How porn addiction can affect your sex life With all the new-age communication taking over almost every aspect of our lives, including the way we flirt, perhaps it’s time to be reminded of just how good old-school flirting can be.So, if you can for a moment, forget about sexting (it sounds like something robots do for pleasure), we’d like to talk you through the steps of playing footsie. What’s that, you ask?Well, footsie is an intimate and playful way to flirt, and it’s usually done secretly in the company of other people, which makes it quite mischievous...and a huge turn-on.Here are some tips to help you be a footsie fundi:Cleanliness above all else. Make sure your feet and socks are clean.Location is vital. Restaurants and dinner tables are great.Choose the right person. You don’t want to mistakenly caress your best friend’s husband’s foot.Initiate contact by tapping the other person’s foot lightly, then pulling away.Wait for a reaction. If they quickly pull their foot away, stop!If your target looks confused, wink or give them sexy smile.Once you see they’re receptive, caress their foot more slowly and linger a bit.Patience is everything. Pull away and wait for your target to come after your foot.Start climbing. Gently run your foot up and down the other person’s calf.Go for the prize. If you can reach your target’s crotch, rest there and enjoy the warmth.REMEMBER: What happens under the table stays under the table. You never talk about having just played footsie. It's an unspoken form of flirting best enjoyed without discussion. Have fun!Check out this funny Footsie Prank video.Visit our Under the Covers hub.
