Nothing creepy to see here. Just a pair of silicone feet chilling with a glass of vino and a pearl necklace.
Some nights I don’t get a lot of sleep thanks to the bizarre Internet rabbit holes that I am constantly digging through. For instance, just last night I decided to plug the words “foot fetish” into Google to see what might come from that, and of course I wasn’t disappointed, though I was thoroughly creeped out after discovering that you can buy terrifyingly realistic looking feet made of silicone. So now you never have to try to talk someone into letting you get kinky with their actual real feet, which was not what I was expecting. At all.
Don’t get me wrong—I fully support whatever your own personal idea of sexy time is as long as you’re not fucking with someone’s mind or body parts in a way that makes them unhappy. I also get that a lot of people don’t really get turned on by the idea of their feet being a desirable body part to put in someone else’s mouth, but hey, you be you and just do what gets you off without hurting anyone, including yourself. The end. That said, I honestly JUST CAN’T with these faux feet. I CAN’T. Perhaps it’s because they are so very lifelike and are photographed in a freaky (literally) disembodied fashion that just gets under my skin. It could also be the fact that they come in a variety of styles such as “long toe,” “big feet,” or a “ballerina/dancer” version which sees the fake flippers enhanced by the appearance of reddish-looking skin on the heels, and foot pad from wear and tear. Then there are the often disturbing pictorials taken by fake-foot vendors like a pair of feet chilling out alongside a glass of wine or perhaps enjoying a sudsy bath.
Maybe it’s due to a lack of quality zzz’s but this discovery was like Dr. Hannibal Lecter terror-level for me, and I honestly couldn’t believe that there was a market for them. This notion I also blame on sleep deprivation because of course there’s a market for real looking imitation feet. If you’re more of a leg man (or woman), you can also purchase the feet with legs attached if that’s something you’d be into. Anyway, if this is your kind of thing you can find plenty of real as fuck looking pairs of fake feet on eBay for anywhere from $100 to several hundred dollars. Loads of images follow, none of which are going to help you get any sleep tonight either, so be forewarned.
I don’t even know if I can legitimately say that these photos are NSFW because I’m so confused by this unsettling revelation, but I’m guessing that unless you work in some sort of kinky foot factory they probably aren’t that safe to let your co-workers in on.
