Love a good foot rub? Hell yeah! When it’s done right, even the most ticklish person can enjoy it. Sure, there are people out there that look at feet and think, ‘Yuk, no way’ but there are also plenty of people who find the humble foot irre-bloody-sistible. You know the foot fetish types?
Anyway, when it comes to foreplay and sex, the impact foot-play can have our our entire bodies often gets forgotten while we head straight for more tempting body parts. I wanted to focus on feet for a minute or two and hopefully tempt you into getting into some foot-play action of your own.
So what does foot-play involve? Absolutely anything and everything you can think of to relax your partner, enjoy the experience of sensual touch and literally make their toes curl. Sound good? It includes pampering, massaging, kissing, licking, sucking and even that other word that I’m sure your imaginations can fill in the blanks. Hey, whatever floats ya boat. If you can’t stand the thought of feet in your mouth, use your other body parts instead. There’s no right or wrong way and everyone has different preferences. That’s the beauty of sexploration!
Now, if you are going to get into some foot-play most people would recommend clean feet. Some people don’t care, but if you are going to get your mouth involved, clean feet are a much tastier option, yeah? You can make this the starting point of the play process. If you have a spa or bath to jump into together that would be ideal, but if not grab a tub large enough to comfortably fit warm water, feet and hands.
You’ll also need a towel and some edible massage oil of your choice. Use a scented one like Vanilla because it’s calming and relaxing. Different scents do make a difference, so check out our article “Unlocking The Secret Of Sexual Scents” and use it as a guide. Set the scene with some candles or dull light, soft music and get naked! Make sure the temperature is pleasant so you don’t get cold and feel forced to get to that happy ending before you’ve both had time to relax, feel pampered and thoroughly enjoy the experience. You can do it with your clothes on but seriously, why stop using those oils at your feet? It is foreplay we’re talking about so slash that oil around a bit after and get creative.
Ok, I got a bit sidetracked there, so let me get back to foot-play. When you have everything ready I’m pretty sure you can manage to clean feet without graphic explanation. As you are doing it though, turn it into a massage. If you are using the tub it might get a bit awkward, so give them a clean and ditch the bucket and pop their feet on your lap. Add the massage oil and please make sure it is edible because other oils taste revolting.
Even you don’t know much about feet, don’t despair. Reflexology has been around for centuries and the following diagram will show you which part of the foot is linked to which part of the body. It’s basic but explanatory for our purpose. Don’t just head straight to the area marked sexual organs either. Sex is way more than genitals so pay close attention to the toes as well as the remainer of the foot. Remember this is a slow, sensual, full body experience for you to enjoy together. The key to great sex is mind blowing, toe curling, touch hungry foreplay!
So, this is where you turn the humble foot-rub into something so much more plus it’s sexy as hell. Start by kissing the feet and ankles and then move toward a bit of toe sucking and tongue action. How you do it doesn’t matter as long as you’re into it. Remember I talked about attitude in the “Ultimate Oral Sex Guide”, well, that’s exactly what you need to aim for here. Plus, you need to talk to your partner and ask them what they like. It’s not a mind reading exercise. When it’s their turn to reciprocate let them know what feels good.
While you’re using your mouth and tongue don’t forget to use your hands, breasts and the rest of your body to massage his feet as well. Foot-play is an experience in sensation, touching, connection and pleasure. You can do it one at a time or take turns giving each-other pleasure. Just remember that men are visual and love seeing what you are doing. Bring on the sexy smile and lots of eye contact. They like to know that you are enjoying giving as well as receiving, so make it a well worth experience for both of you.

Celebrities have cameras snapping everywhere they go, so it’s understandable when they are having a bad hair day, they get snapped. But what about bad foot days? Some celebs have been listed as having ugly feet, when the fact is; their feet aren’t all that bad. Some have ultra common conditions that are readily treatable, while others have more serious conditions. This article takes a closer look at celebrity foot problems and how they can be eradicated.
Starting with Jennifer Aniston and Sarah Jessica Parker; their feet can be as gorgeous as the rest of them. These photos were probably taken after they had been on their feet for a prolonged amount of time. To reduce this look, especially if you can’t sit down; head to the bathroom to do a simple exercise. Take off your shoes and repeatedly stand on your toes and return the entire foot to the ground, about 20-30 times. It won’t take long. This exercise with assist circulation, which will reduce the veins protruding out of the foot.
Liz Hurley is another beauty with treatable feet. They have been photographed while they are exceptionally dry and cracked. This is usually most prominent around the heels and webbing of the toes. Plenty of people have this condition and it can be easily repaired.
Cracked feet can indicate other things outside the absence of moisture. There appears to be many causes, including; lack of attention to general foot care, fungal or skin conditions, prolonged standing, being overweight, ageing, poor fitting shoes, excessive exposure to water, climate or deficiency of vitamins and minerals, such as zinc and omega-3 fatty acids.
As the cause varies significantly, so do treatment options. Home remedies include; applying oil to the feet after washing and placing them in a pair of thick socks. If you can do this for several nights before you go to bed and leave them on overnight, any moisture problems should be corrected. You can also try remedies which use ripe bananas, avocado, coconut oil, lemon juice, glycerin, rosewater or melted paraffin wax mixed with mustard oil.
Aids from the pharmacy or supermarket can also be effective. These include; moisturiser and repair creams or using an ex-foliating scrub brush, to rid the area of dead skin and make way for rejuvenation. Improving vitamin and mineral intake by ingesting more calcium, iron and vitamin E, will be beneficial, not only for the improvement of your feet, but overall health.
These celebs have more serious foot issues. Victoria Beckham is a fashion diva and detests wearing flat shoes, so, she suffered significantly in heels. Oprah on the other hand, has worn flats to accommodate her condition. These ladies have bunions which are hereditary, plus made worse by incorrect footwear. There are several ways to treat bunions and the final resort is a bunionectomy, which was Victoria’s finally option.
Oprah has yet to have surgery and would possibly have tried other treatments, such as; walking barefoot whenever possible, avoiding high heels or tight shoes, wearing bunion pads, splints or shoe inserts, trying foot exercises or soaking the feet in warm water. The aim is to reduce the swelling and pain. Sometimes the treatments can reduce the size of the bunion and actually heal it without surgery.
Lastly, it is important to remember that some problems are structural, while others are indicative of further health issues. If you feel that you may have a problem with your feet, it is important to seek medical advice from a GP, who can refer you to podiatrists or other health care professionals.
