The Power of the High Heel
Unfortunately for flat heeled people like me, a new study has confirmed the belief that women who wear high heels have power over men!
Scientists from the Universite de Bretagne-Sud in France conducted experiments that showed that men behave very differently toward high-heeled women. Women become more powerful!
The study found if a woman drops a glove on the street while wearing heels, she's almost 50 percent more likely to have a man fetch it for her than if she's wearing flats.
A woman wearing heels is twice as likely to get men to stop and answer survey questions on the street. And a high-heeled woman in a bar waits half the time to get picked up by a man.
"Women's shoe heel size exerts a powerful effect on men's behavior," says the study's author, Nicolas Gueguen, a behavioral science researcher. "Simply put, they make women more beautiful."
Paris-based sociologist Jean-Claude Kaufmann says a woman in heels looks taller, she's more sexually confident, sure of herself, with a lengthened silhouette and sensual jutting buttocks."
Whatever! Ladies just make sure you know how to walk in them before you wear them!
And ladies don’t forget the medical research. High heels can cause back pain and increase the risk of ankle injuries. Prolonged heel wearing can even permanently shorten calf tendons. And nobody wants short calf tendons!
You know what if we all wore flats there would be nothing to stare at and we would get ahead because of our brains instead of those jutting buttocks!
