If the Shoe Improves Your Sex Life, Wear It

Confession: I wear high heels to the grocery store. And to run errands. And to get the mail. And well, just about everywhere.
As a top-heavy petite girl, I rely on heels to balance me out and give my legs that lean, toned, non-stumpy look that tall girls seem to be able to pull off in a pair of bunny slippers.
I’ve had my share of bad heel experiences, but flats have yet to get a second glance from me—blisters, bad posture, and numb toes be damned!
Well, it seems I was on to something. A study in Italy found that stilettos can be good for your sex life. No, you don’t have to put on a pair of your highest heels before climbing into bed with your guy—just wearing heels during daily activity was found to strengthen pelvic muscles, toning more than just your legs.
Researcher Dr. Maria Cerruto said her study of 66 women under 50 found that those who held their foot at a 15 degree angle to the ground – the equivalent of a two inch heel – showed less electrical activity in their pelvic muscles, suggesting the muscles were at an optimum position, which could well improve their strength and ability to contract (in other words, these are the muscles that keep you feeling “tight.”) Combine heel wearing with Kegels and you’ll be unstoppable.
Not that I needed another reason to wear heels, but I can’t wait to see the look on the face of the next person who reminds me how bad heels are for my feet when I reply, “yeah, but they’re great for my orgasms.”
Gives the Amy Winehouse song, “F**k Me Pumps” a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?
