Christian Louboutin Says High Heels Are Orgasmic

Christian Louboutin Shares His Orgasmic High Heel Theory

"What is sexual in a high heel is the arch of the foot, because it is exactly the position of a woman's foot when she orgasms," explains iconic high heel maker Christian Louboutin. That's what a female French academic told him anyway! Speaking to a British paper, the shoe designer said his stylish stilettos have practical sex appeal.

If you ever had doubts about pounding the pavement in pumps, you should consider this. According to Louboutin, "putting your foot in a heel, you are putting yourself in a possibly orgasmic situation."

It might sound ridiculous, but I'm sure many women can relate when he says a high heel creates an opportunity for seduction that doesn't exist for men, and that a pair of shoes gives a woman the power to be "sexy, charming, witty, or shy." There must be something to it, otherwise, why would any woman wear potentially uncomfortable shoes! Have you had a sexy shoe experience, or just pain?

I have a pair of 3" heels that I can take for about three hours, then they come off or I'll be in pain for a week. The weird thing about the foot surgery, is that, at least according to one survey, half of the women who had it still couldn't wear the high skinny shoes they liked.

Hah, the part about doing that with your feet when you orgasm is definitely true. Never thought about it.

That's just crazy, Stephley! Bones removed from their feet?! As someone who only wears heals on very special occasions, I have to say they make me feel a certain kind of sexy. Although I usually end up barefoot at the end of the night because I'm in pain. But I do wear them by choice, not because I feel some pressure to, so there must be some reason I do it!

I know I feel sexiest when I'm hobbling around due to blisters from high heels. I jest, obviously. Used to wear high heels, but after breaking a foot, I'm now just grateful to be able to walk at all. And I met my beau while wearing horrible orthopedic shoes. He doesn't seem to care.

I love shoes, and have had great times in them, but this guy is nuts. "What is sexual in a high heel is the arch of the foot, because it is exactly the position of a woman's foot when she orgasms” – really? Who studies orgasm foot positioning? What does his sentence even mean - the arch of the foot is the arch of the foot, whether you’re having an orgasm or not! Being a woman you are putting yourself in a “possibly orgasmic situation." Has he ever worn his shoes for a full evening? You’ll have sex with anyone just for an excuse to be barefoot! There’s a special place in hell for high heel designers who encourage women to go higher all the time. I picked up my daughter at a high school dance this weekend, and watched her friends teetering around, holding tight to each other as they navigated a staircase, muttering ‘ouch, ouch, ouch’ as they walked. One poor girl, who looked stunning, caught her heel took a header down a flight of concrete stairs. Her boyfriend tripped over her, then landed on top of her. They bounced up smiling, but once they got away from the crowd, you could see they were embarrassed and sore. There’s a sexy memory for you. Doctors say you shouldn’t wear heels higher than 1 ½-2 inches, but designers are making shoes more than twice that high, and women are told they look sexy in them. Women are actually having bones in their feet removed to wear the latest high, skinny heels!
