The same researchers at Northumbria University who taught you how not to dance are now studying the effect that a woman in heels has on a man. The study looks at women, ages 18 to 35, to attempt to discover what kind of signals they send out when they walk with heels and without.
“The study,” according to the Telegraph, “is investigating if the change in body posture brought about by wearing heels, such as the illusion of longer legs, tilting torso and more prominent rear, sends a signal which has an impact on men.”
It turns out we can’t tell the difference. Male observers in the study couldn’t differentiate between which figures were wearing heels and which ones weren’t.
“Women are spending money on high heels,” said Dr. Nick Neave, the study’s leader, “which can be dangerous, presumably to make themselves look good and add to what nature has given them.”
Apparently, all of that money is going to waste.
So, the next time your wife or girlfriend comes home with a new pair of heels, convince her to return them because you can’t even tell the difference.
Let us know how that works out for you.
