Speaking Point: There are a variety of parts of the human body that men find attractive that seemed to be hardwired into men’s brains. These parts could include breasts, legs, feet, torso, butt and of course face and possibly others as well. Some people may wonder what would be sexy about a woman’s feet, those parts of the body used for walking and standing; how can feet be sexy?
Speaking Point: ? For one, women often spent time and pay attention to making their feet look pretty. From pedicures to skin lotions to sexy shoes or sandals, this is something that men do not typically do. The arches and natural curves of the woman’s foot have some built-in appeal and exude femininity.
Speaking Point: There is a possible neurological argument for why men like women’s feet. The feet and sexual areas are called “neural neighbors,” meaning that the neurons in the brain that have to do with sensations in the foot are relatively close to the neurons that have to do with sensations in the sexual areas. One theory is that the “couriers” in the nervous system gets crossed and that is why feet can be so erotic.
Speaking Point: Some researchers say that for some men, the smell of feet can be arousing. We are not talking about stinky feet but the natural odor of feet can act like pheromones.
Speaking Point: Some people have fetishes where in order to be fully aroused, they need to focus on one body part. Almost one third of all fetishes have to do with the feet. Again, this may be due to all of the above; a combination of the femininity of the feet including the curvature of the arch, the toes, etc. along with pedicured feet and the aforementioned neural explanations.
Speaking Point: One interesting psychological theory is that for some people, this attraction may come from when a child is really young, crawling around. They see their mother’s feet probably more than any other part of the body from that perspective. Thus, a foot can become associated with all the positive feelings of a nurturing mother. Sounds a little far out to me, but you never know!
