Good news for glasses wearing chicks!

It was once believed that men don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses, it turns out the saying is rather outdated as more and more people find the bespectacled look attractive.

According to new research conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s largest extra-marital dating site wearing glasses can increase your likelihood of having an affair.

The study surveyed 800 of its members and found that 74% of affair-seekers wore glasses compared to 69% of the general public*

The study also found that 82% of members thought glasses looked attractive.

In addition those surveyed were asked how much they spent on glasses and found that a woman spends £120-£150, whereas a man would only spend £50-£90.

It is interesting to note that more of the cheating population wear glasses then those that don’t. Perhaps the fact that a large proportion of men and women find glasses attractive means that those who wear glasses have more sexual interest than those that don’t – making them a target for someone wanting to live out a fantasy with a bespectacled lover.

Fredrick a male member on the site said “I love a woman in glasses. It makes an otherwise tame girl look a little wild and powerful – glasses immediately make someone look more confident and intelligent. Smart teamed with sexy is unbeatable. Every man’s thought about sleeping with a girl in frames, there’s just a certain je ne sais quoi about the whole thing”


Claire Page spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said “Er, yes please! Men in glasses are divine, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, David Beckham? Hello! It’s interesting to note that more of the cheating population wear glasses then those who don’t – with such a large proportion of people agreeing that glasses are sexy, it is hardly surprising.

Glasses are becoming a sex symbol – women who wear glasses feel more powerful and seductive, and men are obviously lapping it up, we’ve all heard about the secretary fantasy. Someone wearing glasses may also be more tempted to have an affair as they will potentially receive more attention than someone glass-less! Let’s just say the days of 20:20 vision being hot is well and truly not, give me a four-eyed god any day”
