What is “Bootlicking”?
Subs perform Bootlicking as part of Boot Worship, in which the sub licks, kisses, or sucks of various parts of a boot.
Boot licking is a humiliating and derogatory act that involves the sub licking the boots of worn by their Dom. The practice has been around for centuries and mimics the act of kissing royalty’s feet to show loyalty and subjugation. The practice naturally translates to D/s play in form and because boots are a common article of BDSM fashion.
The practice of Bootlicking or to be a bootlicker is practiced exclusively by subs or foot fetishists. The Dom’s may be wearing the boots or not, depending on the scene and preferences. The licking may involve Bootblacking or cleaning as well. Worshipping a Dom’s feet can be humiliating and cast as a punishment. Inversely, it can be a way for a submissive to show loyalty and appreciation to the Dom, taking care of the lowest and dirtiest parts of them.
Dos, Don’ts & Tips
- Boot licking can go from mild to extreme. Some Doms allow their sub the freedom to do as they please when boot licking. This is because they know that it is their sub’s way of expressing dedication. However, other Doms prefer to rough it up by purposefully shoving their boots into the mouth of their sub.
- Aside from boot licking, subs may likewise ask and encourage their Dom to step or trample on their body while their Dom dons their boots.
- Since these boots are made with hard soles, stepping on people while wearing them can leave deep bruises and cuts on the skin.
- Doms need to show self-restraint and use controlled force when trampling on their sub.
