Fenichel, The Psychoanalytic Theory of Neurosis 1946 p. I'm also into female dominance, during which feet can be used in many ways, but that's a different story. However, I contend that the plantarflexed 1st rays, ankle joint equinus's, lig laxities, claw toes etc etc are normal, or variations of normal, and only cause problems when footwear is worn, and when the foot is used to ambulate or stand on an alien surface in terms of what the original design was meant for, which was a mixture of terrains. Man A: I actually hate having my feet touched and played with. They have to be pretty, and taken care of. Man C: I'm mostly interested in other people's feet. Later on she will notice you always look at them and start to question.
Depending on how he likes to experience his fetish, feel free to indulge him as much as you like. Now that I'm accustomed to it, it's just one more aspect of our sex life and I've become more aware of the sensuality that feet can have. However, if you're an interesting, well-balanced guy who happens to like feet, fine. Just act nervous enough that your partner will see that you really care about what she thinks. As you will see, some of these functions appear to be opposites. Our contention has been that the definition of normal so frequently assumed is as per Root yet the evidence of this is virtually negligable so why base a whole science on it and all that follows.
Smoking is a know cause of cancer. Or try wearing your favorite high heels and nothing else to bed. Prescriptions are not always full proof and need tweeking. Effective treatment of symptomatic feet is, perhaps unwittingly, directed at making them work more efficiently in footwear, on hard, flat surfaces. Right On, DavidH Hi David, Right On! Would his gait would be different if he was running on a mixture of terrains, with some soft ground thrown in? If you want to tell your partner about your foot fetish and get the best results, then you have to wait for the perfect time -- when you know each other a little better.
I always look at his feet whether we are outside or in the house. Here's a better understanding, so we don't start hopping on the sexual norm wagon in the Internet era. Cheers Dave Smith As a biomechanist to see him run would make you cringe, feet at almost quater to three, fully plantargrade, and wide, knees abducted gait. If they fail to fit the new theory must adequately explain why 5. For example, if someone is a voyeur then, by definition, he is spying on others without their consent. If they seem like an open person and we are having an open conversation about sexual interests, I'll just say that I am into feet.
Sometimes they bring their orthoses in, sometimes they are beautiful Root-type orthoses. The latter will always be reductionist, by virtue of it construction which is constrained by what we know. What we do clinically works, but not by trying to do what we think we are doing. And for research purpose, where people affected with overuse injuries are compared with people with no injuries, this is somewhat the best, at least the most practicable criterion to use. Cameron Far be it from disagreeing with you, but I think we may have two separate aspects; the normal foot as in society; and the concept of a functioning foot model.
Ramachandran has noted amputees reporting orgasms in their feet. Craig et al Whilst, Newton Rools, this is only a narrow interpretation of the universe and all who sail in her. That's not necessarily a bad thing though — it prolongs the physical pleasure. Ie a normal foot for the western shoed society may be considered abnormal for an unshoed society 2. Luke Grainger A Thread of Pure Quality!!! I love it when that happens.
I would say no its perfectly normal to do this but in the process the internal forces may be excessive. I don't think we evolved for life on a hard flat surface. To follow this maxim would frustrate because nothing is ever shown to be consitent. In clinical practice one is not able to measure internal forces and the stress and strain on a particular tissue is unknown. I don't mind at all! Today, a more scientific theory comes from the neuroscientist Vilanayar Ramachandran, director of the Center for Brain and Cognition at the University of California, San Diego. Who, what, where, when and maybe even why? Aden Laboratory, Rouen University Hospial, Biomedical Research Institute, Rouen, France. If I hadn't known him since he was at school and he came into my clinic unknown he would be straight into a pair of orthoses because as you have said David I would assume he must be getting microtrauma that was building up trouble for the future.
Though your foot fetish may be something you've had for years and seems perfectly normal to you, you should be considerate of your partner. However, I don't think that tissue stress is the best way to define normalcy in the foot of the human. However does the foot that has 70% of the weight bearing foot on the pronation side of the axis need to be treated or should we wait until symptoms develop? This is one of those metaphysical meta-podiatric questions that philosophers in the profession and in other disciplines have been contemplating for many a moon. Academic studies on the prevalence and membership of fetish discussion groups have found that feet and foot accessories are the most fetishized of all non-genital body parts and objects. . Establishing these normal ranges for structure and function will have a huge effect on research in that it will narrow down the inclusion criteria for research subjects to include only individuals that are not only asymptomatic but also have a normal range of foot and lower extremity structure and function.
Hi All, I know that this Thread is far from completed in discussion but I feel strongly compelled to complement the writers here, writing a professionally well thought out Thread couched in experience no doubt. Welcome to the Podiatry Arena forums You are currently viewing our podiatry forum as a guest which gives you limited access to view all podiatry discussions and access our other features. For James, he hasn't yet found a woman truly open and accepting of it, unlike Jessie who thinks everyone should be open to date one. These of course are a comparatively new concept and would have followed the horse and horseless carriage. You can worship her feet, which includes kissing, licking, massaging them, sucking her toes, smelling them — if you're into that.
I like the look of feet, especially the instep and the soles. I might suggest a slightly different sense of normal. It should be intuitive that tissues get damaged by force and not motion or position of the foot; ie excessive pronation is a motion -- how can that motion actually do damage? If anyone knows of any articles which have been published in medical journals which statistically substantiate that orthoses prevent bunions, patellofemoral problems or back problems I said prevent, not treat , would you kindly cite these articles? In addition, this normal foot should enable the individual to gradually adapt, under reasonably accelerating circumstances, to desired overuse activities within the obvious restrictions of their foot and body type. I wouldn't dare add a pair of orthoses to this guys shoes even though everything about his posture scream abnormal, but its quite normal for him. The muscles and tendons work together with the bones, ligaments and joints of the foot to accomplish these goals.
