Joey's Interview (Joey's Feetgirls)


"I absolutely love when one girl uses her hand to rub and slap my cock on the other girl's feet."

Whenever I wander upon interracial foot fetish material, I take notice. And although the subject of this month's interview, Joey of Joey's Feetgirls, didn't intentionally set out to combine these two popular genres of adult content, it's what made me take notice initially. After browsing through some of his clips and reading some of what he had to say about his work, I thought Joey would make for a great interview here on the Wu's Feet Links Interviews Blog. I ended up being right!

I've only exchanged a handful of emails and personal messages with Joey so far, but the guy is super approachable. He's had his work online, in some form or fashion for 14 years and counting. He's no stranger to Wu's Feet Links either, and that is where we began our dialogue. Even all these years later, Wu's is still a great place to meet people and get to know them. I'm glad to say Joey is one of my newer acquaintances. I'm also going to be the first to admit, I'm highly jealous of a lot of his adventures - especially the ones with his girlfriend, Josie, who is a star of many of his videos. Maybe, just maybe I'll get to interview her for a future installment here too! For now, however, let's learn a little more about Joey, his views on the fetish, and just how he's come (or is that cum?) across so many female feet!

Introduction & Interview by: Patrick (solesofsilk.com) 

Some of the Basics

You have obviously shot a lot of different women in your work. When it comes to their shoe size, do you have any preferences on bigger vs. smaller feet?
I just asked this question on Twitter not long ago. I actually have a preference for small feet but, just like my opinion on women's bodies, shape matters more than size. I'll take a soft curvy 10 over a plain Jane 5 any day.

I've seen some wild pedicures in your videos, namely Josie's Skittles toes. What are some of your favorite polish colors for women's toes?
I'm actually pretty boring when it comes to colors. Red is my favorite, but I do like french tips too.

Off camera, what type of footwear do you like seeing on a woman's feet? Any particular favorites?
I like two types of shoes. While in public, I like any shoe that looks like its easy to take off - particularly anything backless from mules to clogs to flip flops. I love to see a girl in public with her soles showing under her chair. Also, I like shoes that girls wear barefoot such as heels, flats or Toms. These shoes have a tendency to make the feet smell, so I like seeing them just because of the association. These shoes are often easy to remove as well.

My preference is for soles, although I do adore the rest of a woman's feet. What part(s) are your favorite? Why?
I'm a sole guy. Soft feet, wrinkles, high arches, all in that order. I've noticed that different skin textures produce different types of wrinkles and a lot of times you can tell the texture of the skin by inspecting the wrinkles. Thin, fine creases are probably my most favorite as they are generally associated with the softest skin. Tougher skins tend to have deep thick creases.

If you could have any two female celebrities in a video with you, footjob of course, who are you picking?
Like real celebrities? To be honest I've never had much of a celebrity fantasy. I know I've always had a thing for Britney Spears' feet, and I guess Jennifer Aniston's feet, even though I've never seen a good picture of her soles. I remember an episode of Friends where she was excited over the thought of having her toes sucked. Now, foot models or girls in foot porn? That list is endless.

Discovering the Fetish

Do you remember how old you were when you first began to notice female feet?
Man, I was super young. I was already attracted to feet by age 7 or so. I remember the first time I mentioned wanting a girl's feet when I was 7 or 8 and my older brother was like, "What? Her feet?"

What were those initial feelings like? Did they make you feel strange, like so many others have when they first began discovering their attraction?
Nah, I embraced it from the beginning. By the fifth grade or so I was already touching myself while I fantasized about my teachers. I had more than one that would have their shoes off while in class.

Can you remember the first time you had access to female feet? What was it like? Were you nervous and did the female know you had a fetish?
There was a couple of times when I was younger that I perved out to some of my cousins' feet before I knew any better. But my first time really getting specific foot action was in high school with a girl I still shoot with to this day. Her name is Reesha and I was very open with her about the whole ordeal. The two of us were also friends with another girl who would let me indulge every once in awhile as well. By the time I was a junior in high school, I had a girl in almost every class that knew about me and feet and would show off to me every once in awhile.

As you have gotten older, in what ways have your feelings toward your fetish either changed or grown?
I'm not sure if anything has changed. I've pretty much completely understood what I like about my fetish from the start.

Filming & the Internet

You've been online for a number of years now, in one way or another. When did you first begin posting foot fetish content on the web?
My very first start was about 14 years or so ago. I tried to build my own website called Sole Photoes and it was a mess and a half. This was long before the days of YouTube and other media sites that make it easy to upload content. I had a cheap web page making program and really the whole page looked terrible.

What made you decide to begin posting your foot fetish content online and where were some of your initial hot spots, if you will, to show off that work?
I always wanted to give back to the foot community. I had discovered foot fetish material online about age 14 or so and I always wanted to go out and give people what I've always enjoyed seeing. I'm sure way deep down in the contributions section on Wu's Feet Links you'll find a couple postings from me from 10 years ago. 

What really got the ball rolling, was the combination of both YouTube and smartphones. I had high definition video recording literally in my pocket and a quick easy way for me to upload and get views. I got 15k views or something on a video and was bragging to my friends about it when they decided they wanted to be famous YouTube foot models too. That's when things took off for me.

Where you inspired by anyone else online at the time to begin posting your work?
Not so much inspired by anyone in particular, as I just always had the desire to showcase girls feet. I do, however, wish I had the skills that FairAdam (Feet Fair) has. I want to be like him when I grow up!

How long has your clips store, Joey's Feetgirls, been online now?
Just over four years now.

What made you decide to open up a clips store?
I literally had people emailing me asking why I was giving so much content for free. They were like, "You're shooting good stuff. You should charge people for that!" I actually had no real plans to monetize. I dragged my feet about it for months. The thing that ultimately got me to move to a clip store was that YouTube kept deleting my ever popular foot pages that were being flagged as inappropriate. After building up my views for the second time, I gave up.

How has the fan reaction to your work been over the years, up until now?
I've gotten everything from harsh criticism to people who call me a legend. For the most part it's positive though. I have a handful of fans that talk to me directly on a regular basis. I'll entertain most anyone who wants to shoot the shit for awhile.

If you could say anything to all those who have supported you over the years, what would it be?
An obvious thank you. I love the job and the fans make it so much better. It makes me feel like I'm doing the right thing.

Your site focuses a lot on footjobs and you've had a lot of different women giving them. Do you know how many different pairs of feet you've have around your cock, or have you lost count?
Oh god. I've lost count. A couple years ago I tried to remember and add up all the girls I've been with my whole life. Footjobs was already at about 120 at that time. Could easily be at 150-plus by now.

How do you find all these women that appear in your work?
Everywhere. Leave no stone unturned. Lately we've taken to Instagram and have been trying to collaborate with any foot models on there who are interested. The overall list includes girlfriends, fuck buddies, friends, friends of friends, girlfriends of friends, coworkers, to literally random girls. Sometimes it's free and they do it for fun. Most of the time, however, I have to sponsor for their time, their pedicure, and willingness to be on camera.

Is it safe to assume that many of the women who shoot with you are giving their first ever footjob? Do you enjoy taking their "footjob virginity," if you will?
Oh yeah. A vast majority of the girls have never even met a guy with a foot fetish, much less used their feet for sex. Honestly, it's a pretty simple task and there's not much skill difference between the brand new and the experienced. Every once in awhile you get a natural though and they just have some innate cock pleasing abilities.

