Sex and shoes: two peas in a pod?

Have you ever put on a pair of heels and felt that those shoes made you sexy?  I wear high heels almost every day.  I torture myself with three to four inches of height to overcome my irrational notion that I must be taller to be sexy.

The other day I put on a pair of low heel shoes and felt simply unattractive the entire day.  The shoes really don't change the way I look with the exception of being a bit shorter, but in my own self-absorbed brain I was less sexy that day. 

Shoes play an important role to many women and their sex lives (I know I am not alone in this).  We use shoes to appear sexy, to lure tepid men/women into our sexual lair for an Earth shattering sexual encounter .....ok maybe that is going a bit far as shoes are just shoes, it's how we perceive them that gives them their sex appeal.

Men and women alike love sexy shoes and many of us love them in bed.  Local radio host Seth from 97x easily admits onair his girlfriend (Phoebe from 97x) has quite a collection of sexy shoes for bedroom activities. Do the shoes make the sex better?  Of course they do.  Shoes are another fetish that arouses the mind, tempts the tastebuds, and fills our heads with dirty thoughts. Whether I am wearing a sexy pair of high heels with a business suit, short shorts, or a nightie I am a sexual object of desire for many if not most.

Upon meeting a woman for the first time among  the initial things I notice are her eyes, breasts, and shoes.  If this woman is hot from top to bottom, but wearing Uggs, I'm probably going to make a less than stellar judgement about this woman's sexual prowess at that very moment.  To me, shoes convey a part of us.  Flats, flip flops, and tennis shoes may be cute and cuddly, but not dirty or sexual.  I may be prime and proper during the day from my head to my ankles, but can bet I have on sexy heels allowing that one part of me to sneak out to the vanilla world.

Recently I found an article loosely related to the matter of shoes and sex:

There have been many discussions about the link between high heel shoes and sexual attractiveness, but a study in the journal European Urology found that wearing high heels slightly enhanced the contracting power of the pelvic floor muscles........Some people have said the findings from the study mean that wearing high heels will enhance your sex life. Find the rest of this article here.

Maybe the pain in my feet is paying off after all.  You may like pretty eyes, round firm breasts, and a bubble butt, but don't ever forget to check out the shoes.  These play a more important role in sexuality than you may have ever imagined!
