Best Foot Forward: Foot Massage Creams

By Jeff Booth

I’m going to give you an example of when knowing how to give a good foot massage came in very handy for me, along with a couple of products I personally endorse for foot massage.

This took place a few years ago. Erotic University is now a virtual online campus, but at one time, it was a real campus with live classes. I did a lot of promotional appearances for it, and one of those was on Playboy Radio’s Nightcalls with Ginger Lynn and Christy Canyon on the Sirius Satellite Network. It was a fun segment, but definitely one of the more unusual radio interviews I have done.

The first thing they asked me was if I would use some latex polisher and rub it into Christy’s latex corset while she was wearing it. Now this was all fine and well, but it makes it much more difficult to do an interview and discuss the wonders of Erotic University classes. At one point Ginger asked me to rub Christy’s breasts, which I did, but I think I might have lost the thread of the conversation for a moment.

The subject got onto our massage classes, and Ginger asked me if I would massage Christy. I pointed out that I was not the instructor for the class, and Christy says, “Oh, so are you dissing me?” “Not at all,” I replied, “I just didn’t want to oversell myself.”

She came over and I quickly realized that massaging two of her most accessible areas, her ass and her breasts, would make it impossible for me to do a good job with both the interview and with her respective parts. And, frankly, my ego came into play. Here was an opportunity to impress a porn star with my skills, and there is just not a lot you can do with breast and ass work when someone is standing and while you are trying to do an effective interview.

I decided to go with my strengths. “What usually works as a good place to get started is with the feet. I get a lot of practice with this, since my wife can have an orgasm from a foot massage.” So, for pretty much the rest of the interview, I worked on Christy’s feet. Clearly, I could not give it my full attention, but I think I did okay. Afterwards she said that in a quieter less distracting environment she probably could come from one of my foot massages. True or not, it was a nice little stroke of the ego which I appreciated.

I have used the ability to give a good foot massage to good effect at swing parties, and to keep my wife happy. A really good foot massage, though, requires the right type of massage cream. Yes, cream. Through years of experience, I have learned that creams seem to give the very best foot massages. I don’t know exactly why, but using something thicker than an oil is better. Creams can be a little messy, though. A good tip is to have a warm wash cloth nearby for final cleanup.

There are a couple of products that I have used fairly regularly. The first comes from Kama Sutra. It is called Body Soufflé Kissable Body Cream. It comes in Chocolate, Strawberry, and Cool Mint.

It is edible, but be forewarned. While some people love toe sucking, others are repelled by it. This is where good communication with your partner is important. If you do wind up doing some toe sucking with it, the good news is that it is fairly tasty. Of course, it can also be used on body parts other than the feet.

Feet have a lot of nooks and crannys, and this glides smoothly through them all. It has a luxurious richness I really like. The smell is great, and a little goes a long way.

They come in 7.5 oz. tubs. Ingredients:

Chocolate Crème Brulee: Water (AQUA/EAU), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Laureth -7, Theobroma Cacoa (COCOA) Fruit Extract, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Peg 100 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Flavor (AROMA), Carbomer, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Saccharine, Tetrasodium Edta. Strawberry Crème: Water (AQUA/EAU), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Flavor (AROMA), Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparrafin, Laureth -7, Peg 100 Stearate, Carbomer, Sodium Saccharin, Sodium Hydroxide, Potassium Sorbate, Tetrasodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Red 40 (CI 16035). Cool Mint Crème: Water (AQUA/EAU), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyacrylamide, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Mentha Piperita (PEPPERMINT) Oil, Flavor (AROMA), Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparrafin, Laureth-7, Peg-100 Stearate, Carbomer, Sodium Saccharin, Sodium Hydroxide, Potassium Sorbate, Tetrasodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Blue 1 (CI 42090).

 

Another favorite product comes from Shunga, and is their Kissable Massage Cream. It comes in Exotic Fruits, Sparkling Strawberry Wine, Intoxicating Chocolate, Pear & Exotic Green Tea , and Almond Sweetness.

Like the Kama Sutra product, it is edible. There are more choices of flavors.

What Kris liked best about the feel is that it is exceptionally smooth and creamy, a little bit lighter than the Kama Sutra product. I also found that it seemed to glide just a little smoother on the skin. At first I was concerned that I would require more cream right away, but it offered a nice smooth glide for a long time.

They come in 7 oz. tubes. Ingredients:

(I.N.C.I.): Water/Eau (Aqua), Glycerin/Glycérine, Stearic Acid, Sunflower Oil/Huile de tournesol (Helianthus Annus), Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Petrolatum, Glycereth-2 Cocoate, Propylene Glycol, Canola Oil/Huile de canola, Sodium Benzoate, DMDM Hydantoin, Flavor/Saveur (Aroma), Citric Acid/Acide citrique, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Polyacrylate, Vitamin/Vitamine E Acetate (Tocopheryl Acetate), Sucralose, Avocado Oil/Huile d’avocat (Persea Gratissima Oil), Grape Seed Oil/Huile de pépin de raisin (Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil), Sesame Oil/Huile de sésame (Sesamum Indicum Seed Oil), Safflower Oil/Huile de carthame (Carthamus Tinctorius Oil), Honey/Miel. FRAMBOISE: Citral, Methyl Heptine Carbonate. ALMONDS – CHOCOLATE: Benzyl Alcohol.

Head to head, though, there is no clear winner for foot massage. Both do a very good job, smell good, and should satisfy the toe suckers.