Josie appears in a lot of your videos and you even mention her in your Clips4Sale store's introduction. Who is she exactly – other than the obvious footjob artist?
Oh, she's my girlfriend!

I've only ever had two womens' feet down below once in my life, but you seem to have that experience quite often. How are multi-woman footjobs different than the one-on-one footjobs I'm sure most of us are used to?
Well, its great in the sense that you don't have to help much at all. With all the feet and hands, you don't have to do any of the work yourself unless you really want to. I absolutely love when one girl uses her hand to rub and slap my cock on the other girl's feet.

I saw you have had a three woman footjob when looking through your videos. Is that the most you've had in one session, or do you have even grander tales that I did not see?
Yeah, three girls was it, and it was only that one time. I do want to set another one up, but it gets hectic. Scheduling all three girls to be in the same place at the same time and then deciding the best position to fit three girls in at once...

Having so many different feet give you footjobs, do you know what the biggest and the smallest have been when it comes to shoe size?
Yes, actually. I have an old friend that's legally a midget. I think shes 4'9" or something and wears child size shoes. Then you have Josie, who is a whole foot taller at 5'10" and a size 10-11, which is on the upper end of girl's feet. I actually have a couple videos of them together and the difference is staggering.

One thing I also love about your work is the interracial aspect. I enjoy the interracial genre of adult content just about as much as my foot fetish itself, so seeing them combined is certainly a treat. Do you have anyone else who has also expressed their love of that aspect of your work?
Yeah. See, I'm a mixed guy and interracial is just normal to me. When I'm, say, uploading content, I don't even think to categorize it as such. Someone was recently telling me that I have hot interracial scenes and I'm like, "Oh wow, it is interracial, isn't it?"

Where do you see your content and store going in the future?
Well, this year I picked up a DSLR and I've been really enjoying the photography. I've actually been building up a ton of content because we plan to open a website soon that will feature twice a week photo albums. I've been shooting models like crazy all summer!

Is there anything you'd like to share, or mention, before we wrap up this interview?
Josie and I are very open and we love to meet fans and models! Don't be afraid to speak up if you want to meet. We travel a few times a year and always try to get in touch with fans and models when we're out of town, as well as anytime when we're home in Chicago.

Hal's Interview (Toes In Action)



"I simply love seeing women walking barefoot through the city, being totally carefree and leaving their shoes at home."


For years I've been an active member on the Wu's Feet Links Forum and have gotten to know a number of other webmasters in the foot fetish community. One such person has been Hal, the photographer and webmaster of Toes-in-Action

Like me, Hal began his site in the early 2000's after running a free site in the years prior. His work was something I've admired from the first time I saw it. Beautiful models, bright colors, and unique settings are just a few of the reasons why I can't wait to see what Hal is posting next. These are all aspects of my own photography as well, so it's great seeing someone else's work who does many of those same things. Hal really does some great work.

In addition to his photography skills, one thing I have to say up front is that Hal is, and always has been, a personable guy! Never once have I had a bad interaction with him. He's been a great help with keeping up with the forums after Wu's passing and is always willing to assist in any way possible. Because of that, I have been wanting to approach him about taking part in an interview for some time now. As I figured he would be, Hal was more than happy to take part.

Thanks for taking some time out of your schedule to do this interview, Hal. It's funny how we've never really talked about any of these things in all of the conversations that we've had over the years. It was fun getting a little glimpse of how you grew up dealing with your fetish and, in later years, opened up Toes-in-Action and grew it into the site that it is today.

Introduction & Interview by: Patrick (solesofsilk.com) 

Some of the Basics

When it comes to female feet, the reason why we're all here reading this interview, do you have any size preferences? Do you like them bigger? Smaller? Does size not matter?
I do have a weakness for large, slender feet with longish toes, but I have also seen many small feet that I found to be stunningly beautiful. So size is not really an issue as long as the feet are attractive.

Do you have a favorite part of a woman's foot?
For me, the most exciting part of a woman’s feet are toes with nice, large nail beds and slightly longish nails. If they are sporting a perfect pedicure along with some foot jewelry I'm very happy. I also like soles a lot - be it clean and soft, or dirty from having walked barefoot.

I've always loved the colorfulness of your photography. When it comes to color, what are some of your favorite colors to see a woman's toes painted?

Thanks a lot, Patrick. Yes, I love perfectly pedicured toes - especially red, pink and dark colors such as purple, dark blue and even black. When I started becoming more seriously interested in feet in the 1980's, there were only a few colors on the market, mainly shades of red. Nowadays there seems to be every color under the sky available, which is great in my opinion. Amazing tones such as neon-pink, black with silver sparkles, brown with a shade of gray, mint-green, sparkly turquoise... I love all those crazy new nail polishes.

When it comes to footwear, what kinds of shoes do you enjoy to see pair of sexy feet trapped in?
My favorite way to see female feet is without shoes - women walking barefoot outdoors will always be on top of the list. If I had to choose a shoe, I would probably say flip flops because they show almost the entirety of the tops of the feet and the toes are completely visible.

How about things like socks and stockings – do you have any interest in them as well?
I can understand how stockings and nylons can look sexy, but I prefer bare feet.

You've shot a lot of models, but if you could shoot any two famous women, whether they be actors, athletes, or any other kind of celebrity, who would you pick?

That is quite a difficult question because I personally prefer girl-next-door type of women - the kind of women that you see when you walk down the street and whom you can talk to. I have never really fantasized about celebrities apart from some harmless daydreams in my early childhood. 


I am quite into science fiction movies, so if I had to choose two celebrities I would go with Linda Grey, in her Buck Rogers days, and Carrie Fisher, in her early Star Wars days. Virginia Madsen, as Princess Irulan in the 1984 version of Dune would also be pretty cool. I’ve never seen their feet before, but shooting a barefooted Princess Leia would be pretty awesome!

Discovering the Fetish

Do you remember about how old you were when you first began to take notice of women's feet?
My earliest childhood memories actually involve feet. I've been interested in female feet since my kindergarten time when I was around three to four years old. I remember it becoming stronger when I started visiting regular school. I grew up in South Africa and it was common for girls to walk around barefoot in the classroom, in fact, the school encouraged it. Even female teachers would sometimes walk around barefoot in class. It was a dream for me but also quite distracting when trying to concentrate on the lessons.

What were some of those earliest thoughts like?
I didn't really have an explanation for my preference of feet and during my childhood and preteen years. I never talked to anyone about it because I was a little ashamed of it. I kept it to myself until I was about 17 years old and had my first serious relationship. She was the first person whom I could freely speak to about my love for female feet.

How long afterward did it take you to realize there was something called a foot fetish? Did you views change afterward once you learned that there are others who also love women's feet?

The first time I heard the word fetish, and realized that I had one myself, was when one of my teachers explained the term to the class. We were reading a book that mentioned the word "fetish" in one chapter. Unfortunately, my teacher made it sound like a horrible, sick psycho-perversion that will eventually drive you crazy. 


At first I was pretty much shocked about what I had just heard and thought there was something fundamentally wrong with me. Reading up the term "fetish" in psychology books in our school library didn’t help much, as those articles sounded just as bad as my teacher. This was all before the internet – in the late 1980's. Fortunately, I soon realized that there was nothing wrong with me or with having a foot fetish - especially when I met my first girlfriend who was very open minded. 

