Hi, i just want to share if anyone is experiencing the same. Since i was a kid i cannot sleep if i dont rub my feet on a rough texture fabric which i have my favorite cushion that i always have it with me wherever i go.




You know the feeling after shower dry and warm or hot but no sweat. It is very uncomfortable and the only thing that can relaxed me and give me relief is when i rub my feet to my cushion then my feet will sweat; not really sweat it just feel moist, not dry.

Bah

Yeah, i would really like to know the name of this condition. I'm so into this since forever ago. I have a mosquito-net, cut to a meter length, with a few stashed at home. (Bros & Sis, I recommend this, BTW, rather than bringing the whole thing or a full rough blanket). The deed gives me focus while writing or reading, and i am compelled to squat on the chair or sofa--looking like a meditating jedi.

wtf hahaha

I do the same, I would like to find the name of this condition. Whenever I'm lying in my bed, I lie on my side and bend my leg. Then I start rubbing my foot against the sheet or a rough texture. This is affecting me, because I made a callus in my big toe. Whenever I rub my foot, my big toe is the one I rub very hard. It satisfies me and even turns me on and I can reach orgasm.

Discovering my bizarre yet satisfying trait
by: tanya

Hi! I discovered having this kind of trait when I was four years old, when I tried rubbing my foot on my dad's newly-cut hair and I realized that it felt really satisfying and relaxing to me haha. Until they decided to buy me a rough textured foam or fabric because I could hardly sleep when rubbing my feet with just ordinary bedsheet or foam anymore.

Whenever I visited my grandparents before in the province, they always had a mosquito-net being that is the most satisfying thing to rub your feet on. And I also found out that most of my Aunts, on my dad's side, do the exact same thing, and that's when I concluded that this could be genetically-transmitted kind of a weird trait hahaha.

I'm already 21 and I'm still doing it, I guess it will never go away, and it's fine, because rubbing your feet with any rough textured fabric is the most satisfying thing in the world.

I could sleep in a cold hard floor anywhere, just provide me the roughest textured fabric or mosquito-net you can find.

I got same every single night I need to rub my feet in a rough texture fabric. If I'm travelling abroad and staying in a hotel I need to get hotel's towel and leave it at the end of bed and start rubbing it till I fall as sleep. I'm thinking of buying a mosquito net to give it ago and see If I will feel more relax lol. It's weird but I'm looking for a very rough fabric to replace my old one. My mum kept old fabric cloth i've used when I was a child. I'm 34 now and still doing it. Sometimes petrolium jelly helps to relax me before sleeping.

I personally use mosquito nets, it's just the best. If those aren't available the second best would be rough socks or a rough unpainted concrete wall
