"[W]hat 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."

--Christian Louboutin tells the UK's Sunday Times (via the Daily Mail) why wearing what some might see as pain-inducing wobbly sky-high stilettos is actually an orgasmic experience. A French academic told him so. He also goes on to say that women are happy to be in pain in his shoes because "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."
