Bootblacking

Bootblacking – Popular media often portrays BDSM with iconic images of people kissing or licking the boots of a Master or Mistress. Popularized by Leather culture, Bootblacking involves the service of cleaning, polishing, and sometimes spit-blacking a pair of boots, usually that of a Dominant. Bootblacking can be used for several purposes: a professional service, showing submission, in military-style uniform play, as a part of boot-worship, or as a ritual way to begin a scene. Bootblacking is a way subs and bottoms can show their care, appreciation, and submission to their top or Dom. Bootblacking can also be offered on a “pick-up” basis, at a bootblack chair at play parties. Bootblacking is especially common in the Leather community because of the focus on leather accessories and clothing. A bootblack usually has their own bootblacking kit. There are even bootblacking competitions at Leather conventions as seen in this video:
