Definition of short-eyes


  • printed pornographic material. Incarcerated convicts/detainees (and perhaps confined patients as well) "read" or examine their pornographic magazines so close to their faces (so as to not reveal their contents) that the inmates appear to be short-sighted. Consequently, the pornographic are termed "short-eyes." The inmates rationalize (like ostriches) that no one passing by will realize what is being avidly absorbed when the material is held so close to the face/eyes. Used in the US state of New York.
