What was believed the relationship between sex and scarce eyelashes?

View Answer
The Romans believed eyelashes fell out of excessive sex.
According to Pliny: “There are eyelashes on both sides of human eyes; women’s [eyelashes] are actually commonly dyed with cosmetics: they strive for beauty to such an extent that they even color their eyes. … It is said, not unjustly, that the [eyelashes] fall off in the case of those people who have a great deal of sexual intercourse.”
