Why Do Men Like Women's Feet?

February 14, 2024

Feet are one of those body parts that people seem to either love or hate. They can be super ugly or incredibly sexy depending on the individual.

If you’re a woman and you catch a guy staring at your feet, don’t worry he’s probably not thinking about anything other than how cute you are. He may just be imagining putting his sneakers on your bare feet and walking around the house with you.

Some men, however, have a more serious reason for liking women’s feet. This type of foot fetishism is known as podophilia or foot obsession and it is more common in men than women. Foot fetishism can be traced back to childhood activities such as tickling feet in horseplay or getting your feet held and stimulated by your peers.

Sigmund Freud theorized that foot fetishism might be linked to penises as they both have similar erotic properties. The theory was further supported by neuroscience which revealed that the genitals and feet are both connected to the same part of the brain.

The reason some men are so attracted to women’s feet might also be because they are considered to be a symbol of obedience. If a man admires a woman’s feet, it is interpreted as a sign that he wants to be obedient to her and derives sexual pleasure from touching and feeling her feet.
