    I managed to catch the repeat last night. Well done, though I might have been more encouraged to see you promote your chosen profession to the nation as a 'podiatry lecturer' rather than a 'podology lecturer'...but that's a whole other can of worms.

    Question. Can you tell me a little more about how the nerves in the feet and genitalia share a common CNS location? Are there anatomical studies you can suggest reading that explore this?

    Too kind.

    In acutal fact I am a anthropologist/sociologist and study the foot in health and disease which makes me a podologist. Throughout my academic career I taught podology. I also happen to be a registered podiatrist.

    The sensory association between feet and genitalia is well documented.

    The sensory nerves lie adjacent to each other in the brsin and neural print through is often postulated as the potetntial cause with one response triggering the other in some people. Also the peripheral nerve supply runs through the pelvic area and some authorites uphold there may be some association.
