We Were Surfing Around and Found the Term 'Shrimping'?! What is This??!



Dear Couch,

Dear Couch,

My roommate and I have were looking at some porn sites and stumbled across a term we were unaware of. What exactly is " shrimping?"

Signed,
Two college cuties


Dear Porn Surfing 'College Cuties'(?),

" Shrimping" refers to the act of sexual toe sucking (not sure if non-sexual toe sucking exists, but you never know). In fact, according to the Dictionary of Contemporary Slang

Shrimping n American
      sucking someone's toes for the purpose of sexual gratification, a jargon term among pornographers, prostitutes, ect.



and also

Shrimper n American
      a foot-fetishist. The term draws an analogy between the small pink crustaceans and the toes.



Of course we all have, or will eventually, suckle our lovers toes during a lovely vacation in Reno or an equally romantic place. It's just fun! You get to show your love of your partner by placing your mouth to their feet, and they in turn giggle and writhe like there's no tomorrow. But the term 'shrimping' refers to a far more serious devotion of foot worship. We don't know why and we don't really care, but a significant number of people out there hold their partner's feet in very special regard. More power to 'em and to each their own.

So while you 'college cuties' are out there in that wonderful place that is cyberspace, you'll encounter many sexual particulars that may seem foreign to you. When you do, just file it away for future reference but please don't come back at us next week wanting to know what scat-sex is!
