Are Women Sexy in Glasses? The men have spoken! Part 1

Hot or Not in specs? The age old question that has pondered great minds of countless souls. We DARED to ask men the question and the results were provocative to say the least.

1. Do men make passes at girls that wear glasses?

YES… YES they do!  90% of men said that the old saying “Men DON’T make passes at women in glasses” is dead and gone.  We couldn’t agree more.


2. So what kind of glasses turn on guys the most?

45% of men said Sexy sunglasses really got their testosterone pumping.  This is not too much of a surprise since guys associate sunglasses with ladies in beach attire. The boys were predictable to say the least. However, the RX glasses were a more interesting story.  Guys clearly love “GEEK CHIC”.  Oh how they pine for a dolled up lady in big geeky glasses.  So girls it’s time to tap into your inner nerd. 

3. Who is the men’s “fantasy” woman in glasses?

A note to the ladies…if you want to get a man excited, dress up as a sexy librarian!  50% of men found the Librarian (a little nice and a lot naughty) as THE “fantasy” woman in glasses.  Men appear to like their fantasy women smart and nerdy.  

The sweet College Coed in specs took second place in our poll with a quarter of the men ready run for the nearest college dormitory.  But guys like their “cougars” too.  More than 10% of guys chose their English Lit professor.  So no matter how you slice it ladies, when men dream of women in specs, it’s “back to school”!

4. What do men think of bespectacled women in the bedroom?

Our boys were true to form once again.  A third of men want you to leave your glasses on!!!  We didn’t ask about the shoes.  Another third would toss those glasses on the nightstand and get right down the business. 10% want to take their Librarian fantasy to the next level and have you roll play it out with them.  We will leave it to your imagination to see what fine you impose for those overdue books!!!

The bottom line is that men LOVE women in glasses.  Ladies toss your inhibitions but not your specs.  Be bold. Be beautiful. And be spectacled.  Next time in the Eye Candy Blog we will share what the ladies have to say about guys.

See you at Eye Candy!  Stay Sweet!

Buying sunglasses… The REAL Scoop. Part 1

By Eye Candy Marina

How to feel healthy?

Summer is here and it’s time to chill by the park or the pool. What about your eyes? They want to chill too but it’s tough with all those nasty rays out there. While we don’t like to cover up on beach, we should cover those baby blues! 

Sunglasses and feeling healthy

The American Academy of Ophthalmology advocates wearing sunglasses anytime you're outdoors, but particularly when:

  • It's summer and it’s sunny.  That statement should be followed by the words… DUH?  But remember this… Ultraviolet rays from the sun CANNOT BE SEEN and affect us on cloudy days too.  How many of us have gotten a sunburn at Cedar Point on an overcast day?
  • UV rays are bad not just for the skin but the eyes too. UV rays can potentially inflict permanent damage on the retina and cornea.  Not good! So when the weather guy on FOX 8 is squawking about a high UV index… it’s a time to pull out your shades.
  • You're at the beach or near water.  Again… the words DUH should follow this statement.  Remember the sun’s rays reflect off the water and right into our eyes.
  • You're outside at high elevations.  Just think about it your closer to the sun.
  • You're participating in snow sports.  “Snow blind” is not just a thinly veiled drug reference from an old Black Sabbath song.  Snow glare can hurt your peepers!

In addition, if you have an eye disease, have had cataract surgery or are taking photosensitizing drugs, you should wear sunglasses whenever you go outside.  If you have already had issues with your eyes, don’t put them under any additional risk or strain.

What’s the deal with Cheap Sunglasses?

Sunglasses are available everywhere, making our decision of choice that much harder.  We need to realize that not shades are made the same, which means that the ones you buy at the gas station help neither with your vision, nor with the sun protection.  These glasses are made with the plastic lenses that don’t have any UV or UVB filters.  In all actuality, “Cheap” sunglasses can be harmful to your vision.

While we love the ZZ Top song, “Cheap Sunglasses”, that is no way to go!!!

Are proper sunglasses really worth it?

In short, YES.  Besides the amazing style and complements you will receive (to be covered in Part 2 of our article), you are going to get the different technologies, which offers more comfort, durability and performance.  The material used in your sunglass lenses will affect their clarity, weight, and durability.  Also the better the sunglasses, the more likely it has several layers of coatings.  These can include a hydrophobic coating to repel water, an anti-scratch coating to improve durability and an anti-fog coating for humid conditions or high-energy activities.

What about Polarized lenses?

A high quality pair of sunglasses can include polarized lenses.  A polarized lens offers the following advantages over non-polarized lenses:

  • Improves visual comfort.  Fancy way of saying they are easier on the eyes.
  • Improves contrast and visual clarity.
  • Reduces eyestrain.
  • Allows for true perception of colors.
  • Reduces reflections and eliminates glare.

Polarized lenses are perfect in so many ways but there is one hitch.  Polarized lenses do make looking at your digital devices more difficult. Things can look a little “funky”.

What about getting prescription sunglasses?

With prescription sunglasses you double your pleasure. You get all the advantages above plus you can actually see perfectly.  Some talk of wearing their non-RX sunnies over contacts, but that is not practical at the pool or the beach.  Once you get a pair of RX sunglasses…. You’ll never look back.
