I received this as a gift. What do I… use them for? Riding motorcycles? Skiing? I’m confused.

They appear to be fashion sunglasses, made by a company with the most obnoxious copywriting ever.

You use it for protection from the sun. They are intended to be a fashion accessory in addition to blocking UV; no extreme sport required, but you'd probably want to use them mainly outdoors.

I would see if you can get the "GET-LAID-GUARANTEE" shown on that store page in writing.

Apparently, based on the verbiage of the site, to "look cool," "get laid," and "fuck a lot."

So, basically, for any and every purpose you feel like. Or use them as a rickety drink coaster.

They are for looking fly. Or, looking like a fly.

Pretty sure those are for Burning Man.

This is just such a sublimely funny sentence.

The website says you use them “to communicate how radicalized you are, how much you are getting laid and how much you WILL BE getting laid.” So yeah they’re for doing that

Saw someone wearing those today.
I assumed it was a fashion statement with a tip of the hat to Pride month.

They do not say by whom, so ... it might not be a feature.

I don't think it will help you to be successful in the procurement of sex unless you find a narcissist who can enjoy his reflection and live out his life long dream of fucking himself.

Otherwise, skiing.

Wow that website copy drips with assholery... but they will block UV, yes. Looks as if you can wear them over your regular glasses.

Wear them to every damn Pride event you can find, my friend

Flummoxing facial recognition software? I think the whole "getting laid" angle is just to keep the government off their backs. /s
