It would be true to say that I have, for a very long time loved guys in glasses. More than that, I am turned on by a man who wears glasses. I am also fascinated by the slightly more obscure reasons a person needs glasses to function.
I have a slight real obsession with the whole eye sight / glasses thing. Almost my first venture into online chat was a glasses kink site. This is a real admission since I have never told Master about this and he will be reading and thinking “what the fuck?’
So for a back story. In primary school we had our eyes tested. Someone had decided I had a problem and needed testing for colour blindness. This was something I was unlikely to have given that it is uncommon in girls. I had at that time developed something of a ‘tick’ which involved me feeling the need to twitch. The test was negative.
Fast forward about a year, I had started a new school and was learning the clarinet. I wasn’t very good, but giving me the benefit of the doubt the teacher suggested that my problems were grounded in my inability to be able to see the music. She had a point. It turned out I had a squint, discovered too late for eye patches, exercises or whatever but sadly my musical talent wasn’t down to my eye sight.
Even though I was intrigued by my glasses, I didn’t want to wear them, instead I carried on in a world where I greeted people I didn’t know and ignored people I did. It wasn’t until I wanted to learn to drive that I actually wore the glasses that my parents bought for me. Then, having passed my test I abandoned them. All the time, due to the squint viewing the world in some kind of 2D, fuzzy haze. It wasn’t that I couldn’t see, but more that I only saw things with one eye. At some point I ‘saw’ the light and got glasses full time and then contacts.
An optician told me that normal people saw in 3d, and with my glasses on showed me what that looked like. I was in my late 20’s. My reaction was contact lenses.
I think I became obsessed with vision and what different people saw from that point. I joined an early forum and chat room at that point and found people who had similar interests. The people there greeting you not with ASL (age, sex, location) but with ASPx (age, sex, prescription).
I also found people who in hindsight are stranger than anyone I have met on a BDSM site. People who wear contact lenses to make them appear near or far sighted and then wear glasses to correct this. But many more who have a real fetish for people who genuinely need glasses and wear them. I suspect however that many of the people who told others that they fitted the required criteria were fake, just like many of the BDSM chat sites. Personally as is now the case, I was attracted to people with other attributes as well.
Nowadays I am older and more comfortable wearing glasses, there is no getting away from the need for one thing.
I do find glasses and whatever eye condition goes with them fascinating. I know from my own experience, that people can judge that your prescription is ‘weak’ without understanding the complexity of that prescription. I know that having one eye that is long sighted and one short sighted confuses the brain. The simplicity and unpleasantness of being short or near sighted intrigues me. Almost to the point that I can understand those people who try to recreate it.
What is more, I fancy men who wear glasses. But only if they are attractive to me anyway.
