Christian Louboutin thinks the pain you feel when wearing heels is like an orgasm. In related news, Christian Louboutin is fully crazy.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, Louboutin relays a conversation he had with a similarly crazy academic:
“She said that what is sexual in a high heel is the arch of the foot, because it is exactly the position of a woman’s foot when she orgasms. So putting your foot in a heel, you are putting yourself in a possibly orgasmic situation.”
That is not how it works, Chris! The sensation you experience whilst teetering in sky-high Loubs for hours on end is all pain, no pleasure. Yes, you might look amazing, but we’re talking about PHYSICAL SENSATION here. Here is a less crazy quote that we are more likely to agree with, from the same article:
“There is an element of seduction in shoes that doesn’t exist for men. A woman can be sexy, charming, witty or shy with her shoes. Shoes for men are about elegance or wealth, they are not playing with the inner character. That is why women are happy to wear painful shoes.”
What say you, Manolo?
