In one Snapchat video, he can be seen lint-rolling Kylie Jenner’s toes.
In a recent video promoting his new song “Move to L.A.,” rapper Tyga reveals that he has a foot fetish.
While explaining his lyric “Girl in my eyes, you the baddest,” the rapper (who split from Kylie Jenner earlier this year) gets real about what really makes a lady the “baddest” to him: “You can have a girl that’s a 10 in the face and body, and feet are a six or seven, and it can just kill the whole thing. I can talk to a girl who is, like an eight, but her feet are a 10, but it makes me think she’s the baddest ever.” He adds that a woman’s toes are one of the first things he notices about her, following her lips (which given his history with the Lip Kit creator, seems fitting).
While getting turned on by toes often gets a bad rap, clinical psychologist, Dr. Piper S. Grant, says that people really should “recognise foot fetishes as normal.”
“Anything that seems kinky or not heteronormative seems to get a bad reputation,” Grant explains. “People think of sex as simply something that happens with the genitals but sex really occurs with our whole bodies. We are bodies full of erogenous zones, including our feet!”
For people who are not outright about their sexual desires from the get-go, Grant says you might notice your partner has a foot fetish if they show increased interest in your feet, asking to take pictures of them or wanting to touch and massage them.
And according to Refinery29, Kylie certainly didn’t have a problem indulging in her ex’s interests. In a Snapchat video she posted last September, Tyga is seen lint-rolling the 19-year-old’s feet and voicing his opinions on her next pedicure: “You gotta change this colour when we get back. I want pink or baby blue,” he says on the video.
While some people may be more comfortable with the concept of a foot fetish than others, Grant notes that when it comes to any fetish, kink, or fantasy, for a healthy and successful sex life, it’s crucial “to maintain respect for the other person and their desires so long as they aren’t harmful or disrespectful to each other.”
