Austin Chronicle: What does a foot session consist of? Is it different for every foot?

TJ Wade: It is. It's a combination of massage and tickling. But I like to add in my own twists and turns.

AC: Do you always start from the top?

TJW: I start from the top, to the heel. Then a little of this [tickling]. Hold up, do you mind being recorded? I want to get your every reaction.

AC: Sure. Are your feet ticklish?

TJW: Yeah, if you know how to tickle right they can be.

AC: What is it about laughter?

TJW: It's orgasmic in a way. Since I can't see, I envision how they're doing it. Some tickle festish videos, you can hear the nails against the feet, and you can tell how they're doing it. I envision how it feels. Is this person really laughing or is it an act?

AC: Are feet strictly an erotic thing?

TJW: Not strictly. Sometimes my aunts will want me to rub their feet. They've been on them all day. I'll rub them, but there's nothing erotic about that. Do you mind if I smell them?

AC: Go for it.

TJW: They smell good. I know there's a fine line, but me, I don't know when to quit.

AC: Would you massage feet all day if you could?

TJW: The longest I've massaged a foot was four hours. She fell asleep, but I was in heaven.
