Foot Fixation? Beware of Jock Itch

Lots of men are sole men – dudes with a particular “thing” for feet. As a matter of fact, some experts believe that a foot fixation is the most common fixation, especially among men. But does a foot fixation come with any potential male organ health concerns? Actually, depending upon how the foot fixation is played out in practice, there could be an increased risk of jock itch among men with this proclivity.
The foot fixation

A 2006 research study found that fixations that involve body parts (or objects associated with body parts, such as shoes) are the most common, and that feet and/or toes are the most popular body parts for sensual fixating on.

When most people think of a foot fixation, they tend to picture a man who worships the foot. He may touch, stroke, sniff, or kiss a foot which he finds attractive. As he does this, he becomes more and more excited. Often he self-stimulates his member while touching or kissing the foot in question, achieving a more intense intense point as a result of the contact with the foot.

But there are other ways in which the foot fixation may be acted out. For example, sometimes the fixation focuses on the shoe which has contained the foot, and he may fondle or kiss the shoe as he self-gratifies. Or rather than self-pleasuring himself as he kisses a foot, he may instead ask the owner of the foot to rub his tumescent member with the foot, or may position himself to rub his manhood against a stationary foot.

The jock itch concern

It’s in this latter type of scenario – one in which there is direct physical contact between the foot and the member itself – that the potential concern about jock itch more likely arises.

To understand why, it’s necessary to know a little about jock itch. Also called tinea cruris, jock itch is a fungal infection that can affect the manhood, sacks, buttocks and midsection. It presents as a red rash and, as its nickname suggests, can be extremely itchy.

As a fungal infection, jock itch thrives in hot, moist places – such as the midsection. And it’s very contagious (which is one reason a guy shouldn’t share underwear with another guy).

But here’s the thing: the fungus that causes jock itch is basically the same one that causes athlete’s foot. And so if a man is rubbing a foot all over his manhood, or is rubbing his manhood all over a foot, and that foot has a fungus – it may easily get spread to the member and cause a case of jock itch. (There is also a similar risk if a man places a sock, stocking or shoe on his member; if the wearer of that item has athlete’s foot, the fungus may have spread to the item and may then spread to the member in question.)

Similarly, a man with jock itch can pass his fungus off to a partner’s foot by physical contact between the two.

Treatment

Men with a foot fixation should ideally ask the owner of any feet they fixate on if they have any foot conditions. Barring that, a man should inspect the foot for signs of a fungal infection, and avoid male organ contact if signs are present.

But, though an annoyance, jock itch does respond we’ll to treatments. Keeping the area dry and free from irritation and using any number of jock itch treatments (most of which are over-the-counter) generally brings relief in a few days. A doctor may also be consulted.

Whether from a foot fixation or not, jock itch can dry the skin, so using a superior male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is advised. Find a crème with both she abutter and vitamin E, two well-regarded moisturizers that can help treat dry manhood skin. It also pays to find a crème that contains vitamin B5. Also called pantothenic acid, B5 provides a boost to cell metabolism and helps maintain healthy manhood tissue.

Perhaps Drug Rehab Slipped Her Mind?

An Australian member of parliament has called for the children of drug addicts to be permanently removed from their parents and offered for adoption. Liberal MP Bronwyn Bishop wants to see adoption, rather than fostering, used to separate children from parents who are battling addiction. Excuse me, but has the honorable member completely forgotten about successful drug rehab programs?

Ms. Bishop, who is currently chairing an Australian parliamentary inquiry into the impact of illicit drug use on families, told the Australian Broadcasting Company’s Four Corners program that the current system is skewed towards the interests of drug-using parents, and not their children. She said there are hundreds of parents who are desperate to adopt children and give them love and good homes, but “there is this ‘biology first’ principle.”

By ignoring that successful drug rehab can keep a family together, and tossing “this biology first principle” on the trash heap, Ms. Bishop nullifies both the proven breakthroughs in the science of drug rehab, as well as one of the most primal urges of human history and experience – the urge for one’s own biological parents, and children.

Ms. Bishop’s detractors have been quick to speak up. Brisbane Youth Service spokeswoman Amanda Davies said there is no evidence that all people that use drugs are unable to parent their children. And Queensland Council of Social Service president Karyn Walsh said there is strong evidence that forced removals cause children long-term harm. “You can’t just go removing children simply because their parents have a drug addiction,” she said. “Children need to know their parents, and not all parents who have a drug addiction are bad parents, or incapable of parenting.”

Victorian Child Safety Commissioner Bernie Geary put it best when he said, “There is nothing in my experience worse than a child who’s sentenced to be without their parents for the rest of their lives. Children are better off with families in the long run.”

And let’s not forget the ultimate solution: if the parents do a successful drug rehab program that gets down to the bottom of why they’re taking drugs and resolves those issues, they won’t be addicts.

Avoiding a Sore Male Organ from a Male Chastity Cage

In general, most men like to avoid anything which can produce a sore male organ. One of the reasons a guy pays attention to good male organ care is so his member will not be sore when given the opportunity to go into action. But some men do enjoy certain sensual roles which, while they provide them with pleasure, might also result in a sore male organ. One such situation can occur when a man enjoys wearing a male chastity cage (or similarly male chastity device) around his manhood.
This presents a bit of a catch-22 situation. Many times a man who enjoys having his member bound up in a male chastity cage is also a man who prefers to engage in submissive play as well ,which again can often lead to the member and/or bsacks being manhandled or otherwise inflicted with varying degrees of pain. And indeed, one of the purposes of a chastity cage is to provide pain when the manhood becomes firm. So does a man with a chastity cage actually want to avoid a sore male organ?

The answer varies

There’s no hard and fast answer to this question, but a very general rule of thumb might be that if a man’s experience with a chastity cage is relegated to role playing, rather than to what might be termed a lifestyle choice, he is perhaps more leery of a sore male organ resulting from his experiences. In other words, if a guy likes to spend a couple of hours playing a submissive role to a partner that includes the use of a cage for a couple of hours, he is probably not in the market for a lingering sore male organ experience. On the other hand, if the man does not view his submissiveness as a role he is playing but more as an expression of who he actually is, he may be more inclined to view member pain as a welcome side effect of having his manhood imprisoned in a cage.

Avoiding a sore male organ

So assuming a sore male organ is to be avoided, what are some strategies a man should employ when indulging in limited cage play?

- Only do so with a trusted partner. This goes without saying, but role playing should only be entered into with a willing partner who is “on the same page” about rules.

- Establish keywords. The participants should decide on words to use to stop the game. Otherwise, a partner may assume that a man’s request to be removed from the cage is all part of the fun.

- Limit time in the cage. Some urologists suggest no more than 3-4 hours at one go.

- Choose the cage carefully. Some are designed specifically to produce pain or discomfort, such as those lined with little metal points or bumps.

- Beware of the weight. Although cages are relatively small, they can be relatively heavy – and that extra weight may cause some unexpected soreness.

Many people find that some degree of manhood pain helps fulfill them sensually. Experimenting with this can add to one’s sensual life, but a guy should still take steps to make sure no real damage is being done to the member.

A sore male organ, whether from a chastity cage, over-exertion or other reasons, may benefit from the regular application of a top drawer male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The best crème will include vitamin C among its ingredients. This vitamin is a key component of collagen, which gives tone and elasticity to male organ skin. The crème should also include L-arginine, an amino acid which is neuroprotective. When a sore male organ results in loss of manhood sensation, L-arginine can help restore lost sensitivity.
