A strange man has been seen in the library at Florida International University, crawling around under tables and smelling women’s feet. Police are hunting for a man who rides a scooter to the scene of the crime. Witnesses describe the foot-sniffing creep as bald, about 6 feet tall, in his 40’s or 50’s, with a goatee. Female students are naturally upset — they’re said to be wearing sneakers and checking under the library tables for suspicious activity.
The man, if caught, will probably be charged with lewd and lascivious behavior. According to CBS Miami, psychiatrists say that there’s nothing unhealthy about having a fixation on feet, as long as both partners are willing to engage in the fetish. Dr. Daniel Bober said, “I would be less concerned [that] they are aroused by feet and more concerned they couldn’t exercise restraint and do it in a public place.”
