I signed onto AIM today and saw this headline. I thought I should share the news.


AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - Toe-licking could become a criminal offense in the Netherlands after a man who licked the toes of several women was released by police without charges.

The toe-licker, whose name was not released, was arrested in Rotterdam earlier this week after a woman who had been sunbathing said he unexpectedly licked her bare foot.

Other women had also complained, and the 35-year-old man has reportedly been pursuing his fetish for years, but prosecutors in Rotterdam said they are powerless to stop him.

``A lick over the foot doesn't qualify as a crime: there has to be some kind of objective sex act committed,'' said prosecution spokesman Cees van Spierenburg in the Rotterdam Daily newspaper. ``That's the way the law is.''

Lawmakers Peter van Heemst and Aleid Wolfsen, members of the leading opposition Labor Party, asked Justice Minister Piet Hein Donner in a formal complaint to change the law.

``How can you explain that we can prosecute someone for throwing a cigarette butt or soda can on the ground, but not for this kind of misbehavior?'' the men wrote.

I think the shame for being a freak and all that toe licking should be punishment enough.

Ah... but this man is thinking 'Why not?' and so the plot thickens...
Seriously, it's obviously a crime if the person whose toes are getting licked is against it.

Always those Dutch people :icon_redf :icon_conf

btw the guy was punished though, because
it was seen as an sexual intimidation...

This story makes me remember the Spanish butler from Mr. Deeds. He was the guy who was obsessed with feet, and always asked, "Can I change you'r socks?"

I think feet can be very sexy...doesn't mean I'd go licking a stranger's foot though. I remember this girl I used to like in High School who had the cutest little toes...was just something I noticed when she wore sandals and fancy shoes...wouldn't call it a fetish though. It's not like I see a foot and get turned on :p
