The eccentric performer Dorian Electra, whom you already know from educational videos about the difficult fate of the clitoris and the evolution of vibrators, has dedicated her new song and video to the history of heels. In The Dark History of High Heels, published by Refinery29, Elektra demonstrates what heels looked like in different eras, who wore them, and how high heels are associated with ideas of “femininity”.

It is believed that the first heels for practical reasons began to be worn by the horsemen of the Persian army, who began to make special shoes that did not slip out of stirrups. Heels were in vogue among French aristocrats, and they were worn mainly by men, including the "sun king" Louis XIV himself. The infamous Queen Marie Antoinette was also a fan of heels, in contrast to the emancipated women of the 20th century, who believed that heels were incompatible with an active lifestyle. However, under the influence of pornography, heels became fashionable again, became associated with eroticism and became an integral attribute of the patriarchal image of a “real woman”.

Elektra tells us all this with songs and dances in three minutes, and the video ends with a triumph of equality and the destruction of stereotypes about “femininity”: our contemporaries rebel against the obligatory wearing of heels, and clothes are no longer divided into “male” and “female”.
