Teen describes her shocking life as a "foot hooker" & you won't believe it!
It looks like some college kids are taking part-time jobs to a whole new level--this time by becoming "foot prostitutes." The occupation has attracted many young women, including 19-year-old Olivia, a student at New York City's New York University. Olivia, who withheld her last name, told the New York Post that she found the ad on Craigslist titled: "Girls with Pretty Feet needed," asking for women ages 18 through 30 to send their names, head shots, and numbers for the position.
The part-time job takes place in a midtown spa after hours on Thursdays and mimics a nightclub. Except in this club, women offer up their toes for a whopping $500 to $800 a week for men to have their way with their feet. Uh…is it just me or does this sound intensely creepy?
Living in a city like New York is expensive which is why I'm not surprised that some women are stooping to this level. When I was fresh out of college, I happened to come across the SAME ad that Olivia saw, but prostituting any part of myself for any price isn't my cup of tea.

Olivia tells the gossip daily that the man who placed the ad requested that she get a pedicure and dress in club-like attire before showing up. And who would have thought feet enthusiasts are picky! She told the newspaper that the man in charge was looking for women with high arches and small feet and then sat all of them down and analyzed their feet for any imperfections. Only 10 were selected--Olivia being one of them.
The entrance fee goes for $100 as a mix of repeated customers and newbies show up at the foot den. The ad read that the girls would need to make $400 a night, but Olivia says the men are generally charged $20 for the first ten minutes, which meant she would need to see many clients in order to meet her quota. The co-ed recalls how strange it originally was for her having the men suck on her toes. "It was weird at first. I mean, I thought he was just going to kiss my feet. Not put my whole foot in his mouth," she says. Holy crap!
But regardless of their fetishes, Olivia explains how polite the men are by keeping their clothes on (as required) and thanking the girls after each session. And prostituting your feet doesn't come easy--Olivia says she had to learn how to move her feet in a sexy way! How is THAT even done!? Even though it's not the most pleasant thing to have your feet molested by random men, she says she gets paid enough to get by and has no regrets, especially since no sex is involved.
Olivia's gig seems to pay well ... but I still don't think it's worth having a stranger's mouth all up on my foot. I can only imagine the amount of infections these women are subjected to by participating in these acts. I'm positive that there are many other jobs out there she could take, that are less fetish-y and weird. But I guess when you're a broke college kid you'll do anything to make a buck--even if it means getting your toes sucked by complete strangers. Ick.
