Leg-lengthening, flattering and glamorous, it’s no wonder women love to wear high-heels.
But designer Christian Louboutin believes stilettos have a far more powerful effect on ladies – and their libidos.
The designer recounted a meeting with a French academic to The Sunday Times: ‘She said that 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.
‘So putting your foot in a heel, you are putting yourself in a possibly orgasmic situation.’
Despite creating achingly high heels that cost hundreds of pounds – the most popular model is six inches – the French cobbler believes women are willing to suffer the pain.
