    Wanted to see if this is a normal manifestation for those who have specific body part fetishes. I have a both a male foot and armpit fetish. Because those area are “sexualized” in my mind, I’m not able to display either of those areas in public without extreme discomfort. So, when most people can go barefoot or wear sandals or a tank top at the gym, I cannot really do it without feeling I’m exposing a private area of my body.

    Anyone similar or can relate? Anyone had success in sort of overcoming it? I realize fetishes are normal but it seems kind of weird with my situation.

    Don't experience that, but it doesn't sound out of the realm of possibilities for you to feel that way.

    If you don't ever want to show your feet or arm pits in public then you don't have to and that is totally okay. If you do want to, then like anything else you just have to get your brain to "desexualize" the body parts when in certain scenarios.

    A great example is nudist spaces. While the grand majority of the world sees being nude as a sexual thing (thanks to christian colonization of the world...), nudist communities understand that a penis is just a penis; its not inherently sexual unless you make it so. You can take the same approach to feet and armpits if you so wish.

    Yes, I would like to not feel so inhibited, especially at the beach. Good insight...thank you.

    If anybody has an unwanted foot fetish that they wish to get rid of, call me, and I'll let you see/do whatever to my feet. My feet are so ugly, that I doubt you'll never look at feet the same way again.
