The Sex Appeal of...Feet?
It is almost like a right of passage to summer. Simply because a pair of sexy shoes has been strapped on to a pair of lowly feet, BAM, those feet become the main object of sexual attraction.

I do not find feet sexy—although I am certain there are millions of foot fetish aficionados, plus certain cultures around the world who would vehemently disagree with me. I, however, believe our toes, ankles and arches are the practical, utilitarian parts of our body.

In fact, during the winter months we neglect and treat our feet as pragmatic tools. We cover them with toasty warm socks, clunky shoes, or if working downtown a shapely calf forming boot. The point being because feet are so ugly, we do our best to keep them covered.

Then with the first signs of spring an amazing phenomenon occurs. Alongside the buds on the trees, tulips poking out their little happy heads, comes a women’s toes peaking out from under her pants or long skirts.

It is almost like a right of passage to summer. Simply because a pair of sexy shoes has been strapped on to a pair of lowly feet, BAM, those feet become the main object of sexual attraction. (Okay the low cut tops that show off floating cleavage certainly help the whole sexifying look.)

So I had to ask myself, what is so sexy about a woman who is teetering to stay upright on a shoe that is wrapped with two or three miniscule straps?

The most obvious answer would be strappy shoes help slim down legs and make the simplest dress or oldest jeans look fashionable. The highness of the heel helps to shave ten pounds off the bottom and facilitates a perplexing mixture of elegance and danger.

Yet, I believe the real answer to my question would have to be the sexual power heels give. Trust me. When a woman dons a pair of three-inch stilettos she knows she wields power. And power is very sexy.

I have witnessed on several occasions, a woman casually chatting in a café with a friend. Her sandal idly dangling and twirling from her perfectly manicured toe. You could cut the sexual tension in that quaint café with a knife. Every man in that coffee house is unable to take his eyes away from the foot in question.

A lady once told me that she had a pair of sex-shoes she wore around the house. Sometimes she would be doing a mundane chore like laundry in her tight jeans and red, strappy high heels. When her boyfriend came home and saw said shoes, it had the same effect on his ability to speak as a wispy set of lingerie (men are such simply creatures).
