Is it okay to have a feet fetish?

Recommended Posts

Hello, so I was recently wondering whether an asexual person can still experience fetishes such as with feet, including touching them smelling them and perhaps... tasting them. The thought of that makes me feel good but not in a sexual way at all, just it makes me feel good. I consider myself homoromantic asexual. But I’m not sure if after confronting this fetish I am not considered asexual anymore? It is just hard to explain to an average person in person, so I’m just very confused, if anyone has any input on this matter.

Yes, asexuals can have fetishes, they just can't desire sex with anyone. Here's a list of things that don't invalidate your asexuality.

I'd say I'm homoromantic asexual too but I have a foot fetish as well and it doesn't bother me - again each person is different and we have our own ways of defining ourselves within this

 

And it really does feel good when you're with someone who enjoys it as much as you do

I think it's perfectly normal! I see nothing wrong with it. (:

Sure, many folks do.

I don't personally, but I'm a kinkster so I'd definitely say asexuality and fetishism aren't mutually exclusive.

If the fetish isn't desired for your or your partner's sexual arousal, then yes, it's an asexual fetish.

As for how to explain it to others, maybe like BDSM in that it's not always a sexual thing either; they can do it just for the enjoyment too. Maybe Google non-sexual BDSM for a better reply. Some people do include fetishist in their orientation though. I think "fetishist homoromantic ace" or just "homoromantic fetishist" sounds the least clunkey.

Perfectly fine and more common than many think.  Foot worship is a common non-sexual theme, something that may or may not lead into any sexual motive.

I see foot fetish as kinda non sexual but either way it doesn't invalidate you. I like the idea of far more sexual fetishes than that and I know I'm still an ace.

It's not something I personally understand, but to each their own.

I like feet too, in a totally non-sexual way... massaging feet, touching other people's feet with my feet, they are simply so cute :)
