IT may seem like a toe-tally bonkers idea, but Chrissy Sweet has made a fortune by flogging photographs of her pedicured feet online.
The 32-year-old hairdresser, who moved from America to London in 2020, was looking for a quick and easy way to make cash after the Covid-19 pandemic hit.

She joined Fun With Feet, a foot fetish website, and in just two years, she’s earned nearly £190,000 with footage of her size five trotters.
Chrissy, who is single, told Fabulous: “People have always complimented me on my feet and I get told they’re very cute.
“It was just after the first lockdown and then another lockdown hit, and there was no work.
“I had a friend who was signed up to Fun With Feet and Only Fans, and she recommended giving it a go.
“She said it was a great way to make money, and I could choose what pics to post, and wouldn’t even have to reveal my face.
“I’d modelled in the past and have always been very comfortable with myself and have always felt confident with my body and being in front of the camera.
“However, while Only Fans was really big at the time, that wasn’t something I felt comfortable with.
“I didn’t want to post revealing photos of myself so I chose to sign up to Fun With Feet as I could choose to just exclusively focus on my feet.
“I just didn’t want to show my face or intimate parts of my body online, so Fun With Feet seemed ideal as I could decide how far I wanted to take it.”

Initially, Chrissy began by setting up a profile.
She says: “I wrote a bio about myself, saying I was ‘sweet and spicy’ and that I wanted to take people for an ‘erotic ride’ – you have to make it sound exciting and adventurous.
“The first photo I put up was one of my feet wearing fishnets, with nude nail varnish.
“I got comments saying they were beautiful, and began to get requests for particular photos too.
“It was all about creating a fantasy.”
Since then Chrissy has turned it into a full time career, saying: “I’ve earned $186k in the last two years, and sell photos and videos from $10 to $250, depending on what they are.
“I get all sorts of requests, for example I get asked for photos and videos of my feet walking through water, or wrapped in lace, rope or silk.
Steps to success
“Some clients love clean feet and a specific colour polish, while others want to see me walk through mud, or I get bondage requests too – it’s all down to the individual.
“The most expensive was for a fan who had a big infatuation for Lord Of The Rings, and the Hobbit scenes where they’re running through water and mud.
“He wanted me to recreate the scenes so I filmed a video reciting the scene and filmed my feet running through mud.”
Despite the taboo, foot fetishes – also referred to as podophilia – are incredibly common, with the body parts a key erogenous zone.
According to Lovehoney, foot fetishes are the UK’s sixth most popular fetish, with 10 per cent of couples saying they enjoy foot play, and last year Pornhub revealed “feet” was their most searched-for fetish.

‘I posted a photo wearing fishnets’
While the hours are good, and enable Chrissy to travel a lot, it’s still a lot of hard work.
She says: “Upkeep is obviously important so I go for a pedicure every two weeks, and I spend between three and five hours a day creating content and mailing socks or knee-high stockings I’ve worn out to fans.
“I also chat to all my clients online or on the phone too, but I’ve never met anyone in person or done any video chats.
“Everyone has their own secret fetish, and it’s all about how you approach it.
“It’s a dream job, and my followers have really enabled me to get a foot in the door, as it were, to pursue my dream to run my own beauty and fashion business.”
