What's up with men and ankles?????Page 1 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
I'm sorry if this has been done before.But I did a thread search and did not find any thread relating to this topic, well unless you count the uncountable threads on foot fetish.Okay, so my question is..... what's up with the obsession with a woman's ankle???Does not make any sense to me.

I can't say I ever took a woman's ankle into consideration, Flavia. Maybe I'm the weird one.

Well yea, some women do have cute/sexy ankles. Especially when she is wearing ankle jewelry. Or if she's wearing some nice/sexy shoes or high heals.

But I have never had "a thing" for them. I have noticed them though.

If the lady is wearing a nice pair of high heels I notice the ankles.

It's not that there is a bunch of guys with ankle fetishes...it's that there are a bunch of guys who don't like CANKLES.

I guess when a woman walks all over a man, he tends to notice her ankles.

Seriously?? Ankles?? I've never heard a girl asked what her best feature was reply with "ankles."

I do have great elbows, though.

I think maybe the only time a guy is interested in a woman's ankles is when her panties are wrapped around them. Just a thought...

I don't know whether to laugh or cry. I have fat knees and cankles....is that why I'm dateless? I just had this conversation today with my ex. I'm going to Hawaii and I'm already stressing about my knees and cankles....hilarious. (He thinks I'm insane, but there is just something wrong with my ankles!!) And my thumbs ~ I'm a champion thumb-wrestler, however. (I guess there is good in all things...LMAO!!)

Thank God...I don't have "cankles'" then.Anyway, I just asked the question because whenever I wear skirts,most people say I have "nice"(whatever that is) ankles.I mean who the hell notices ankles.I don't.That is why I was confused.Anyway, I'd rather get compliments on the skirt than ankles.Ankles don't even have any function as far as I know.I mean the next thing I know... people will start giving and getting compliments on split ends(ewww) on their hair .Lol that would be funny.

"Flavia... did you actually write that ankles don't even have a function...lol...yes you did...lol... ok, now think about walking and having no ankle joint to flex...lol...thats the funniest thing i have read today... sorry... i had a great uncle who homesteaded most of his life... he thought that a man should find a women with thick ankles ... said they could carry more feed for the animals in a 5 gallon bucket than those skinny ankled ones... greeneyes... you would have been the most sought after farm girl in the old west...lol."



Hey yea.I did say they did not have a function.But I meant it in a sexual way(this is a sex and dating forum).Anyway, ofcourse they have a function when it comes to physical/biological use.It just does not make sense to me why anyone would look at ankles?????But then, I've never understood foot fetish either.So go figure...lol.Well atleast it's nice that I'm not the only one on here to whom ankle (fetish?) does not make any sense.

In parts of the country where the weather is cold, ankles are the one way you can tell how big the woman is under the coat. Fat ankles = forget it.

The truth is most guys do not like thick ankles. However, the opposite is that if you find a guy that likes your thick ankles. He will not leave your side for a skinny ankled women.
In fact, He will run the other way because it probably will make him sick to look anything but.
Now, that I have said all this. I would say to anybody especially all you women out there. Just be happy and proud of what ever you been given by god and nature and work from there.
Yes, there is good in all things.

How very strange to have found this here. I had no idea I had posted here previously until I saw this. Thank you (first of all.) The only reason I wandered in here today is that this exact topic came up here at home this morning. I concede ~ you are so correct. The SO in my life said nearly these exact words to me this morning. He can't stand tiny calves or thin ankles. It's been mentioned a few times previously and I just sort of figured he knew this was my "obsession" (of sorts) and was helping with my own body-image issues. But nope. He truly can't stand the sight of tiny calves or ankles. Bless you both and those who didn't even realize we have ankles. I'm sorry that you didn't find what you were hoping to, however. My sister/best-friend is here on POF and we are built very similar, but she has the most adorable tiny calves/ankles. I have always wished for that, until today. And it's now been heard and read here in print ~ thank you. There really is good stuff in all things some days.

Is this any different than those body builders who work so hard on their upper body, and try to work on the thighs, but for some reason can not get the lower legs proportionate to the rest of their body?........

Seeing a well developed woman with skinny ankles and lower legs, just does not do anything for me. I will say that the opposite is true as well, when you have a woman that is very tiny in the waist, and has very thick legs and ankles.....

To each his own I guess, and it has always turned my head to see a nice looking woman that has developed legs, and pretty ankles that are proportionate and shown in many ways.

Maybe this is why I enjoy heels on women, a sensual ankle tattoo, and/or bracelet that highlights lower extremities.......

Just my opinion.......

Sometimes this culture can be comically puritanical... It's fine for man to declare himself to be a leg man/ breast man ..but if he strays from the norm and gets turned on to feet ankles elbows then its like "gasp" omg how weird!"


ah, but sweet Sepia..

my you do have lovely ankles..!

well in some countries/cultures ( where women wear the burqua) about the only part you can see are their ankles..?

but ankles are so much nicer than "cankles"..

(apologies if this statement resembles or offends any person, real or fictional, in any way, shape or form..)

Regarding women like verygreeneyez that stress about things like ankles. (although its great that she doesnt anymore!)

Stolen and modified from a commercial - Picture 2 guys sitting in a bar, and one of them, looking downcast confides in the other "You know, I have my fathers thick eyebrows. And I HATE them!"

Can you just imagine men talking like this?? I find it amazing that men and women share the same DNA sometimes...

My last b/f told me that I had gorgeous ankles, had never been told that before so asked what he thought was so great about them. He continued to admire my ankles, knees and legs while telling me that I had a body builders dream body as little joints will apparently make the muscles around them appear larger.

Ankles don't do a lot for me but I sure do like pretty legs.
