In this study, heterosexual women and gay men from the Czech Republic viewed silhouettes of nude men who varied in body type. They were asked to select the image that most closely resembled their current or most recent partner, their ideal partner, and their father as they remembered him in childhood. Specifically, for straight women, regardless of whether their father was heavy-set, lean, or muscular, they tended to envision their ideal partner as having a similar body type.

If by dull rhymes our English must be chain'd, And, like Andromeda, the Sonnet sweet Fetter'd, in spite of pained loveliness, Let us find, if we must be constrain'd, Sandals more interwoven and complete To fit the naked foot of Poesy. Freud understood foot fetishism as a compensatory response to infantile confrontation with the castration complex that is, with the absent phallus of the mother.