The first time I noticed that there were more people into female feet was when I visited the UK with my girlfriend and we found a copy of Leg Show Magazine and Footsy Magazine, a British foot fetish mag. This must have been in the early to mid 1990's. These magazines were truly a revelation to me. I looked at them dozens of times and read the articles over and over again. 

Do you remember your first experience with female feet? Care to share some details of what that first time was like?
I was already attracted to feet at a very young age, so I don't really remember my very first experiences or thoughts. One thing I do remember well was at around the age of 10, when I slept over at a female friend's house. She was a little older than me and I had seen her barefoot lots of times, but this time I was suddenly very strongly attracted to her feet. Something had changed in my head, it was as if a switch had been turned. I remember her letting me touch her feet. Nothing much happened because I was still a little ashamed and we were just childhood friends, but I guess you could call it my first real foot experience.

As you've grown older, can you describe how your views toward your foot fetish have changed from those early days? What has caused them to change, if they have?
When I was younger I was quite confused and a little ashamed of my foot fetish, but since I started running the website I have become very bold and open about it, not just in my relationship but also in everyday life. All my friends know about my love for female feet and we also talk about it on a regular basis. Unfortunately none of them share this passion, but that's okay. 


I was lucky enough to meet a few cool foot lovers in real life and was especially privileged to become friends with the great Feetosopher from Italy. He runs Barefoot Urban Girls and Barefoot Nudity, and is a regular contributor to Wu’s Feet Links. Every time we hung out I had a really big confidence boost - it is great being able to share your views and experiences with another intelligent, like-minded person who happens to also be a photographer and webmaster.

[Editor's Note: Read The Feetosopher's Interview from March 2016.]

Filming & the Internet

What year did you begin posting foot fetish content online?

This must have been around the year 2000. I went out and bought an Olympus Camedia C-900 digital camera. It was a little camera with 1.3 megapixel and cost a whopping 1000 Deutschmark. I was in heaven because now I had the ability to shoot photos of female feet without having to get them developed in a store. 


I immediately took pictures of my girlfriend's beautiful feet and then published them online. I had no knowledge of web design, but I built a little rudimentary website with the help of Netscape Composer. I steadily filled it with free content and we got a lot of positive feedback, so I expanded the site and made it look a little more professional and called it Rise-to-your-Feet. Some of the people reading this may remember my old website. That was when I started getting in touch with a lot of other webmaster and models from the early days of the internet, mainly people from the USA. 

Wu's Foot Forum was a big help, as were some other small forums and those old Yahoo! Groups. We started exchanging photo sets and talked about our fetish online. People were sending requests and my girlfriend was getting a lot of compliments via email. It was an exciting time!

Were you into photography prior to that? If so, what kinds of photography were you into?
In the late 1980's my father gave me his old Minolta camera and I sometimes shot photos of my friends who were all into skateboarding and played in punk and hardcore bands, but apart from that, I didn’t have much experience with photography. In the mid 1990's a friend let me use his professional camera for a weekend and I shot about three to four rolls of film of my girlfriend's feet. Those photos turned out pretty neat and that was my first ever experience of real foot photography.

Your site, Toes-in-Action, has been online for some time. What year did you begin that and how did it all come about?
I started Toes-in-Action in 2003 and it was basically an expansion of the free website my girlfriend and I were running at the time. It was actually my girlfriend's idea. 
She asked me, "Why don’t you try making a second website with multiple models?"

That was a really great idea! I had no clue how to do this, but I put an ad in a local online market asking for models with attractive feet and mentioned that no model experience was needed. It worked like a charm and about 10-20 girls wrote me an email and I eventually ended up shooting most of them. That is how I met the first models that appeared on the website: Jeannine, Fela, Tia, Carmen, etc. 

The second thing I needed was a better camera than the 1.3 megapixel Olympus and I was lucky to find a new Minolta Dimage 7, with 5 megapixel, for a very reasonable price. I also wanted to start shooting video clips, so I bought a Panasonic camcorder and a bunch of mini-DV tapes. Then I needed to build a better website, so I started working with Adobe Dreamweaver instead of the pretty rudimentary Netscape Composer. I had some issues with my old hosting company and after launching Toes-in-Action, I soon switched over to BHE and have stayed there ever since.

When you set in the beginning, what was the online foot fetish landscape like? How has it changed over time?
It was a really exciting time. The internet was still kind of new and there was only a small fraction of foot websites compared to today, but most of those sites were free and had this sympathetic-naive DIY spirit. It was awesome to be a part of this and to contribute to that new online foot fetish scene. I was always very excited about the next updates and communicated with other webmasters, fans and models on a daily basis. I think back very fondly of that time! 


What has changed in the last 15 years is the amount of sites, stores, social network pages, etc. that are out there now. There must be tens of thousands of places that you can visit to look at foot fetish material. It is a good thing of course, and also the natural way things evolve, but there is also a certain over-saturation of material. On the one hand, it is great to have access to so much free random material. On the other hand, it takes the excitement out of finding really good photos and clips. In the early days it was more of an Easter egg hunt to find photos of perfect female feet. There was nothing more satisfying than eventually finding couple of pictures showing a pretty woman with beautiful feet on some small, random website. Nowadays you can just type "beautiful feet" into a search engine and thousands of photos will pop up within a split second. That exciting and satisfying feeling has vanished. It's a bit of an overkill, in my honest opinion.

With those changes, how has Toes-in-Action and your work changed? You've told me personally that you made the move to shooting a lot more of the dirty soles facet of the fetish. Is that one of your biggest changes? Why was that choice made?
You’re absolutely right about that change. I basically only still shoot photos and clips of women walking barefoot in the city. The main reason is that I love seeing this. I am totally into women walking around barefoot in public, especially in places where it is quite uncommon to be barefooted. Seeing a woman walk barefoot at the beach, on the lawn or next to a swimming pool is not as exciting to me as seeing her walk around in a super market, an office, the public library, at university or in the city. 


I am lucky enough to live in a city with lots of open minded, free spirited women who walk around barefoot outdoors. Many of them are students at one of the large universities in my town. They leave the house without shoes and socks and just walk around outdoors on their beautiful bare feet. Approaching them and asking them to model for Toes-in-Action was just a logic development. There was also a point when I noticed that there are thousands of websites out there that show clean feet - mainly photos and clips shot in indoor studios. Only a handful of websites show natural, everyday women outdoors in public, walking barefoot in the city through crowded streets. I decided it would be a good idea to fill this small niche.

Do you, yourself, enjoy seeing a woman with dirty soles? If so, care to explain the passion? When did you begin to notice that passion in regards from when you first began to know that you had a foot fetish?

Yes, for me this is one of the sexiest things - not so much the dirty soles by themselves, but the fact that they turned filthy-black from having walked around barefoot outdoors. I simply love seeing women walking barefoot through the city, being totally carefree and just leaving their shoes at home. For me this shows a certain type of boldness, an "I don't give a damn attitude" that I love about women. 


Wearing shoes is considered to be the norm in our western society, so leaving the house without them is something uncommon, something brave and something very sexy, in my opinion. The dirty soles are "proof" that a woman has walked barefoot outdoors. There are so many alternative/punk/hippiesque women in my city who will walk around barefoot for months in summer. I'm really lucky in this respect.

