Chus Martinez On Glasses Fetishism

Image

Glass fetishism is a fetishistic attraction to people wearing prescription glasses, sunglasses, or cosmetic contact lenses.

Image

Glasses fetishism also encompasses the act of wearing glasses or the glasses themselves in cases where they are ‘seen’ as sexually arousing.

Image

Other related activities include wearing glasses during sexual acts and ejaculation on glasses.

Image

Glasses fetishism may be linked to a sexual attraction to librarians – who are perceived as intellectual and as belonging to a profession dominated by females who wear classes  (although neither is necessarily always the case).

Image

Popular culture in the form of myths about the sale of soiled “sexy librarian’s knickers (panties)” etc., often links glasses fetishism and librarian fetishism to underwear fetishism.

Image

Related fetishised sexual attractions that often involve glasses and intellectual women are for schoolmarms (women teachers – especially those who are strict and old-fashioned) and art curators.

Image

Art curators are generally perceived as more fashionable and less frumpy than librarians or schoolmarms, and generally appeal less to those with masochistic tendencies and more to those with a sunglasses rather than prescription glasses fetish.

Image

Contemporary ideas about the art curator being fashionable seem to be based more on the expansion of curation as a postgraduate university subject (studied mostly by women in their twenties – and so those seemingly hip curators are in fact mostly students) than on the slightly older women and men who actually work as art curators in galleries (and who are probably more likely wear prescription glasses than sunglasses).
