Why do you wear high heels?
Is it because you want to be taller? Is it because of the way they make your legs look? Or is it because they make you feel sexier?
Why don’t you wear high heels? Are flats just more comfortable? Or have you read far too many horror stories on why heels are bad for your health?
There have been countless studies on why high heels aren’t good for your health. Everything from corns, callouses, ankle problems and even schizophrenia. But a new study suggests that high heels might just improve your sex life!
A study founded by Dr. Maria Cerruto, from Italy, says high heels up to 2inches high, worn correctly, can strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. Now, I’m sure you know doing Kegels is as important for your sex life as it is for your posture and support for your pelvic organs. Wearing high heels actually has a similar effect as doing your Kegels!
The way it works: Moderately high heels place your body an optimum angle away from the floor, causing you to contract your abs in order to walk without falling on your face. This puts less stress on your knees and contracts your abs – for a straighter spine, better posture, and strong pelvic muscles.
It’s important to note that heels over 2 inches haven’t been linked to this study, but heels 2 inches and under? Better bust out your kitten heels darling – you’ll not only look sexier, you’ll actually be sexier!
