You just have to be careful for autoerotic asphyxiation. Open the garage door, first.

I heard that Quentin Tarantino was planning a 3-hour epic about this.

That's actually pretty tame compared to the pedal porn I watched a couple months ago.

See, the FPP had an NSFW warning on it, and it was completely tame. Yours has nudity and snippets of explicit sex. Oh, and the video on the blog is hosted on pornhub.

Other peoples' fetishes always look kind of sad and dull. Not like my fetishes, which are shiny and exciting!

The automobile is one of the symbols of power in society. The person who drives the automobile, therefore, is a powerful person. Having an attractive woman driving the car -- putting her foot on the pedal -- is very symbolic of an attractive woman having power and being in control. It also is related to the foot fetish, obviously. It is about desiring to be controlled by an attractive woman. What greater power could someone have over you than if you are beneath them and serve at or under their feet? That is what the pedal pushing fetish is about. It is about symbolic power. You will find that the men who are into this are going to almost across the board be very submissive.

I remember the first time I saw this as a category on one of the sites I visited, I thought... weird!

Then I saw an insect-crushing fetish. weirder yet.

Then I saw genki-genki.com

Do NOT go there. It's pretty much real live tentacle porn. And more.

Somehow or other (I honestly have no recollection) I stumbled across carstuckgirls back in college. I couldn't figure it out. It looked like a porn site. I looked at some of the pictures: not porn. I was confused. I watched some of the videos. They were edited like porn, with long, slow, erotic zooms on mud-covered feet fruitlessly pumping a gas pedal. But there was no nudity, no sex. For the life of me I couldn't figure out what it was. I tried to describe it to other people, and mostly what I got back was a sort of 'Yeah, right, why do you look at weird porn?' response. All of this was years ago.

The other day, when that post went up on The Awl, I felt, oddly, the largest sense of validation I've ever experienced.

Yep, that pedal pumping stuff is fascinating. I've actually made and sold a few of these kinds of videos (with my bf's help). It was fun and hilarious! Some of the fan mail I got was priceless. Many foot fetishists, I've noticed, seem to require a high degree of specificity in order for their fantasies to be satisfied. A lot of people get lumped together as foot fetishists, but they're a fairly diverse group. I felt like I'd have to make a personalized video for each viewer--much more so than with other kinds of fetishes. Pedal pumping is absurdly easy, though, and if people are getting off to it, well, that's swell.

The fetish I find even stranger is the "OMG her break lines have been cut!"thing. The only thing I can think of is that they must love the furious break pedal pushing the woman does as she realizes her brakes have failed.

Suddenly I feel almost normal.

This reminds me of the scene right before the car crash in Vanilla Sky.

There was an article on ...I wanna say nerve a while back about how a new female editor at "Hustler's Leg World Magazine" turned the publication around by polling the men and finding out what *exact* position, clothing, lighting, whatever, was getting them excited and then carefully composing the photographs around them down to exact angle of the arch or something. I'm trying to find it but goggling "magazine, hustler, editor, leg world" is returning lots of things you'd expect.

This sexual fetish is only slightly "weird." Foot fetishists are probably the largest group of sexual fetishists, and America has a huge car culture. You'll likely find as many or more videos of women stimulating men's genitalia with their feet. The car pedal is just another displacement.

Hardly rule 34. Rule 34 would be something like ... the hard, flat gum you used to get in baseball cards. Or dry-erase markers.

I've always been vaguely proud of the fact I'm fairly unshockable when it comes to porn.

That's now in the past tense...

You will find that the men who are into this are going to almost across the board be very submissive.

You have the power dynamic exactly backwards here. The woman in these videos isn't driving the car, she's unable to start the car -- she's helpless, stuck, a little bit desperate, in need of (presumably male) help.

I'm honestly finding the fact that these exist fascinating. There are all these ingredients I can point to and recognize why they could be sexy -- cars, feet, woman in distress, all the pumping and thrusting, etc etc -- but when you put them all together it's about as sexy as waiting in line at the DMV.

Which, presumably, is also someone's fetish.

Humans are strange beasts.

ook, I think you're missing something here which I can attest to from more the S&M side of things: A lot of people who are into dominance and submission aren't all that concerned with whether on top or bottom as long as the power imbalance exists. Most surveys of fetish groups seem to suggest that people overall prefer to be submissive (after all it's the dominant partner who has all the responsibility and does all the work).

