Socks are sexy

“One can never have enough socks,” said Dumbledore. “Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn’t get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books.”

Books are indeed a fabulous gift but socks, well socks are magical. Whether they are little black lace ones with bows. Knee high paisley patterns or thigh high stripes. Socks are a joyous thing. The more coloured and patterned they are the more they will make you smile. Sock are fun, socks are playful and socks are sexy.

Socks are just as sexy on men

Now I know what you are thinking, I am talking about socks on women and well yes I am a woman and so from my own perspective that is indeed what I am thinking about but the right socks on men work too. There is something about a guy in just a shirt and his socks that I find hugely appealing. Is he dressing or undressing? Maybe it is the urgency of the moment which has inspired him to only divest of certain key items of clothing. Whatever it is, there is something sexy and yet also adorable about it.

Then there are the suit types, they all kind of look the same when it comes down to it but it is the ones who when they sit down you get a flash of wild looking socks that make me smile. I always think that those guys are more likely to be a little more fun than the ones who stick with the standard black to match the standard suit.

I do appreciate that it is harder for men to rock the sock look but socks on women are just plain hot and the types of socks you can wear are limitless, from little ankle ones with a tiny frill on them that remind you of your school days to thigh high knitted ones that not only keep you warm but look sexy whilst they are doing it.

Lets talk science

Now this all might sound a bit silly but there is actually a scientific reason why socks are sexy. Gert Holstege, M.D., Ph.D., chairman of the Center for Uroneurology at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands was conducting a study into the activity in the brain during both male and female orgasm. During the study participants complained about getting cold feet due to the temperature of the room so Gert Holstege started offering them socks to wear.

What he discovered was that the percentage of couples that managed to achieve orgasm went from 50% to 80% when they were wearing socks and this was true of both men and women. This supported his other findings that fear and anxiety were the biggest barriers in the brain to achieving orgasm particularly in women. The brain scans showed clearly that in the female orgasm activity is greatly reduced in all areas of the brain both conscious and sub-conscious that deal with anxiety, fear and danger signals. Clearly cold feet tap into that part of the brain and make it feel vulnerable.

More to socks than just keeping your feet warm

Being someone who suffers from very poor circulation and spends most of the winter wearing way more clothes than anyone else, this scientific research came as no surprise to me because I have always found it nearly impossible to orgasm if I am cold and that is doubly true of my feet. When we go to play events in the winter, and even the summertime too sometimes, this is England after all. I always try to remember to pop a pair of fabulous socks into the play bag just in case. Cold feet are literally a guarantee for a disappointing time and that is not just the case for orgasms but for kink play too. I have even been known to call a halt to things because I just can’t relax enough to enjoy it because my feet are cold. Socks are the sexiest cure for this problem ever!

Where do I get sexy socks?

So now I have convinced you that socks are sexy where should you go to get some?

Well if you are in the USA you need look no further than the aptly named Sock Dreams. They really do have all your socks needs sown up, excuse the pun, from these adorable ankle socks with Venice Lace to these snazzy pinstripe thigh highs. There are handy sizing tips on most of their items and even cater for plus size in some of their lines. They also lots of stuff suitable for men too. Oh and shipping to the UK is a bargain $5 and I will confess I have ordered from them in the past. I never incurred extra import duty with them but it is something to be mindful of when ordering.

For those of you in the UK who want to indulge their love of socks lots of the high street shops have now started selling a small selection of knee and thigh high socks but if you are looking for something a little different that I recommend you try Etsy where I found this glorious black and white creations and as well as these cute Lavender knee high socks but if money was no object in my house I would definitely buy myself these awesome over the knee hand knitted beauties.

Whatever your budget though, now is the perfect time of year to expand your sock collection because not only are socks are sexy but science says socks are orgasmic.
