The 33-year-old businessman admits he puts money aside every month so he can satisfy his fetish for sniffing and sometimes even tasting women’s used socks
A businessman has confessed he spends £200 a month buying dirty socks and looking at footage of filthy feet.
But the 33-year-old, from Hull, insists he’s a “normal guy really” and there’s “nothing seedy about it”.
The foot fetish enthusiast, who refers to himself anonymously as ‘Mr D’, says he spends hundreds each month on unwashed socks.
He explained he has a “great fetish” for buying and sniffing smelly socks – and admiring filthy feet.
Mr D told Hull Live he messages people online offering them the opportunity to make some cash from their dirty items.
He admits he even puts money aside so he can treat himself to a pair of “sexy” dirty socks or tights.
Usually, he buys the socks in bundles via PayPal transfer – getting four or five individual socks for £40, or a video of feet for £30.
He said the price depends on the individual he is interacting with and admitted he could pay up to £60 or £70 for “special people” or celebrities – but adds that it is strictly women’s feet he desires.
Mr D says he targets women aged 21 to 38 years old and if he finds them attractive he knows that they will have “elegant feet”.
Explaining what he does with the socks, the salesman said: “I am just doing it to purely satisfy my kink on the side. Well obviously I won’t tell you the… ‘you know what’ part.
“But usually just like to smell them, put them in my mouth for taste.
“I keep them and go back to them as and when I please.
“I just think I’m attracted to feet as a whole really. Just find them really elegant and sexy! Obviously it doesn’t just come down to that with a woman but it certainly helps.
“I like socks and tights – people usually wear them for a couple of days and then sends. Some go to the gym in them or go for a run. It’s completely up to them how they do it.
“I also buy pornographic foot pics and videos, as I like the toes and soles, but socks is also a good part of it for me.”
Mr D continued: “There is a sub-culture on social media that specialises in that sort of stuff but I do also come across random people who I message.
“You’d be surprised to hear that I have even had minor celebrities get involved too.
“It is always done with respect and there is no pressure put on those involved. I’d say it is a fairly successful rate. Most do say yes. You just have to know the places to go for it.”
Mr D wants an end to the negative taboo surrounding those with a foot fetish.
He added: “I think the attitude towards foot fetishes aren’t very fair. There’s a lot worse things people could be doing and if two people are willing and consenting to indulge in it then I don’t see a problem.
“I think a lot of people online approach it in a way that gives a bad vibe. If I approach someone I try to be respectful and as honest as I can.”
