It turns out people really do make passes at those who wear glasses.
A new survey shows that those who wear glasses are significantly more like to have an affair than those without.
Extra-marital dating website IllicitEncounters.com surveyed its members and found a sweeping majority are bespectacled, with 82% saying they find the look attractive in a potential partner.
The company asked 800 members with a whopping 74% of its members wearing eye glasses and researchers think it may be linked to wanting to live out a fantasy, namely sexy secretary.
"I love a woman in glasses," said one member surveyed, who went only by the name Frederick. "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”
