    Default Study: High Heels Highly Sexy

    Italian scientist claims stilettos spice up sex life
    Powered by Mochila February 4, 2008

    An Italian scientist says her studies demonstrate that the high life starts with high heels. In other words, stilettos improve a woman's sex life.

    Maria Cerruto, a urologist at the University of Verona, says tests she has conducted have found that wearing a pair of moderately high heels could tone the body, condition muscles, and even improve a woman's sex life without the need for onerous exercise sessions

    Ironically, sex was far from her mind when Cerruto began the study. Her original mission was to tackle "bizarre" non-scientific theories blaming high heels for a range of ills, including schizophrenia. But instead she stumbled onto sex.

    "As a woman who loves heeled shoes, I tried to find something healthy in them. In the end I achieved my goal. Heels affect pelvic floor activity, reducing pain and improving your health. We now hope to prove that wearing heels during daily activity may reduce the need for pelvic exercises," a Britsih newspaper quoted Cerruto as saying.

    Cerruto studied 66 female volunteers aged under 50 and measured the electrical activity in the pelvic muscles of the women.

    She says she discovered that women who held their feet at a 15-degree angle to the ground, the equivalent of a 7cm heel, showed up to 15 per cent less electrical activity in their pelvic muscles.

    The results, Cerutto said, suggest the muscles are more relaxed when women wear higher heels, increasing their strength and ability to contract.

    "Women often find it difficult to complete their exercises. This may prove a solution,"Cerruto said.

    Fashion icon
    High heels have been a fashion icon since the 17th Century, but over the past half-century they have been blamed for a variety of health problems ranging from bunions, stress fractures and knee pain to an increased risk of arthritis.

    A blogger who contacted Manolo Blahnik, whose high-heeled shoes were fetishised by Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker in the American television series Sex and the City, seemed to welcome the news.

    "When you put on a high heel it makes life more exciting. In the 1980s it was all about power, but today it's shifted; it's about elegance. If you're a woman, it's a way to appeal to the male species, it's a way to attract. And it works. I have men who tell me that heels have saved their marriage.

    "I think there's a limit, though. Anything over four inches is just too much. You can't walk properly; it's no longer elegant," said Blahnik.

    But a celebrity trainer, Matt Roberts, in media interviews, toed a different line.

    "A woman wearing high heels will hold the muscles tight to compensate," Roberts said. "When you are standing on tiptoes you have to clench the buttocks, the inner thighs and the pelvic floor muscles.

    "It would potentially give them a short-term tension and toning. But the negative effects can outweigh the positive. The knees are put under strain, the hips are out of position. It can lead to long-term health risks," he said.

    The complete study is expected to be reported in the journal European Urology.

    The complete study is at www.uroweb.org/publications/

    Heard this on Bob & Tom this AM. The only shocking thing to me is that a study had to be ompleted to figure it out.

    Too many studies about obvious things these days. When was the last time you saw a porn star barefoot or in Birkenstocks?

    Yep! Most women that wear high heels know these kinds of things already.


    They also forgot to add what heels do for your confidence level. You could be having a not-feeling-so-great-day, put on a pair of heels, and WHAM!! You're ready to take on the world! (Instant confidence booster)

    Just think of what women could achieve by combining high heels with short skirts!
    The only adventures I regret
    are the ones I missed,
    and the thought of all the pretty girls
    I never tried to kiss.

    Yeah, that's a good study as well.

    Let's not forget the study on leather as well.

    In an effort to save money and effort from being wasted on future stupid research into what guys find sexy, I propose that we e-mail all prominent universities and research facilities around the world the following link:

    http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/ah-y...ls-t18251.html

    Yes, there may be some things omitted from that thread that some guys would find sexy (like farm animals and midgets) but, to use statisical jargon, those would be outliers and way too many standard deviations away from the populace average.

    Just completed some studies of my own.......

    Hamburgers are mighty tasty.

    Driving a nail through your own hand hurts like fuck.

    Insulting a marine is a good way to have a size 12 boot lodged in your throat via the anus.

    Water? Wet.

    Stay tuned.....more groundbreaking research to come.

    OR you could come over in just the heels, take me on, and boost my confidence.

    Whoa, Kimmie, one study at a time. This kind of research is not something that can be figured out overnight.
    I just hope and pray that they get the results of these tests before I'm too old to function...Some of us need to know dammit!!!

    I hope you were wearing a lab coat when doing this research. Lab coats make you look smarter, doncha know.
