do people wear glasses during sex or is it just like you’re blind and everthing’s a surprise
As a glasses wearer, we do both. I like to see during sex, so usually I leave them on. However sometimes they get in the way, so I have to take them off. We tend to do the glasses dance quite often
They are also sometimes frustrating when you’re trying to snuggle or flop dramatically on someone
When I first started dating my ex he used to want me to take my glasses off when we were making out, because he worried that the frames would poke him in the face. That’s really not how glasses work though? I think at most the outer part of my lens would press against the top of his cheek.
Also, what kind of sex is going on has a impact! Some kinds of sex/sexual positions leave my lenses smudged to all hell if I leave them on, while with others they’re perfectly safe.
The articles linked/ quoted in the article I wrote are all perfectly viable secondary sources that discuss exactly what you’re talking about, which is where the idea came from and possibilities as to why. Are you looking for primary? I’m sure not going to read Evan’s entire massive four volume series on Knossos but here’s an excerpt you might find relevant. Someone literally just scanned the book, so it’s not a searchable PDF, sadly. There’s a foreword to the excerpt that talks about his other writings if you really wanted to go through those.
That post was (to me, graduate trained in classics) one of the most mind-explodey things ever. Professors tell us this and we just take it for granted.
Also thanks for the link to that scan, wow! Holy primary sources.
It’s one of the things I hold up as an example of how things taught in classrooms as academic canon are often a hundred years out of date. And it’s taught as a kind of Absolute Truth, when it is challengeable on every level, basically, and there are tons of papers on it. But the only people who ever see them are usually the same five people on earth who also write them, and are esoteric specialists in the field.
Also, no prob and YAY!!! I think a prof probably scanned it for a class reading.
Since I have your attention, you are pretty A+ yourself. I enjoy it when you reblog posts and add your own two cents to the topic.
