Addicting in any form is bad! However, there are such addictions which take the form of disgust when they come into limelight. Recently, we were jolted by Indonesian kids boiling used sanitary pads to get an intoxicating kick. The use of shoe polish to get high isn’t something new. Now, something new is added to the list. Can you guess what? Well, it’s socks. It turns out that sniffing dirty socks is something that can serve as an intoxicating material for many.
We will take you a bit deeper into the story but before that let us fill you up with the details about foot fetish which serves as a reason behind this disgusting addiction of sniffing dirty socks.
Foot fetish isn’t something new but has been in existence since ages. Even the rule of foot binding in China was partially influenced by this fetish. Earlier, the Chinese used to bind the feet of their young female child to create small and ‘beautiful’ feet.
Coming back to the point, there are people whose fetish for foot goes beyond just liking the feet. They actually like sniffing dirty socks of other people. In fact, there is a model named Roxy who actually earns thousands of dollars by selling her dirty socks online.
The addiction to smelling socks is certainly rare but there are people who like doing that. One of them is this Chinese man who developed a fungal infection in his lungs after he started sniffing dirty socks every day. Well, he used to sniff his own socks and because of his sweaty feet, the infection quickly spread into his lungs.
Naturally, the netizens were quick to react to this news. Check out what they said:
