Why?

It's out of control. Who's doing this?

Ok, it's Fr. night, I've worked 12 hours straight w/o lunch or dinner, and I don't get it.

I remember the very first time I ever saw a foot-fetish site on the Internet — it must have been around '96 or so — and being bewildered by it (especially by how fully-clothed women showing their feet and smoking would be extra-titillating), but suddenly understanding why this Internet thing would be Big.

I thought that I was old.

You don't have to be that old to have had a Compuserve account and remember NCSA Mosaic. And switching to Netscape, because inline graphics were *the* thing.

I'm not weirded out by foot fetishes, I'm weirded out by their SEO being artificially inflated by the Goog.
 
Spheric Harlot May 4, 2013 04:45 PM
I suspect that they aren't.
 
subego May 4, 2013 05:09 PM
Sure they are.

They've decided searches for other fetishes (sick and disgusting ones, like, say... boobs) aren't displayed in the auto-complete.
 
Spheric Harlot May 4, 2013 05:13 PM
Aren't those suggestions supposed to be a) the most common ones and b) optimized by your own previous search patterns, in that order?
 
subego May 4, 2013 05:15 PM
Yes.

I'm saying "_______ boobs" is a more popular string than "_______ feet".


Note: "boobs" probably isn't the exact word, but we know Goog can and does fold in synonyms like "ta-tas" and "butter bags".
 
Spheric Harlot May 4, 2013 05:23 PM
I actually doubt that. Don't only twelve-year-olds search for "boobs"?

But hey, I don't know. Up until five minutes ago, I had no idea who she was.
 
subego May 4, 2013 05:33 PM
I've found the women-folk prefer that term to the numerous alternates, but yes, people tend not to be as politic when they're asking a robot for hard-on material.

I'm hoping you haven't missed out on all the Cohen brothers movies she's been in.

FWIW, I wasn't looking for her boobs, or her feet. I was spell checking her name so I could refer to her uncommon lower lip structure.
 
Spheric Harlot May 4, 2013 06:15 PM
lower…lip…structure.

Uh-huh.

Suuuure.

I'm surprised. You should watch Fargo, she got an Oscar for it.
 
Spheric Harlot May 4, 2013 06:34 PM
Oh, I've seen her in movies.

I just don't do well with names, and this was one I never bothered picking up.

Absolutely. For me, Frances is the archetype for that lower lip thing she has. I call it the "Frances McDormand 'lip thing'".
 
subego May 4, 2013 06:51 PM
It's pretty darn distinctive:

I needed to spell it correctly in reference to Jodi Arias, who has it too.

I got you. You didn't get me. ;)
 
subego May 6, 2013 10:44 PM

On one hand, I'm happy to get results with no feet, but on the other, it makes me wonder just what exactly is so wrong with her feet no one is searching for them.

Are they that bad?

I congratulate subego on the most meaningless thread title of all time.

Don't think there is such a thing as a "foot fetish." I don't mean there aren't people who are really into feet, I just don't think it should be labelled as a fetish.

Everyone identifies eyes, legs, hair, and lower backs as sexually inspiring, but none of those things are sexual features, at least not any more so than feet.

And feet are inherently physically sensual, while eyes aren't. Gotten a sexual charge from an eye massage lately? Didn't think so.

I don't think it's strange that some people like feet, it's no different than people who like legs. What I don't understand are people who are revolted by feet. That's friggin' bizarre.

Feet are not sensual. NO! And I'm sorry to hear that you haven't been 'charged' by beautiful eyes. I have a colleague that I can spend hours looking at with no idea what she's saying to me. Someone told me the other day that she was too skinny, I had never taken any notice of any other part of her body except her eyes.

Feet are for walking. Legs are ....

I'd better stop now.

I love eyes like everyone else. They just don't respond well to touch, while feet definitely do.

Should Drew be mad her feet come up, or should Cameron be mad hers don't?

The eyes respond well when I touch ... certain places.

Feet are utilitarian. Attraction them is uncommon, hence the 'fetish' tag.

Just saw the line-up of the actors for Gatsby whatever. Well this came up when searching for one of the actresses :

I'm as perplexed as subego.

Wanna lose your fascination with all things marge: Watch Aeon Flux or whatever the hell that monstrosity is called. wow.

I think AF probably got me more into feet.

If you haven't received a foot-job, you haven't really lived.
 
mattyb May 16, 2013 11:47 AM
Does enjoying a foot-job equate to looking at photos of feet though?
 
subego May 16, 2013 01:40 PM
Does a nose job count?

Does it matter? Boob-fondling is way better than boob-looking, but boob-looking is still pretty great.

And I'm not sure people really look at photos of just feet. I think so-called "foot fetish" people just prefer the look of people without shoes on. Given how ridiculous some of the footwear that models or porn stars or strippers are seen in, it doesn't surprise me that some people have a strong distaste for any footwear in an ostensibly sexy setting.

We all saw The Avengers, and tons of people online made all these ridiculous accusations of Joss* Whedon having a foot fetish simply because Pepper Potts and Black Widow are seen without shoes at a couple of points. It just seems like a stupid thing to accuse someone of. (I guess this means fans of the Hulk also have a foot fetish?)

*thanks subego
 
subego May 16, 2013 02:05 PM
Joss Whedon.

I'm wondering why "frances mcnamera" shows up between "frances mcdormand" entries... that doesn't make sense to me at all.
