Q: You are generous with the free photos you post online via mechanisms such as Facebook, but you also sell foot related clips of yourself. Has this blossomed into a career for you now, or do you still have a so-called ‘day job’?
A: I’m actually a licensed Funeral Director, and have been working in the funeral industry for about 14 years. I have cut back on my day job now, as I’ve become very busy with my online lifestyle! I do love both jobs, although I really don’t consider my ‘foot fetish’ a job, it’s just a part of who I am that I enjoy sharing.
Q: Do you remember if there was any sort recognition or discovery of your own foot hedonism or has it simply always been a natural part of who you are?
A: Yes, I do have very vivid memories of being attracted to feet as a child and my earliest memories are of women’s feet in high heels – red polish was always a favorite back then. My grandmother had a beautiful collection of heels in her closet and she dressed up every day. I loved playing in there, trying on her heels, daydreaming. Back then I think it was more curiosity, it wasn’t until I was in my teens that I discovered the intense sexual component.
Q: You love feet and clearly enjoy playing with, showing off and modeling your own, do you also enjoy looking at clips or photos of other women’s feet (e.g. from a professional sense, or do you find it sexy, what are your thoughts on women’s feet in general, e.g. do you admire a particular size/shape?
A: Oh yes!! I’ve always been quite fascinated by other women’s feet, from a young age as I mentioned earlier. I definitely have a ‘type’ that I find myself drawn to. I prefer a longer toenail, not to an extreme, but to me that little bit of length definitely ‘fetishizes’ (if that’s a word!) the foot. I’m attracted to well groomed feet, something that drives me crazy is cracked heels, I just want to put some lotion on them whenever I see it! lol I also find darker colored varnish very sexy. Although I have a thing for college girls who have french pedis and flip flops on. I love that! I don’t think there’s a particular size that I prefer, I wear a size 9 heel and I’ve seen some beautiful petite feet as well as large. My best friend has adorable feet, I’ve always loved them, ever since high school. Her toes are very petite, and a little bony, but she takes excellent care of them. As far as a preference for bare feet or nylons. I don’t think I could choose one over the other. A woman’s foot, beautifully encased in a pair of nylons is absolutely breathtaking. That always stops me in my tracks when I’m out. When it comes to bare feet, fresh out of a pair of sweaty socks and sneakers, that scent is pure heaven to me. Wearing nylons all day with a pair of leather pumps, that is also an intoxicating combination!
Q: You are in a relationship now, does your partner enjoy women’s feet? Was he a foot lover before you met or is this something that has blossomed with his involvement with you?
A: get this question a lot! lol My partner definitely enjoys my feet, but he definitely didn’t have a foot fetish before I met him. We’ve discussed it before, and although he is turned off by un-kept feet, he doesn’t look at a women’s feet the way I do. Not having a foot fetish isn’t a deal-breaker for me in a relationship, as long as the person is open-minded and willing to explore it. My fetish is just one aspect of our partnership.
I certainly wouldn’t want my feet to be the focal point of my relationship.
Q: Without worrying about what others might find attractive, what would you choose for your toes, feet and legs if you were dressing up to feel drop dead gorgeous?
A:For me, fully fashioned nylons are always a perfect choice for dressing up and feeling sexy. A Manhattan heel cap is my favorite. I do still prefer a bold red varnish on my toes, and very high heels, open toe of course!
Q: Coming into contact with many different folks as you do, have you ever received a request for a conversation or a photo shoot that would be a deal-breaker or no-go for you?
A: So far, I have only received one request that I could not fulfill, and that had nothing to do with foot fetishism, it was more of a request for a different fetish, one that I did not share. I just cannot do something that I am not passionate about, and I won’t pretend either. I think my fans appreciate the fact that I am open and honest about my preferences and what turns me on.
Q: You use your own name and don’t hide your face, is it common knowledge amongst friends and family that you love feet and enjoy modeling your own? Have you had/do you have problems having to explain yourself to people sometimes who don’t understand the love of female feet?
A: Lol Oh yes, everyone knows! Even my co-workers, luckily they’re very accepting and we can joke around at work about it. I think that is probably because of the line of work I’m in. We try to keep things light-hearted and fun. It’s also important to me that others see my true face, and that I don’t feel the need to hide my fetish. It’s nothing to be ashamed about. I like to show the world a face of foot fetishism that they’re not expecting. We are regular people, your neighbors, teachers and friends.
Q: A little known activity of yours is selling your used pantyhose, stockings and socks, can you tell us a little about why you think this is popular with the purchasers?
A: I think my personal items are popular because it is the ultimate extension of the fantasy, a part of me that they can touch, that’s very real and very intimate. I am aware that individuals who do not share in my fetish may find this ‘gross’ or unappealing, but for a fellow fetishist, it is VERY erotic and extremely sexual. I genuinely love wearing my socks and pantyhose, often I will wear them while working out at the gym, or to work. It’s actually quite a turn on for me, wearing a pair of stockings to work, knowing that my co-workers have no idea what I’m planning to do with them! lol
Q:What do you like to do that is not related to foot hedonism – I noticed you mentioned comics on your Facebook page, can you tell us a little more about things you enjoy doing?
A: Yes, I do have a few other hobbies, one is collecting Adult Comics, I collected comics as a child, and I’m still very passionate about collecting, except now it’s mostly adult titles. I’m a big fan of Giovanna Casotto, Franco Saudelli, Erich Von Gotha, Gene Bilbrew, Eric Stanton, and others in that genre.
Q: If I waved a magic wand and said you had a million dollars to spend in a year doing exactly what you wished, what would you buy and where would you go?
A: Oooh, that’s a tough question! I would definitely travel, probably back to Mexico for a while, I love the beach. I would spend my days relaxing, swimming, reading comics, long walks. I’d probably host a fabulous foot party, and hire a personal masseuse for foot massages! I would indulge in silk stockings, lingerie and heels, spend more time with the people I love.
Thank you so much Karyn, it was a delight getting to know you.
