On the scale of shocking fetishes, feet are just about as vanilla as you can get (unless you’ve got a vanilla bean fetish, which would be so vanilla).
But apparently, some delicate snowflakes of Instagram couldn’t handle a little foot-talk from RuPaul’s Drag Race season 5 winner and all-around stunning queen, Jinkx Monsoon.
“Disney is responsible for my foot fetish,” Jinkx wrote in a post, sharing this photo of Gaston from Beauty and the Beast:
And while the post is clearly meant to be lighthearted and fun, some commenters were quick to jump in with some good old-fashioned sex shaming, calling it “gross” and “disgusting” among other things.
Well the reaction didn’t sit well with Jinkx, who followed up with another post addressing the harsh comments.
“Here’s the thing,” Jinkx wrote.
“I’m a comedian – so most things I post aren’t meant to be taken too seriously.
“Secondly, are we not at a point in time where we don’t shame people for their simple truths?
“Like, if sexy Disney characters didn’t profoundly effect you as a confused child, then hip hip hooray for you.
“Do you really think I’m ‘disgusting’ cuz I have a fetish that you don’t?
“It may not be for you, but let’s seriously stop it with the slut shaming.
“Go follow someone dull and fake, if you can’t handle my truth.”
First of all, with a minimal amount of research, you can find out the most common fetish is a foot fetish so I see no reason for foot fetish shaming. It is less boring that common leather, bondage or “superhero” costumes and in our dream state, the foot represents the penis. Don’t ask. I don’t know why but I’ve never met a Gay man who didn’t like a penis. So if you think feet are disgusting and dirty sex fetishes, remember that the next time your tongue is up someone’s ass. Fetishes are specific to individuals and never apply to all. Sorry you missed that.
How anyone who swaps spit kissing, licks/eats genitalia or taints or anuses or armpits can go off on anyone for enjoying licking feet remains beyond my understanding.
I think the exact people you describe would not have a problem with it, obviously. The people who do have issues are the ones who are uptight but only believe in the most hetero-vanilla sex imaginable.
People who are foreign to the concept of fetishizing feet need to get out more and sleep with more people. Seriously.
Statistically speaking, you can probably count the amount of people you’ve slept with on one hand if you’ve never met someone who was into feet. They might not have confessed it to you, but so many people are into it.
And talking of cleanliness, I’m pretty sure even the nastiest foot can never get as bacteria-ridden as an asshole.
I don’t even consider a foot fetish to be *fetish*……it is just too normal.
There are a lot of fetishes out there that are disturbing, and if you aren’t aware of them, then you’re better off. I don’t have any fetishes, but, please, feet? I can smile if someone tells me that’s there’s. Definitely nothing remotely disgusting about that. And for whoever is saying that it is, you should work on being a better person, you’re not quite there.
