Growing fetish trend: pedal-pumping, revving and cranking
Tuesday 30 March 2010
Pedal-pumping, also referred to as revving and cranking, is a new sort of clean, monotonous niche porn that is taking over the web with a big American "redneck" following. The mistress of Jesse James, estranged husband of American actress Sandra Bullock, claims to have a number of pedal-pumping fans.
Anneli Rufus, award-winning author and contributor to The Daily Beast blog, has unearthed a number of sites with thousands of video clips showing pedicured feet in sandals and heels pumping the gas pedal of an automobile, preferably a large truck. Some of the sites include: PumpThatPedal.com, PedalFloored.com, PedalSupreme.com, StuckChicks.com and PedalPumping.org.
Susan Block, PhD, a featured sexologist on HBO's Real Sex and Cathouse, explained "the basic kinetic movement is a masturbatory motion: the muscles releasing and contracting as the foot rubs repetitively against a phallic symbol, which is the gas pedal. Men think of themselves as cars. The 'vroom' of the engine reminds them of their own libidos being revved up by this hot woman."
YouTube airs many of these monotonous videos - it appears one must have a combined fetish for feet, cars and voyeurism to appreciate this growing trend. However Robert Lawrence, the president of the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco, said "the sudden interest in any specific fetish will lead to a popular upswing for a while before it dies down."
Many of the videos that are available for viewing only show the foot and the pedal, and have exceeded 100,000 viewers. At PedalPumping.org, "Brake Failure in White Miniskirt," can be viewed for five minutes for $4.99.
Block continued that it is a fantasy that can overtake a man's sexual life, "If they can't get off without looking at this one very specific thing, it can be awkward," because "they don't want to have to keep asking their wives to get up in the middle of the night and get into the truck."
This trend appears to be more harmless than sexting, which has cost a number of high-profile celebrities their privacy. Perhaps it will gain appeal with international dragsters.
