If you have a foot fetish, you may be on to something. Apparently there's a woman living in the Netherlands who used to have five to six orgasms a day in her left foot, reported The Science of Us yesterday. Um, what?
Hey, cutie. Just wanted to let you know that this story originally ran in our May issueso if you like what you see, you should probably snag a hard copy ASAP. I never thought one would happen to me, especially because feet, including my own, have always grossed me out.
I got a pedicure last night. I could not get her to stop hurting me, no matter what I said, and it was an object lesson for me in how I still let myself get abused. My friend said I should have gotten up and left, or, I dunno, pulled my feet away, but there you are.

It seems like there's now an orgasm for everything these days: People talk about having cargasms, foodgasms, shoegasms—you get the idea.
