Wearing two-inch heels can give lady's love life a lift: Small platforms help tone key muscles


Why wearing two-inch heels can give lady’s love life a lift: Small platforms help tone key muscles… but stilettos fail to have same effect, study shows

  • Shoes with two inch heels stimulates muscles that help a woman to orgasm
  • Biggest effect was seen in those who wore them for at least eight hours a day 
  • Scientists came up with the findings after analysing different shoe heights  










As is so often the case in the bedroom, it comes down to size.

But in this instance, the magical figure could be just, ahem, two inches.

Wearing shoes with heels at this height could be the secret to boosting a woman’s love life, a study shows – as such footwear stimulates muscles that help a woman to orgasm.

Donning a pair of killer heels, or opting for more sensible flat shoes, however, does not have the same benefit.

Scientists came up with the findings after analysing different shoe heights to see which had the most impact on women’s pelvic floor muscles.

These are a group of muscles that control sexual function as well as the bladder. 

A stronger pelvic floor can boost blood flow during sex and increase the chances of reaching the heights of ecstasy.

Researchers, from Shanghai’s Fudan University, quizzed 1,263 women on what kind of shoes they wore – from heels of under one inch to more than three inches.

They discovered that two-inch heels work best because, when a woman is standing in them, they tilt her pelvis just enough to make its muscles repeatedly contract – keeping them in good shape. 

The biggest effect was seen in those who wore them for at least eight hours a day.

However, shoes with no heels or very high heels did not stimulate these muscles in the same way, the study found.

The NHS website already recommends daily pelvic floor exercises for women who struggle to orgasm during sex – believed to affect around one in five women in the UK.

And the benefits don’t only end there as two-inch heels were also found to reduce the risk of urinary issues and embarrassing bladder leaks.

In a report on the results, published in the journal Translational Andrology and Urology, researchers said: ‘Problems with pelvic floor muscles can lead to sexual dysfunction, as well as incontinence and pain.

‘But our results showed two-inch heels might help women to train these muscles.’

Many young women prefer wearing heels to make them look ‘taller and more fashionable’.

However, researchers warned that wearers should still always take care, as heels can result in falls and various musculoskeletal disorders.