I think what's happening here is that you've got the li'l lady stomping her pretty foot of oppression on the pedal of the big hulking manly but submissive driving machine and it's balking her. And here comes the fetishist in his fantasy to put the li'l lady right with her beast. He's identifying with the car as her servant and as her powerful car-fu rescuer at the same time, which is a pretty cool hack.

Also, I find it interesting that in most of the videos, the cars remain stuck, unable to “perform.” Erectile dysfunction anyone? The whole scenario could be interpreted as a metaphor for a man’s feelings of inadequacy.

Alternative explanation: The woman is unsatisified by the car, but then the Hero (i.e. the watcher) comes along.

Admittedly I'm not an expert at stuck car fetishes, but why don't they have the girl rapidly yanking the shift lever from forward to reverse to rock the car out of it's stuck position?

Yeah, that genki-genki thing is far far more disturbing than lemonparty et. al.

All I registered in the brief glance I could stomach were Graphic close-ups of bugs, worms, snakes and dead fish put places they shouldn't be. How that would arouse anyone I have no idea.

That's a very interesting question.
All my evidence is, naturally, anecdotal. I'm pretty much an amateur in the world of fetish porn. It's something I started doing just for fun with my bf. In case you didn't know there are guys out there who really like being kicked, kneed, punched in the groin. (Or at least they like watching it happen to some other poor fellow on the internets.) Now these guys do have specific requests--hell, many of us have that one dirty little thing we need to see/think/hear to push us over the edge. However, in my experience, guys who want to be "beat up", humiliated or kicked in the junk by pretty girls have more generally similar fantasies than guys who are more exclusively into feet.

We decided to start doing foot fetish stuff, in addition, because it seemed an incredibly easy way to make extra cash at first. I mean, dudes worshiping my feet. How hard could that be?

Then the foot fetishists started writing in with their many varied and amazingly detailed requests. Requests like: Could you please crush Oreo cookies (they have to be Oreos, not Hydrox--I can tell!) with your feet, then shove your bf's face in the cookie dust, stepping on his face with your feet (PLEASE wear polka dot socks!!) and PLEASE say, "I'm crushing these Oreo cookies and then I'm going to crush your face into the Oreo dust with my polka dot socks!"*

*This is not a verbatim request--I would never out one of my clients like that--but you'd be surprised how similar it is to an actual request I received. And there were so many like that! In the end, we decided it was just too hard to keep up with the individual requests these folks had. Guys who just want to be kicked in the groin are so much easier to please.

Having seen the BBC documentary about men who were sexually aroused by cars and cars alone this seems, if you'll pardon the pun, a little pedestrian.

Dian Hanson, The Whelk. Coincidentally, I've been trying to recall her name for days now, so thanks!

She is an ex-girlfriend of Robert Crumb. She's the tall, hot blonde he piggyback-rides in the documentary on his life, made as he was leaving to live in France. And, she's brilliant.

i think foot fetishes are so varied because it's actually a lump of a bunch of different fetishes.

off the top of my head:

feet
toes
soles
extra dirty
extra clean
socks (which branches into ankle, mid calf, knee high, over the knee, scrunched)
stockings/pantyhose
shoes (branches for every kind of footwear)
CBT by way of feet
foot worship
foot binding
feet washing
tickling
crushing
and now - pedal pushing

it's also one of those fetishes where i think you'll find equal numbers of dominate and submissive desires - some want to be stepped on by the feet, some want to tie a girl up and hit the bottoms with switches.

i was going to say, the whole foot thing covers so much ground and you're bound to have lots and lots and lots of variation. Footwear alone.
posted by The Whelk at 4:35 PM on April 20, 2010


I remember Dian mentioning in an interview that foot fetishists always amazed her with the specificity of their fetishes. One month she'd get letters complaining there weren't enough dirty feet; they'd do a dirty feet photoshoot, and she'd get hate mail complaining about the disgusting images, "That's not what I want to see!" (from a different fan).

Undoubtedly true. Cross-dressers are famously supportive of each other; foot fetishists seem to be more "I want it myyyyy wayyyyy".

NTTAWWT. Just interesting, 't's'all.
