Well this explains why strippers risk horrible ankle sprains and debilitating foot pain to wear 13-inch high heels every night.
A new study out of France found the higher a woman’s heels, the more attractive she is to men.
The researchers had a 19-year-old woman stand on the street and ask men for help . . . once in flat shoes, once in two-inch heels, and once in three-and-a-half-inch heels. The higher the shoes, the more likely men were to stop.
In another test, they watched how many men at a bar approached a group of women in different sized heels . . . and men were much more likely to talk to the women when they were in higher heels.
The researchers say, quote, “The results showed that high heels were associated with greater sexiness, overall physical attractiveness, breast attractiveness, beauty, attractiveness to men, and willingness for a date.”
Here’s someone who’s lucky she picks terrible passwords . . . because it ended up saving her LIFE.
On Monday, a 28-year-old woman lost control of her car and drove off a cliff near San Jose, California. And she had OnStar, which should have told police where she was. But for some reason, it didn’t work right. (The woman hasn’t been identified.)
Luckily, a cop named Dave Cameron showed up at her family’s house after they reported her missing. And he asked if she had an iPhone, because he knew they come with an app called “Find My iPhone” that shows exactly where it is.
The problem was, they needed to access her iPad to check it, and her family didn’t know her password. But apparently it was pretty generic . . . because Dave was able to guess it on the THIRD TRY. And the app ended up leading them straight to her.
It turned out she was face down in a ravine, and couldn’t reach her phone. A Coast Guard helicopter eventually got to her more than 17 HOURS after the crash happened.
At the hospital, she was treated for injuries to her legs and stomach. And she was pretty out of it, so it’s still not clear what caused the crash. But it sounds like she’ll be okay.
