Nice! The trick, though, is that we counterbalance ourselves and don't fall over, thus making our butts look much nicer. It is a curious alchemy.

So funny. I've read that the high heel shoe was invented to simulate sexual availability in does. Makes sense in a
way.

Thanks everyone. I must confess, I don't quite understand why people wear high-heeled shoes, though it's a little clearer after Vague's explanation.

I had a curious conversation with my mother yesterday, and the subject of shoes came up. She asked about the shoe-wear in Coburg.
"Well, they do like shoes," I said. "not that I really notice shoes, anyway. I tend to think that it's rude to look at someone's feet when you're talking to them. Now, if they wore those shoes on their face ... THAT would be different."
(Mum made no reply to that.)

Dee, I'll make another tentative guess. Melchior, perhaps?

Actually it was men who first wore high heal shoes.

TimT said...

Don't be ridiculous, Caz. We men don't go gallivanting about in stilettos like floozies or night walkers. We only wear high-heeled shoes for that special somebody.

Caz said...

No, really, the wearing of high heals, not to mention wigs, was the province of wealthy men...in public. Now, of course, as you note quite correctly, these activities are confined to the privacy of one's own home and between consenting adults.

Men are still the high heel champions really. Women use them as decoration, men use them as penis extensions. I felt sorry for Nicole when she was banned from high heels by Tom and his huge platform shoes. Having a height advantage can be quite an aphrodisiac for a lady. Apparently. Nice work Tim!
