Hi-I am a newb, so I hope this is the appropriated place to post this...

Besides an attempt to satiate any potential foot fetishes, is there another reason porn actors wear shoes in scenes-especially scenes that involve beds?

If you mean high heels on the women, it's because a lot of males find them sexy.

I have come to the point that if I see too many shoes on the boxcovers I won't buy the movie. I want to see the bare feet of the girls all the time. All these heels and boots and stuff are a real turn off for me. I'm guessing there are a lot of anti-feet directors out there.

It always surprised me the girls don't put holes in these couches when they're doing RC with their high heels.

They're also an effective weapon against earnest male talent who have a tendency to go where they're told expressly not to.

Ramsey, I concur with your opinion wholeheartedly. As a consumer, I consciously check the front of the box and the stills on back. My cardinal rule: "No feetie, no dollah!"

Hey thanks for the responses. My curiousity arouse after watching a lot of Jill Kelly Productions material featuring some very large shoes in all kinds of sexual antics.

I know men and some women find them sexy...but I wondered if directors just chose to have the girls filmed with shoes on because bare feet look weird on film.

Bare feet can't look weird since it's natural. It's actually shoes in bed that looks weird and unnatural.

I prefer stylish, strappy, stiletto heeled shoes and boots, not too big a fan of bare feet, it's distracting and a turnoff if the chick has dirty feet or noticeable callouses on the balls and heels, etc. I definitely hate the awful porn shoes most stars wear, I think clear lucite shoes are the unsexiest shoes ever made.

I'm at a loss too since I don't find heels particularly sexy in any way and they don't add a thing to the scene for me as a viewer. I also wouldn't consider myself a foot fetish type of guy either but I do prefer seeing girls fucking with no high heels on, it seems kinda silly if everything else is off them clothing wise but yet they keep the heels on but the seems to be the norm. I will also say this in no way deters me from watching porn obviously, lol.

that's what turns us shoe fans on, it's hot they left their shoes on, it just looks sexy that way. Also white socks can be hot too.

I'm all for high heels on a chick while she's getting fucked. Boots are good too. It just works for me.

The best position is when she's bent over a stool or table or something like that, with her back arched and getting her ass drilled. You have to have some kind of footwear in that shot!

I don't think the directors are anti-feet, I think its not really a consideration unless its catering to that specific fetish. For the most part, the tall stilettos usually worn in videos make the woman's legs and ass look incredible by popping the muscles up a little. I think that's the primary interest... making the woman look better.

Again-thanks for the replies...

I never really thought about the silhouette effect the shoes give the girls. I thought the wearing of shoes might have something to do with power.

I think a girl wearing heels is more conscious of her body lines.
I don't mind seeing girls with no shoes, but they better be extra conscious of keeping their legs in sexy lines. And there should be a point to her being barefoot, as in catering to the foot fetish.

Most of the time, even now off-camera, if I start off fucking with my heels on, I'm going to finish with my heels on. It just feels sexy.

Actually, I was just watching some porn earlier and I don't know what came over me but I found myself enjoying the spectacle of the girls heeled shoes high in the air. I've never really been into to feet and shoes. I've dabbled in them. I can kinda see the appeal. I still wish they would use a little restraint, however. A little sparkle goes a long, long way in porn.

Still not a big fan of shoes. To me, visually, high heels during sex seem to say, "Hey I got a restaurant reservation next and I don't want to be late!"

Perhaps, a new traditon: ankle socks. I can live with that.

my assumption was that the girls wear high heels to make themselves look taller....I reckon that directors like little tiny women who make the men look big...the high heels are to enhance the impression of an 'equal struggle'....!

I have given up all hopes that directors will consider feet just as sexual as tits and ass and therefore will shoot it the same way. I mean how would boob-lovers feel if directors would let the girls keep on their bra on for example? It's the same way for us foot-fans. The best part of women is their feet in my opinion so it's vexing not to see it the way I want.

Feet are not sexual to most guys, which explains everything.

If I'm paying that much attention to if the chick is wearing shoes, then something ain't right, must be an awful scene. But on the other hand I do notice if a chick has on shoes and if she does it's a sometimes a slight plus. Depends on the shoes. High heels and boots? Works for me. Tennis shoes or sandals? Not so much.

I think everyone is overthinking this issue. Maybe it's because the floor in the set is dirty. The shoes keep the bottom of the girl's feet clean.

So they can keep their shoes on off-screen on the set but once the camera rolling I see no reason why their feet should get dirty.

One of the reasons I watch porn is to see chicks fuck with their shoes on. I know it is just a fantasy, but I think that the girl is just too horny to bother to take everything off. A bit of clothing can also do it for me but I happen to love a sexy pair of shoes.

I personally love to see a girl's bare feet, although it depends on the shape tec of the feet in question how much I enjoy seeing them. Shoes are sometimes OK but over-the-top stiletto heels don't do it for me.

