Glam Slam: Sex Or Stilettos?

Shoe lover Carrie Bradshaw would love this poll!

A new study reveals that one in five women said new shoes turned them on more than their lover. Hmmm. I thought that number might have been higher! Come on, who doesn’t like new shoes?

One thousand women were polled for the survey by shoebuy.com and there are some fun tidbits.

50 percent of women surveyed said they would lie to their significant other about the price they really paid for shoes. Luckily, I don’t have to do that with my husband. His computer and car hobbies are far more expensive than my shoe habit. And even if they weren’t, he’s not that guy… he likes for me to treat myself.

Almost half of the women admitted that they had judged others based on their shoes. Guilty! And of those women, half admitted they had judged someone negatively by their shoes. I am women enough to admit that I am guilty of this as well. What can I say? I’m a shoe snob.

The average American woman owns 17 pairs of shoes, but 1 in 4 women will not take off their heels, no matter how much pain they are in. That I can relate to!

So back to the old sex or stilettos question. Which do you prefer? My friend Susan came up with the perfect compromise… have sex in your new stilettos!
