The Chinese foot binding fetish

Not many knows but the Chinese were the first to invented the foot fetish. If in the modern world the foot fetish is usually expressed by all sorts of high heeled shoes,  the case a Chinese fetish was a much more extreme: the Chinese wanted their women to wear tiny shoes, and when I say "tiny" I mean shoe size of little girls.

To obtain these tiny foot Chinese women wrapped them with special bandages that  postponed their growth and brought to distort their shape as you can see in this X-ray photo.

Te received form the foot was twisted in a frightening way. The following image is not a recommendation for people with weak hearts.

This was the price the Chinese women paid for the honor of wearing the Chinese Lotus shoes. The Lotus shoes were considered the top of the Chinese fashion. They were pointed toes shoes that were very tiny - about 5 inches long!

Today, under the influence of globalization and western culture, Chinese foot binding fashion has almost disappeared and the Chinese women wear standart heels - like all the other women of the world.

What's interesting about this Chinese traditional fetish is the element of reducing the size of the female foot. When you think about it you can find more fetishistic variations associated with this element: high heels shoes create the illusion of a smaller foot, but also - flare pants and leg warmers. Maybe by the Chinese foot fetish can help us understand other fetishes more.
