: : If you are anywhere past four years old (the more or less traditional age), you're outa luck, sister.
: : This barbaric practice was perpetrated on mere babes when the bones of the foot were still very flexible. Perpetual binding of the feet is a cruel, painful and debilitating practice. A child would never be able to walk or run properly without help ever again. (If you are looking for sexual gratification or domination, there are more modern routes to take.)
: Footbinding was done at a older age for alot of men and women in china. Actors would have their feetbound to be able to play a women with boundfeet. At a older age the foot wouldn't be as small as if done as a child but would be alot smaller than their normal feet and would be in the right shape
