Let’s take a close look at women’s feet.
It makes utterly no sense. But the gut reaction, in men at least, is quite clear. I do not understand it, even in myself.
Women’s feet do not interest me at all, never have. I do not get foot fetishists. Feet are normally the ugliest part of the human body, both male and female. You may disagree. If you do, I think you have a foot thing going on.
But a pair of stilettos changes everything. Mysterious.
In the old Chinese world, women’s feet were mutilated. Bound, they called it. How Naomi Wolf would have reacted to that! And I would have agreed with her, as distasteful as that would have been for me, agreeing with her.
Chinese men found the bound feet arousing. Apparently, it really steamed them up. I would have included a photo of bound feet here, but it’s too yucky. The Moon has lofty visual standards.
Nobody gives men’s feet a moment’s thought.* We don’t put sticks under our heels, and nobody better try and bind them. We’d fight back.
Word of advice to the ladies: If you’re gonna wear stilettos, be slim. High heels on a weight-challenged babe is counterproductive.
Overweight women should stick to sensible footwear.

* Well, maybe. I was wearing a pair of sandals (not stilettos!) in a Houston elevator one warm day, and a good-looking woman commented that I had nice feet, a pretty clear come-on that I stupidly ignored.
