No. 1 Way a Woman Can Attract a Man
Call it the allure of stilettos. The best way a woman can capture a man's attention--so much so that she actually has a bit of power over him--is to wear stilettos. And while women have known this instinctively for hundreds of years, a scientific study in France has proven it.

Women, find out how wearing stilettos can actually improve your sex life!

The study: Led by Nicolas Gueguen, a behavioral science researcher from the Université de Bretagne-Sud in Lorient, France, the team asked a group of 19-year-old women to wear black heels that were one of three heights: 0.2 inches, 2 inches and 3.5 inches. The women walked on public streets and asked men between the ages of 25 to 50 for help in various circumstances.

The results:

  • When a woman dropped her glove on the street while wearing heels, she was almost 50 percent more likely to have a man retrieve it for her than if she wore flats.

  • A woman who wore high heels was twice as likely to persuade men to stop and answer survey questions than when she wore flats, specifically a 47 percent vs. 83 percent success rate.

  • A high-heeled woman in a bar waited half the time to get picked up by a man, compared to a woman with lower heels or flats.

"Women's shoe heel size exerts a powerful effect on men's behavior," study leader Gueguen told The Associated Press. "Simply put, they make women more beautiful."

Why do high heels make a woman more beautiful? "... men are very attracted by a woman in heels, as she looks taller, more sexually confident, sure of herself, with a lengthened silhouette and sensual jutting buttocks," French sociologist Jean-Claude Kaufmann told AP.

A word of warning: Wear stilettos at your own risk. Four-inch and even five-inch extreme heels are quite popular now, but can result in back pain and increase the risk of ankle injuries. If high heels are worn for a prolonged time, the calf tendons can be permanently shortened.

The study findings were published in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour.

Fashionistas, beware! Find out why wearing stiletto heels may land you in the hospital operating room.
