Been lurking here for a while and finally decided to join in. Cool site! My girlfriend, who I've been with since early last summer, has a thing for me going barefoot, especially in public. One time I even let her talk me into leaving all of my shoes and socks at her apartment and going barefoot for a week (good thing I took off that quarter from school). Until then I don't think I had ever gone anywhere without my shoes and socks. It was a really weired feeling. I don't think twice about going lots of places without a shirt, but I felt naked those first few times I went somewhere barefoot. On that first walk through the mall I had a lot of anxiety. The funny thing is that she almost always wears her shoes but doesn't want me to wear mine. It's kind of a weird fettish, but I go along with it.
