Boot fetishism

Boot fetishism

Boot fetishism is very closely related to shoe fetishism. Many of the same sexual appeals regarded high-heeled shoes apply to boots. In most cases the fetish of the boot is accompanied by a fetish for the material which it is made from. Examples could be leather or latex. High-heeled boots help to elongate the calf, creating a longer-legged appearance which is generally considered to be more sexually attractive.

In general, boots can be divided into three primary structural categories and sub-divided from there. There are ankle-length, knee-high, and thigh-high boots.

There are many potential turn-ons that could arise from boots. Usually the action of the wearer's legs provide many of arousals boot fetishists have.Fact|date=March 2007 For instance, slowing crossing the legs after being seated or small subtle movements of the booted legs can provide for a visual stimulus and a nice crinkling sound. In cases of leather boots, the leather itself can be very reflective and glossy and create further visual appeals. The heels of the boots can also provide sexual appeal, the most common sexual heel being the stiletto heel. The soles of women's boots are attractive as well. Male homosexuals fetishsize military and motorcycle boots. The association of power and authority with the boot is a large part of gay male leather fetish organizations like BLUF.
