I found this after googling Yvonne de Carlo and discovering that the most popular autocomplete suggestion was "Yvonne de Carlo feet".

I think this is the first time in my life I've ever clicked on a link from anywhere and thought "Wow, the Internet is a fucking weird place."

So, good job dontjumplarry.

No need to make excuses, dontjumplarry, we don't judge.

What? No dudes' feet? Not that I'm attracted to dudes' feet... I just like to compare shoe sizes, y'know. (I'm 10.5 extra-wide America scale)

It is funny to me how everyone on the Sotomayor link is flipping out and saying how gross her feet are. All feet are gross people! C'mon!

More to the point, all feet are feet. Body parts aren't gross except when there's something really wrong with them, or at least not any more or less gross from person to person. Sotomayor does appear to have one foot in a cast in that picture, but even so they look like pretty goddamn normal feet from here.

(I have to admit I had to look up Uma Thurman, after remembering Tarantino making a fuzz about her feet.)

This was interesting, then I noticed the comments. And upon reading the comments, I feel vaguely icky.

OK. Britney Spears, Yvonne de Carlo, and Sonia Sotomayor entries are all good clean perverted fun but the Eva Braun entry is disturbing.

That's my reaction to YouTube comments as well, so I try to stick to the video.

We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us

On lesser websites someone would have said:
*fap*
by now.

A good think we're above all that nonsense here.

Now, looking at the Wikifeet rules.
We only allow opening galleries for women over 17 who are listed on IMDb.
And, yes. Yes, Eva Braun does have an IMDB listing.

Actually I find the user icons more disturbing. They're all... foot... related.

So this is a wiki to feed a fetish? Uhm, ok ::shrug::

Or, possibly, actually founded it.

What an obscure, minority fetish. Although I wouldn't be surprised if out in some hidden corner of the web there's an actual porn site dedicated to it.

What an obscure, minority fetish.

Anecdotally, not that obscure. More than a few people over the least few years have noted the increased appearance of a bit of foot fetishism in mainstream porn.

That is true for many, many popular women. (Or at least it's one of the first few suggestions.) I'd like to think it is an inside joke among the google coders, but I doubt it.

"Eva Braun: Known for 'Eva Braun - Her Life with Adolph Hitler (1996)"

So she survived?

I thought foot fetishism was fairly well known and semi-popular, although maybe that's because I'm English.

I thought English liked "Splotch".

The only time I've gotten lewd comments on my Flickr account was when I posted a picture of someone playing a carillon. He was otherwise fully clothed but had bare feet.

Oh man, yeah. One time, FAMOUS SISTER put up a photo of her tattoo on Flickr, which happened to be on her foot, completely unaware of what lurks out there. The comments she got.

I am not the sort of person who gets a lot of random messages from strange dudes. I don't know if it's my sense of humor or general weirdness, or the fact that I don't usually use my own picture as an avatar, but most of my female friends get rather astonishing amounts of random missives in varying degrees of lewdness.

This changed when I started selling shoes on ebay. Bear in mind, I do not model them. My profile picture is a glass eye. But I certainly get some... interesting requests that are most definitely outside the bounds of the eBay terms of service.

What? No dudes' feet?

It would be interesting (and by interesting I mean "very likely horrifying") to see the reaction in those forums if someone was to suggest making a men's section.

Agggh. Wikifeet grosses me the fuck out. I don't even like seeing people wearing sandals or, god help me, flip flops if we're not at the beach. Whatever people who use wikifeet have? I have the opposite.

I'm sure Fegelein is behind all of this, and once Hitler finds out, he's liable to start ranting.

Yeah, had a photo of my feet too at flickr, too. People are ... odd.

Rule 34 is about obscure sexual ideas. Foot fetishism is not.
