Stiletto Workouts: Finally, a Way to Get Skinny and Break Your Foot Bones Stiletto Workouts: Finally, a Way to Get Skinny and Break Your Foot Bones

Here's a thing I won't be doing in 2013: Stiletto workouts, the technically-still-a-virgin-if- you-don't-count-in-the-butt cousin of the pole dancing workout.

Sexual Heeling Sexual Heeling

Look, no one wears 4" heels cause she thinks they are good for her health! We know heels fuck with knees and backs and tendons, create hammer toes and bunions and basically cripple you for life. The problem is, for some of us, that moment when you slip on your first pair of pumps is a watershed: damn the torpedoes,…

Let us say from…

Raise your hand if you think that high heels are good for your feet. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? That's what we thought.