What was your initial fan reaction like when you opened Toes-in-Action?

It was extremely positive. I think on the first day about 20 people already joined the website, even though there was almost no content in the members area yet. Now there is 13 years worth of material. I received tons of emails and requests in the first months. It was flattering, but also quite overwhelming and I soon stopped taking requests because it was too time consuming. Some of the requests were also very difficult to carry out, or jut not my cup of tea. I'm always open to ideas and suggestions, but I stopped taking requests.

What is the fan reaction like today?
Since I changed over to mainly shooting dirty soles barefoot girls out on the streets, the fan base has shifted. The reactions are very positive to the video clips and photo sets, but these are probably different people than the fans of the early years, around 2003. Coming to think of it, it would be interesting to see who has been a fan since the very beginning.

If you could say something to all those fans, especially those who have supported your work, what would you say?
I am very, very grateful for all the support from the fans. When I started in 2003 I wouldn't have thought that Toes-in-Action would still be around 13 years later. I’m very happy that there are still people out there who are interested in my work and support the site and stores. Thank you very much!

When it comes to the models of Toes-in-Action, how have you gone about finding them over the years?
At the very beginning, I put up ads in a local online market. After about two years I didn’t need to do this any longer because most of the models would pass my number on to their friends, sisters, room mates, etc. and women would contact me. For about seven to eight years I have also started approaching women on the street, mainly when I see someone walking around barefoot who look interesting to me. I approach them and ask if they would like to model for Toes-in-Action, and it usually works pretty well. A few dozen models on my website are also from Italy and were shot by The Feetosopher. He was kind enough to contribute the photos in the early days before he started his two websites.

You shoot a lot of photography outdoors. I've often said that I love many of the settings that you use. Do you prefer outdoor photography as I do? And how do you find such great locations?
You’re right. I’ve actually never taken photos indoors. I've only filmed some video clips indoors. Outdoor photography is the most interesting way to shoot models, in my opinion. Especially if you live in a historic city like mine, which has tons of old buildings and loads of walls with graffiti/street art that you can use as backgrounds. 


When shooting outdoors you also have the advantage of great light - the sun. Of course, however, there is also the danger of unforeseen weather changes or rain for days on end. I live in northern Germany, near the coast, and unfortunately the weather can change from good to bad quite rapidly.

With so many outdoor shoots in public places, I'm sure you have a few funny stories you could share. Anything stick out?
I never kept track of how many outdoors sessions I've had, but it must be around 500. Lots of random things have happened during those sessions. One event that sticks out was a photo session that we were shooting in a bicycle tunnel and the model was popping a bunch of balloons. The bangs were ultra loud in the long, empty tunnel and they must have sounded like gunshots. Suddenly some cops ran into the tunnel with their revolvers drawn and asked us if we had seen the guy who had been shooting. They were quite amused when we told them it had only been balloons.

Where do you see yourself and your site going in the future? Any plans you care to share?
I don't really have many plans for the future at the moment. In a couple of years my kids will be grown up, will have left the house, and then I can take a deep breath and concentrate more on the website and stores and think about the future. At the moment, I am happy when I manage to keep everything running smoothly with regular updates and new models.

In addition to Toes-in-Action, you also run two Clips4Sale stores that focus a little more on other aspects of foot fetishism. Care to tell us about them and what themes people will find when they visit?
I still run Toes In Action Video Clips and Balloons And Feet Video Clips. The first store contains about 1,500 clips and a wide mix of foot fetish themes. There are a lot of public bare footing clips, as well as many food and object crush clips, a little foot worship, a little shoes, nylons, and socks, and also many clips with clean feet and soles, foot jewelry, and perfectly pedicured toes. 


The second store is about my other fetish. Next to feet I also have a balloon fetish, meaning I like seeing women play with and pop balloons. It is actually not quite uncommon and the online balloon scene is pretty large and very dedicated. Personally my favorite way to see a woman pop balloons is by stepping on them with her bare feet - a combination of both fetishes, so to speak. That is basically the main theme in the store, but there are also clips showing other methods of balloon popping such as: blow to pop, sit popping, fingernails, etc. 

I’m quite surprised that more foot fetish sites and stores haven't picked up this theme. I seem to run one of the only stores in the world that has dedicated itself to videos of women stepping on balloons barefooted. I know it is quite a unusual niche, but I have a large fan base and the clips sell pretty well. You'd think that some other webmaster would have picked this up by now.

You've been active on Wu's Feet Links, both in the forum, and as a contributor to the main site itself. What was it like when you first found Wu's Feet Links? Did you have much interaction with Wu? If so, what was he like to you?
Wu's Feet Links has always been the number one website and forum for me. I discovered the site around 1999 to 2000 and I was hooked at once! Wu was very supportive and really enjoyed my first website. He actually wrote to us and asked if my girlfriend would like to contribute some photos. That was a real honor for me! We exchanged mails quite regularly and he was always a great guy. 


When I launched Toes-in-Action he was super supportive from Day One and really pushed the site. Without him I would not be where I am today. I miss him a lot and was in shock when I found out about his death.

Before wrapping up this interview, are there any items pertaining to your sites, the fetish, or photography you'd like to cover?

I think we’ve covered everything very well. Thanks a lot to you, Patrick, for giving me the chance to express myself and for these interesting and intelligent questions. Keep up the good work with Soles of Silk and with helping out at Wu's Feet Links. Thanks to everyone for the support throughout the years and also for reading this interview.


I’d also like to thank all the beautiful women who have modeled for my website in the last 13 years, and of course, a huge thank-you to my girlfriend, who has supported me all these years and who initially sparked the idea of starting Toes-in-Action. Also a big thank you to The Feetosopher for all his photo contributions and for just being a cool dude! If anyone has any further questions please feel free to contact me. Cheers!

Foot Goddess Natalie's Interview



"Own your fetish! When it comes to someone you want to, or plan to be intimate with, don't be afraid to talk about it."


I've been a member of the Wu's Feet Links Forum community since 2003. I'm pretty sure that I lurked on there before joining even prior to that year, but I'm getting old now, so the memory isn't as good. Anyhow, over the last 13 years I've seen people come and I've seen people go. I don't mean the male majority with foot fetishes either. I mean the female foot models and/or site owners. So many have come and gone, making only a post or two, looking for immediate results and admiration, only to be gone days later. Then someone like Natalie comes along... sorry, Foot Goddess Natalie!

Ever since Foot Goddess Natalie joined the forums back in January of 2015, she has been a regular. Whether you enjoy toes, soles, or any of the fine parts of a woman's foot in between, or around those two popular parts, Natalie has shared it with all of us plenty of times. She was a Wu's Feet Links feature model that same year as well. Needless to say, people sure took notice - as did I.

When looking at potential people who might be interested in taking part in a Wu's Feet Links interview, I thought Natalie would be a great choice. Luckily for me, she was more than happy to participate. She was a little worried that her newness, if you will, to our community would mean she wouldn't have a lot to say, however. That ended up not being the case. Natalie gave some very detailed looks into her routine and what the journey has been like thus far with her site and on social media. I'd like to thank her for doing this and I hope all of you drop her a note to let her know you gave this a read. And of course, stop by her site and all of her social media accounts as well!

Introduction & Interview by: Patrick (solesofsilk.com) 



Some of the Basics

What size shoes do you wear?
Typically, a 9 or European size 40. An 8.5 is a better fit for some shoes though.

