Playing footsie is an ideal way to spice up a romantic dinner for two. It is even better when it is used as a distraction from yet another boring lunch with the in-laws. Footsie is defined as the action of touching another person’s feet, lightly, with your own.
Modern leg fetishism has been with us ever since the end of the Great War. After that, skirts began to rise, revealing the calf and then the knee. Thick unflattering stockings were replaced by silk at the same time. Men became sensitized and drawn to the previously taboo feminine charms that, up until that point, were hidden from their gaze.
Like foot fetishism, leg fetishism relies upon many separate areas of erotic interest contained in one part of the female body. The classic fetishistic male experience is to discover, through voyeurism, the visual attraction of legs from the feet upwards until a skirt imposes a barrier that leads to speculation and tension about the hidden portions.
Knees, and then thighs, are discovered by eyes and hands the closer someone gets to the sexual act itself so the exploration of the leg is an essential ritual that forms part of adolescent courtship and necessary erotic education.
Although denim jeans and tailored trousers have replaced skirts in many ways, young women are still encouraged by the seasonal fashion industry to make the most of their legs. Specific clothing and lingerie, designed to take advantage of their intrinsic fascination for men have become more and more specific, with stockings, long-socks and thigh-high boots adding an increasing variety to the ways in which this fetish can be enjoyed.
Summertime Sadness for Hosiery Fetishists
The warm weather has arrived, finally. I can appreciate the increased exposure of firm cleavages and long bare legs to greedy eyes on the street. While many pedestrians are thrilled about seeing more naked skin as they walk around, I cannot help but feel a little sad at the spectacle. As a devoted hosiery fetishist, the rising temperatures can only mean that my passion for wearing sheer seamed stockings, fishnet stockings and suspender belts will have to be put on hold again until autumn returns. I just adore going out dressed in extravagant lingerie. I enjoy wearing a short skirt over the top of stockings and suspenders especially. The feeling of my naked thighs stroking against each other with every single step of my high heels arouses me more than I can explain. It can be a real challenge to wear stockings and suspenders properly. It requires time, precision and no small amount of effort to get them looking just right. If they’re seamed stockings it’s even more complicated but its always worth it. That means ensuring that the seams are perfectly straight and that the stocking tops are at the identical height at the top of both thighs. Then it is essential to attach the clasps of the suspender straps with perfect symmetry. You can’t achieve this yourself without a full-length mirror. Alternatively, having the painstaking hands of an attentive sub simplifies the process completely. Recently, I discovered the solution to the problem of stockings and suspenders for lazy […]
An Afternoon of Foot Worship
‘Sit down and close your eyes’, he says, pointing to a black leather sofa. I obey, a little surprised that he wants to get down to business as soon as I arrive at his office. He covers my eyes with a blindfold and I sigh. Suddenly I feel a lot more relaxed, because from this point onwards, I know that I won’t have to do or think about anything; I can just lie down and enjoy some superior quality foot worship. He unties the laces of my red Converse and takes them off with great care. I notice the cold temperature of the tiled floor through the thin fabric of my white socks. Then, he grabs my ankle and raises it before resting it on his shoulder. I sigh again and throw my head back, relaxing even more. He grabs my other ankle, but instead of putting it on his other shoulder, he holds it firmly, making me feel like his prey and I start to notice my arousal. Photos by Lourdes Ribas Moments later, he releases me and begins to peel my sock off very slowly, as if he were undressing me. My socks suddenly seem to have the same significance as a pair of panties. I can feel the cold air against my skin and then a breath of hot air from his mouth that takes me by complete surprise. I feel his warm wet kisses on my skin as each new piece of it is exposed. As soon as […]
Venus O’Hara’s Official Calendar 2015
Most official calendars require a lot of preparation and although mine was no different (I stayed up until 6am to finish it), there was no stylist, make-up artist, hairdresser and most importantly, no post production. We live in an era of fake imagery from operated bodies that are later photoshopped to oblivion, but I think that perfection is anti-fetish, simply because it isn’t real. I’ve been producing my own official calendars since 2010 and I was looking for a theme for 2015 and after some hesitation it became obvious that it just had to be another calendar of selfies, seeing as I have taken almost ten thousand selfies this year so far. If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I publish an erotic selfie every morning, but to get that one single image, it often takes time and I inevitably end up with lots of outtakes. So I’ve decided to put some of those unpublished images to good use and include them in my calendar with my most popular hashtags on social media. Although I never photoshop my images, I often use some sort of filter, however, for this calendar I’ve decided to go completely natural. I hope you like it!

The Benefits of Bondage Tape
I love playing bondage games and I take great pleasure from the care and attention that has to be put into perfecting some of its more elaborate forms. Something like shibari, with all of its meticulous attention to detail, can be spectacular in its aesthetics and deliciously restrictive in its function. It takes a lot of preparation and demands a lot of skill and plenty of time to execute it properly and make it authentic. Bondage tape is an easy alternative if I am feeling a little lazy or if I want a sense of surprise and spontaneity. It’s cheap to buy, quick to apply and avoids the feeling of claustrophobia that heavy, unyielding rope can cause. Bondage tape is also incredibly versatile and it can adapt to almost any variation of tying, strapping or wrapping that you can think of. Bondage tape, because of a deceptively weak appearance when it is tugged free of its cardboard reel, can fool you into imagining that it is a slightly vanilla option. It’s comical variety of bright colours and a resemblance to thin latex certainly gives that impression. The real value of bondage tape can be felt, quite literally, when layers of it begin to criss-cross your breasts and are used to secure your wrists and ankles together like metal cuffs. Finally, when the bondage tape is peeled away, the feeling it leaves on the skin is very similar to latex and so is the clammy sensation. If you want to exploit […]
Seductive Soles (Foot Fetish)
Photos: Lourdes Ribas I’m still discovering the world of foot fetishism and I’m doing my best to cater to my foot fetish fans by taking pictures that I hope they will like. It’s quite hard to please all of them though. The thing I’m finding is that there is no such thing as a typical foot fetishist. If I take pictures of my feet with painted nails then, sure enough, I receive requests for unpainted ones shortly after. It’s impossible to keep all the foot fetishists happy all of the time, it seems. I decided to shoot a foot fetish set that would appeal to fans of the soles of my feet in particular. It seemed such a straightforward task at first. The fact that I could recline on a comfortable sofa, with my legs raised, just to flaunt my soles was the main thing that appealed. It turned out to be far more challenging than it looks in the pictures. Sometimes, it takes a lot of hard work to give the impression of being lazy. I hadn’t anticipated the preparation that the photo-shoot required and it came as a surprise. I had to take the time to use an expensive scrub and moisturiser to guarantee the condition and appearance of my feet. Foot fetishists will appreciate that I had to insist on a careful pedicure as well. I made the mistake of getting up from the sofa and walking a few steps on the parquet floor. Suddenly, the soles of […]
