Am reading a romance book & they just started a sexytimes scene and one MC deliberately leaves the other one’s glasses ON so he can see!! Instead of automatically taking them off and flinging them somewhere!!! ❤️

It’s such a tiny thing but it’s SO annoying to constantly have glasses removed in books like it’s not important for all parties to be able to see each other CLEARLY

@tozka i think a lot of non-glasses wearers just assume that everyone is nearsighted, in which case taking your glasses off makes more sense?

@Satsuma ha, maybe! But there’s also a lot of “the glasses are physically getting in the way and I don’t want to bother figuring out how to accommodate them when we make out so off they go” in romance books which is equally annoying


@tozka esp considering that this is text, the glasses wont be in the way unless someone writes them to be that way

@Satsuma @tozka heh I'll admit to doing the "take other person's glasses off for kissing" thing IRL, but I was a novice kisser at the time and we've since kissed plenty of times with both our glasses on. And I certainly wouldn't fling glasses carelessly away, even indoors, that's just a rude disregard of not only their property but the accommodation they need.
