"Bedroom eyes" nghĩa là gì?

'Bedroom eyes' = 'cặp mắt (trong) phòng ngủ' refer to a heavy-lidded or half-shut eye, reminiscent of a hazy, dreamy look shared during intimate moments. It's also sometimes used to describe when a person looks at another with sexual longing or a method of putting on eye makeup that makes a woman look seductive -> nghĩa là ánh mắt/cặp mắt đầy nhục cảm, gợi tình (đẹp một cách bí hiểm và xác thịt).

Ví dụ
The stripper (vũ nữ thoát y) greeted me with bedroom eyes when I was handing her my money.

With bedroom eyes, she again started to massage her swollen, sensitive nipples (núm vú, đầu vú) with his cum.

With her long blonde hair, bedroom eyes and vivacious (sôi nổi, hoạt bát) personality, Darlene Gentry was the picture of a Texas beauty queen.

I applaud her for not doing the cliché, bedroom-eyes portrait but I do find her picture suggestive (khêu gợi, gợi những ý nghĩ tà dâm). It suggests she has just tripped over some rusting farm implement while wandering behind the barn (kho thóc, chuồng gia súc; ngôi nhà thô sơ; nơi/nhà để xe).

Chắc do biến đổi khí hậu

chúng ta đang ở giữa một cuộc 'suy thoái tình dục' - mọi người ngày càng ít làm tình :)

...I expect they were busy watching Big Brother. Or texting on their Nokias.

Since the 90s, in the US, the proportion (tỷ lệ) of men who masturbated (thủ dâm) in a given week has doubled to 54% and women to 26%.

I blame vibrator technology (công nghệ dương vật giả) and online porn (phim khiêu dâm trên mạng). Perhaps. There is little evidence that it is addictive, but, as one researcher put it, it might be “taking the edge off” people’s libido (sự ham muốn thú vui xác thịt, dục tình, dục năng).

Most sex happens within couples, but young people are coupling up less  (ít hẹn hò) – that’s another thing. And they are more likely to live with their parents (sống với bố mẹ). Plus they may be nervous about making romantic advances... 17% of Americans aged 18 to 29 believed that a man asking a woman out for a drink “always” or “usually” constituted sexual harrassment (quấy rối tình dục).

Do say: “Perhaps we need a central bank to stimulate the sexual economy.”
Don’t say: “Lowering the price of alcohol ought to do it.”
