Miami's independent source of local news and culture. Alexi C. Cardona February 11, AM. Ready to get to what he came for, Omar guides a woman to a VIP booth and draws the black curtain behind him. Ten minutes later, he escorts her out and returns with another woman. As the night wears on, the rotation continues: one in, one out. The year-old student and auto parts salesman doesn't get to indulge his fantasies often, but tonight he's ready to get a little kinky and he doesn't care who sees.
Around 10 p. With house music blasting and colorful lights flashing, Omar gets inspired. He propositions the women for a foursome, to which they enthusiastically agree. The women lead him back into the VIP room, where he helps them slip off their high heels.
Omar says there's something hot about taking off a woman's shoes. Two size 12 feet cover his entire face, from his close-cropped hairline to his strong bearded jaw. By the end of the night, Omar will have "worshipped" the feet of almost every woman in the club, more than a dozen in all. Omar's fascination with women's feet is reflected in some of his earliest childhood memories. As young as age 4, he remembers his mom's friends propping their bare feet on the table when they would come over to his house.
Omar liked to stare at their soles and rub his face on them. He'd sometimes grab their feet, pull them underneath his shirt, and rub them on his belly. Two decades later, Omar is still obsessed with feet. He likes to massage them. He likes to kiss them. He likes to nibble on them. He likes to rub them all over his face, chest, stomach, and — if the situation permits — even his crotch.
That love is what drove him to the dimly lit, smoke-hazed club in a strip mall on a recent night in January. Miami Footnight, a monthly foot fetish party in South Florida, brings together models with beautiful feet and men who pay as much as several hundred dollars to lavish all kinds of attention on them. Tom Foot — who uses a fictitious surname — is the organizer and franchise owner of Miami Footnight.
Since March , he has helped make the local party a safe, judgment-free event where men can indulge their fantasies with women who enjoy having their feet "worshipped" — the term fetishists use to describe massaging, licking, tickling, nibbling, and just about any other kind of foot love. Some fetishists enjoy a vanilla sex life, and feet are like the hot fudge on top.
For others, their foot fetish is the most vanilla thing about them. Newbies who are nervous can pay the Footnight cover charge and be spectators until they're comfortable ing a session. No one is required to participate if they don't want to, but Tom encourages people to talk and explore their interests. Some of the women of Footnight are average girls-next-door with jobs, partners, and kids. Others are professional sex workers — exotic dancers, adult-film actresses, and dominatrixes. They call themselves goddesses because they are worshipped. Most were introduced to Tom online, at fetish events, or by other models.
Money is the obvious motivation for the women, and that's how it begins. Before a friend introduced her to the world of foot fetish parties, Savanah, like many people, thought feet were disgusting. Then, three years ago, she had her feet worshipped for the first time.
She learned about a side of herself she didn't know existed — a woman who felt empowered by having men at her feet. Footnight is geared toward men who want to worship female feet, but women and couples are also welcome. Paying a cover charge gets guests into Miami Footnight and provides access to, as Omar says, "an open buffet of sexy feet. Then the fun begins.
No nudity or sexual contact is allowed. Some guys simply want to massage feet and suck toes. Others like being trampled — literally walked all over — and otherwise dominated, like being gagged with a foot or kicked in the face. Omar appreciates larger feet, size 9 and above, with long toes and high arches. For Omar, Footnight is a place where he can have a good time with open-minded people who share the same interest. Many of the men have said they've experienced rejection and disgust from women who aren't interested in feet, but the people at Footnight just seem to get one another.
When Elvis Presley was a boy, he would make his mom tea and rub what he called her "little sooties" when she got home from work. As an adult, the King of Rock 'n' Roll reportedly liked to massage the feet and sometimes suck the toes of women he dated. Apparently, pretty feet were a requirement to date him. Filmmaker and actor Quentin Tarantino is known to have a foot fetish, and his movies include tons of foot shots.
Tarantino reportedly drank champagne from Thurman's stiletto once. Ricky Martin also has what he calls a "crazy foot fetish. Call it weird if you must, but sex researchers say feet are the most commonly fetishized nongenital body part. References to the beauty of footsteps, soles, and ankles abound in historical literature that predates the ancient Greek empire.
Hesiod, one of the earliest Greek poets and author of Aphrodite's birth story, wrote that the goddess of sexual love and beauty was born from the white foam produced when the titan Cronus severed his father Uranus' testicles and cast them into the sea. The story references the grass beneath her "shapely feet.
Male feet are also sexualized in ancient Greek artwork. Feet and phalluses were sometimes juxtaposed in vase paintings and pottery. Hephaestus, a god whose parents threw him off Mount Olympus because he was born with a disabled foot, married Aphrodite, who cheated on him. The researcher R. Caldwell wrote that Hephaestus' disability was tied to his impotence and sexual failure. Foot fetish lore has it that the ancient Roman governor Lucius Salvus Otho went to brothels to worship female feet. Suetonius, an ancient Roman historian, wrote that Roman politician Lucius Vitellius begged to remove an empress' shoes and carried her right slipper underneath his toga constantly and sometimes kissed it.
So why feet? Sigmund Freud had a theory, and, predictably, it involved penises. Freud wrote that the foot is "a very primitive sexual symbol" that resembles a phallus. Shoes and slippers, on the other hand, are thought to symbolize female genitalia. More recently, however, researchers have discovered a more scientific explanation. Ramachandran and science writer Sandra Blakeslee examined cases of male and female amputees who reported strong sensations or even orgasms in their phantom feet. They posit that in the sensory map of the brain, the genitals and the feet are right next to each other, possibly indicating a neural cross-wiring that can explain foot fetishism.
To date, there's been little large-scale research on fetishism, but it has mostly been studied in males. Pitagora says that could be because various forms of sexuality or sexual behavior are generally more accepted for men. People who identify as male are socialized to be "more freely sexual," Pitagora says, and because of that socialization, statistically more men than women would report a foot fetish.
The word "fetish" is generally used as a catch-all to describe a strong sexual fixation with a body part or object. What distinguishes a fetish from a turn-on, according to The Psychology of Human Sexuality , is that someone with a fetish tends to obsess over the object and focus on it exclusively. The fetish can eventually become necessary for arousal and orgasm and can even compete with or replace a partner.
Sex researchers believe fetishes are a multisensory sexual outlet, meaning the object of the fetish can be arousing because of how it looks, feels, smells, or tastes. Some men prefer large feet — size 10 and above — with long toes and high arches.
Others like smaller feet. Shoes, socks, stockings, and jewelry are icing on the cake — enticing but not always necessary for arousal. For many, fetishes originate during childhood. Some people can pinpoint strong, detailed memories from their youth that inform their understanding of their sexual preferences.
Pitagora says intense experiences become etched in the mind as flashbulb memories. You can have a salient sexual imprint from that memory and become attached to it emotionally and physically. Kids' brains aren't thinking about sex as sex, but their experiences form the basis of their "lovemap," a sort of blueprint for relationships and sexual desires.
But as people grow and their brains develop, more memories, context, and emotions are added to those salient imprints. That memory basically gets repurposed and fine-tuned. That becomes an iconic thing for people. Like Omar, several of the men of Footnight can pinpoint those childhood memories.Female foot worship
