Whether it's on the receiving end of a sensually stimulating foot massage or obediently sucking on a dominant's toes, foot fetishism is one of those rare kinks with a thousand different -- but always arousing -- ways to enjoy it.
A Heel-to-Toe Look at The Best Foot Fetish Toys
However, because feet contain a high concentration of nerve endings and can easy be over stimulated, it's important to make sure all partners involved are equally enthusiastic about exploring and to check in with each other regularly when engaging in foot play.
With that said, is even possible to try and get to the sole...I mean, the soul of why foot fetishism play can be such a massive turn-on? And better yet, what are the best toys, lotions and/or accessories to help you or your partner get a foot up on feet play?
Today, it seems as if there are nearly as many foot fetish-focused (try saying that three times fast) products as there are innumerably unique ways to engage in feet fetish play.
So, to help you narrow it down, here are my picks for the most toe-curlingly exciting ones of them all:
1. Shunga Erotic Massage Oil
Who doesn't melt into a puddle of sensually-satisfied goo by having their tootsies massaged?

But if you want to goo-ify faster and have a more sensual experience, apply a generous squirt or two of Shunga Erotic Massage Oil to whoever is doing the massaging beforehand --and be prepared for some tip-to-toe excitement.
Why We Love It:
- Infused with Vitamin E.
- Non-greasy formula.
- Available in seven scents.
Please note, though, that this product is designed for external use only -- it isn't safe for use as lube or with condoms, latex and most sex toys. For those purposes, stick to water-based lube.
2. Magic Wand Mini
Let's face it, even the most passionately dedicated foot worshipper's hands will usually cramp up long before whoever's on the receiving end is done.
Enter my next selection, the Magic Wand Mini. As powerful as it is portable, this classic sex toy's good vibrations will have you moaning as long as you like -- or need.

Fun though this toy can be, never forget the Risk-Aware Consensual Kink (RACK) philosophy. RACK emphasizes taking personal responsibility for the inherent risks involved in certain BDSM activities. In the case of the Neon Wand, adhering to RACK means never using the toy without first negotiating its use, getting and giving clear consent and taking ample safety precautions to protect everyone involved.
Why We Love It:
- Lightweight design for easy use.
- Compatible with many attachments to customize your pleasure.
5. Impact Play Adventure Kit
Next up is the Impact Play Adventure kit. Between its fur-lined handcuffs, heart-shaped fluffy-red paddle, comfortable blindfold, small crop and miniature flogger, there's more than enough here to tickle, restrain, caress or very gently strike any feet fetishist's fancy.
It's important to note that, though impact play is popular among feet-fetish aficionados, it must be done extremely carefully to avoid damaging any of the foot's incredibly fragile bones or tendons.

Why We Love It:
- Easy-to-aim, beginner-friendly implements.
- Variety of products to help you discover the type of impact play that works best for you.
Why Do People Have Foot Fetishes?
Depending on who you ask, the reason why feet, a foot -- or all those dainty little toesies -- are so erotically alluring to caress, tickle, nibble, or anything else you like to do is anything from a common psychosexual interest to a physiological quirk.
Science geek that I am, I remember the famous neuroscientist V.S. Ramachandran suggesting foot fetishism might be due to our pleasure center's close proximity to the area where our brains process the nerves in our feet.
True or not, it's fascinating to think about. And it's equally cool to think about how subservient foot worship might be less about someone's feet than it's how they're the farthest, and notably lowest, part of a dominant's body.

What is certain is foot fetishism has been, and will be, around for a very long time.
Conclusion: Going Toe-to-Toe with your Foot Fetish
Heavy to light, sensual to sexual, casual to ritualistic, toes, soles, ankles, or anywhere else, there's a single, solitary truth about every foot play scene: As long as no one is physically injured, foot fetishes are never weird, strange, abnormal, or something to be ashamed of.
In short, don't worry about stepping on someone's toes; let your feet do the talking and have a foot-fetish kick doing it however, and with whoever, you like!