A lot of your sets showcase some really cute shoes. What kinds, or styles, of shoes are your favorites? 
Thank you! I do love shoes - stilettos especially. I get to "dress up" for work and I take full advantage of the opportunity to wear heels. I love my feet being as close to bare as possible so it's sandals in the warmer weather and flip flops are my go to outside of the office or gym. In the winter I'm often in boots. Docs [Martin's] or other combat style boots are my fave.

Do you feet get smelly at all? If so, what kind of footwear makes them smell the strongest?
Not really. I think My feet smell pretty delicious most of the time. They definitely get sweaty in running shoes or shoes made of synthetic materials and then I guess my feet have an odor specific to me - my sweat mixed with my cocoa butter moisturizer. However, I have definitely had boots and shoes get very smelly after getting sweaty and then, repeatedly wet in the Vancouver rain.

What are some of your favorite colors of nail polish? It seems like you're always changing the color.
Yeah I like to change it up a lot for sure! My favorite colors are deep reds and purples. I love black too. I also like lighter pinks with an iridescence in them, but I've gotten away from that as Dave, my boyfriend, likes the darker shades. I'm a big fan of light, but bright colors that pop when my skin is tanned. I'm looking forward to that this summer.

Are your feet ticklish? Do you enjoy being tickled?
My feet and the rest of me can be very ticklish! A light touch on my soles will definitely get me smiling and giggling. I love to laugh and a good tickling can be fun once in a while, but I've never experienced it as a turn on or part of foot worship or foreplay.

Do you wear toe rings? What are your feelings on them?
I've worn a toe ring in the summer for as long as I can remember. If I am wearing open toed shoes, a toe ring has been part of my every day jewelry just like the rings on my fingers. I've always loved them. 


Now that I am photographing my feet so much I am conscious about switching them up and not always having one on. I see some foot models that have numerous toe rings on in all of their photos. I think that can be sexy sometimes, but I also think it covers up toes that you foot fetishists want to get a better look at!

Stockings can be quite sexy. What are some of your favorite types of stockings to wear?
I definitely feel very sexy in stockings! When I was a little girl, my great Aunt would give my sister and I each a package of pantyhose for an Easter gift. Such a strange gift, but I loved it! They made me feel so feminine and grown up. 

Over the years I've sometimes gone with fashion trends, but for the most part, I don't like my booty constricted by full pantyhose or nylons, so I've traded those in for the traditional garter belt and stockings, and if the dress won't permit, a garter belt - stay-up stockings. I love to dress up in anything for my partner, but what I actually wear for me is black, sheer or fishnet thigh-high stockings. I love knee-high stockings and thigh-high or knee-high socks with the right outfit too.

What foot fetish activity do you enjoy the most?
There are a number of things I enjoy. My feet are such an erogenous zone for me, so I loved them generally touched and played with, or massaged, and I love my toes sucked and my soles licked - especially near the base of my toes. I think bringing my partner to orgasm with my feet and toes definitely tops the list though. Seeing and/or feeling him exploding over my soles or toes is such a huge turn on for me.

If you could have any two famous people give you a foot massage, or be at your feet pampering them, who would they be?
Ha! I've never thought about that before. It should be someone who actually has a foot fetish, so a young Elvis and maybe Jack Black? I read he has a foot fetish too. Foot worship and laughing; two of my favorite things.

Discovering the Fetish

You mention your boyfriend's involvement with your feet and the fetish on your site. Was he the person who introduced you to the fetish? If not, when did you first figure out that there were people out there who have a fondness for women's feet? 
I guess I've always known that foot fetishism existed, but I never really thought much about what that involved because, yes, Dave is the first person that I've known that actually has a foot fetish. Well, that I was aware of anyway. I've certainly known men that appreciate and enjoy all of a woman, feet included.

When you first learned of foot fetishism, what kind of thoughts ran through your mind? How did you view the fetish? 
I'm a pretty sexually open person, so I didn't really think too much of it. Originally, I hadn't considered the depth an actual fetish can have. I guess I saw the love of feet like any other preference. You know, like how there are leg men and breast men. I've also always been an adventurous and curious lover, so experiencing different things has just been a natural part of my sexual relationships. For me, in the right intimate relationship, one will try all kinds of things and eventually experience and enjoy every part of their lover. When something really turns one person on, that usually turns the other person on and it can become a regular part of their sexual experience. It's only been over the past year that I'm beginning to understand the various facets and levels of foot fetishism and how it differs for each individual. It's all very interesting to me.

For the most part I think any fetish is a part of an individuals sexuality that should be embraced, explored and enjoyed. Being partial to feet, specific parts of them, and/or things surrounding them, is great. However, to have feet, or any fetish, be the only thing that can arouse someone, or bring them to orgasm, I would think could be quite troublesome and something one would want to work through. If it fit for two people in a relationship, well good for them, but for me personally, I think that would be very limiting. I hate to think about people missing out on the pleasures and passions of sexual exploration, adventure, variety, etc.

In relation to me personally; in the beginning with Dave, I honestly didn't even clue in to him having a foot fetish. I laugh looking back at that now because it's pretty obvious. I find it very sexy that he does have this fetish and I certainly benefit from, and enjoy his adoration of my feet and how that plays out in our intimate life. We both love sharing my feet visually with the foot fetish community too. The whole thing isn't always easy for me though. The being attracted to and/or aroused by this "non-sexual" body part that everyone has, exposes, and talks about without a second thought, can allow fetishists certain liberties.The rest of us don't usually see feet sexually, so you fetishists can have bit of a free-for-all. Then Dave and I are immersing ourselves into the foot fetish world. I have my insecure moments with that.

Do you remember some of your earliest foot fetish experiences? Do you care to share them with everyone?
I have always had people look, at and compliment my feet. I'd thought that was because they're at the bottom of my long legs, or because of my shoes, or just because I take care of my feet. I always have my nails polished and as I mentioned, I've always worn foot jewelry. Looking back now, however, I'm sure there has been some foot fetishist admiration in there. I'm guessing you're looking for the more naughty stuff though. I don't mind sharing a little... 

Previous to Dave, I had a boyfriend that occasionally sucked my toes, but really any physical attention to my feet, or use of my feet, was just part of intimate exploration - not because my partner had a foot fetish. But through that, I experienced the sensuality of my feet and knew that they are an erogenous zone for me. 

When Dave and I met I was more than happy to receive his foot massages. That was a super sensual, and intimate introduction, to his love of my feet. I also mentioned, however, I didn't really know he had a foot fetish. During our first weekend together, because he included my feet in sexual play, it led me to giving him an orgasm with my foot. It was so incredibly sexy to me and quite empowering.

For all those guys out there who adore female feet, but don't have an understanding partner like yourself, what kind of advice would you give them about broaching that subject to a woman and/or how to do it? 
This is something I could discuss at great length, but bottom line; honesty and confidence are sexy! Own your fetish! When it comes to someone you want to, or plan to be intimate with, don't be afraid to talk about it. No one should ever hide their preferences or turn-ons. The risk of later complications is too great. I get that it can be a bit tricky with feet because there are people who just find them unappealing. They don't like their own feet or anyone else's. Sometimes one just has to accept incompatibility and move on. There are always going to be plenty of other people out there that are open to foot love.

