These 'Bed Shoes' Are Made for Whipping

These shoes are clearly meant for the bedroom only--the whips that protrude from each toe make it impossible to walk in them even if you wanted to.

These beautifully-made 'Bed Shoes' are from Etsy user Isakaos and, of course, are totally sold out. Many so-called 'fetish' shoes are unaesthetic and horrible to look at--I can only hope that other designers will follow in the footsteps of this one.

Implications - Modern society is one that is highly sexualized in nature. Images, ads and fashions that were once considered too naughty or risque for public consumption are now driving the consumer world of those eager to push the boundaries. The fascination with bondage and other fetishes that were once bedroom secrets extends so far into the public sphere of today's market.