I agree strongly with this, although it's probably a matter of personal preference what is considered a 'sexy line'. I for one hate seeing sharp angles between feet and legs. A good example of what I consider sexy is the way Claire Robbins holds her legs, its actually similar to a classical ballet pose with the feet extended in a flowing line from the legs.

I also hate camera angles that make girl's feet appear larger than they are, which is one reason why typical 'foot fetish' stuff doesn't work for me.

Ramsey.....that's exactly how I feel about legs. For some reason, most "leg lovers" are more into stockings (fishnets, nylons, etc) than they actually are into legs. Or they aren't into legs at all and are into feet instead.

Don't get me wrong. Foot lovers should have stuff they can enjoy. I just wish the industry would get the fetishes straight and realize a foot man isn't necessarily a leg man and vice versa. And that nylons might not be anymore appealing to a leg man than a bra is to a boob man.

Foot guys might want to spend some time with socks and so forth but the real focus of their desire is, of course, the feet. Socks and shoes and so forth are just teasers. And as with all tease, if it goes too far, it's just irritating, frustrating and ultimately, a wood killer.

+1

What is the appeal of stripper shoes?

I don't get it. They are ugly. I like it when the girl wears a gorgeous pair of heels. Makes me think they actually may have a smidgen of taste.

Heels are suppose to make the calf of the legs look better, shapely, firmer. Also, as somebody said above, heels makes a woman more conscience of her body and how she moves. Slower, sexier. Like I said: this is what I've been told by performers, photographers, and some directors. Sometimes I "see" it other times I don't.

Oh, yes...some porn women wear heels during their sex scenes because they have "bad" feet. Bunyons. Flat feet/no arch. Or, ugly toes, split nails.

Bottom line for me: some times I like bare feet, other times the heels can be sexy. Especially on a petite girl, like Jodie Moore.

So apparently they wear shoes because a lot of people like it. There is your answer. Or because they don't want to step in cum.

I sometimes like it and sometimes don't. Sometimes it looks like she is just so horny she can't wait and sometimes it looks like its a porn set and its ruins the reality a little. It depends on the film and my mood.

I just remembered.

Some porn guys have told me that heels are good when working with small girls like Teagan, Gauge, Jodie Moore, because it makes for a better "fit" during the standing doggy position. Or when fucking, standing face-to-face, and the girl lifts her leg onto his shoulder.

Like I said: sometimes it works for me, other times not!

This is just an idea, but it might be that many people don't like to take their shoes off in a place they don't feel comfortable. This goes especially for a place where they are having sex for money. The idea that if they leave their shoes on then it's not personal.

As I said just an idea...

Ramsely - Would shoes these be a decent compromise for if the girl wants to wear shoes (or the director wants her to)?
The heel is there to give her leg a sexier line, yet it's VERY open and accessible to show off her feet if she has nice feet.

But good comment from the one guy who remarked that not all porn girls have feet that we'd actually want to see. ;)

It's one of those things that makes little difference to me. One thing though is for whatever reason if they're wearing tennis shoes or something I find that hotter than high heels. I think the idea behind leaving shoes on is that this girl is so horny and wants it so bad she doesn't care if she leaves her shoes on because it's not a sexual part of her body. It does that sometimes, but like I said makes little difference to me one way or another.

I'm the same way, Ramsey, except I don't mind seeing shoes at first but like to see them come off when the clothing does, or at least midway into the scene. Interesting shoes and/or hosiery are fine as a warm-up, but I want that stuff out of the way, visually, before the sex is climaxed. Getting down to the bare feet seals the deal, as far as I'm concerned.

And I avoid purchasing titles that don't give me that -- even some stuff that is otherwise excellent.

I love bare feet in pics and videos. I don't mind 'em wearing shoes, stockings at first, but I *really* like it when the stockings and shoes are removed during the scene.

I'm not particularly a fetishist...meaning I don't need to see footjobs and toes covered in jizz, but I like the look of bare legs and feet, especially a side shot of the missionary position.

It's been a staple of the industry from Day One since, as others here have noted, it's a very common male fantasy (including this male). In general, I find a partially clothed (heels, lingerie, fetish wear, etc.), strategically revealed female body way sexier than 100% nudity.

Shoes can be sexy left on throughout the scene, if they are used right within in the scene. But if the director is going to have her leave them on, they better be seen within the frame for at least half of the scene and not cut off by the lens frame.

Most of the time though, no shoes seems sexier to me. I agree with mrdngm, they can be used as a prop, just as a stripper uses her boa.

Is the next part of this thread about men leaving THEIR socks/shoes on in porn? 'Cause that really ruins it for me!

I love women's feet. I find them very sexy, don't know why. But dress them in sexy shoes and I'm in heaven!

I think shoes are like jewelry for the feet, or at least the sexy ones are. So I'm not interested in boots, or even closed-toe pumps, which just hide the foot.

Nicely pedicured feet in strappy platform sandals are my favorite; they're like beautiful, made-up women in bondage, set up on a pedestal.

Now honestly, does anyone really think these girls would look better barefoot?