How specifically to broach the subject? Well, complimenting someone's feet can definitely be a way to open things up, but if someone is not completely comfortable with their fetish, say a teenager, and the response they get isn't positive, it could be off putting or seen as rejection. I'd hate anyone to have their confidence squashed. 

 At any age there may not be any better way to approach the topic than with a foot massage. Offer one or if the situation is right just take their foot and start giving it a rub. Know what you're doing! As a foot guy I'd think you should already have read up about foot massage and reflexology and feet as an erogenous zone. Have firm hands because tickling is probably not going to have the desired effect. Then you just have to pay attention to a persons queues, if it feels right simply mention that you find women's feet sexy and carry on making them feel good with your massage. Maybe mention something you know about the connection between the part of the foot your touching and the rest of their body and again if it feels right; finish with a kiss to their toes or soles. Over time you can let your partner know more about your fetish and what you like specifically about their feet.

Another thing I can't stress enough is; don't neglect the rest of the woman! Feet may be your preference, but you have to worship and enjoy a woman's entire body, mind, heart, etc.

Modeling & the Internet

How long have you been posting photos of your feet online? How did that all come about? 
We started the Foot Goddess Natalie Instagram page (
@FootGoddessNatalie) just about a year and a half ago. Actually, right on Christmas Day in 2014. Dave had previous involvement in the foot fetish community and shared pictures before being with me. He loves my feet and I had some foot and shoe shots on my personal Instagram account. I had some foot fans like and comment on those pics and it just sort of went from there.

Do you remember doing some of those early shoots? What was it like when you first began posing your feet?
Yes. In the first months of sharing my feet on social media I was taking most of the pics myself and sending them to Dave to post. I loved his reaction to my shots, the love and compliments, and all the followers I was getting on Instagram was certainly encouraging. I found that what was sexy to foot guys, Dave included, was not necessarily sexy to me. I've had to figure all that out.

When did you decide to open the Foot Goddess Natalie site? 
Within a couple of months of opening the social media accounts we talked about taking that next step and doing the website. Dave is a photographer and was always wanting to do more high quality photo shoots with me. We were seeing such love for my feet, it seemed like the natural thing to offer that option to the foot fetish world.

It seems like you're constantly posting updates on the Wu's Feet Links Forum. How often do you find yourself in front of a camera?
The pics posted to Wu's Feet Links are for the most part, pics we have taken for our InstagramTumblrTwitter, etc. We average four pics a day to those places, so I'm always snapping pictures, as is Dave. Sometimes that's posing with purpose and sometimes that's just capturing a natural moment. Once a week we share the free shot from the weekly photo set we put up to the website. We would love to get to the place of having a bit of a stockpile of photo sets for the website, but over this past year, we've been doing a photo shoot a week.

How do you come up with your shoot ideas, themes, location, etc.?
We live in an amazing area of beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, where there are a lot of options for outdoor locations right in our own neighborhood. When the weather is warmer, we take advantage of that. Sometimes we plan the look of the shoot and the outfit from the location and sometimes we find a location based on something I want to wear. We had to be a lot more creative figuring out locations through the winter months though. But it was the opportunity to do shoots I'd always wanted to do; knee socks and panties; in bed with just a sheet.

Speaking of those items, it looks like you have some photos that lean a little more on the artsy side as far as foot fetish content goes. Is that intentional?
We are definitely doing something different, something classy and sexy that showcases my feet, but Dave also like the opportunity to be creative photographically and have sets that are arty and more like high fashion shoots.

You were the November 2015 Wu's Feet Links feature model. How did it feel seeing your set, "Bare Feet Lounging," published? How was the reaction? 
I was really honored to be the feature model, especially being so new to the foot fetish scene. We are really proud of the set and it was great to see it up there. It was definitely well received by my social media fans and followers and sent lots of traffic to the site.

You told me, when I contacted you initially about doing this interview, that you weren't sure how much input you'd have being so new to the online foot fetish community. In your time online, what are some of the things that you really enjoy about what you've done thus far? 
I'm someone who loves to learn and grow as a person and this whole thing gives me a lot of opportunities for that. Seeing challenges as a place to learn something new or about myself allows me to ultimately enjoy everything. But specifically, I enjoy connecting with my followers and fans, especially those loyal ones that I've begun to feel that I know. I enjoy their comments and learning about the fetish through them. I love doing this with Dave. It's wonderful being able to collaborate with my partner on something that he loves and something that can be so sexy. I love seeing how he enjoys people loving me and my feet. I enjoy the building of the website as a whole and I'm proud of what we are putting out there. As you know, it can be a lot work, but there is a great sense of accomplishment and a lot of enjoyment in our whole process - from picking location and look, doing the shoot, choosing and editing the photos and finally drinking wine and putting the set up to the site together... complete with high fives and kisses.

What is the hardest part about doing your site, Foot Goddess Natalie
There are a lot of challenges. It takes a lot of time and thought to do what we're doing, so it's become a big part of our lives. It is not always easy to find balance. Then there are just the challenges of trying to give variety, the maintenance of my pedi, the consideration of what I'm going to wear and do so as not to mark up and dirty my feet and legs before a shoot. Funny though, probably the hardest thing for me also involves the best part of collaborating with Dave and that is; the creative differences. And basically all of that is just my ego. We don't always have the same ideas about how I look or what's sexy. There can be great shots of my feet, but I don't feel that the rest of me is best or accurately captured. That's a great example of the opportunity for me to grow, get over my ego, see a different perspective, let things go, etc.

Where do you see your site going in the future? Any plans you'd like to share?
In the big picture, I really don't know how things will evolve, but I'm sure they will. In the immediate future we definitely plan to get some video clips up there! ASAP!

I'm sure you get your fair share of fan letters and feedback. What has that feedback been like so far?
I definitely do! I'd say 95 percent of the feedback is just plain love and compliments. There are a lot of requests for footjob pics and videos, cum on my soles, and questions about whether that kind of stuff and nudity are on the website. I appreciate that people want to see that stuff and I hate to disappoint, but sharing that is just not who I am. My intimate life is sacred to me. 

I am always really grateful for the messages that compliment the classiness of what we are doing. I get plenty of requests to "spoil" me or for Skyping, or in person sessions as well, but I also don't do that. And then I get the cock shot messages. Some people don't pay attention to the fact the my boyfriend and I run all of these pages together. They're basically sending another dude a pic of their penis and neither of us wants to see it.

I also get a lot of people messaging for special pics, just for them. I can understand asking, but when I say no, I expect that answer to be respected immediately and it isn't always. I have fans from all over the world, so sometimes there is a language barrier, and I guess, cultural differences too. I try to keep that in mind because I can get pretty fired up when people are disrespectful, or I feel they are seeing me as an object here just for their pleasure rather. I am a woman and a fellow human being with a life outside of this.

Recently, I had my first negative experience, and that was through Reddit. It's different than social media and more like Wu's in that foot fans have access to posts by anyone as opposed to just following their favorites. The basic issue was a small number of people were feeling I was just promoting the website and were saying I was breaking some kind of Reddit "rules." We mention and somewhat market the website on all forums and use the web address as sort of signature everywhere. Why wouldn't we? 

