Fetishism [...]

Restif de la Bretonne is described by Havelock Ellis as the first well-documented case of a shoe- and foot fetishist. The (rare) term „retifism“ for shoe and foot fetishism is derived from his name.

Foot fetishism in Luis Buñuel and Alain Robbe-Grillet

Fragola, Anthony N., 1994
From the ecclesiastical to the profane: Foot fetishism in Luis Buñuel and Alain Robbe-Grillet
In: Journal of the American Academy of Psychoanalysis, Vol. 22, No. 4, 1994, pp. 663-680

Abstract: "The Spanish surrealist L. Bunuel and the French writer/director A. Robbe-Grillet, who shares surrealist affinities with Bunuel, reveal the presence of feet and foot fetishism (FF) throughout the body of their work. Bunuel believes that sexual compulsions and deviations originate from the repressive teaching of Catholicism that equates sex with guilt. He demonstrates that the fetish is a substitute for intimacy evolving from an overpowering fear of castration rooted in the anxiety of women as being biologically separate from men. For Robbe-Grillet, FF serves as a means to both construct and deconstruct narrative and his use of it as punctuation is far more extensive than that of Bunuel. Whereas Bunuel treats FF and other compulsions as deviancies whose origins are religious, Robbe-Grillet presents them, if society were more truthful, as the norm."
