Can someone please tell me why heels are SO awesome?

I have looked around the Web but I still really have not found a satisfying explanation of why high heels make females seem so much more sexual and exciting. Surely it cannot be just that it shapes their legs and makes their butts stick out a bit more!! There HAS to be more to it.

And I also don't agree with the idea from some that it is because it means they cannot run away. When I salivate over a babe in heels at no stage does the thought that she cannot run away ever enter my mind. That has NOTHING to do with it.

There is something else. Something magical. Something that has not been worked out yet.