But really, the social media sites and Reddit are their own thing, separate from the website. Dave and I are taking iPhone pics all day and sharing them simply for the enjoyment of people who like my feet. It was a bit mind blowing to see people so worked up over a fun forum, and even more mind blowing, that they could be so harsh, like my feet or not, when I'm sharing free photos. I listened to, and respected the relevant comments and typically there, and in every other foot fetish community, I'm shown nothing but appreciation, so I took the rest with a grain of salt. Ultimately, because of all the love I feel, I have a certain loyalty to my foot fans and knowing that they love and have come to look forward to my posts, I will continue to make them with as much variety as possible, even on Reddit.

What would you like to say to all those fans of yours out there who are reading this?
Firstly, thank you! The love you all show my feet and I is amazing! I've said it before, but I want to let everyone know that I see and love your comments and messages, even if I don't get a chance to respond, or if it takes me a while. They make me feel good. They make me feel sexy. They flatter me. They make me smile. Sometimes they make me laugh and sometimes they make me blush, in the best of ways.

I appreciate all of you that recognize that I'm a woman with a life outside of being a foot model. I ask anyone that doesn't think about that to try to keep it in mind. I think it would be great to have a chance meeting with a fan in person, so if you ever see me don't hesitate to introduce yourself! And my soles are even softer than they look!

I always like taking a peek at your forum posts and photos. I think it would be awesome to shoot photos of you, myself. To end this up on a fun note, how much do you think I'd be loving life getting to gaze upon your soles in person?
Patrick, my soles and I are even better in person. Shooting me would be one of your most loved experiences ever... if you could even stay focused.

Is there anything we didn't cover about modeling, the fetish, or your site you'd like to get into before we wrap up? 
Well, I don't want to get too heavy at the end of this, but I'd like to say a couple more things. I'm a foot model with a fetish site, but I am also a woman quite passionate about the issues of objectification and sexualization of girls and young women. The internet, marketing, media, and social media in today's world makes it a tricky time to grow up. For girls without the deserved guidance, love, attention, and esteem building from their adult influences, it's easy to fall into being objectified and finding false comforts, delaying or completely stunting their growing into a healthy, truly secure, self confident woman. I am a loved, confident 41 year old women making a mature choice to share myself, and specifically my feet, on the internet. There are girls you're seeing out there, however, who are not coming from a mature or confident place at all. In some cases, they are not even knowingly there. I can't protect or help all of those young ladies, but I ask that people consider the people they are viewing, subscribing to and promoting. With so much content out there from women making a conscious, confident decision to be there, please do your best to enjoy them and not perpetuate and contribute to the objectification of our youth.

I'll also take the opportunity to encourage all you foot fetishists to keep embracing and exploring what you love! The internet is an amazing place to connect with like minded people and find all kinds of things to feed your desires. I'd love all of you to get a membership to my website and I'd also love to remind all of you to keep a balance between your online life and real life. Keep worshiping every part of your Goddesses, wives, or girlfriends, and if you don't have one, but want one start with knowing who you are. Be confident, honest, and look a woman in the eyes and smile everyday. Finally, thank you for inviting me to do this interview, Patrick! It's been a lot of fun!

Real Bare Soles Interview



"I've been selling content via the internet for about 22 years. I used to sell VHS tapes and I'm laughing as I think about what pain that was!"


When I set out to do the Wu's Feet Links Interviews Blog almost two years ago, I did so with the idea of interviewing not only foot models, but content providers, artists, and others within the foot fetish community. My reason for doing so was because I felt that everyone has their own story - their own unique perspective on the fetish.

In this month's interview I bring you the man behind Real Bare Soles - a candid, on the streets of New York foot fetish clips store. This is the first time I've been able to interview someone whose work focuses on the candid aspect of the fetish, but it's been something I've been wanting to cover from the start. I always wanted to know about the behind the scenes aspects of filming such content and luckily for me, the videographer/webmaster of Real Bare Soles was willing to let us in on some of those things.

I can honestly say that I've always been quick to check out Real Bare Soles' posts on the Wu's Feet Links Forums. He sure has a knack for finding some pretty feet on some cute, everyday women. I'm happy that he took the time to tell us a little about his background with the online foot fetish community, and how he finds some of the adorable women and feet, like the ones above. Be sure to check out his Clips4Sale store, Real Bare Soles, especially if you're a sole guy, like myself.

Introduction & Interview by: Patrick (solesofsilk.com) 

Some of the Basics

Your videos have a wide variety of women with different shoe sizes. Do you have any preference for big or small feet at all?
I like seeing the soles of a woman's feet no matter what the size, but there's something about large feet that I prefer. I like toes that taper down the side of the foot rather than go straight across, and it's more likely that a long foot will have that kind of taper.

Do you prefer toenails to be painted? If so, what colors, or designs do you prefer?
As I'm pretty much exclusively a sole man, polish isn't really part of the attraction for me.

When it comes to shoes, stockings, socks, and any other types of footwear, are there any things you also like along with the feet that go inside them?
I like high heeled pumps with narrow heels and pointed toes - not fetish stuff, just the sort of thing you see (or used to see) in a professional environment. I hate what they actually do to a woman's feet though!

It's been well established that I'm a sole guy. Do you have any parts of a woman's feet that you find yourself drawn to over the others?
I'm the same. If a woman's feet look pretty from the top, that's great, but it's not a turn on for me.

If you could wander upon any two female celebrities, with their feet kicked up, and film them for 30 minutes or so, who would your dream duo be?
It's very difficult to limit it to two!

Discovering the Fetish

At what age did you first begin to realize women's feet were something that attracted you?
I guess it was about 12, but I can't pin it down exactly.

How did you feel, initially, about women's feet? How did those feelings make you feel about yourself?
If you're asking if I was ashamed of my fetish, well of course I was! This was way pre-internet and there wasn't really any way to gauge whether other people had the same interests you did. Everybody liked T&A and I did too, but what got me really excited was a girl's feet, which nobody was talking about. I really had a sense that something was wrong with me and I might be the only person in the world with this interest.

Do you remember your first foot fetish "score," if you will? When was the first time you can remember getting to touch, or have your way with a pair of female feet?
I'm into tickling the soles of a girls feet, that's my particular kink. I got to do that periodically as a kid, so it was in my life before I even knew what sexuality was!


I've fooled around with the feet of all the girls/women I've been with in my life. This might sound strange coming from a guy who is so active in providing foot fetish content, but while feet are a huge turn on for me when I'm sexually active with a woman, they don't really feature that much into sex. I know lots of guys like footjobs or sniffing smelling feet while they are fucking, but none of that does anything for me. In fact, I don't even care if the woman I'm with has nice feet or not. Well, I care, but it is not a deal breaker if she doesn't. I am even more into a pretty face and nice long hair than I am feet, strange as that may sound.

As you grew older, did your feelings toward the fetish change? If so, what kind of things contributed to that change?
The internet changed everything because it let you know this was a common kink with all different flavors to it. It was a mixed blessing because there was a fair amount of community, and examples of acceptance from some women, but there was also more examples of scorn and mockery by others. There was also, of course, suddenly tons of material available! The old collections of pictures from magazines went right into the garbage.

Also I've noticed that I've collected so much of my own content, and there is so much other content out there on the net, that the furnace-hot desire to see female soles has sort of cooled off in me. Let's face it, these days, we are drowning in a sea of feet. When I watch porn, increasingly it's not foot porn at all, it's just straight porn. Who knows, maybe after staring at a billion sets of soles, I'm gradually working out my foot issues as the decades go on?

