fetishes may also extend to shoes. Though the interest is primarily of a sexual manner, some people with foot fetishes say that they enjoy looking at feet in a non-sexual way. Foot fetishism is usually not a problem for those who have it, especially with a willing and understanding partner.
