in summary: I became shy to be barefoot when I was a child (earliest memory of this is about 8 years old) during my teen years, I realised I was turned on by feet (foot fetish) for years I tried to find the answer about the psychology of this all, and I have never told anyone about this. I am now in my 30s, married with 2 kids. I used to get a thrill by secretly going out in flip flops, exposing my feet. I guess psychologically, it was like going out naked. anyways, I went to a health spa, had to spend the whole day barefoot. first time I have ever done such a thing. surprisingly, it felt natural, I didn't feel like it stood out, and it felt ok as everyone else was doing it. I realised that I was not sexually excited by this anymore, I felt normal. I know as time goes on, I will feel those old feelings again, but I think I just need to get my release somehow, be barefoot around other people. I don't want to all of a sudden be barefoot all the time etc, that would be out of character. this is my experience thoughts?