Filming & the Internet

When did you first begin publishing foot fetish content online?
Back on the newsgroups in the early to mid-90's.

How did that all come about? Was it something your were already doing and you just decided to put it online?
I starting taking pictures of girls' soles in parks in the early 90's, but very quickly decided to buy a camcorder. I did so in 1993 and almost immediately began posting the images online, first on the newsgroups. I had no idea how to post online at first. I had a guy making vid-caps for me, then I asked Drech, a guy who was prominent in the very early foot fetish scene online, to make vid-caps. He decided to scale back his involvement after a while so I learned how to cap and post myself.

Was there any early inspiration for you as far as the online foot fetish landscape is concerned? Are there any sites, models, or producers whose work you enjoyed, or maybe even helped you get started?
Not really, although I liked the FM Concepts stuff before there was even an internet. The first site I found online was just a big album of scanned photos from a guy who called himself The Recycler. It was a revelation having online stuff like that for many guys who grew up before the internet.

How long has your store been online now?
I've had various incarnations. I've been selling content via the internet for about 22 years. I used to sell VHS tapes and I'm laughing as I think about what a pain that was! My most recent one is a Clips4Sale site that has been around almost six years.

How have things changed from the time you started until now?
Digital content makes it so easy to provide your content to others. However, by the same token, it's much easier for people to infringe on your work. The internet attitude is basically that everything should be for free, which of course is the attitude of the person consuming the content, not the person making it! So it takes a lot of time and effort to hunt the content down and flag it. There's also been such an explosion of foot fetish content that I think the things that used to wow foot guys now just bore them.

What has the fan reaction been like to your work? Do they send you requests, or do you just film what you can?
People have generally been happy with the content, I think, but after a while anyone who does the same thing for 20-plus years gets taken for granted. We all know how it is - you post your first content and it gets a lot of attention. Twenty years later, not so much. People just get sick of responding after a while. They just sort of skim what you post, maybe save a few images. If they really super-dig something you previewed they might go to the store and actually buy it. 


In terms of requests, at the end of the day I shoot this stuff for my own amusement. I enjoy it. It's a strange and, for me, oddly-fulfilling hobby. I sell it mostly for people who have the same interests. At first I gave it away but that really creates a sense of entitlement in people so I decided to share it only with people who value it enough to open their wallets.

Going through your site, and reading the numerous clip descriptions, it looks like many of these women are ones you just so happened to capture while out in public. There are other girls, however, who you say you've approached, and some are even featured in indoor sets. Can you describe a little about how you go about shooting the different clips?

The vast majority of clips result from me just sitting down and shooting. I don't talk to the girls and the girls don't talk to me. But strangely, lately as I've gotten older, the girls will be so curious and amused about what just happened they might talk to me about it. I then check to see if they'd like to pose for me and if so, I shoot with them. Since I like tickling the most, this gives me new opportunities to actually tickle their feet instead of just looking at their soles and fantasizing about it.

It seems like a good number of women notice your filming them. Do you try to hide your camera, or do you leave it right out in the open?
I don't really hide it, except from nosey interlopers. It's out there in my lap so the girl can see the lens, but the camera can't be seen by those passing by.

I can remember secretly filming some women's feet early on in my photography days. Is there any thrill of possibly getting caught for you?
Being noticed, yes. The girls invariably notice because it's not really secret, not really being hidden. I actually like that interaction. I sit down and am pretty mellow about it. I shoot her soles and she sees me doing it, but it's not some drama - it's all so nonchalant. She can just react as she wants to the interest I obviously have in her feet. Since I am laid back and don't intrude on her proximal space, she doesn't have to worry about my hitting on her or following her or anything, so she can just appraise how she feels. More often than not, they seem to find it funny, dare I say, even a little cute?

Have you gotten approached, or called out for filming someone out in public who was angry?
Hey, you never know how people are going to react to being photographed in public. There's all kinds of reactions. Every once in a while someone gets really steamed and it can be awkward, or even potentially difficult. But if that was the predominant reaction I wouldn't be doing this in the first place.

It also seems like some of the women you film find you filming their feet to be amusing. Have any of them approached, or called you out and not been angry?
It used to be "no," but as I've gotten older, and perhaps less threatening or more fatherly looking, it's increasingly becoming yes. But even still, it's less than five percent of the time.

I always let them initiate if they want to. Why? I've noticed that, even if a girl smiles and giggles when she sees you shooting, and may even wiggle her feet around for you, she may become disoriented, defensive even, if you actually go over to her and ask her even an innocuous question like, "What time is it?" I think she's cool with it as long as you are this anonymous guy "over there."  If you're 10 feet away and filming her, she may assume you're going to just walk off when you're done. I mean, it makes a reasonable amount of sense. What's this guy who just filmed your bare soles going to do, ask for a date? Ask if he can suck your toes? That's why when people say to me, "You should have hit on her, dude!" I think, "No, she let me have what I really wanted," so it would be shitty of me in my opinion, to then go over and get in her face. Most often I just walk off when I'm done.

One thing I abosultely love with your clips is the diversity of women featured. One clip will have some European tourist types, the next will feature a big footed Ebony woman, then an Asian college student follows, etc. Do you purposely seek out that diversity, or does it just happen?
I wish it were even more diverse, but by and large it's white girls and the occasional East Asian that put their feet up in the places where I shoot. I'm always so happy to see a black girl though! I love their big feet and their sassiness. Latinas are great too. Indian girls are the holy grail - so rare! Sadly, people who buy clips seem to have definite racial preferences and blonde white girls are far and away the best sellers.

Without going into any secrets, describe what going out to shoot content is like.
It's boring. Sometimes desperately so. I wait around for just the right opportunity to arise. It's not just a girl putting her feet up. She also has to be attractive to me. She also has to have nice feet without calluses, corns, or bunions. She also has to have them up in a way that I can shoot them clearly. And unless she's killer, killer sexy to me, I'm not going to shoot her if she has a short skirt on. There's too much risk with that if she takes it the wrong way, and it's also illegal where I shoot. The shorter version is, I can spend hours and hours waiting for just the right thing to happen. Then, when it finally happens, I can sit down to shoot, have the girl can see the camcorder, and get miffed and put her feet down. Yeah, it's boring. Until I get a great segment, then I remember why I do it!

In your opinion, why do you think there is such a huge market for candid foot fetish material?
I don't think there is one! I think that it's different from the normal posed content because it seems more natural and there's also an air of danger and spontaneity. The girls also look more like the ones we see at the office, school, or whatever and secretly crave.

Where do you see your content and store going in the future?
I see it stopping when I keel over. Actually, as I get older I'll probably wind it down. To be honest, sometimes I say to myself, my God you're still doing this, you idiot? I was no spring chicken when I started. And that was over 20 years ago. If I did decide to stop making new content, I actually still have a ton of older stuff that's either not presently available or has never been posted at all. I could stop shooting and still have several years of vintage content to post.

Is there anything you'd like to say to the fans of your work before we wrap up the interview?
Can I make a plea? Please don't get in my way when I'm trying to shoot a girl! Lots more people come to the places I shoot now that my content has been out there for a while. Often people come and sit extremely close to women's feet, not only creeping the women out but also blocking the shot so I can't get it. I may have been waiting several days for just this opportunity to arise. So please just let me shoot - just sit a little further away so I can get the shot, and eventually you'll get images online that you can enjoy for years. Thank you!
