Are glasses sexy? Of course!

While arguing that glasses -- contrary to what everyone seems to think -- can enhance a woman's attractiveness, Charles Taylor of Salon writes:

We are all tied to the belief that glasses denote intelligence, while not being a guarantee of it. And maybe, where women are concerned, the belief that glasses are unsexy is a subtle way of saying that brains aren't sexy...

Maybe it is, and that's a shame. Intelligence sure is sexy, and so are nice glasses. My wife looks great in hers.

(Full disclosure: I wear glasses too, but it's not up to me to decide if they improve how I look.)
