Foot Fetishes or Podophilia, it's a real thing!

Let's be real, of all the body parts that is used in sexual foreplay, feet are often overlooked but are you really surprised that feet are associated in flirting and mating? (Anyone play footsies with you? That's the equivalent body language to a wink.)

If you're familiar with the cortical sensory homunculus, which depicts a neurological map of the body to the brain, the sensory of the toes is right next to the genitals. Maybe this explains why there is a whole community out there with love for beautiful feet. (Estimated 5-15% of the population, although not much study has been done on this.)

If you know someone with a foot fetish, or you have one yourself, then you know good foot health is critical, just like good oral hygiene is to a quality and memorable kiss, right? 

As the weather is warming up, it's that time to prime your feet for sandals and maybe even as a nonvocal flirting call (wink wink!). So if you have some minor flaws in your foot health, no worries, podiatrists can treat a lot of foot problems including: toenail or foot fungus, warts, moles, wounds, overly sweaty or smelly feet, bunions, hammertoes, to name a few.
