A fan recently sent me this question via email that I thought was worth sharing with you.  M. H., Portland, Oregon writes : Why do so many of your models wear high heels? (I’m not complaining.) Also, do you have any idea when they were invented?

Our models wear high heels for the same reason as any woman who’s trying to catch a man’s attention – heels lengthen the legs and place those beautiful muscles in a semi – flexed position and as you’ll notice by my image of gorgeous Marina Lopez to the left, turn her hips and ass into an erotic mobile as she walks. Heels also create a frail gait that makes a woman appear vulnerable. Author William Rossi writes in his 1976 book “The Sex Life of the Foot and Shoe” that some men find it arousing to learn that a woman is wearing painful shoes. Hints of light bondage? Perhaps. The stiletto heel you see in most of our shoots was introduced around 1955, but sexy heels have been around for centuries. In the 17th century, the British Parliament decreed that “any woman who, through the use of  high – heeled shoes or other devices, leads a subject of  Her Majesty into marriage shall be punished with the penalties of witchery.” We’re spellbound.
