This one has always bothered me.
The Dom is supposed to look out for the welfare of the sub and make sure that anything he or she asks the sub to do will not cause harm... then they turn around and say that the sub *has* to wear shoes that will more than likely cause physical damage to the sub. This just not make sense. It's just pure selfishness on the part of the Dom because he thinks it *looks* sexy. What a bunch of crock.
I have two aunts in my family that have chronic back and leg problems from wearing heels for years when they were younger and they didn't wear them 22 hours a day. I have a friend who has no end to foot problems for the same reason.
Here is a partial quote from a book on how to choose high heel shoes. Note number 5 folks!
1) You should consult with your physician and podiatrist to discuss any of the information of interest to you in this book and your specific situation, before wearing any high heel shoes and boots.
2) The aim of the book is only to report on the subject matter of wearing high heels. There is no intent to advise, advocate, encourage, endorse, promote, or recommend in any manner or way this dangerous practice to anyone. Furthermore, all information contained within this book is presented for entertainment purposes only.
3) None of the information contained within this book was validated in any way, to determine whether it is fact or fiction; useful or not; and helpful or harmful.
4) None of the statements (in whole or in part) contained within this book are to be considered as correct, factual, or true, or be construed as such. None of the information contained within this book should be taken seriously or regarded as such. The reader should research and verify any of the information, contained within this book, that is of interest to her.
5) WEARING HIGH HEELS IS DANGEROUS TO THE WEARER'S HEALTH and serious injuries can and should be expected as a result. Anyone who wears high heels must do so at their own expense and must accept full responsibility for whatever outcome, including any bodily injuries and death, that may occur as result of wearing high heels.
