My boyfriend has developed a foot fetish. He spends hours under the duvet, sucking my toes and licking my feet, but I’m there, sitting up and bored. I just don’t know how to steer him in the right direction.


–  Lick me not


Dear Lick Me Not:

Try putting your feet next to your crotch.  If he slips it’ll be a mistake you won’t regret.


Seriously, he’s admiring something beautiful about you, so take it for what it is—a compliment. 


You also need to take something else—control.  You’re sitting there bored when you could be exercising the sexual power you have over him. Tell him you worship your feet too and that your temple is located in the Kenneth Cole factory outlet.  Yes, make him buy you expensive shoes!  It’s only fair.  If he’s going to obsess over your feet they should be in something worth obsessing over!


The point is that you’re not going to get him to stop loving and ravishing your feet.  So you might as well make it as fun—and stylish–as possible. Learn how to do a “foot striptease” and have some fun with it.  Don’t run away from his fetish; run toward it.  By coming from a position of strength and accommodation you’ll have a better time and a husband more than happy to accommodate your needs.  What do you want him to do for you?  Sex is often about negotiating.  You do this for me and I’ll do this for you.  I call it, “Dick for Dat.”


This is a great opportunity to say, “Honey, it’s time for you to sweep me off my feet in a different way.”  Remember, always ask for what you want, not what you don’t want.  A request is easier to take than a complaint.  So make your requests and don’t be afraid to dangle your feet as an added incentive.
