I am twelve years old and I have a foot fetish. Is this a sin?


I noticed I had a foot fetish when I was about nine. This question has been weighing on my mind a lot lately, I’ve been losing sleep contemplating my fetish and looking on various websites for answers but I get none. Please help.

Okay, the short answer to your question of "sin", is yes, coveting is a sin. But since the sin is in the heart, let's not be so quick to condemn you for what might be something completely different. You say you noticed arousal by feet as early as nine. Since you are still young, I'm not in a hurry to fetishize what actually sounds like a normal, if a little early, expression of puberty. At this age, EVERYTHING results in arousal! Try not to get wrapped up in terms. If, years from now, you still experience these sensations, and if they trouble you, then you can seek help, or seek absolution, but right now you shouldn't lose too much sleep.
depending on what religion you are the answer could be different. That being said having a foot fetish is not "sinful" or hurtful to others. It's not mentioned explicitly in the old testament, that much I know for sure. In truth the only reason such a thing would be labeled a "sin" is because it is a form of attraction. That being said the important thing to remember is that you are not hurting anyone. Nobody has the right to make you feel bad about it. In truth the reason that you could not find specific advice about it is probably because most know it is fine. You care enough to ask about it and that is more then many.
