The Ultimate Sex Appeal Item Is...

...stiletto heels. Men and women both get their kicks when ladies wear the perfect pair of spiky high heel shoes.

That's the word, albeit a bit unscientific, from Britain's Femalefirst Web site, which conducted an online survey of 55,000 male and female visitors to find out which items of clothing added the most sex appeal. Women were asked which item of clothing they wear to make themselves feel sexier, while men were asked which item of clothing makes a woman look sexier. And stiletto heels--the higher the better--came in at No. 1 for both genders with 85 percent of men choosing stilettos and 56 percent of women opting for them as the essential item for seducing a potential partner.

Why stiletto heels? In addition to improving the look of their legs, women said the right shoes made them feel more confident. Men said spiky heels were an attention-grabber and admitted being mesmerized by a woman in heels.
