It it is one of the most common fetishes in males.
An informal study was conducted in 2001 to determine
the prevalence of certain fetishes. More than 72,000
Adult-oriented Yahoo! Clubs (now Yahoo! Groups) were
identified, of which 741 were found to be foot-related.
By assuming that the people who used Yahoo! Clubs
represented a balance cross-section of the world's
population in terms of sexual preferences, the percent
of the population with foot fetishes was estimated
to be 1.14%.
