Are glasses a turn off?
I imagine that depends on the "eye of the beholder." In Europe, wearing glasses is often considered a subtle sign of intelligence and education. But in the U.S., wearing glasses (especially in young people) is often seen as an impediment to a fully independent and active lifestyle. So the same person could appear a nerd or an intellectual depending on the expectations of an observer.
