Are you blinded from finding love and a great sex life because you wear glasses?
Spectacles wearers might find it's time to invest in contact lenses or laser treatment, says a recent study commissioned by Perfect Vision in Australia. It suggests wearing glasses can spoil your sex life and lower your luck in love.
The online study surveyed 1015 Australians aged 18 years and older and revealed 84 percent of glasses wearers would never wear their specs during sex and 55 percent of the people surveyed said they would never wear their glasses when going in for a kiss.
Women are more self-conscious than men about wearing glasses when having sex. Eighty-nine percent of women stated they would always remove their glasses before having sex compared to 79 percent of men.
But surely you'd remove them, along with your socks anyway... right?
Wearing specs could also affect your pick up rate the survey suggested, as 45 percent of glasses wearers would most likely remove their glasses for a first date.
So are you blinded from finding love? 79 percent of Australians are wooed by the attractiveness and contact of a person's eyes but 61 percent of the people surveyed admitted they notice a person's glasses before they notice their eyes.
Only 6 percent of respondents think their partner would look better with glasses.
But it’s not all bad news for glasses wearers, scientists have reported that short-sightedness is linked to intelligence, agreeableness, openness and well-educated people.
Your say for spectacle wearers: what do you think of this study? Just a way to get people to sign up for laser eye surgery or real research?
