These Boots are Made for Attracting Men

Traveln' Fool has asserted that feet are a "serious sexual distraction" for men.

Are they? Is this common knowledge that has escaped me? I admit to having a bit of a foot fetish, but looking at men's feet in a pair of shoes doesn't exactly...register.

Weigh in.

Maybe I'm revealing too much about me here, but...ummm, no.

This is based on: experience; conversations with others; things overheard in locker rooms, around the water cooler, etc.; and having had Cable TV since I was in elementary school.

Am reminded of Robery Byrne's quip: "Anybody who believes that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach flunked geography." (now why I can remember that, despite it being about a decade since I read it, yet I can't remember the names of the Hebrew vowels?)

Nice work, girlfriday!!
Let's hope I stand to be good.
h.c. that's the opposite of what I've heard.
To make my case more clear, which I admit I didn't do quite as well earlier, is that shoes-especially in cases where high heels showing a lot of toe, (more so if painted) and the ankle can be problematic for some men. Meaning it draws their attention, and the ankle leads to the calf, the calf leads to the back of the knee, the back of the knee leads to the thigh....and so on and so forth... offense here (seriously) but how normal of a guy are you? I're a seminary student at 29! Not the norm...which is cool. I'm speaking about the average untrained (without your deep understanding of Scripture) male.
Quoting from the most excellent film Pulp Fiction:
"Would you give a guy a foot massage?" wouldn't. There's something sensual about giving a woman a foot massage, hence something sensual about feet. Would a husband give another mans wife a foot massage? Hopefully not. Sensuality is implied; painted toe nails, toe rings, anklets, high heels, stelletto's, etc.
Question: Why would a man sell women's shoes?
I said feet are a serious sexual distraction for MOST men. Not all.

I will stay tuned.

I admit to not thinking TF's hypothesis is nuts. The logic is there and we develop all kinds of idiosynchrasies.

That said, of all the body parts I'm going to concern myself with covering, feet are not at the top of the list.

The Bible admonishes the Brethren to be modest in all dress. In this I'm sure we all fail, which is why we need to remain vigilant.

Yes, Seth, I think we can all agree that would be a problem.

Also, TF, hope my comment above made sense that you make sense.

I'm okay, you're okay.

Who said that? I wonder what kind of shoes he wore...
