Dear Mistress Maeve,

I was in a wedding last month, and all the bridesmaids got pedicures. I don't usually do anything special to my feet, and when I got home, my boyfriend was so turned on by the pink polish on my toes. At first, I was a little embarrassed by how strongly he reacted, and I think he even surprised himself. Not to be too graphic, but the next few times we had sex, he paid a lot of attention to my feet. I didn't find it hot, per se, but I guess I was happy that he was turned on. Now the polish is starting to wear off, and he has asked if he can paint my toes. I want to let him do it, but there's a part of me that wonders if this is just weird. Truth be told, I'm sort of happy to have the extra attention. Is it strange or crazy for a guy to be so into feet?

Playing Footsies


Dear Playing Footsies,

Many of us paint our toenails not because we find our feet attractive but because we think most feet are gross. Between calluses, hammertoes, blisters and bunions, how could anyone find feet sexy, right? Well, they do — by the millions. estimates that a half a million people in the United States have a fetish for feet, and it sounds like your boyfriend is one of them.

Be proud of yourself for not immediately rejecting your beau's request to fawn over your feet. Let's put this in perspective: He's asking to give you a pedicure — not to perform a risky sex act that puts you in harm's way. Plus, it sounds like you're enjoying the added adoration, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Surprise your guy by picking up a few sassy nail polish colors — he'll be thrilled to pick the pigment. If you want to get really fancy, ask him to prepare a foot bath and allow him to wash your feet before the painting begins. Of course, you'll want to have your sexiest peep-toe shoes at the ready for when the job is done — that is, if you make it out of the bedroom.

Waiting on you hand and foot,
