Sneaker licking isn't just a social media trend – for some it's a full-blown fetish.
Enter RJ, a young man featured on last night's True Life: My Fetish Is Ruining My Life from MTV. While the full episode isn't available for view online just yet, the clip above captures RJ's footwear lust, and Gawker pulled some choice quotes from the episode.
"I have a fetish. I can’t help it," RJ explains. "I’ve had it since I can remember. It’s never going to change. I like what I like. Do I just lie about it and hope that they’re OK with it later? Do I tell them upfront and they get scared away? Or do I sit here and be single and just twiddle my thumbs and be like, 'I like shoes, I hope I can die alone happy'?"
While RJ's attraction to sneakers is unique, he's got some quotes in the episode that should ring true for readers.
"Sometimes I feel like I’m going to die alone with 13 cats and a room full of shoes."
You're not the only one RJ.
