Tickling Your Fancy?

Lauryn admits her feet can be ticklish when she's in a silly mood - which is most of the time.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Lately I've been asked more than usual which of the models have ticklish feet. In the Interviews section of this site, each model tells us whether or not she is ticklish. Of course, a few of these girls have told little white lies when I've gotten my hands on their feet. Others, like Abby, are flat out ticklish! One little swipe of a finger tip along those soft Puerto Rican soles and she's ripping her feet from your hands. According to her, however, I'm one of the only people who "knows how" to rub her feet.

For myself, I won't say I am a huge tickling fan. I more or less will tickle a girl's feet if she teases me about something, such as usually for liking her feet. I do admit though, two girl tickling photo sets are quite fun to see and photograph. More on this later.

So which sole mates are ticklish and which "claim" not to be. Here is a breakdown of the 15 models on the site and whether they are ticklish or not, according to their interview responses.
  • Abby - "Hell yeah! All over!"
  • Amber - "Yes. On my soles."
  • Carmen - "My arches are sooooo ticklish!"
  • Cierra - "They're not really ticklish."
  • Kat Noir - "My feet are VERY ticklish, especially under the arch of my foot."
  • Kellie - "Yeah, I think my whole foot is ticklish. I would say the most ticklish spot is my toes, especially when they're being sucked on."
  • Kimmie - "Yeah, my entire foot is."
  • Lauryn - "They're not ticklish all of the time, but it seems they are more so when I'm in a silly mood."
  • Lisa Tyler - "Not really. Maybe sometimes with a feather or touched ever so lightly, but for the most part no."
  • Madison - "My feet are very ticklish all over!"
  • Maria - "My feet are ticklish. But I'll never tell where. Part of the fun is watching people try to figure it out."
  • Mindee - "Yes, along the bridges."
  • Molly - "My feet are not very ticklish, but if they were, I wouldn't tell."
  • Sara Swirls - "I am a little ticklish on the sides of my feet."
  • Sue Lovely - "Yes! They are so ticklish! I think the middle spots on my soles are the most ticklish."
Of course with the increase in requests for tickling information, this means I will have to treat everyone to a tickling set with two girls. And it just so happens that I have a future set coming down the line featuring none other than Madison and Lauryn on a bed with some feathers! What two better girls than these two to deliver some fun-loving photos?

Top 10 Signs You Have a Foot Fetish

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

David Letterman made the "Top 10 List" on a famous nighttime television event on his talk show. But what if he did a Top 10 List on signs of foot fetishism? It is the question that EVERYONE wants answered... Okay, not really, but nevertheless, I came up with how I think that list would go. So here is a little laugh for all of us foot fetishist:

Top 10 Signs You Have a Foot Fetish

10. Your favorite Olympic Games took place in Seoul, Korea.

9. Your envied Al Bundy on "Married With Children" for working in a women's shoe store.

8. You have all the Little Feet albums.

7. You proposed to your fiance with a toe ring.

6. You prefer a game of footsie to any card or board game.

5. Every Christmas you're disappointed because what you want comes in two stockings!

4. As a child you always wondered what happened to the 7 other little piggies when told the story of the 3 little piggies.

3. Since you were mad about not hearing about those 7 piggies, you preferred the nursery rhyme, "The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe."

2. You always seem to have a strange craving for Tootsie Rolls.

1. You constantly say they should fire Dr. Phil and give the show over to Dr. Scholl's.

When a Black Kat is Lucky!

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

This Sunday I have the honor of getting my path crossed by a black kat, or should I say, Kat Noir? Kat, who has her own site called Kat Noir, will meet with me, weather permitting of course, to do a few outdoor photo sets.

Always looking for new models, I found Kat online and saw that we live close to one another and jumped at the chance to have her pose for Soles of Silk. She replied and said she was all for having me take her pictures. As they say, the rest is history.

Kat is no stranger to foot fetishism. She knows the power and the pleasure of her size 8's. She incorporates her feet into her site's content, along with her regular interracial and bi material — and does so in a way that is just a little more naughty than she'll be able to do here. You'll just have to visit her site to see for yourself.

Recently Kat went on a little vacation and she was nice enough to take some photos for us as a preview of what's to come. I think you'll find that she dreamy feet. They look so soft and her toes just like little red candies! So suckable! Oops, thinking out loud again. Anyhow, Kat went to the beach and sent the 10 photos below. I hope you enjoy them. And be sure to let her know that you saw them and what you think of her feet by e-mailing her.

Hot to Approach a Woman for Photos

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Perhaps the most frequently asked question I get from people is "How do you ask a girl to take photos of her feet?" All to often the person asking the question states that they are too embarrassed to ask and want to know my tactics.

For what it is worth, I am far from any kind of "player" or "pimp" as someone once called me for getting all these beautiful girls to pose. I attribute the ability to get these girls in front of my camera to being open about my fetish. Many people know me as "the foot guy" and some of them who know my e-mail address call me "footphotographer." Do I get teased for being open about my fetish? Of course. Do I care? Not at all.

Think of it this way, if you walked up to a girl and asked for her phone number and were timid or embarrassed, there is a good chance that you might get rejected. The same holds true for asking a girl to take her photos. And that is for photos in general, telling her that you want to photograph her feet carries a little bit of strangeness to it. Feet might seem like no big deal because there is no nudity involved, but let's face it, it isn't the norm.

So, just like the phone number scenario, if you were cool and collected and not one bit ashamed of your fetish, you'll be more likely to get a girl to pull her socks and shoes off for you and pose for some pictures. Obviously there are variables to factor in, however. If you're asking a complete stranger, just the fact that you want to take photo of her might make her skeptical as to your intent. After all, there are many people out there who make us sincere people look like perverts.

I've found the best way to get a girl to pose is to know her, even just a little bit. Most of the girls you see on this site are friends. When I used to run The 10 Little Piggies, of the 40 or so models, most were either friends, co-workers or classmates. I attended an art school and used to paint and draw images of female feet. I'd often ask the girls in my class to take their photos to use in my artwork. Having seen my work, they knew I was legit and often flattered to be my subject. And almost always, after they posed once, they thought it was so fun that they would offer to pose again whenever I wanted them to.

Madison spoke to Lauryn about getting her to pose for Soles of Silk.

Another way I've had some success is through friends telling their friends about my site or artwork. Having the site already established helps here, so those wanting to do an upstart site and are looking to get your first shots, this might not help. But when a girl who has posed, say Madison for example, tells her friend Lauryn, Lauryn sees the shots that Madison did and is told how fun it was to pose. In turn you end up getting a model without having to do any work. I've had a couple of models on this site tell me they have friends who saw the site and are thinking about modeling.

And then there are those of you who want to take photos to get a site up and running. Your best bet here is to get some shots of someone you know will pose first. I say this because you'll need something to show the others you ask what you aim to do. The months prior to opening Soles of Silk I would e-mail potential models photos of the models I had already photographed. And I don't recommend using photos from other sites as the basis of what you want to do. Saying "I took this photo" when you show someone you want to pose shows her that you've already done some shots and that someone else trusted you to do so.

When I used to run Piggies I'd carry a photo book to class with me and when I went out, I often put it in my car. I could run outside from a party or hanging out with people to show a potential model my photos. So having something you can show a girl will certainly help.

I hope this "how to" column helps some of you out there get a few girls in front of your camera. Be sure to check back here in the Columns section often because I have a few other advice columns on the horizon, like how to be comfortable with your fetish.
