The sunglasses affect is a condition involving people who wear sunglasses, and the consequences of such can apply to both sexes. There is a general rule that people who wear sunglasses look more attractive. This applies especially to females. Males viewing a female or vice versa may think that the person wearing sunglasses is attractive, when in reality they may not be. This can be particularly devastating and emotionally crippling when the person you are staring at turns out to be not attractive. However, if the person is actually as attractive as the sunglasses hint at, the results are most satisfying. Hence, the sunglasses affect can be both positive and negative, but it is generally linked to the negative side.
